International gleamio competition. Enter to Win Nebula Capsule Portable Projector Gleam Sweepstakes August 2018.
Anker’s Nebula Capsule is a tiny, ultra-portable, battery-powered projector. Similar in size to a can of Coke, this projector can go anywhere, and built-in Android 7.1 ensures it can keep up with any of your media needs. Let’s take a deeper look.
Measuring 4.7 x 2.6 inches, and weighing under 15 oz, the capsule is an ultra-portable, take anywhere projector. Smaller than an Amazon Echo, this little projector feels very sturdy. It has a metal tripod mount on the bottom and a series of control buttons on the top.
A 5W, 360-degree speaker array handles audio, and a small wheel on the left side of the unit is for focusing. The rear of the projector houses the infrared port, and a Micro-USB and full-size HDMI port.
This projector uses an FWVGA DLP sensor, with a native resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. While this isn’t even 1080p, let alone 4K, it’s a common resolution for portable projectors, and Nebula has managed to make the image look clear and sharp. This bulb will last 30,000 hours, which is an outstanding life. You’re unlikely to ever use it enough to kill the sensor.
The capsule has a brightness rating of 100 ANSI Lumens. This may not sound like a lot when compared to the average of 1500 – 2500 for large home projectors, but this is excellent for a mini projector. ANSI Lumens are a standard for measuring light output. If a projector measures brightness in Lumens, and not ANSI Lumens, it’s always going to be much dimmer than you’d expect.
The throw ratio of around 1:1.2 is very good, but like any projector which isn’t classified as “short throw”, it means you’ll need a large amount of room if you want to project a huge image.
