We've knocked the S1000pj down to a grade of C; its replacement is better and cheaper, so take a look at the S1100pj instead. Here's what we had to say about the S1000pj when it was released in fall 2009:

The coolest thing about the S1000pj is the built-in projector. Everything else is rather standard, but the projector is what makes this innovative camera stand out from the crowd. The projector can display photos or videos taken with the S1000pj on a wall or other surface at sizes up to 40-inches. That's impressive. It's also very expensive, as most first-wave technologies are. You're better off going with version 2, the S1100pj, which has a better projector, sleeker design, and lower price as of late 2010.

Nikon has long been one of the top manufacturers in the industry, and their products are still solid options today. The camera giant is continuously releasing new products with enhancements in image quality and performance.

It's hard to go wrong with a Nikon DSLR. With a different model available for every skill level from beginner to professional, Nikon's DSLR's have always been top notch. Their latest DSLRs have seen improved noise reduction, enhanced video quality and upgraded designs over cameras from just a few years ago.

Nikon made an interesting move in the realm of mirrorless cameras—instead of pushing for bigger sensors, Nikon instead has focused on speed. The Nikon 1 line cameras use a 1” sensor, which is larger than your average point-and-shoot but smaller than the Micro Four Thirds options. While the 1 line doesn't have much resolution, their cameras boast speeds upwards of 15 fps—no other mirrorless line currently comes close to that level of speed.

Nikon's compacts aren't as much of a sure thing as their DSLRs—some of their smaller cameras are quite impressive, while others are beaten out by competitors. We liked their higher end consumer point-and-shoots like the COOLPIX S6500, but be careful with their budget compacts. They offer quite a range of compact cameras, just be sure to read the reviews on the individual camera first.

Nikon offers a full range of cameras from tiny budget models to professional DSLRs. More often than not, if you go with a Nikon, you're getting a solid camera.
