Next Nikon Compact May Project Video

The replacement to Nikon’s COOLPIX S1000pj, which already has a unique projection mode to display still photographs, is rumored to move beyond the stills and into video. French photography magazine, Chasseur d’Images, reports that Nikon might even take it a step further by including a video input which will allow the camera to function as a conventional projector when hooked up to a computer — and perhaps an iPad or other devices.

Currently, the S1000pj has a projection size of 5 to 40 inches, which is plenty of real estate for sharing photos. As both a point-and-shoot camera and an extremely compact conventional projector, the S1000pj upgrade might prove to be a handy piece of equipment.
