Nikon S1000pj projector-camera now shipping! (updated)
One of the most gadget-bait cameras of 2009 is the projector-bearing Nikon Coolpix S1000pj! And now it has started shipping, at its expected starting price of $430. You can get it at this price by third-party sellers at Amazon such as Beach Camera and Ritz Camera. Amazon herself expects to have it in-stock on Wednesday September 23.
UPDATE: A review of the camera has just been posted at Photoxels. As they say, perfect timing!
The camera was announced in August 2009, and is the first _digital_ (foreshadowing) camera to feature a built-in projector. Also of interest, Nikon issued an advisory on September 1st saying that due to demand exceeding supply, the camera launch had been delayed. Well, it doesn't look very delayed now :)
