New Nikon iPhone/iPad apps

The rumor mill is grinding to a halt, which probably means that Nikon is done for this year. We still have to watch the first week of December, but as of today I am not aware of any scheduled press events. To keep you entertained, I have several guest posts and giveaways scheduled for the next few weeks.

Today Nikon released a new iPhone/iPad app called iP-PJ Transfer that will allow to project content from your iOS device to the Coolpix 1200pj camera (see full press release at the bottom of this post):

Using the iP-PJ Transfer app on an iPhone 4 or any other compatible Apple product will enable the projection of various content stored on the aforementioned via the COOLPIX S1200pj. Until now, content that could be projected using an iPhone 4, etc. and the COOLPIX S1200pj was limited to slideshows and the streaming of YouTube™ content but the iP-PJ enables projection of a variety of content such as the following:

1) Photos
2) Projection of websites being browsed within the iP-PJ Transfer. Search engines can be used for bookmarking websites.
3) Document files: Projection is enabled for document files such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint as well as Adobe PDF.

While searching itunes, I came acros few other Nikon apps I did not see before:

Nikon Manual Viewer (iPod and iPhone compatible): Nikon Manual Viewer is a viewer app for iPhones and iPads that allows users to download and view user’s manuals and reference manuals for Nikon digital cameras. Manuals that have been downloaded can be viewed off-line, allowing users to refer to them at any time and any place.

Nikon 1 Official Catalogue (iPad only): This “Nikon 1 Official Catalog” application not only helps you learn more about the new features of these products such as Motion Snapshot and Smart Photo Selector, but also allows you to enjoy a variety of photos and movies that have been shot using the Nikon 1 digital camera system.

Nikon also has several older apps:

All apps created by Nikon Corp are free.

Press release: Nikon Launches iP-PJ Transfer App for iPad, iPhone & iPod touch

Supports The New COOLPIX 1200pj with Built-In Projector Allowing Users to Project Content from iOS Devices

Melville, N.Y., November 16, 2011 – Nikon Inc. has announced the release of the iP-PJ Transfer App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch1, now available on the App Store. The app enables users to project content stored on an iPhone or iPod touch using the new COOLPIX S1200pj with built-in projector.

The iP-PJ Transfer App lets users easily project still images in thumbnail and full-frame displays, business documents created with common presentation tools and websites2 from their iPhone or iPod touch3. Whether sharing with friends and family or business colleagues, the iP-PJ Transfer App gives users quicker access to more content and lets them share it in a unique way with the COOLPIX 1200pj.

“With the introduction of the COOLPIX S1200pj, Nikon has delivered an easier way for consumers to share their photos and movies,” said Sharon Henley, Nikon’s senior manager of product lifecycle control. “Now, with the addition of the iP-PJ Transfer App, the COOLPIX S1200pj can project content straight from a user's iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.”

The COOLPIX S1200pj, Nikon’s third projector-equipped model, offers a 40% increase in projection brightness over its immediate predecessor and projects vivid images up to 60 inches.

The iP-PJ Transfer App is available for free from the App Store on iPad, iPhone or iPod touch or at

  • D700guy

    So, now we get to wade through another 12 months of no new FX bodies.

    • Thom wHO?

      But we had a great year! Nikon 1 is with us!


      Nikon say something about D800 like Canon with its 1Dx. This is ridiculous!

      • Iris Chrome

        Which Canon is so sure about but not yet ready to release…

        • AnoNemo

          Obviously Iris you seem to think like Nikon. There is no need for financial planning. I’m sure I am not the only one who wants to know what is coming, approx. how much it will cost, and when it will be available. In that way, people can plan ahead and select the best option they can afford. But I think this concept does not resonate with Nikon.

          That is why I have to congratulate for Canon because they at least provided details about their upcoming camera and now many can plan ahead.

          • Bobbybrownblack

            Canon only did so coz they can’t sell their current model at all. They got nothing to loose (I’m talking based on facts because I have market data for electr. manufacturers’ sales).
            If they announce a product too early/with later sales start date, sales of the current product comes to a stop even before it’s discontinued. Obviously everyone will be gearing up to buy the new camera. Why would a manufacturer be so stupid to lose sales by making an announcement too soon?
            Oh, I know, because the company is (luckily) not run by the gurus here on NR, otherwise they’d be out of business long ago thanks to dumbasses like you.

            • AnoNemo


              Who are you that without knowing me you call me “dumbass”? Did I call you dumbass? Your statement describes you fairly perfectly.

              But let me ignore your obvious trolling rudeness and throw you a bone to think about something.

