With so many generic rebranded projectors on the market it is refreshing to review a model from a well known household name. Kodak were historically best known for their camera film but have since branched out into other areas now everything has gone digital!
Here we take a look at the Kodak Luma 75, the entry level device in their portable projector range. This model is able to output HD 16:9 cinema ready images and still manages to fit in the palm of your hand. That’s pretty impressive.
The Kodak Luma 75 is a super portable projector ideal for taking away with you and ad hoc spontaneous big screen watching. At just 3.1 x 3.1 x .79 inches and weighing only 150g this really is a pocket projector.
With a built in HDMI port you’ll just need to hook up your Chromecast, Firestick or other video source and away you go. It also accepts microSD cards so you can play compatible media without needing another source, perfect for on the move video playback.
Charging is done through a micro USB port, and there is also a 3.5mm headphone jack if you wish to hook up external speakers that way. There is a built in speaker which will be useful when on the move, but don’t expect a cinema experience! Battery time is quoted as up to 2 hours which is enough for a movie. You can always plug into the mains or bring an external battery pack for longer viewing on the go.
The first thing to quickly point out is that whilst this projector can display HD video sources, the image resolution is itself 640 x 360. When buying a projector, it is always important to check the specifications carefully as many models shout HD but when you look at the detail the actual projected image may not be “full” 1080p HD resolution. Remember that this is an entry level model and if you up your budget there are Kodak portables with higher resolutions to choose from.
Another potential downside of a portable like this is the achievable brightness level. It will look great in the dark, but don’t expect this to look all that clear in the day time or even dim rooms. As you up your budget you can get brighter models with high resolutions, you get what you pay for.
For the price and portability the Luma does deliver good results, just don’t expect it to match up to bigger more expensive models. There is some fan noise from the Luma 75 but it is fairly quiet compared to bigger models out there, turn up the sound and you won’t be bothered by it!
Should I buy the Kodak Luma 75?We can recommend the Kodak Luma 75 to anyone looking for an entry level portable projector that can be carried around and stored easily. The images look great for such a small device and it is easy to setup and use.
