    ipad+pico Projector combo? Yay? Nay?

    I saw this video(still new, won't let me post vid) where a guy hooked up his iPad and projector and thought the idea was pretty cool. Basically just turn my iPad into a controller and play on a big screen. I was looking at the AAXA P3 because the price and specs seem like best balance (720p +$250). I wanted to know if anyone bought one before I order one and if they liked the brightness/resolution well enough

    I've never heard of an iPad hooking up to a projector. To get the most accurate results to find to get a projector for it, try asking the creator of the video what kind of projector it is.

    Many folks use projectors with iPads, a search of these forums will find many discussions about it.

    As to the op, I think it depends what you are looking for and in what kind of setting(s). Pico projectors by their nature are very small so have very small light elements (LED's generally, from memory) but I have seen good and bad reviews of them, any chance you could get to a store that sells them to try one out?

    Oh the vid was actually of the AAXA P3. It looked like marketing but he was doing a review video of it, playing Angry Birds off of a widescreen projection on the wall. The resolution seemed pretty nice in dark lighting, not as bright as the iPad (but my iPad gets too bright to read in the dark sometimes).

    I have a Canon
    portable projector
    Rebel t1i and it goes where I go. I always take new photos, so it's nice to share them with people. I have a high capacity sd card so I can take and keep a lot of
    mini projectors

    I really like that Idea. My dad use to have the old Kodiak Carousel. The one where you had to change all your pics into slides. I think this would be a cool thing to show him but with this new tech!
