    Have you seen the new nikon compact with a built-in projector? Sounds like a cool idea.

    Thoughts?

    That sounds like a great idea.
    Digital camera is more and more multi-tasking now...

    Projectors? They went the way of slides surely! Wink

    You don't think it's a bit gimmicky? I quite like the idea as long as it works. Projectors are still up and at 'em, Epson have some pretty cool ones at the moment.

    Looks like the manufacturers have upped the pixels as far as anyone needs, crammed the standard features in and are now looking outside the box a bit for new stuff. So we're seeing 3D resurface and video being introduced more often, and now a projector.

    Out of all the surprise additions this one was the least expected. I can see the idea being really useful for business presentations. Who wants to carry a projector around to meetings etc? But also for family get togethers like the old slide projector. Whether the enthusiast photographer will buy into it is another thing. Substituting the SLR to take picture to use this feature may not be the first thing on his/her mind.

    The bebo/youtube user may want one to show off their video antics at a larger size than the standard screen. And if it was in a mobile phone I think it may do even better as the download photo and video jokes would be enlarged to friends' convenience.

    It is all dependent on how good the quality is, I'm not sure how it's going to project to 40in and be bright enough to view. It will be interesting to see when it arrives for test.

    Manufacturers have been working on these small projectors for a while now, expect to see them in phones, netbooks and many other devices soon! Similar with 3D technologies, which are now very very good.

    Looks neat to me, but as others have said, it all hangs on the quality of the projected image. If the projector works well, then it is rather a bargain, given the price of projectors. However, it is only VGA, so I am not sure it could be used for impromptu business presentations. At least when someone shows you their holiday pictures, they will dim the lights, allowing you to surreptitiously doze off.

    It's nice to see Nikon being innovative for a change, and not having to follow Canon's lead.
