The Kodak Luma 350 is a super portable HD projector that’s great for casual movie-watching at home or on the go. It doesn’t get very bright, and its video quality is pretty average, but its 2-hour battery life is OK. Unfortunately, it’s prone to rainbow artifacts.

Overview

The Kodak Luma 350 is a super portable entry-level smart projector first announced in early 2019. It is an entry-level pick that ships with Android 6 OS built-in for super easy navigation and a remote for convenient control. Its small size makes it one of the best projectors for on-the-go, and its ability to project up to 150 inches of image is pretty impressive.

The Luma 350 can be connected to a laptop or gaming console through its USB or HDMI ports, but if you’re not sure how to do that, here’s our info piece on how to connect a laptop & projector. The projector also boasts Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity. We have a guide on how to make a projector wireless.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Kodak Luma 350 is a compact projector that takes your movies anywhere. The HD projector’s 200-lumen brightness rating isn’t exceptional, but it’s good enough for dark room viewing. It presents images up to 150 inches in size, but you get the clearest picture quality at about 70-80 inches. Connectivity options include both WiFi and Bluetooth connections. The projector has a 3500:1 contrast ratio for reasonably deep blacks and a 2-hour battery that is satisfying, given its size. Unfortunately, the Luma 350’s 2-hour battery life doesn’t match the Anker Capsule Laser 3, which lasts up to 2.5 hours.

The Luma 350 only features vertical keystone correction, and its 200 ANSI-lumen brightness rating doesn’t compare well to the brightest projectors around. Still, its Android OS system makes it super easy to download and stream directly from your favorite apps. However, it is prone to rainbow artifacts.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Exceptional portability
    • The Kodak Luma 350 is a palm-size projector that is easy to pack and move around with.

Reason to Avoid

  • Average brightness
    • The Kodak LUMA 350 has an average brightness rating of 200-ANSI lumens, making it okay for casual movie viewing. This, however, makes it quite good for projecting photos.

  • Average image quality
    • The Luma 350 offers average image and video quality, with a 3500:1 contrast ratio for satisfyingly deep blacks.

    • However, the projector does have a noticeable color imbalance, with some white areas appearing with a greenish tinge.

  • Prone to rainbow artifacts
    • Being a DLP projector, the Luma 350 does project rainbows every now and then, which might be irritating to some.

The Kodak Luma 350 is capable of projecting a larger image compared to the Anker Nebula Capsule Laser 3 Laser; however, the Anker projector has a significantly longer lamp life, as well as a laser light source. The Anker projector also has a slightly longer battery life and a stereo sound output, but the Kodak Luma 350 is the more portable alternative because of its smaller size.