              Since Audi introduced the new A4 last month which will be available sometime next year, using your own argument the Audi (aka Volkswagen) group will go bankrupt and won’t be able to sell any A4s because a new model is coming right?

              I have doubts about your data and more doubts about your capabilities to understand and interpret them. A little hint for you: We are talking about really expensive equipments not your CoolPix or #2 (aka system 1). One more hint: in that category people normally budget for next year. And an extra hint: Nikon is virtually out of stock of D3s, D3x, and D700. But I guess Nikon can make profit without actually selling the out of stock cameras. 😉

              Which company is your data provider?

  • SoftonDemand

    Oh goodie!

  • T.I.M

    No leak about the 18th ?
    Can I kill myself ?

    • AM

      I won’t stop you.

    • Ren Kockwell

      Who’ll find the body?

      • T.I.M

        @Ren Kockwell
        the D800 ?

  • you call this rumors what rumors

    • Rumor1

      He started a rumor — that there will be no new bodies this year.

      That’s a rumor, not a fact.

      From someone who never has rumors (other sites that parrot material) this wouldn’t be a rumor. But when this site says it — the suspense is great, achieving the purpose of the site.

      • Nathaniel. P

        So you think anything that is not a fact is a rumor?

  • don’t bother downloading the Nikon Manual – it is exiting to main menu on iPad every time i try to scroll the first page of 2 manuals i downloaded…
    take care

    • Michael Houghton

      Indeed; horribly unstable and it’s ultimately just a bad PDF viewer with a download facility. Better to get the manuals from Nikon then store them in GoodReader or iBooks.

      • NRC

        Yup, I’ve got the PDF manuals from Nikon for my cameras and flash units in iBooks. Best way to do it.

        • Richard

          I certainly agree. Although I like the idea that Nikon is trying to do something, this app needs a lot more effort before it will be the equal of simply loading the PDFs in iBooks.

          The search function does not display much useful information in the summary which means you click on things a lot to see what it is.

          Worse yet, the number of manuals available is quite limited. There is not one provided for the F6, F100, SB-800 & etc so I just load them in iBooks.

          Keep trying, Nikon, we’ll be watching.

    • Shasta_D

      That sure is indeed a junk app. On my iPhone it also crashes after I go to the 2nd page for the D700 manual. Also, the app seems to be built with Engrish. While installing the D700 manual it says “Analysting Text”

      • Ren Kockwell

        From a company that had the foresight to turn down Photoshop, it’s no wonder.

      • Yep, Manual app crashes immediately on the 4S as well. Deleted!

  • julian

    just publish some completely baseless rumors about 3 new fx bodies with groundbreaking technology blah blah blah some time in december and all will be forgiven

    • Elton

      Just for you…

      D400: D7000 sensor in a D300+ body. NPS automatically qualifying. Pro level weather sealing. $1800. Available June 2012

      D800: As speculated here. Available March 2012. $3200

      D4: 21 MP, 12 fps. Killer video. Available Aug 2012. $4500

      • EvanK

        My opinion:

        D400: New Sony 24MP DX sensor, dual SD card slots, 1080P HD video at 30FPS, new EXPEED processor, 3″ or larger high-res LCD, may see an AF upgrade, may see faster continuous shooting, may see USB 3.0. Available Q2-Q3 2012

        D800: 36MP FX sensor, dual card slots, 1080P HD video at 30FPS, new EXPEED processor, 3″ or larger high-res LCD, AF upgrade (51 points, but faster overall), probably same frame rate but possible upgrade by 1 or 2 FPS, USB 3.0. Available Q1-Q2 2012

        D4: 24 or more MP FX sensor, dual CF card slots, 1080P HD video at 30FPS, new EXPEED processor, 3″ or larger high-res LCD, faster AF, >10 FPS, GPS, USB 3.0. Available Q2-Q3 2012, Nikon would be a fool not to release this before the summer Olympics.

        • AS


          D400 a 16Mpix pro level body with the new Aptina sensor (almost two stops better than D700 at high ISO).

          D800 a 36 Mpix monster with a ridiculous price compared to D700(but very good image quality).

          D4 a 16-18 Mpix High ISO monster, wich will clean the floor with the over priced 1DX.

          And the released date (if nothing goes wrong) in february-april we may see the anouncement of D800.

  • PeterO

    @NR Admin
    I remember some time ago you were considering changing the name of the forum. This would be the perfect time. NRN = Nikon Rumors and News. This way, when there are no Rumors, you can post news like this super exciting app and no one can complain.

