Nikon Coolpix S1200pj Review
Review posted 4/17/2012
|While the S1200pj is heavy on the wallet at $429.95 USD, it offers great performance, image quality, and plenty of easy to use exposure options.

Nikon's S1200pj is one of six new Coolpix cameras debuting last September. Steve's had a rare opportunity to get hands on time with each of them. The S1200pj is the third generation "pj" camera (behind the S1000pj and the S1100pj) and features a 14.1-megapixel CCD sensor, a 5x wide angle optical zoom lens, and a 3.0 inch VGA screen.
Included with ever S1200pj will be an adapter cable to connect the camera's projector to any iDevice (iPhone, iPod, iPad). It allows you to control the projector from you iDevice, and not only can you view videos and photos from the camera itself, but you can also watch movies and photo sideshows stored on said iDevice
