I was watching Ice Age yesterday and the wife was writing a letter at the table with a lamp on with a 60 watt bulb right next to the image. As you can see, the image was still very easy to view and I thought it may be of interest to people who are contemplating buying one. The room was actually much brighter than my digi camera is able to portray in the first pic. The other image is from the new Resident Evil movie and I just love the fine detail the relatively modest 4805's resolution can produce. This is a fine, fine projector.
