It shouldn't be a problem in my home theater but we'd also like to take it outside in the summers to do "movie night" on the back of the house. (We've got a 2-story windowless area that's great for projection.) But in these cases we'd HAVE to have keystone correction.
Can any of you 8350 owners confirm or correct this?
It is my understanding that with the lens-shift feature, keystone correction is not necessary. The instructions say to keep the projector perpendicular (square plumb/level) to your viewing surface. When you turn the lens-shift dials, it moves the picture up/down left/right, while maintaining a picture that does not need keystone correction. If you were to angle the projector, for example from a ceiling to the center of a screen, it would not look right. It must be square/level to the screen.
So to answer your question, it does not have keystone correction, but it does not need it due to the lens-shift feature.
