Dear all,

Im filming a music video where images will be projected onto the band members.
We're thinking of using this projector - http://www.epson.co..../Epson-EB-1915.
Unfortunately I wont have time to test the RED or EPIC that Im thinking of renting, with the projector.
Does anyone have any experience whether the camera will have any issues (i.e. similar to strobing on a computer screen) with the projected imagery?

thanks for your help

Rob

All Epson projectors are three chip LCD based....there should be no strobing as could happen with one chip / colorwheel DLP based projectors. Color temperature will be "Daylight" balanced. LCD projectors have internal polarizer filters in the light path so like filters on the camera may create static or moving "patterns" in the projected image...

Try different shutter angles on the camera, especially 360 degrees, to see what works best.
