3M shows off camcorder with integrated projector
3M has just unveiled a new pocket camcorder that has a built-in pico projector, the Shoot 'n' Share CP40. It can throw up images and videos up to 65 inches in size at VGA resolution, though it has the ability to record 720p videos or five-megapixel photos. While there is just 14MB of built-in memory, a microSDHC memory card slot lets users add up to 32GB of storage, good for about 20 hours of video.
The projector has 12 lumens of brightness when working off the CP40's built-in rechargeable lithium polymer battery or 14 lumens when plugged in. Thanks to an HMDI output, the camera can also play back content on connected external displays, though not at 720p resolution.
When the CP40 will launch or what it will cost have not been revealed.
