Welcome to dickblick
Artograph's DesignMaster allows you to create bright sharp images, and achieve professional results. Use it for illustration, drawing, or fine art. Two stainless steel clips hold your copy securely within the 6" × 6" (38 cm × 38 cm) copy area.
The projector also includes one 250W bulb, a 200 mm ground optical glass lens for accurate and precise image size and proportion, a sturdy spring-loaded stand for easy height and angle adjustment and steady image projection, and a heavy-duty clamp for attaching the projector to a tabletop. UL listed.
Assembly required. 120V, 2.5 AC. 60 Hz. Weighs 19 lbs (9 kg).
The DesignMaster can only be used with the Artograph Mobile Projector Floor Stand.
250W Photo Bulb — One 250W photo bulb is included with the projector. The advantage of using an ordinary 250W bulb in a projector is its longer bulb life. However, the 250W photo bulb is recommended because it gives a much truer reproduction of color. Lasts approximately 25 hours.
Electrical Warning — All electrical products have U.S. standard plugs and voltage. Due to damage that can occur when using incompatible plugs, sockets, or converters, Blick does not ship electrical items or accessories outside of North America or to freight forwarders.

Mediocre quality and performance
from Los Angeles,CA
Comments about Artograph DesignMaster Projector:
I bought this to help create photorealistic illustration. This projector is my 2nd projector and a bit disappointed. It's OK for up to 20" x 30" but does not get crisp images if you work 30" x 40" or more. Also the room does have to be dark to use it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Lights are going out all over
from San Franciso, CA
I use this projector as the basis for elaborate drawings based on photos. Focus is good, and it takes fairly large originals (7 inches or so high). Like other reviewers, I find the very expsnsive bulbs burn out very quickly; much faster than the normal bulbs I used in another projector. If it weren't for that this would be one of the best projectors going. I recommend it with that caveat.
This thing extends very high up
It takes 200 watt bulbs if you can find them I was worried about how high you can extend this from the table it really really extends very high up.More so then my 20 year old kopy kake projector. It's very light weight but it's made of aluminum and strong plastic. The clamp to the table is really sturdy. It has a great overhang on the table so don't worry about it being too close to the edge.

Just what the doctor ordered.
from Gray, Maine
Aside from the bulb having a broken filament,(I replaced it with one out of my old projector), it works like a charm.

Makes my creative life so much better
from Salt Lake City, UT
I use this projector as part of my many tools in my studio. I can transfer my drawings onto larger and smaller canvas and/or drawing paper. I have saved so much time and am able to be more productive. The adjustable arm and lens are easy to use and has made my professional life much easier. Thank you!
Just what I was looking for!
I was looking for something to reproduce my pictures in larger sizes to put on canvas and paint. I love not spending weeks trying to get a drawing right when all I really want to do is paint! I love it! Been saving on printer ink too!

Really happy with the projector. Only thing is the light bulb only lasted 1-2 hours.

NEED A BETTER BULB
By MATT THE ARTIST
from TUCSON, ARIZONA
UNIT WAS REALLY NICE. EASY TO ASSEMBLE AND USE. THE PROBLEM I HAD WAS THE 250 W PHOTO BULB (AND I ORDERED A BACKUP BULB WHEN I PURCHASED THE UNIT) DIDNT LAST A MINUTE BEFORE IT WENT OUT. i PLACED THE BACKUP BULB IN, AND IT LASTED A MINUTE. [...]BUT I FOUND A 3-WAY 50W-125W-250W BULB AT [...] THAT WORKS AND HAS A LIFE OF 1600 HOURS COMPARED TO THE 4-HOUR LIFE PHOTO BULB SUPPLIED WITH THE UNIT.THE 3-WAY BULB WILL USE THE 250W SETTING IF ITS PLACED IN A UNIT WITHOUT A 3-WAY SWITCH. THESE BULBS WERE ABOUT $3.50 EACH. OTHERWISE WITH THE NEW BULBS I FOUND ([...] GE BULB)THE UNIT WORKED WELL. THE DARKER THE BETTER WITH THIS PROJECTOR. I USE IT TO TRANSFER 4X6 PHOTOS TO CANVAS.
Very nice opaque projector!
I purchased this item several months ago. Very happy with the purchase. I've used it over and over again to transfer photos to canvas and also for scale comparison. It has one bulb and a fan (that's not very noisy). Because the bulb is 250 watts the machine can be very hot at times. The bulbs are hard to find to replace and only last 100 hours at best. You won't find the bulb in a hardware store you have to special order it from the company or from this company (from my experience). The focusing is very nice and sharp in smaller sizes and color is nicely represented as well. It can reduce an image if you flip the eye piece around but it's best known for enlarging a photo or graphic onto a canvas. You can not use any photo larger than 6X6. I usually print out a photo from my computer on 4X6 photo paper then use the machine to enlarge the image project it onto a 16X20 canvas. It works very well! Be prepared to do this in a very dark room for best results.
