oh man. thanks for the heads up. basically there are no affordable projectors that can project a 100 inch 16:9 image from 21 feet. bummer, but thanks for the info.

chamberc, what prevents you from moving the projector closer or using a bigger screen? Most people who project outdoors go much bigger - see http://www.backyardtheater.com/ .

a pool is the main obstacle. i suppose i could try the yard master 2 135 inch but that's getting pretty big.

chamberc, funny, I thought you might say that. I built a 200" screen for our pool back in 2007 and had a similar problem and had to use the projectorcentral search tool to find a projector with the right zoom (~34 ft distance). Haven't used the screen in a couple of years and thought about the HD25-LV because the brightness and picture quality would be much, much better but the calculator says the projector would have to be 26 ft away which would require a small table near the edge of the pool versus the mount I have on the side of the house.


135 in. isn't too big if everyone is sitting 20 ft from the screen.

Nice setup! yes, I'm going to have to find some projector to do the distance vs. size I'm forced to work with.
