The DNP Epic is superior to the Black Diamond in terms of screen uniformity and lack of sparkle - BUT - it does almost nothing to compensate for ambient light that comes from the side. It rejects...

The optics on the newer FVX200 are superior to the older F75J for sure, but as you said - you got the older lens for a song. And yes, provided the throw distances and ratios work out, the lens...

The VW95 does not have lens memory, so the only way to do 2.35:1 is to get an anamorphic lens (unless you want to manually zoom and lens shift the projector every time you change aspect ratios). The...
