Videoprojectors

are very useful here. We show short films, use PowerPoint slide shows for deputation, put questions for discussion on the wall, etc. etc.

I've always resisted buying one because 1) churches tend to have one now. 2) they're big and bulky, even the small ones 3) when the lamp goes it costs a fortune to replace 4) when you fly to the UK you either have this heavy thing in your hand luggage, along with your little laptop, camera, trombone, etc. etc., or you have kittens because it's been hurled into the hold...

Then the picoprojectors started to appear. These are small low-powered projectors which are much less expensive but need to be used in a darkened room because their led light source is less powerful.

Aha ! An inexpensive projector you could put in your pocket ! I watched with interest.

Now I'm wondering whether it's time to get one - I am thinking of the Samsung H03, which seems to get good write-ups and seems pretty well suited to the small group stuff we normally do. Anybody know anything ? Pro or con ?