    A personal observation: That promo about the designer of the P300 was very telling. What struck me repeatedly was how austere and lifeless the Nikon workplace was. There was absolutely nothing on the dull grey walls. The little scene in the pub was like an explosion of colour in comparison. I am completely awestruck that a camera company that deals in COLOURS would ask their workers to be creative in such a dull space. This is not a criticism, only an observation. Obviously I don’t understand the psychology used in designing an industrial workplace.

    • The name “Nikon Rumors and News” is just too long, otherwise I will switch.

      • You can always specify the site content in the tagline!

        “Nikon Rumours – where there’s smoke there’s fire”
        “Nikon Rumours – Helping Nikon keep it’s customers informed and hopeful”

      • Ren Kockwell

        How about Nikon Newmors?

      • Anonymus Maximus

        How about “Nikon R u N”

        Run! Nikon Run!

      • PeterO

        How about to pass the time, we start suggesting names and the winner gets a D800 for Christmas 🙂

      • Richard

        How about the Nikon Network? Nikon news and rumors from around the world.

  • The invisible man

    I can’t decide, Af-s 300mm f/2.8 VRII or the 200mm f/2.0 VRII ?
    (the D800 will probably have a crop mode with about 20MP)

    • PeterO

      Get both.

  • I shoot Nikon

    Bye-bye Nikon Rumors and see you next year. In the new year I wish for your crystal ball to stay as clear as ever, just like all of my Nikon glass (except for the 50 1.4g, that sucker is going back to the store).

  • broxibear

    You never know, the first week of December might bring something, if it doesn’t the next credible date is CES Jan 10th-13th 2012.
    I still believe a pre release type of announcement, like Canon’s 1DX, would give Nikon a marketing boost, but I don’t see them doing it.

    • Yes – this time PMA will be part of CES. PMA is the biggest photo shown in the US.

      • broxibear

        In one way you can understand it, 2011 is a year Nikon will want to forget.
        The tsunami and flooding caused chaos as far as their new models are concerned, their timelines have gone out the window and their rivals have had positive press.
        Maybe they’ve decided it’s better to concentrate on the mirrorless for the rest of the year, and in January start fresh with CES being the big dslr announcements?

        • D700guy

          Or not….

  • jimmyjonjamjam

    *Insert comment that no d800 i’m going to canon here*


    • T.I.M

      I’ll switch to Canon if they have a D800 !

  • cdrross


  • Ren Kockwell

    Yes! Apps about manuals! WOOOOOOOOOO!

  • Who is going to break the news to Nikon that Android exists too, and it’s very very popular?
    No biggie though, I have had my D7000 pdf manual in my phone for months now, no need of a Nikon technological “breakthrough” for that.

    • AnoNemo


      • chimphappyhour


        Maybe they’re waiting for their software people to finish CNX3 before they distract them with another piece of software. Which means we’ll get Android support in…. never.

        • Bjrichus


          Not that shouting at them has ever worked before…. 😉

  • derWalter

    i hope nikon gets on its feet next year.

    they are missing millions of $ in the video market to the canon 5&7D
    also the Canon C300 was a very offensive move of canon.

    i hope nikon is using the time to reworks its actual designs,
    because they will be a year too old
    to compete, when they finally come out.

    hoping for a d800 with max. 24mp and 51k native iso (not that we need it but canon already
    announced a camera with such a high iso count, so in terms of marketing…)
    and an ass full of video options, which blasts away the 5d in all fields of performance.

    good luck nikon for the next year,
    good luck…

    • Funduro

      DSLR’s are used by photographers take digital images. Videographers that use DSLR’s are denying camera’s from the hands of photographers. I don’t buy camcorders to shoot photo’s, it’s only right that DSLR be only used for image making.

    • Richard

      I have been surprised to learn that several Nikon photographers have been using Panasonic GH2s to handle their video work. I am sure they would like some kit that could perform both tasks.

  • The rumor mill has ground to a halt…

    Amazing how the D800 rises and falls. Looks like I can hold on to my piggy bank a bit longer.

  • JonMcG

    Yep, I suppose it’s time to mail it in, keep that $$ meant for a new body, put that time and energy into becoming a better photog with the tools I have an move on…

  • Eric Calabros

    Two huge mother nature slap, and 40mm macro and one toy named 1
    what a year was this damn 2011

  • Willy

    Having fun while waiting!
    Last week my d700 got company. I bought a D5100 with 18-105 and the stereomic ME-1, just to have another toy instead of being frustrated by waiting. The idea was to play and learn some basic about video, and prepare for the pro gear.
    I am really surprised to see the fantastic pics a get from this little piece of ……, and the videos look professional. The world have surely moved fast while i have been sleeping with my d700.
    Now i am much more relaxed, having fun and being creative :-). No hurry for d800!
    Just use your time, Nikon, and thanks for the d5100. Time will come for the d800!

