Not knowing what a 8-12fL image from a digital projector looks like, I thought I would ask the forum. Is it that different?
Curious in Detroit.
I am have the JVC RS-DLA-4810 projector in 100% light controlled HT (black ceiling, dark maroon/vine colored walls, screen wall black)
My screen is a bit smaller at 150".
The projector is rear wall shelf mounted to be centered on the screen, with a throw distance of ~16 feet.
When I calibrated my projector, I had to close the iris down completely (-15) with lamp on low, so that the image would not be too bright for me.
Zombie10K and others have insisted this give an image that is to dim.
Maybe for their taste for blazing Best Buy show room plasma image it is dim. But not for me.
The other benefit of not tageting ligh canon brightness, is that at least with my lower brightness image, I have experienced absolutely NO ghosting whatsoever in 3D (from normal seating position, assiting films for enjoyment, rather than from 6" frame-by frame inspection with a magnifying glass).
Nada - zilch
