I just had the lead lens builder at Panamorph take a look at the pic - it's a UH380.

I just won this auction on ebay. The seller says it is a U480 Lens, so we will see when I receive it. Either way, this should be a good setup for my first lens. I have been doing the zoom method for a few years with a JVC Rs1x and a 122" Vutec Silverstar screen. Since the JVC does not have motorized zoom and lens shift, I got tired of adjusting things everytime.

Grats, man! I would have bid on it, but no shipping to Canada. frown.gif

Looks like you got a good deal, when you consider the sled and all.

Congrats on winning the auction, that's a great price for what you're getting.

I do have to say that I agree with John, that appears to be a UH380 rather than a 480. The 380's rear optical element (the square piece of glass in the back) was perpendicular to the lens's central axis; the 480's rear optical element was angled. The pictures in the auction appeared to show a perpendicular - rather than angled - rear element.

The reason for the angle in the later models were due to the way that rear element interacted with the wire grid polarizers in the JVC's projectors. Because the 380's rear element was perpendicular to the axis through which light traveled, it would reflect some light back into the projector. This reflected light would hit the wire grid polarizers in the JVC projetors and be reflected back out at a slightly different angle, causing a dimmer "ghost" image to appear in the center of the screen. One of the things that Panamorph did to fix this problem in the UH440 and UH480 was to angle the rear element so that the reflected light did not travel directly back into the light engine, thus preventing any ghosting. This can be done with a UH380 if you're even minimally handy, it just requires an appropriately-sized allen wrench and a razor to carve out the new slots in the ribs in the case that hold the rear element in the case. There's a thread about it here if you're interested since you have an RS1 and you will experience the ghosting with a UH380.

I hope the seller was being honest and maybe it is a wierd angle with the lens. I know that the seller was using it on an RS2, so it seems he would have suffered from the same ghosting issue. I'm pretty handy though, so if there is a fix, I am sure I can do it. I will definitely check out that thread.

I searched around for the thread outlining the modification and didn't find anything specific. I kept seeing reference to instructions sent from someone at Panamorph, but not where (or if) they were ever posted. Hogpilot, can you point me in the right direction? Maybe I am not using the right search terms.

The 380 and 480 are almost identical physically, it would be easy for someone to mistake the former for the latter if they weren't the original owner. The rear optical element is the easiest way of differentiating them, but most people probably don't know that.

I'm on the road right now so I'll have to search for the 380 mod instructions later, but I'm sure they're here somewhere. I'll post a link when I find them - worst case scenario I still have the old email from Shawn Kelly so I can repost the instructions from there.

I can't seem to find my original post where I detailed the procedure, but I still had it in my e-mail from 2007. This is what Shawn Kelly sent to me:

"We have proven that reorienting the single back element will take care of your ghost image from the RS1 (AND increase ANSI contrast). It involves surgery on the lens, namely taking the top off, removing the rear prism doublet and the corrector plate, carving the plastic ribs that hold the rear prism in to allow the plate to be installed against the prism, putting a small piece of electrical tape around the plate to keep the surfaces apart slightly, and then reassembling. It works."

Once you open up the lens you'll see exactly what he's talking about - all you need is an allen wrench to remove the casing screws, an exacto knife, some electrical tape, a steady hand, and some patience.

I hesitated posting here, but as a representative of Panamorph here on the Forum, I just want to point out that we generally discourage people opening their lenses up and doing surgery. Officially, I don't endorse you doing this yourself.

Unofficially, be really careful about damaging the case, fingerprints, and dust. Normally I would point out that doing this completely voids your warranty, but seeing that you bought this used...

Sorry, I should have caveated my post - I definitely didn't mean to suggest or even insinuate that Shawn or Panamorph was suggesting this as an "official", sanctioned procedure. It is, however, the only method of allowing the UH380 to work with the RS1 without ghosting (short of trading it in for a UH480). If one is careful and wears latex or cotton gloves (highly recommended), the procedure is relatively simple and should take no more than an hour.

