#1 compact flash

I would say soon Nikon will be relegated to the standard parts list. And we consumers benefit. How many dozens of features do modern digicams have that never get used. This has a fighting chance to get used more than many of the new features on digicams over the past few years.

It’s really a good thing that Nikon guys were able to pull something like this and this could start the ball rolling for other manufacturers. I too wrote about this cool gadget!

It’s odd that Nikon make excelent DSLRs and indeed seem to be the most popular brand with professional photograhers (at least if the pros I see are anything to go by) but their compact range is losing touch with reality. They seem to have completely lost the ability to build a good compact and just go for gimmicks. The worry is that this sort of thing may impact on the market for Nikon’s DSLRs. Will people really take seriously a brand that is associated with this sort of gimmickry? How long before their gimmick obsession infects their entry level DSLRs?

What we have here is a very average compact digital camera, coupled with a poor quality projector at a price that makes your eyes water. No matter how hard I try I can’t think of a set of circumstances that would occur frequently enough to justify the price. Actually I can’t think of a time such a feeble projector would be useful at all. It seems that the only potential market is that group of people who must have every new and fashionable gadget. Unfortunately for Nikon the S1000pj does not seem to have become fashionable since it hit the shops. Like most gadgets if it was going to catch on as the must have toy then it was going to be in the pre-christmas market and it seems to have failed. Of course by next christmas it will be old hat.

Come on Nikon. Get back on the horse and build a quality flagship for the Coolpix range, at the moment you have absolutely nothing.

I find my DSC-HX1 a suberb camera with a suberb lens.Which incidently is the successor to the Konica Minolta A200 which was the first SLR camera to include the ‘Tiltable LCD viewfinder.- A wonderful accessary. No matter the odd ‘Unique & odd facilities’ Those who complain do Not have to use them - They can catch up when they grow up.

@Mike Keegan

Quite apart from the fact that the A200 was very definitely NOT an SLR (and nor is the DSC-HX1) I fail to see the point of your post.

Are you suggesting that people are infantile because they can’t see the point of having a feeble projector built into a decidedly basic compact camera? Please clarify.

And while you’re at it learn what SLR means.
