A couple of months ago, I had also considered buying a portable projector. I eventually purchased a Light Blaster instead since I preferred working with flash as opposed to continuous lighting.

It has its advantages (ex. portability, lens selection, less competition with ambient light), but I’m still not sure if I made the right decision given how inconvenient it is to focus and project images onto people in a precise manner. It’s quite different from using regular projectors where what you see is what you get.

Evan we’ve missed you! So happy you’ve uploaded this!

ARENA Accessories says:

Killer tutorial man! I never even knew they made portable battery-operated projectors this bright… “ri-dic-a-lous” is absolutely right

liam something says:

that projector has more ports than the new macbook pro

pcfreak1992 says:

You’re the only person I have ever heard of that actually uses the projector’s media playback feature. Most people I know just use it like a monitor 😀

avishay conhye says:

but does it have a port port?

Cj Liangco says:

about time! 😀

Ruud the Diamond says:

can you use a smaller projector with more lumens and higher resolution for less money from, let’s say webshops from the far east?

Soap Creatives says:

My brain couldn’t handle this. I kept laughing out loud by how mind blowing this was. So many ideas!

faensostress says:

But does it have any ports?!?

Shell B says:

shaun0mac1 says:

nice video mate. jst got some questions and would really appreciate any help u can give. 1) wen ur starting the projector, are u able to set it so it boots from the hdmi output instead of having to select it every time? 2) can the battery b removed for it to still work wen u plug it into the wall? 3) how loud are the fans? are they quieter if u run it in ego mode? Thanks 😀

Carl Huffman says:

excellent comparison of the two units, very thorough.

Alastair Harmer says:

Conducting an extensive search of portable battery powered projectors and have now come across interesting models that cover the full gamut of throw distances. What do you think about using short throw projectors like the Asus P2B that gives a 120″ screen from only 3m away? The Asus P3B is ultra-short giving the same screen from only 2m. The shortest throw distances among battery powered projectors I’ve found belong to the LG PH450 & PF1000 which can give a 100″ screen just a few inches from the wall. But it seems to me it would be better to keep the projector at some distance from the subject/s for photography, though being able to project a large image without needing a lot of space is always attractive even for this work i guess. what do you think?

Martijn Room says:

Thank you for the tips! I love this video.
Has anyone tried to use a projector for UV or IR projects? I would love to hear more tips and tricks about this topic!

Anthony Vernolini says:

like Jake I just wanna get shapes and smog and all that kinda stuff. My projector is quite old but never been used so hoping you could help on that one. You know your stuff, to be honest my brain does not function with that kinda stuff but a wanna learn.

Suklaa Trubaduuri says:

Well made and informative video 🙂

Fx says:

Almost every other photo trick, technique or genre has multiple people making good videos about it but I have still not seen another video even close to this when it comes to this niche of photography.

Eric Balcon says:

I guess it opens a new horizon to your imagination ?

Anthony Brown says:

Great work 🙂

jeromesims says:

+Photo Extremist Thanks for the “Duh!” moment; I’m a photographer and film buff who on both fronts tends to avoid as much as possible getting into special effects so recently when I started looking into projectors to use for viewing films and maybe showing clients work the idea of using one for my photography was pushed far into the recesses of my small mind. So much so that I foolishly avoided watching this video until now, though I keep seeing it in my searches for projectors. Thankfully my closed-mindedness does tend to wear out and I’m over the moon that it did. So many fun experiments await! I know I’ll be returning to this video until all the info is burned into this small brain. Thanks for the inspiration.

Mark Candlin says:

Thanks for opening up a whole new aspect of photography I hadn’t even considered.
