PANASONIC PT-RZ470UK FULL HD LED LASER FOR COMMERCIAL USE:
sorry for the delay, to clarify, I did not purchase this projector for my own use, rather, it was purchased for a client on mine. I work for a high end audio/video retailer in Manhattan for more than 2 decades. we used a 96x54 Stewart screen with ST1.3 in a total dark room.
I did not take any measurements of any kind, just used my trained ISF eyes to evaluate this projector.
This is definitely a commercial projector and lacking videophile settings.
Brightness: very bright out of the box and very GREEN, (that is how we get 3000 lumens) totally unusable for a home theater projector. The best and the closest to 6500K and a decent gray scale, was the "NATURAL" setting mode which is sRGB compliant; The overhaul brightness drops dramatically, yet very bright still (twice as bright as the Runco Q750i LED).
Lens shift: it is very easy to setup lens shift up/down/left/right, took us less than 30 seconds to center it to the screen.
Focus: better DLPs are known for their extremely sharp and detailed picture. We used the internal crosshatch test pattern and managed to get a sharp detail results(seeing pixel structure) but noticed a slight white greenish halo on the crosshatch which I have never seen on our other DLP projectors (that might be due to the green laser phosphor being used in this projector).
NO iris! there is no doubt that this projector could benefit from an iris ability; dark scenes are good but a bit too gray to my taste( I love the iris on the Q750i).
3D: the projector has a "3D sync terminal" which has 2 settings: DLP Link and 3D Sync. I used the Monster Cable 3D active glasses and set it up to "DLP link" mode and got a very "washed out" results...changed to "3D Sync" corrected the problem. I played 10 different 3D movies (after fine tuning the monster glasses) the results were absolutely amazing!!! best I have seen on DLP, comparing to projectors from SIM2 and RUNCO= NO GHOSTING!!, NO CROSS-TALK!! with superb clean background. I used the "STANDARD" mode for 3D viewing. colors were clean and natural through the glasses.
2D: again, I prefer the "NATURAL" mode, bright, dynamic and detailed with a great depth of field. Dark scenes didn't crash into the background, yet, I felt like turning the brightness down, an iris engine, would have been great.
Anamorphic?....NO SORRY. the projector has 2 modes called : H FILL and V FILL.....they don't work if your source is 1920 by 1080. I tried many Blu Ray discs with 1:2.35 no vertical stretch for anamorphic lens....too bad
customers who passed by our store were introduced to the projector and all had nothing to say but: "WOW".
to sum up, great product for the money, I assume majority of movie lover will be very happy with it
