Nikon S100pjNikon has revamped its projector-equipped camera to allow images stored on a computer to be viewed via the projector.

Nikon claims that the projector on board the Coolpix S1100pj is also 40% brighter than its predecessor, enabling images to be easier to see when projected against lighter surfaces, for example.

The 14.1-million-pixel S1100pj can be hooked up to a Mac or PC so that stored images or presentations can be viewed through the projector, explains Nikon.

Features include a 5x zoom lens (28-140mm equivalent) and a 3in (460,000 dot resolution) touch screen.

New digital effect modes include fisheye, background softening and selective colour highlighting for monochrome images.

The Nikon S1100pj will be available in black or green and will go on sale on 16 September, priced £349.99.
