Hi I too need to know about the zoom ratio. I'm new here, been trawling these great forums and you have all helped me so much gaining knowledge for my first HT.
I am about to pull the trigger on the W1070, my first projector, it's the final link to go with the oppo 103 and Pioneer lx75.
I have to put the projector 330 cms back from the screen ceiling mounted. After I put everything into the calculator it says that at 330 cms I will need to zoom to the maximum 1:30 to throw to a 100" screen.
Ideally I only want a 92" screen as i'm not far from the screen, about 3 metres but if my calculations are correct then the projector is too far away for this size screen.
I would appreciate a little help in this as I live in Thailand and if anyone knows here, it is incredibly difficult to find anyone who knows their profession inside out, i'm getting all kinds of different answers, it's also $600 more than it costs in Europe, Oz or the U.S and i'm being fobbed off with 120hz Asus glasses !
So does it sound about right that at 330cms from the screen, I could not have 92" and can only have 100" if zoomed right in and as per the post above, zooming like that, does it affect quality at all?
I wonder if there is a bracket for it that is telescopic and has depth also, like an L shape, to get it nearer to the screen?
