Every digital camera is a spiritual descendent of Kodak’s iconic Brownie camera. This Coolpix also gets some of its technological DNA from the Kodak Carousel slide projector. Once you’ve snapped some photos or shot some video, you can slide open the camera’s second lens and project your creations onto a wall or other blank surface, permitting in-person show-and-tell almost anywhere. (An adapter lets you do the same with an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.) The sound is on the faint side, but the image–which can be up to 60″ in size–is surprisingly easy on the eyes.
