Product Description:
Kopykake KOBRA K5000 Artist Opaque PROJECTOR with Table Clamp - Bestseller!

The Kopykake KOBRA K5000 Projector will project Any Full-Page (8-1/2" x 11") image from any book, magazine, photo or anything (even 3-d objects!) down onto your drawing or art table for you to sketch-out onto paper or canvas. This high-end projector will capture every hair and detail!

Fantastic for Illustrators!
This is the only full page accepting projector on the market!

This is not "cheating!" It is recorded that in 1490 Leonardo Da Vinci himself used a prototype "camera obscura" in his paintings. The camera obscura eventually evolved into the opaque projector. The art is in blending your colors and painting!

    Remove the Kobra projector head from the stand to project horizontally onto walls up to 20X the original image size for murals.
    (While Kobra can project horizontally, it is not, however, recommended as a presentation projector.
    It is primarily recommended as the overhead drawing projector that will project down onto your table top.
    The table-clamp is perfectly sturdy to hold this 25 lb. projector. There is no floor stand available for horizontal projection.)

    From the front of the projector arm to the center of the lens it measures 27".

    heavy cumbersome and not smooth to focus.
    By: Mary M from Crystal Lake IL on 05/17/2013
    Although it looks like your 1960s grade school opaque projector, it does the job well. I use it on a cart to project on the wall and I am impressed with the tight image it holds. I wish I could move the original paper image, while it is projecting, but it is within the light box. Money well spent!!!

    An awesome machine at the lowest price I could find anywhere. I am happy... I was also happy with the quick delivery time. I will definitely shop with Madison in the future.

    I bought one and it is horrible to work with. If I do not have a 8 1/2 X11 photo to put in it then I cant get it to work where it is a little clear. And even if I get it in and it is clear I cannot enlarge it because it gets fuzzy and disappears. Does anyone know how to enlarge and focus this thing? I am so disappointed.

    Excellent Service, Good Communication. Item was shipped and delivered as promised. The K500 was easy to assemble and works as advertised. The only suggestion I would make, is to work in a dark room to see your picture accurately.

    I purchased the projector Kobra K5000 just before... and got it really quick.. It was easy to put together and I love using it... In fact, I recommended it to my friend and she got one too... Very pleased in the projector... I have also purchased other items from Madison Art Shop and will check with them on each purchase in the future... The prices are so reasonable...

    Does as advertised and for the best price I could find. I Hope to get many years of use.
    P.S. I would definitely buy from Madison Art Shop again. Good price and prompt service.

    Item recieved with apparently all parts intact; however, no
    setup instructions, parts inventory or usage instructions.
    When, and if, these arrive I trust the product will live up to expectations.

    the cobra is just what i was looking for . . . i think i used something similar years ago and we called it a Lucy . . . i was getting a bad image and then i read the directions!! and peeled off the blue protective sheet on the mirror . . . i got what i was looking for . . a nice sharp clear image . . . The service from Madison was fantastic. The packing was fine and it arrived speedy speedy fast! I am very happy with this purchase and glad there was plenty of info on their website to shop and compare what would be best for my needs.

    This projector allows one to use the largest photo image of any projector that I'm aware of and probably projects the brightest image. That being said, the incadescent bulbs get hot. The fan helps but unfortunately there is not a separate switch for the fan and light. Turning the light off, turns the fan off. If the fan could be controlled separately, one could use the projector for several minutes and then turn off the light and let the fan cool down the unit and then switch the light back on again.
    I use the projector for artwork on canvas. It will project horizontally by laying the projector on its side, but there is no lens adjustment. You have to move the canvas in or out to arrive at the proper size image and then focus by sliding the projected image back and forth inside the projector. Unless you're projecting a very large image, the distance between the projector and canvas is limited so it can be difficult to work in such a confined space.
    Although you can see an image in a partially lit room, a dark room is necessary to get full color.
    Madison sells this projector far cheaper than anyone else. Why pay more? Mine was shipped the day after they received my order. It serves my purpose although it could be improved upon for horizontal projecting.

    I absolutely love my Kobra K5000; it works exactly as advertised....AND I can use it in the daylight. I couldn't believe it when I tried using it in daylight, and actually captured details. The directions were easy --my husband set it up. The projector arrived so fast after I ordered it, I thought it must have been another delivery instead. Love it, love it!

    Very happy with this purchase. It was exactly as advertised, the price was the best I could find on the internet, and it was shipped very quickly. It works very well - it does help to use in the dark. Using it during the day, I put black foam panels on the sides to block the natural light. I am very satisfied with this purchase.Thank you.

    Perfect Item at a Perfect Price from an Awesome Retailer. Does life get any better?
    By: Gerald J from Tomah, WI on 03/05/2011
    Delivery was extremely fast. The K5000 works as advertised. Will do business with Madison Art Shop in the future. Very pleased with service and quality of product.

    Couldn't believe the fast delivery! Exactly as described. Great savings! Will buy from this company anytime.

    I love the Internet! Where else can someone from the state of Arizona (may I see your immigration papers please?) find a great product like the Kopykake Kobra K5000 in New Jersey at such a great price! The only rub is I had to leave a telephone message with Madison to confirm whether the product was shipped due to my on-line order falling over a holiday, but Madison called me back on a SUNDAY to confirm shipment! Got the product on the predicted day! Great service! Set up the K5000 and the clarity of the projection is excellent. Great product-can't wait to use it. I am very happy!
    By: Leesah Stapf from Royersford, Pennsylvania on 08/01/2010
    This product is EXACTLY what I needed! The price at Madison was by far the best -- beating out countless internet sites! One of it's best features is that it can reproduce from images as large as 8"x10". I just finished an illustration of John Mayer and next on the list is Chris Noth (Mr. Big), Jennifer Aniston and Lady Gaga. This list is growing and I couldn't be happier! Thank you for offering this product at such a great price!!!
