I'm looking for the best fabric to use for my screen . I read on a other thread that milliskin spandex Is good but I'm looking for high gain, for a fair amount of ambient light and how do I go about measuring for my screen ? I am between 12'-14' feet back from screen . Now for lens questions . I have heard I can use a camcorder lens 58mm x7 HD wide angle lens I seen this done on youtube I dont know if he replaced the lens in the Epson 3020 or if he attached it some how and removed the old lens , is that possible? I can't afford the $1200 panamorphic lens the method i was looking at cost between $70-$250.If this is true how do I go about removing the old lens ands installing a new one. I'll post a link on the video I seen but the guy didn't show how he did it.

This is still zooming, not using an anamorphic lens.

There are two clips :

Clip 1
Clip 2

I am not sure what zoom range the Epson has, but it must not be enough for his room length or size screen he wanted, so what he has done is to add an additional zoom lens. It has been done before and there are photos in the official 235 picture thread.
