I can see it having its uses . Maybe I could do a video with the D90 and plug the card into this compact and show the video on the wall :smile:It's a neat idea, certainly more useful than a gimmicky feature like face detection. If the optics are good (Nikon are very capable of making their Coolpix cams with good lenses as they did a few years ago), it might be worth owning.
I was wondering the same thing. Other than a powerpoint presentation at a low-tech meeting, I don 't see the use for it. Maybe a higher tech alternative to annoy friends with when showing travel pics instead of the old slide projector? :smile:I can see it having its uses .

Rumor has it that a hamster wheel can be attached to the right side of the camera. Runtime varies with the power unit used:They rate the battery life at 1 hour for slideshows . As with anything there are tradeoffs . Perhaps the charger will be able to be connected while it is running ?
Either way for someone that has a use for it they can get a spare battery .
Either way I reckon they will sell well for people who don't know the difference in image quality and think that 12 megapixels is better then 8 .Keep in mind that the "stand alone" function of the projector is fairly pointless as there are similar sized products on the market that do just that (and probably better, as well) for a lower price.
For the 'masses' I'm not sure on whether they could tell how good the reproduction is if they only have a compact .But as mentioned above, a lot will depend on how easy it is....and a lot on how good the reproduction is.
