You’re shooting digital photos and video at a family gathering or a party at a friend’s house; and, of course, everyone wants to see what you’ve shot. The best you could do, until the introduction of the Nikon Coolpix S1200pj camera, was to use the camera’s small LCD screen as a viewer. Everyone’s crowding around you and your camera and most aren’t able to see much. Sure, you could take the time to transfer them to a computer or tablet, but still, only a limited number of people can see the screen well.
Now, you can amaze your family and friends when you bring your Coolpix S1200pj because it is an instant party starter. Not only is it a high-end compact, with the best of Nikon technology at this price point, but also it contains its own projection system. Forget about being in the center of a crowd of people straining to see a camera’s LCD screen or fiddling with computers and uploads, the Coolpix S1200pj is capable of projecting whatever you shoot onto a flat surface as large as 60 inches diagonally.
Just captured a cute moment of one of the kids during the holidays? Maybe, you caught a friend being weird on camera? Whatever has just happened in your life, everyone in the room can see it when you slip the Coolpix S1200pj into the projection mode. Suddenly, you’ve created a big screen TV on the wall that shows everyone why they are so happy they are together.
What you project with the Coolpix S1200pj is not limited to what you just shot. You can also show everyone other photos and movies, and even Web content, when you connect the camera to an iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch®, iPod nano® or iPod® photo. You can do more than just project raw images; you can create fully produced slideshows with the camera’s built-in music and graphics capabilities.
The Nikon Coolpix S1200pj projection technology is certainly a party starter, but you can also use it as a serious presentation device for school and business. Your grade-point average may receive a nice boost if you prepare a visual report for a class, place your S1200pj on your desk and project it for the entire class, and your teacher, to see. Want to impress the boss or a client? Enhance your proposals with a big-image presentation without the need for other projection equipment. Imagine being at a lunch meeting with a client and projecting your latest ideas or facts and figures on the wall of the restaurant (but probably not at 60 inches)? The Coolpix S1200pj could help you close more sales faster.
For professional photographers, the Coolpix S1200pj is also a great business tool. Wedding photographers can show potential clients a projected image of samples. Fashion photographers could use it to project large images on a studio wall or backdrop to review with designers, models and clients. Maybe, you’ve been hired to photograph a corporate event. Ask you client to allow you to project photos and video you’ve just shot a few times during the event and those in attendance will insist that you are hired on the spot for the next gathering.
Most importantly, Nikon has made it easy to shoot content to project with the Coolpix S1200pj. Its 14.1-megapixel CCD sensor and 5x wide-angle optical zoom lens (28–140mm equivalent) deliver sharp, clear and colorful photos and video. For a compact camera, it has a large LCD screen: 3-inch, high-resolution (460,000 dots) with anti-reflection coating, making it easier to see what you are shooting, even in strong light. The Coolpix S1200pj records 720 HD video with stereo sound.
