sure they might fit 1% of the population...
Ok, perhaps that analogy's a bit strong, but:
Assuming you do not want to decimate your image with keystone correction, my goodness what kind of standard room (read ceilings 10' or less) application can you get away with using a projector that outputs the bottom of the image ~the middle of the PJ 12-18ft from the screen?
Coffee table placement, or 2, 3, 4 feet off the floor with no traffic between it and the wall 12-18 ft away? Completely ignoring of course how goofy it would appear.
Prolly just belly-aching here as I was considering an Epson 3010 PJ and Optoma HD33, but l'm now laughing at how they're completely out of the question for what I view as a very typical space.
I realize I'll probably draw out every single human who makes do without it, but I'm beginning to realize why the threads for otherwise great PJ's without lens shift are so much smaller than their counterparts.
Have a great weekend!
