The Nikon Coolpix s1000pj is the world's first compact camera with an inbuilt projector.

Nikon Australia today announced the Coolpix s1000pj: the world’s first compact camera with a built-in projector. The Nikon Coolpix s1000pj digital camera can project photos and movie clips on to any flat surface at the press of a button. The images can be displayed at up to 40 inches in size (around one metre).

Pictures can be projected individually, or as a slideshow complete with music and digital effects. The Nikon Coolpix s1000pj will come bundled with a projector stand and a remote control that can be used to operate the camera and projector.

The Nikon Coolpix S1000pj can snap 12-megapixel photos and it has a 5x optical Nikkor zoom wide-angle lens (28mm to 240mm) and a 2.7in LCD. It can shoot photos at up to ISO 6400. The projector has a VGA resolution and a brightness rating of 10 lumens (the same brightness as many mini projectors).

Our colleagues at PC World US had some brief hands-on time with the Coolpix s1000pj. They reported that the projector works well in a dimly lit room, especially when images are projected on a blank white surface about a foot away from the camera. (The projector still produced visible images when projected onto a wall about 10 feet away, but they were less sharp and bright.)

The Coolpix s1000pj will be available in September for a recommended retail price of $699.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
