Yeah everything is so canggih nowadays, huh!
I have to admit, iPhone and iPad are the greatest learning tools for Ayra, besides educational VCDs and books. But that's not all. I just discovered another gadget that I can use to teach my kid.
I was given this Nikon Coolpix S1100pj in violet. The camera comes in three other colors as well - black, silver and green.
To be honest, I had never seen a camera like this before. The Nikon Coolpix S1100pj is not like any regular compact camera because it has a built-in projector, which by the way, can make a cool flashcard for my kid (more on that later). It also comes with a remote control!

There are 17 scene modes which are Portrait, Landscape, Sports, Night portrait, Party/indoor, Beach, Snow, Sunset, Dusk/dawn, Night landscape, Close-up, Food, Museum, Fireworks show, Copy, Backlighting and Panorama assist. Here are some photos that I tested out using the different scene modes:
(who said I have flawless skin? Got bintik-bintik and chicken pox scars la on my forehead)
Night landscape mode
Now here comes my favorite part - the filter effects! You can apply a variety of effects on your captured photos using the digital filter such as Color options, Soft, Selective color, Cross screen, Fisheye or Miniature effect.
The Soft effect gives the picture a soft look by blurring the area surrounding the point that you tap and makes it as the main focus. So nice!
Ok that's creepy.

And sparkly heel.
My shoe looked like it's made of diamonds!!
There's also Glamour Retouch which can be used to soften the skin tone of faces detected in the picture and it makes the faces look smaller with bigger eyes, like it's been photoshopped! You can doodle and decorate your pictures as well with butterflies, rainbows, hearts, stars, add a frame, insert a date stamp and add a voice memo.
Of course the highlight of this camera is the projector. The built-in projector projects pictures and movies onto any flat surfaces, making it a cool way to share pictures and HD movies with your friends and family.
Well, here's a short video I made to show to you guys.
