If you set up your screen for 1.75/.85, 70% of the film will fill the screen and 30% (maybe not even) will have letterbox bars top and bottom (as those scenes are 2.35).
You wouldn't have bars on...

I've seen claims that it's 70% in 1.75 and from my viewing I would say that is very close. I also have a constant height set up and found the shifting AR for the Dark Knight movies annoying. This...

I upgraded my FPJ-1 to the 4910 back in late September.
It's a substantial upgrade in several areas- the most noticeable would probably be the absolute black levels due to the added iris.

The translation I read was wonky, but the bottom line seemed to be all positive. All the loss and drift seemed to be well within acceptable parameters...unless I read it wrong.

This is what I was alluding to. You can take your time buying just the right screen (in terms of not only gain but size). You don't need to be thinking that it is something you need immediately as...

Are you asking if there is a lens cover on the 4910?
If so, the answer is yes. A manual one (which I personally prefer) and nicely designed too- very secure with some felt pads around the perimeter...

I would still go with the JVC.

1) E-Shift (if you need it) for that screen size and distance
2) Better native contrast ratio which an additional lens won't change (on the other pj)
3) Lens...

No. Not as silent with e-shift. In fact I posted about the whine (it's more like a higher pitched hum), and several people responded that they didn't hear anything.

You won't have black bars unless the content is actually 2.40 or 2.55 (like Ben Hur)
Most is around 2.35...and the black bars on a 2.55 movie on a 2.35 screen are negligible imo.

There is no way...
