I'm looking into the VPL-HW15, but I have a question for HW15 owners about lens shift.
Looking through Sony's manual
, they make it really hard to figure out lens shift, with not only an obtuse formula, but the offset they use is a measurement from screen center not to the projector's lens center, but to the top of their own $800 mount. Grrr, not very useful. (I'm looking at the drawing and chart on pp 71-72 of the above linked manual. The formula "y (max) = 8.0942 (5/16) x SS + 268.5 (10 9/16)" makes no sense to me and I can't get a reasonable number from it, with SS = screen size in inches or mm.)
So in my HT, my ceiling flush mount typically puts the lens about 13-14" above the screen top, for a 100" screen. I think
it looks like that will work with the HW15 but I'm not at all sure. Can anyone confirm that this is in the vertical lens shift range?
