My projector is a BenQ PB6100 DLP machine with a resolution of 800 x 600 which is 4:3 aspect ratio. I've been thinking of upgrading for a while and still haven't seen widescreen DLP projectors in my price range (sub 1000 quid - at least) so I decided to see if I could do something about that. I Managed to get a great price on ebay for a Prismsonic anamorphic lens. Which is designed to convert a 4:3 projector to a 16:9. The lens is a vertical anamorphic type which means your normal projected width stays the same but it squeezes the image vertically. I use a 2 metre wide pull down blackout blind for a screen (did have a 'proper' one but actually prefered the 20 ikea blind for contrast and colour. Go figure). Benefits:- The main benefit for a anamorphic lens is that you use all the DLP panel resolution for movie watching which gives you more 20 % more light and 33% higher vertical resolution with no black bars for 16:9 films. Installation:- I finally got it today and gave it a go. It's not exactly installed yet cause i'm using books etc... to get the right height for the PJ to shine properly into the lens. Once i've got the setup dimensions sorted out, i'll build something more permanent (in a year or two knowing me ) My PJ is mounted upside down on a high shelve at the rear of the room. I did manage to try it out for a short while but i'm waiting for it to get darker to give it a real good go. First impressions:- So far, very positive. It does exactly what it says on the tin. It's converted my 4:3 PJ to 16:9. I'm impressed with the image quality. The image seems to have more snap, probably due to the extra brightness and it's dramatically reduced SDE, actually now invisible from where I normally sit. The colours somehow seem more vibrant and the lack of black bars makes a huge difference in perceived contrast ratio. Piccies:- Here are some snaps. I'll post more of the screen after i've watched a few movies.
