Is anyone using a Carada with a Mitsu HC6800???
I am considering a Carada Criterion BW 118 diag in 16/9 format. I thought that the Criterion would be easier to mask with the foam masks mentioned elsewhere in the forum since they may fit just by friction within the 1" border? of the screen.
According to PCentral, the screen brightness would be around 21 FL for that screen..Would that be a good FL target...particularly over time when the lamp dims out?? I don't want to have a too dim screen..
Does anybody knows if the PCentral calculations are based on the Projector in High or low lamp???
I woud like to have a 2.35:1 screen, but a 103" wide will give me just a 43" ht image in 16/9 format program...which may be too small....a 110 Wide will be 46" ht in 16/9 and 19 FL which could be a good compromise....but my room is just about 12 ft wide, so it is maybe too close....Otherwise, using some type of horizontal masking on the 16/9 might do the trick, and I may end with the best of both worlds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was considering a HP 2.8 screen, but my sample yielded to high black levels which I don't like, considering that the Mistus 6800 is not a high contrast projector... that concerns me.....I understand that samples won't tell the whole story,,,but thats what I got to test....Will the Carada BW have a similar effects on the blacks levels..?????
