For that price, you'll have to turn the lights way down, and sit really close.

I thought that might be the answer.

Actually, I looked through the many projectors stocked by J&R in New York, and there were some good choices.  Slightly more money than you suggested, but it would be a good starting point to compare brands.   JR.COM

Look at some of the projectors at Tiger Direct.  A Benq MP 622c xga projector 2200 lumens for $649 CAD.  That is less than your budget.

These are not bad projectors and will defiinately provide more than enough light for a photo club presentation.  I have used a 6200 series projector with good results with fairly large groups.

Andy, quite a few of the clubs in North Wales have their own digital projectors. Might be worth checking out before buying your own.
