Let it be know that your HD82 was broken, it's iris chattered on and off like crazy, like a sledgehammer just slamming. My HD8200 and the HD8200 I tested both work perfectly.
The HD8600 does have even faster working iris mechanics, but my HD8200 is pretty quick also. It doesn't flutter around like crazy like the video you showed about your projector. Take is easy on the HD8200 pls.
