for December 2022

MOOZ Themes editors select recommendations independently, so your purchase through our link may earn us a commission.

art projectors are a good tool for artists looking to display their work on large surfaces. They project work onto surfaces up to 100 inches, and can often be used for interactive installations. This update includes 11 top art projectors, all of which are being reviewed head-to-head. We assessed their built quality, connectivity, ease of use, brightness, and features. We also took an extended look at price, since some models are much more affordable than others. Our thorough testing is designed to ensure you're making an informed purchase decision, and this side-by-side evaluation provides you with invaluable information.

This update features a range of unreleased art projectors. We've tested the native resolution, screen resolution, and maximum brightness of each model, and evaluated each one on its image quality and projected image size. We've also tested how well each projector automatically adjusts its output depending on the ambient light. With so much work, research, and analysis going into the rankings, we trust these recommendations to be accurate and informative.

Artograph EZ Tracer Opaque Art Projector for Wall or Canvas Image Reproduction- Bulb Not Included

Artograph EZ Tracer Opaque Art Projector for or Wall Canvas Image Reproduction- Bulb Not Included

by Artograph

Easy to use, lightweight and portable, silent operation, Dark Room Needed for Clarity

If you have artwork or a poster that you want to display, but it's too large for a normal picture. Then you need the Artograph EZ Tracer Opaque Art Projector. This projector can enlarge an image up to 10 times its original size, so you can display your artwork or poster on the wall or on canvas. It comes with a 163 mm optical glass lens, so the image it projects is crystal-clear. The projector can enlarge an image from 2 times up to 10 times, so you can display your artwork or poster on the wall or on canvas. The biggest problem with the Artograph EZ Tracer Opaque Art Projector is that it uses LED bulbs, which costs more than incandescent bulbs, so you'll have to replace them more often. The Artograph EZ Tracer Opaque Art Projector does come with a 23 watt CFL bulb, which is sufficient, but you may have to replace it more often. The projector comes with a 6 foot long power cord, so you can place it anywhere you'd like. The projector comes with a 1-year limited warranty.

Kopykake 300XK Opaque Art Projector with Table Clamp

Kopykake 300XK Opaque Art with Projector Table Clamp

by Kopykake

Originally designed for cake decoration, Kopykake has incorporated their product line into the arts and crafts industry

The Kopykake 300XK Opaque Art Projector is our first choice for home artists, thanks to its combination of price, image quality, and versatility. While other projectors we tested had lower brightness, the Kopykake 300XK offered strong color quality and excellent image contrast, making it much easier to see details and precise color. The projector's construction is sturdy, and the video link cable is long enough that you can position the projector on a table or the floor and still project the image. The projector also comes with a handy clamp to hold your work, and it's compatible with Apple and Android phones and tablets, so you can use your own tablet as a remote. The projector uses an ECA color correction lamp, which provides a bright, clear image even outdoors. The 300XK comes in two versions, one with a 250-watt color correction lamp and one with a 600-watt lamp, and the 600-watt version provided brighter images but less contrast. The 250-watt version was enough for most home projects, though.

MOOKA WiFi Projector

by MOOKA

Versatile Multimedia Mini Projector - MOOKA portable projector is compatible with TV Stick/PS4/PS5/HDMI/AV (DVD) via AV, HDMI, USB ports. iOS and Android phones compatible. WiFi/USB Cable/Wireless screen projection. Perfect for home entertainment, video game, party, outdoor activities.

The Mooka RD823 is a 1080p 3D projector with a 200-inch image and a bright, clear image. It's one of the only projectors we tested that can display a true 200-inch image on a 100-inch screen, which is required for true home theater. The projector has built-in WiFi and Bluetooth, so it connects easily to smart phones, tablets, and other devices, and it also supports a 10-foot long HDMI cord, which makes it easy to project from a game console, Blu-ray player, or PC. The Mooka's 8000-lumen brightness is bright enough to see even in a bright room, and it produces an image with vibrant, clear colors. The Mooka's 2.4-GHz wireless connection is faster than the 5-GHz connection of most other projectors, and it supports streaming from Netflix, YouTube, and other streaming services. The projector also has USB and HDMI inputs, so you can project from other devices. The Mooka's light output isn't as strong as that of some other projectors, so it isn't as great for watching movies in a bright room.

1080P HD Projector, WiFi Projector Bluetooth Projector, FANGOR 230

FANGOR 1080P HD Projector

by FANGOR

NATIVE 1080P FULL HD RESOLUTIONS With native resolution of 1920*1080 and contrast ratio of 10000:1, the Fangor-506 1080p Projector provides sharp and detailed HD images. Combining an innovative high-refraction 6 layers glassed lens, ensuring the best video experience.

