    New more comprehensive review posted, well worth a read. See www.Cine4Home.de (use babel fish or similar to translate).

    They seem to reckon that the lense shift causes convergence problems :rolleyes:
    Has anybody noticed this on theirs?

    as i understand it - it means that different colours shift by more than others. Hence there may some ghosting... Thats my guess though.

    Well even if nobody had noticed it before, they will now!

    what is interesting is that in natrual mode the perfect colour is achieved but without the contrast of the other modes. the colour is way off in normal and dynamic mode.

    The notes on contrast are interesting. If only 950:1 is possible with correct colours then both the HS20 and TX100 out perform the AE700 in terms of contrast - at least from what i can understand from cine4home.de (assuming you are using correct colours).

    Might be tweakable though I guess.

    Interesting point..

    I looked back at their TX100 review, and there they claimed to get up to 800:1 with correct colours. Did they further improve on that with later tweaks?

    Even at 800:1, it's quite close to the AE700..

    edit: re. the TX100; they referred to the 800:1 figure in their tuning article as an "intermediate result", and went on to say that they hoped to go over 1000:1 with further tweaking. Does anyone know if they managed to do that?

    I 'read' a piece where they seemed to have tweaked it to 1100:1

    if 800 --> 1100 was the improvement on the TX100 then hopefully a similar percenatge improvement can be got from the ae700
