Wow, 1200 lumens best case for me would be a disaster with the throw and size screen I'm painting. I would reckon I'd be somewhere around 800 lumens with a 30% reduction for my throw with a new
bulb. That's with iris open and high bulb! With a further 30% reduction for bulb wear, we're looking at 560 lumens. Would hate to use stretch for 2.37 ratio at this light output level. Also, if we turned the iris on for best contrast, where would those numbers fall?
We just measured an RS20 and it had 700 lumens, exactly what the C3X 1080 we were looking at had, so this projector loses a lot of it's advantage on the larger screens if this is what they're coming in at.
It seems to me like someone at the company should be at least letting their dealers and/or customers know what is happening, or this could turn into Mark Zuckerberg part trois.