The Fanmor 1080P HD projector is an outstanding value. It's inexpensive, easy to set up, and delivers a well above average picture. The projector is highly portable, weighing just 4 pounds, and is easy to set up and use. The 1080P image resolution is sharp and the bright, 800 lumens, 3000:1 native contrast ratio, and 200 ANSI lumens brightness produce a bright, vivid image. The projector is better suited to use outdoors than indoors, but it's bright enough for a backyard movie night, and the extra light makes viewing in daylight possible (the projector has a 180-degree projection angle and is 3M scratch resistant). Our only complaint was that its audio wasn't as impressive -- it lacked bass, and sounded a little tinny. (We also wish the fan was quieter.)

AuKing Mini Projector 2021 Upgraded Portable Video-Projector,55000 Hours Multimedia Home Theater Movie Projector,Compatible with Full HD 1080P HDMI,VGA,USB,AV,Laptop,Smartphone

AuKing Mini Projector Upgraded 2021 Portable Video-Projector

by AuKing

Low Noise & Long Lamp LifeThe projector is lower in noise and more durable than previous models thanks to advanced fan cooling technology. Powerful cooling system cools the heat of lamp efficiently, extending the bulb life to 55,000 hours, which means you can use it more than 15 years.

This mini projector is a significant improvement over previous models, and it's a big step up from an entry-level projector. It has a larger and brighter display, better sound quality, and it supports a wider range of video sources, including HD, 4K, and 3D. It also supports a wider range of aspect ratios, including letterbox for videos with a widescreen aspect ratio. The sound quality is on a par with other mini projectors, and it supports two-way audio via Chromecast and mobile devices. The projector's ease of use is much improved over previous models, and it supports a wider range of devices, including laptops, smartphones, USB drives, and X-Box ONE. However, the projector is large and bulky, and it's better suited to large rooms than a small bedroom or dorm room. The projector's Android-based OS is easy to navigate, but it lacks many of the features available on competing projector models. It's better suited to watching movies than gaming.

The Artograph Super Prism Opaque Art Projector with 2 Lenses for Image Reduction and Enlargement is in many ways a brute of a projector. The frame is heavy, at 18 pounds, and is made of steel, so it's a bit on the bulky side. It's also fairly heavy, at 7.5 pounds, and this makes it a little challenging to lug around, though there's usually someone nearby to help you carry it. The projector's 24x magnification is great, and it's powerful enough to significantly enlarge photos. The included 3-element, 240mm, color correcting lens aids image sharpness, and the standard len Prism lens helps to enhance contrast and image brightness, but the image itself tends to get a bit grainy. The Super Prism Opaque Art Projector with 2 Lenses for Image Reduction and Enlargement is also a bit fussy, and it requires switching back and forth between the 3-element and standard len Prism lenses, which can be difficult, especially if you're using it for PowerPoint presentations. Despite these drawbacks, the Super Prism Opaque Art Projector with 2 Lenses for Image Reduction and Enlargement is an affordable, excellent choice for classrooms, home use, and other environments that need a large, high-quality image.

Artograph Prism Opaque Art Projector for Wall or Canvas (Not Digital)

Artograph Prism Opaque Art Projector Wall for or Canvas (Not Digital)

by Artograph Original Prism

Illumination: 500-Watts photo quality lighting, (2-250 Watt photo lamps) with Dual-Cooling System and Safety Overload Circuit. A dark room is required for viewing.

The Artograph Prism Projector is a worthy upgrade from the Artograph Prism Digital. The optics are superb, and this projector has a bit more brightness than its predecessor. However, the Prism Digital is smaller and lighter. The Prism Opaque is bigger and heavier, and it costs more, too. But it's worth it for the superior image quality. The Opaque's lens is 10% larger than the Prism Digital's, and the glass covering is 20% larger, too. The Opaque is also brighter and sharper than the Prism Digital. The Opaque is significantly sharper and clearer than the Prism Digital, and colors are richer and more accurate. The Prism Opaque also includes two interchangeable lenses: a 20x lens and a reduced 80% lens. The reduced 80% lens is terrific for enlarging artwork, and it's great value for the price. The Opaque's 20x lens is sharper and clearer than the 20x lens on the Prism Digital, but it's a bit too small for artwork. The Opaque's 80% lens is sharp enough for artwork, but it's too small for photography. The Prism Opaque's 15-hour battery life is also impressive, and it's plenty bright enough for most jobs. The Prism Opaque's removable cover is also a nice feature, and it offers extra protection for artwork. The Prism Opaque also has a few nice extra features, including adjustable brightness and a dimmer switch. The Prism Opaque is $100 more than the Prism Digital, but it's a big upgrade in value, too.
