VIDEO: Nikon COOLPIX S1000pj projector camera

Here's a brief look, in video form, of some of the features and functionality of Nikon's latest camera. It's got everything you'd expect from a premium COOLPIX model, with the surprising addition of a miniature projector.

There's also the more standard 12-megapixel sensor, 2.7-inch LCD, 5x optical zoom and video recording capabilities, as well as the usual bevy of face/blink/smile/red-eye detection features.
