I built a new case today. Sorry no photos yet. My kids are on vacation with the camera. I thought I would share some ideas...
I'm not very handy with tools and building things (unless it is with LEGOS). I was having a difficult time working with MDF... splitting wood, the dust is horrible, doing multiple cuts, etc.
I went to Lowes today and bought some 1"x10" A-stock pine boards. They were already very close to the proper width I wanted (9 1/2") so all I had to do was cut the other sizes (2- 5 1/4" and 2- 8 1/2") and nail/screw everything together. It really turned out nice. I don't think I'll do the fancy angled cut on the front that others have done. I also bought a 1"x4" board to work on the mounting bracket. The cost was about $15.
I'll post some photos late Saturday or Sunday.
I have to say again that these prisms are great! There is some light loss using the prisms... probably about the same as when i zoomed the image before. But the prisms are way cooler and easier to use than zooming and positioning the image on the screen plus the image doesn't get softer as it does when zooming. The AR coating is amazing. I have yet to see any stray reflections on the screen. Yea, I have some geometry issues at the edges of the screen and a little CA, but you really don't notice those issues when watching a movie.