    • T.I.M

      I have a D5100, great camera but for some reason TERRIBLE focusing with my 14-24mm f/2.8 (3 new samples tested), no problems with my other lenses.

      • broxibear

        “No leak about the 18th ?
        Can I kill myself ?”
        Since you’re going to kill yourself in a few hours T.I.M I’ll take the 14-24mm off your lifeless hands lol…send your details to Peter/admin and I’ll arrange for a courier to pick it up, you can keep the D5100.
        Forget the suicide note, just write “send this lens to Peter/admin @ nikonrumors ?
        Don’t think I’ll run into any focusing issues on my D3, thanks.

        • T.I.M

          and I thought we were friends…..

          • broxibear

            we are lol…but business is business. I don’t actually need a 14-24mm but I could sell it and buy a 24mm f1.4 AFS ?
            Make sure you write that note before you…infact how are you going to kill yourself ?

            • T.I.M

              I don’t really have to kill myself, I just tell my wife how much the AF-s 200mm f/2 will cost me and she will kill me instanty

  • Ren Kockwell

    2011, the year Nikon ignored the grown ups and ate at the kids’ table.

  • CamaMan

    That projecting app… You connect your iOS device to Coolpix via some usb cable right?

  • Elmo

    thats why i dont like this site anymore….

    • AM

      Don’t like it, don’t come on. And don’t worry, we won’t miss you.

    • Ren Kockwell

      You’re so much more upbeat on Sesame Street. Cheer up!

  • simpleguy

    Nikon Done for this year – literally saying !! 🙁

    no wonder they finish this year with an new iPhone/iPad app

    following their masters apple it seems , masters of design and hype and nothing but toys

  • No excuse on Nikon for keeping dead silence. Bye-bye, D800. Basta!

  • The invisible man

    One month away from Xmas and the D700 is OUT OF STOCK everywhere !
    Adorama, B&H, RitsCamera, Cameta camera, Samy’s camera, etc….

    What does that mean ?
    1: Nikon is stupid and want to miss Xmas sales.
    2: There is no more D700 in production in Japan factories.
    3: The D800 is ready for sales but in limited quantities, that will make everyone mad.

    Make your choice !

    • Hey T.I.M going to buy a FF body between 2k ~ 3k for the xmas? Used D700/D3 or 2.3k 5D MK II.

      No more options.

      • AnoNemo

        You’re right! Since no FX is available and Nikon is quiet we can only conclude that Nikon abandoned the FX and now it only focuses on delivering #2 (Nikon 1). Otherwise those a-holes at Nikon would have come out and said something. We can only guess again. But if we would ask that genius from Nikon UK who said that people did not tell us that they want mirrorless, he would tell you that nobody told us that FX is out of stock in 95% of the decent stores.

        My guess is that Nikon hired some smart people from book cooking team of Olympus… 😉

    • Thom wHO?

      For your health, I hope it means option 3 xD

      Less than 24 hours… lol

      I’ll switch to 5DII…. :'(

  • RevKev123

    I don’t believe that we won’t see anything.

    Sony has restarted manufacturing so I believe Nikon has.

    December are patience will be rewarded.

  • T.I.M

    If we don’t get the D800 tomorrow (18th) we won’t get it this year.

  • TK421

    [NR] admin-
    We’re getting desperate here. If the rumor mill really has ground to a halt, please just start making sh*t up. We’ll never know the difference. Thank you.

  • Mimmo

    Now I want to cry…… no D800 for this year…………. oh nooo………..

  • Pope Pope

    does this work with the d800 ?

  • Cndlpwr

    Well that’s it folks. I expect no more earth shaking news from Nikon this year. The wave of announcements has come and gone.

    At least they got their feet wet in the mirrorless market.


    I expect CES to be all about the 1 and we won’t see the D800 announcement until Feb.

  • Wow!!!

    Nikon 1 was ridiculous.

    Nikon iphone apps is even better!!!

    Nikon manuals: click, we do the rest … (Nikon manual is short enough to be shown on iphone screen, Nikon images too ?)

    Nikon, the Kodak of the years 2012/2013 ???

  • MacManX

    The Nikon Manuals app is only available in the US 🙁
