    Sorry if its been posted before but cant find it.
    Going to be fabricating a diy ceiling mount for my new Z1 after reading the faq and various posts i have a few ideas but a few previous posts have included adjustments for moving the pj up and downd a few degrees off level so the angle can be adjusted by a few degrees, i thought as long as you get the pj level all round it would be fine.
    What am i missing?
    Thanks:confused:

    You'll be lucky if your ceiling is precisely level and that would translate to the PJ. If you can, make provision for fine adjustment as everyone says you need it for a reason......you do.

    I use a portable TV bracket and it works very well.

    i use a speaker bracket bolted to a piece of metal shaped to fit mounting holes on z2( which are actually 3x 6mm bolts)
    it has a ball joint arrangement and allows full adjustments which is required to get correct image on screen
    originally thought lens shift would acomodate positioning and is invaluable but you still need a 'square' image to start with
    ie if pj not correctly alligned with screen you get a trapazoid type picture
    so unless you want to use keystone give yourself plenty of scope for adjustments
