If this function is built in electronically, perhaps you could get one of those Sony universal controllers to do that. Could explain one reason why they're selling them.
It seems that there is no horizontal keystone any more (?). And the lens shift is not exactly as flexible as the old keystone correction in terms of horizontal mis-alignment. Of course, lens shift is a great improvement but as I'd have to put the pj for "extreme side projection" as I currently have to do with the HS10 this is a problem for me. Seems like I cannot place the HS51 at the same location. Bummer.
That's not a problem. The manual clearly states that you could move the screen (using the lens shift feature) horizontally '50%' of screen width & '100%' screen height. According to page 19 of the manual, if you've got a 120" screen, you could move the screen horizontally, up to a maximum of, 52 3/8". That's more than 4 feet left or right relative to the middle of the lens. I think that's absolutely amazing! And you still retain 100% PQ. Try not to use keystoning if at all possible due to loss of PQ. Move furnitures if you have to.
I absolutely love lens shift. Especially the '100% screen height' vertical lens shift the Sony has. They're basically saving me $200 on a ceiling mount plus the hassle of getting it installed. I think that's worth paying a little more for, don't you think?
