Nikon has unveiled a new camera that comes with a built-in projector, allowing users to share photos on any flat surface.

The Nikon Coolpix S1000pj is the first compact digital camera in the world to feature a built-in projector. According to the company, the camera is able to project photos or movies clips on any flat surface at up to 40 inches in size. Pictures can be projected individually, or as slide shows complete with music and effects. A handy projector stand is included, as well as a remote control that can be used to operate the projector or camera.

The projector has a brightness of up to 10 lumens, has a throw distance of approximately 26cm to 2m, will last for an hour, and has a VGA-equivalent resolution. The camera comes with a 5x zoom lens, macro shooting ability, and a 12-megapixel sensor. The COOLPIX S1000pj will be available in Black only.