Ha, I know it sounds rather involved, but having done it I can assure you that it's not nearly as difficult as it may sound. The prisms don't really have any slop where they're held, so alignment when re-assembling isn't really an issue.

No problem. I understand your intent.

FYI the lens can also be sent to Panamorph to perform the upgrade. It involves putting the optics in the new housing and coating the interior of the housing with Velux as well (Velux is the same light absorbing material Stewart uses for their screen surrounds). There is a cost however.

John, can you pm me the cost of that procedure? Thanks Hogpilot for providing the info. The lens should be here tomorrow, so I will see what it looks like when it gets here. Is there any chance that a UH380 will not ghost with the RS1, or is it a definite?

Unfortunately no, unless your lens is installed improperly and not aligned to the light path - but that would cause significant geometric distortion of the image. You won't see the ghosting in fully lit scenes, however it will be readily apparent in low brightness scenes where there's some sort of brighter object towards the center of the image. Two instances would be the Sony Pictures Entertainment logo at the beginning of a movie, and the opening scenes of Casino Royale that are in black and white.

I received the lens and sled yesterday. It was indeed a UH380. I did the fix and added some black felt to the inside of the casing while I had it open. I must say that the fix took about 30 min. (including adding the felt), but reassembling the case took 2 hours!!!! For an expensive piece of equipment, the case definitely leaves much to be desired. I know that Panamorph never intended for the lens to be disassembled, but the plastic housing is just too thin/flexible. The little tabs that hold the elements in place are easily deformed and with the flex in the case, it was REALLY hard to align everything to get the lid back on. In the end, I got it; but if I had paid full retail for the lens, I would be disappointed with the build quality. The automatic slide OTOH is constructed well and works nicely. I set it all up last night with my existing ceiling mount and am definitely happy with the preliminary results. I realize that I need to upgrade my mount though. The lens/sled/adapter plate combo adds a little more weight than I am comfortable with for my existing mount. Also, my existing mount does not have enough adjustment to get the lens lined up properly. I ordered a chief mount that should fix up things on that end. Even with the pincushion that I am getting from improper alignment, I am really digging the extra brightness. I will add pics once the new mount comes and I get things dialed in a little better.

The UH380 is a much older design and the case for the 480 has several improvements. However, like you point out, the case was never designed to be back taken apart, and does an extremely good job of doing what it was intended to do - hold the optics in place. smile.gif

Very important - use the Chief mount. The Panamorph plate was designed to be used with the Chief RPA ONLY. If you happened to order a Chief RPM instead, I would seriously cancel the order and get the RPA.

So happy you are enjoying the lens!

No worries, I ordered the RPA mount. One major problem though and it has nothing to do with the lens. Is it true that my Oppo Bdp-93 will not vertically stretch streamed material (Vudu titles for example)?!!! This may be a deal breaker for me. That would mean that I would still have to use the zoom method for everything we watch on Vudu or Netflix which is at least 50% of all of my viewing. Since my projector will not do the stretch, I have nothing else in the chain capable of doing it and I really have no funds left to buy anything else (after the lens/sled and new projector mount). Anyone have any ideas?

Sorry - I have no idea on this one. Perhaps someone here with a 93 can check. I would guess, though, that you are correct - the vertical stretch only works with Blu-rays frown.gif

I got confirmation on the Oppo thread that you can not alter the streaming content in any way with the Oppo. I am really mad at myself for not checking this earlier. It just never occured to me that you would not be able to do this. Now I am really not sure what to do. Adding an external video processor is just not in the cards at this time.

Perhaps someone here (or on E-bay) has an older DVDO processor for sale pretty cheap.

I am going to look for either a newer old JVC (i.e., an rs2, 10, 15, etc.) and try to sell my RS1x or try to find a processor for a good price. Anyone know which older video processors have hdmi and will do the vertical stretch?
