"Oh, and you can’t connect the Coolpix S1000pj to a laptop and use it as a miniature projector"
The punchline on the last page! Wont be buying this then :(
Great review otherwise though, thanks.
Every now and again, you come across a product that makes you think: How on earth did they do that? Well, Nikon’s Coolpix S1000pj is such a beast, because it’s a compact digital camera with a built-in pico projector.

One figure that is consistently missing from digital camera reviews:
The active surface area, in square millimetres, of the CCD sensor array.
Put simply, the more mm² you have, the more charge you can store initially. The more charge you can store initially, the more photons of light you can allow to strike the sensor during exposure without saturating, and so the better contrast you can obtain.
mm² are more important than megapixels. My old FujiFilm 2MPx camera used to take better pictures (and may well still be doing for its new owner) than some 4MPx cameras, by virtue of its *huge* sensor array. The eye can't see more than 4 pixels per mm anyway, which is about 1MPx on an A4 sheet.

That clearly depends on how far away you view the print from (which is generally a function of print size) and how good your eyesight is.
Eye resolution is measured in "x" per arc-minute, so is independent of distance.
