okay I am new to all this and I have a ton of questions so any help would be great!! I would like to put a projector on my patio close to my house and a screen on the outside of my patio. I want to watch movies in the pool with kids at night and maybe a ball game sometimes. I have only 9 feet from my back wall to where my screen would hang. What is the best projector with the shortest throw for around 1500 for an outdoor application like this? I could spend more if you all tell me I need to. I think a large image is more important to me then picture quality. How large an image will I be able to get? Will it be completly unwatchable during the day? What is the best retractable screen to project an image through?
Thank you for any suggestions.
