If you have a projector that doesn’t have an HDMI port available in the backside of the projector.

So in this case you will need the HDMI to VGA Adapter (Check out the price on Amazon). HDMI female and VGA male.

Step 2: HDMI cable to the projector. The process will be the same. But after that, you don’t have to put the HDMI cable directly in the HDMI port of the projector.

Before that use the HDMI to VGA adapter. And connect the normal head HDMI cable in the HDMI female of the adapter. And then connect the VGA male at the VGA port of the projector.

This extra step is only if you have a VGA port at the backside of the projector.

I am here using the power bank for the power source. So that we can freely move to shoot with our DSLR. If you are going to use the camera in only one place.

Then you can also power up the transmitter with the power adapter of your smartphone. And connecting the adapter to the power outlet.
