Forget old school slide projectors, and gone will be the days of many faces squashed together looking at the playback image taken on a digital camera. There's a new nifty gadget in town.
Nikon has launched the world's first digital projector camera - the Coolpix S1000pj - which allows users to take digital photographs and then display them via the built-in projector on any flat surface.
The slim-line camera, due to go on sale in the UK in September, comes with a remote control and a projector stand.
It can project 220 shots or an hour's worth of film footage, meaning there's plenty of entertainment for the friends and family after a holiday.
Mike Pekelharing, of Nikon, said: "'It's packed with everything you need to take amazing photos as well as show off your pictures.
"Sharing photos or videos has never been so easy, or so much fun."
Extra features include auto-correction of strong shadows, while the lens is designed to reduce vibration.
Priced at £399.99, the Coolpix S1000pj boasts a picture quality of 12.1 megapixels, meaning the images can be blown up with high-definition quality.
Fortunately, it also has a 'skin softening' feature which 'smoothes out uneven skin tones' and a 'macro mode' for the dreaded extreme close-ups.
