I'm looking into specifications and prices for a PJ for my camera club. It has to present an accurate still picture - good grey-scale, accurate colour and saturation and not too much chicken wire! Fan noise is not a big issue, though we don't want too much noise when viewing AVs. XGA is a minimum. Card and USB slots useful, but might over-limit the choice. I think the Canon XEED fits the bill in most aspects, except card inputs and price! We need to be well below 2K. We will be pitching it against 35mm transparencies in a Kodak Carousel, and don't want to come off a poor second! Before buying this machine we might choose to cut our teeth on a very cheap secondhand machine. Any ideas for a good choice for this application and environment? TIA.
