I agree, more the better. But of course I would say that .

Well I did hear that this lens was going to be cheap and I like to show my support to get everyone on board for scope that's all.

So your lens works with the cine slide also Mark?

It's all one word: CineSlide™. As in Cinemascope. Couldn't make it CinemaSlide, didn't have a good ring to it .

Talking about the "cineslide" I've seen it in action and was very impressed. Once my kino linear ( which I got on a package deal at a great price ) decides to give up I will be looking at the cineslide.

I need to get a photo of someone's XEIT on a CineSlide. The ones I had were a temp install, not suitable for publication

Definitely and a few other lenses also just to show what the cineslide can mount too.

OK, last one, got to get back to work. Heres one of the very first CineSlides with your lens on it. It still looks basically the same, but the current Cineslide is very different from this old one:



That mount was an experiment, I stopped making it though. That photo is actually the CineSlide sitting on a table, photo turned upside down

Thats the winning shot. I'm glad that my lens work will with your sled and others too.

When you get some more time you should show other lenses with your product Scott.

Yes isn't that interesting. Definitely one of my better purchase, Mark. Except for the constant reminder from the better half of how much I paid it. "It's just a piece of glass". Lol. At least she can't deny the performance. Truly worth ever penny to me. And have you priced diamonds lately. Nuff said.

Anyone know if the ISco IIIL will work with the Benq W7000 (identical to w6000) in physical layout? Max zoom and throw is 1.5
Thanks

If it is the same as the W6000, then yes it will. My optics are the same size as those used in an ISCO III and I can use the full zoom without vignetting.

Ha, nothing wrong with that. At least she wants to watch the movie. I learned at a GTG that many guys' wives (partners etc) won't join them because they see it as the guys hobby and don't want to intrude. your lucky your wife (like mine) wants to share the experience.

Just had to snag this pic posted by fellow videophile W.Mayer of his dual Barco/Isco 1.25 4K3D projection system. He could quite possibly have the finest projection system in the world. A true spectacle.

That is impressive. For some reason, I though he had turned anti A-Lens, but to use 2 x ISCO 1.25 units, clearly not

Hi Mark. So had I but he discusses in detail on another couple threads about the $15k Isco cinemaDLP 1.25 A Lens and the superiority of it when he compares it to the Isco III. From bouncing around and reading his posts it sounds like his complaint with the distortion which he demonstrates is what we call pincushion. If I understand him right he says the 1.25 doesnt have pincushion and focus is prefect at the extreme edges as well. Is this a fully geometrically corrected lens? Getgray can comment here but he stated both have the identicle glass. Maybe Mayer is seeing the distortion because his new projector's need the 1.25x lens due to the 1.896 AR. Remember these are 17:9 projectors unless run at 2160x3840.
