    That "reality tunnel" effect is so cool, is there a proper name for it? I want to see more examples

    Absolutely thorough and effective comparison review! (I esp like how you added on-screen text comments to provide more info that you either gathered after recording or during editting) However, I, personally, would recommend that the M4 is the better of the two…which is based entirely on the info you presented herein…PLUS, if I may, suggest one simple modification/addition to what you considered to be a detractor of the M4,- its inability to project on the ceiling.

    1. DIY custom stabilizer-base for M4 ceiling/sky projection orientation

    1. obtain piece of material of approximate (but of at LEAST) the following dimensions 12" L 4" W x 1" D through which to drill one 1/2" diameter hole into which that pesky TV-tuner coaxial protrusion will insert when the M4 is set upon this base oriented to project onto ceiling…now you figure out exact WHERE to drill that hole but the larger your base material, the less accuracy will be required to figure such location (as there's only one hole to drill free of any other design-constraints/dependencies) however, the larger your base material, the less portable it will be

    2. make it purty

    +Photo Extremist
    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?

    +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.

    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 😀

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

    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.
