Other features include a 5x zoom lens, 12.1-megapixel sensor, and 2.7-inch LCD screen. The camera has 16 scene modes for still pictures and four movie modes with sound for recording video. The device also comes with 36 MB of internal memroy and a USB connection.

The S1000pj can take about 220 pictures on a battery charge and supports SD or SDHC memory cards for adding external storage. The camera weighs 5.5 ounces without a battery and is four inches wide, 2.5 inches high, and slightly less than an inch thick. The device is available only in black.

The S1000pj is scheduled for release in September. It will be available through Nikon retailers for $430.
