Has anyone got one of these? Any comments? Who sells in the UK?
Marata Vision in the UK are looking at distribution of Isco lens. I am awaiting a D'Ila from Christie and an ISCO to play with.
Im using it with a 16:9 7ft screen... I am aware of it being used in the capacity you describe though from the american forums...
Brightness wise... there are far more experts on here than me... but my HT200 is a 4:3 panel.. therefore by leaving the pic in 4:3 mode and using the ISCO... I get a 30% increase in brightness... something like that anyway!
The distortion at the edges of the picture are obvious... most people dont notice though as they arnt viewing with a "critical" eye... (Im referring to friends.. )...
Minimizing the effect it the main part of the setup process... I believe the usual recommendation is to zoom the pic slightly beyond the screen edge...
Thanks for that, I may have more questions depending how I end up going.
Playing with light bulb projectors and bits of glass?, whatever next? <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> I look forward to reading a report. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
I have one, bought from AVScience in the US... excellent service... it was here within 48hrs of the order...
As to the Lens itself... Ive got into HC in the last few months and so found setting the lens up with my HT200 somewhat less than fun... not difficult... you just have to be patient!
Let me know if you want any specific info.
Cheers, I wondered about distortion levels, reduction in brightness, picture quality, that sort of info. Also as you have the HT200 how do you use it and with what ratio screen?. I would like to have a 2.35:1 ratio screen with constant height, the theory is that you start with 4:3 without the ISCO, 16:9 with ISCO maintains the same height and stretches the image horizontally and finally 2.35:1 with the ISCO in place and the projector zoomed in to fit the entire 2.35:1 screen. You can then use electric curtains for masking the sides.
No problem, feel free to email if youd like more information.
