Nikon is no stranger to cramming a projector into a camera, as the company already has the projector-toting Coolpix S1100pj digital camera. Now Nikon seems to be thinking of bringing that technology into a DSLR camera. While it would be great if you could easily project and share the photos that you’ve taken directly using your DLSR camera, the interesting thing about the patent is that it mentions that the projection will happen through the electronic viewfinder.
The translation itself isn’t too clear, but if it really does project out through the viewfinder, isn’t that slightly dangerous, especially since that’s where you place your eye? Hopefully it’s just a misunderstanding or mistake in translation, but it will be interesting to see how such a DSLR would sell.
