    I'm in need of a portable projector that can shoot at night on urban and environments in London.

    It needs to project a white tiger walking on to various wall and be pickupable by a canon C300.

    The problems I'm predicting are:

    1. Lack of power/brightness as powered by battery
    2. Too lower contrast ratio to ensure the blacks of the background (around the white walking tiger) aren't shown.
    3. Phasing and shutter speed issues of shooting with a digital cmos sensor camera.

    Could anyone enlighten me as to what projector would be best? We've been looking at Optoma PK301 among a few others.

    Thank you!

    Jack

    I would simply get a 12V battery, back pack and inverter. 300W should do for a smaller projector. This will give you up to half an hour of life from a good size sealed lead acid battery.

    An LCD projector will prevent shutter issues. This is really only an issue with single chip DLP.

    What about LED projectors? Are there problems with those?

    And I've looked for a 12V battery pack but can't seem to find anything that seems suitable.

    Thanks,
