The projector calculator is actually showing a brighter picture on the hs10 than the 8350 even though it has almost twice the lumens. The projector is 18 ft back on a 120" white screen. This for the epson leaves 11 fl's which I am disapointed in I thought it would be a bit higher. Thoughts?
Here's a lumen summary from the reviews of these projectors on ProjectorCentral:
Dynamic mode with color temperature set on high, Cinema Black off, and the Cinema Filter off = 984 ANSI lumens.
Color temperature control from High to Low = 832.
Cinema Black on, color temperature still set on Low = 700.
Color temperature at Middle = 851.
Cinema Filter, Cinema Black on, color temperature at Middle = 454
Cinema Filter, Cinema Black on, color temperature at Low = 359
All in high lamp mode. Eco mode drops output 22%
Dynamic preset = 1507 lumens
Living Room preset= 951
Natural and Cinema presets both = 560
Distance is a factor but I don't know what the HS10 reduction % is off hand. The 8350 goes down by 39%.
Hope this helps a little.
