Digital Camera World Verdict

The Kodak Flik HD10 Smart Projector is a boxy speaker-like device roughly the size of a car battery that will provide a big screen effect for our homes without an accompanying large price tag. The Full HD resolution is sufficiently clear for projecting onto walls if we don’t own a dedicated screen, and the dual five-watt speakers pump out sufficient noise to mostly disguise the loud fan noise the unit emits while in operation. Achieving a larger or smaller projection size is simply a case of moving the device closer to or further away from whatever surface our image is being projected onto. Ultimately this is best suited to families with subscriptions to a growing range of streaming services who want to enjoy them on a grander scale than tablets, laptops or the TV will allow. And, we’d wager, it’s also ideal for kids’ parties.


  • +

    Great fun once up and running

  • +

    A portable projector at a budget price

  • +

    Full HD resolution variable projection size between 40 and 150 inches

  • +

    Compact, albeit boxy, build


  • -

    On-board fan is noisy and the front of the unit gets quite warm in operation

  • -

    Needs a low light/ no light setting for effective viewing

  • -

    The 2x AAA batteries required for the remote handset need to be purchased separately

  • -

    An actual projection screen, if required, is an additional spend

  • -

    A carry handle fixed to the unit would have been a useful addition

The way we now consume the latest blockbusters in our digital age has prompted many Hollywood directors to moan that their widescreen epics, often shot specifically for tower block-sized formats like IMAX, weren’t intended for merely watching on tablets or mobile phones. 

So here’s a device that allows us to free such imagery from our small screens and enjoy it on a larger scale – and even perhaps give our own smartphone video clips a more cinematic destination. The budget-priced, family-targeted Kodak Flik HD10 Smart Projector can generate images from a film poster sized 40 inches, up to a whopping home cinema style 150 inches. Providing we’ve got a vacant wall, or portable projection screen large enough of course.
