    Hi,

    I'm assuming your mean a projector that has a horizontal AS WELL as vertical lens shift as this is what Sony called the feature when they first introduced it.

    But I'm afraid I don't know any others with horizontal lens shift except the Sony machines.

    Anyone else know of any others?

    My Panasonic PTAE-300 does it. Doesn't move the lense but adjusts the picture for off-centre viewing. Works really well. My PJ is about 8" to the left of the centre of the screen but the PJ compensates by altering the picture geometry so it looks spot on when it hits the screen.

    Thank for your help this makes it a lot easer

    UrbanT !

    Long time ago I was purchasing manager for large touring company here in Australia, we purchased 1,800,000 AUD worth of Sony product (Pro gear for bands) it started to fall apart and stop working with in 3 months so we returned complete order back to them. Got my ass kicked big time was a fan be for that !

    Every since then I have never bought any Sony product or any retagged products

    Panasonic AE700
    Hitachi TX100

    look very good

    What you bought has no relevance to the home cinema market and the products available. It was also many years ago. Perhaps its time to let the grudge go? :)

    thewarpers right. Sony are crap. I've got a 15 inch Sony tv that must easily be 10 years old in the bedroom and the sodding thing still keeps going.

    I'll never get a LCD for the bedroom at this rate.

    What is it about wives and upgrades eh...

    In fact, he's convinced me as well.

    Who wants my HS50 for £100, and my 900 DVD player for £20?

    Best cut my losses and all that :eek:

    Don't discount the Z3 it's a cracking machine. Saying that though if money had not been an issue I might have bought the HS50.
    I've never had any bad experience with sony equipment mind.
