Mitsubishi HC6000 - Page 3

"The projector puts out the most light when the lens is at its widest angle setting. Moving the lens from maximum wide angle to maximum telephoto reduces lumen output by about 24%, which is less of a reduction than we've seen on most other zoom lenses with 1.6x zoom range

The reason that I ask: I would really like to shelf mount this projector (could ceiling mount but not ideal for my room), which would be 208 from the lens to a 106 diagonal (92 wide X 52 height) screen. Mitsubishi suggests that it has a throw range of 1.4-2.26 which I think means this: 1.4*92= 128.8 to 2.26*92= 207.9.

1.)If this is the case, would I be loosing light from the projector or would I be in a more optimal / favorable lighting situation.

2.)What kinds of issues could I have by being at this extreme end of the manufactures specifications?

3.)If this does not sound like a good fit, could someone recommend a projector in the $3-5K range that would be a better fit.

I know that this should not be trivial, but I just want to make sure that I understand correctly. I really appreciate any help that I could get.

Thank You in Advance for any help.

I'm too lazy to do the math, but yours looks correct.

But yes, many (most) PJs are dimmer if they are used at the long end of their throw and brighter at the short (closer to the screen). OTOH, most have better CR at the longer throw and less at the short end. It's often a trade-off between what works for your installation (in your case you need a long throw) and what performance trade-offs you're willing to accept.

According to the manual, you can adjust the contrast & brightness for each colour +/-60 (page en-25). Is CMS something different?

Yes, a good CMS will allow you to completely dial in all the primary and secondary colors with precision... you can't do this with the controls you're describing.

Okay.

Still, you should be able to do decent colour calibration with just contrast/brightness per RGB colour, no?

So what's the throw ratio on the HC6000 to produce a 100" diagonal screen? My room is 15 x 15 ft and 9 ft high. Also, i guess all front projectors can be mounted in a tripod, right? Sorry, kinda newbie with this

Folks we'll all have to wait about 10 days or so for the review, as Jason is on vacation until Nov 2nd.

And no one is more impatient than me, as my new 6000 is the PJ Jason is calibrating and using for the review!

It was really diabolical of Jason to tease us with his post that the HC6000 arrived in his hands... and then go on vacation...

yeah rell me about it. Trying to figure out weather to pull the triger on the 6000 or the panny2000 arg

I have it at home since Thursday but It's my first vpr and so I can hardly do a review. Images looks beatiful to me with both HD and SD material. I think that the most wonderful thing in this projector is the iris : it' s really impossible to notice even after hours and hours of viewing and suddenly passing from bright to dark images is accomplished lightning fast without artifacts. I'm no expert but I'm pretty sure of the great iris capabilities.

Acta7, what dvd player are you using with the Mits?
post #75 of 655
Another quick question for one of you Projector experts. I have a 90" high ceiling with a 106" diagonal screen (52"X92) and I want to mount this projector from the ceiling. Currently, the top edge of my screen is 5" from the ceiling so based upon a vertical lens shift of this unit, how far from the ceiling should I need to drop the center of the lens to cover my screen. Any help or thoughts would be appreciated. I really want to keep it as close to ceiling as possible as to not obstruct the view of my rear seats.

Any help would be much appreciated. I really like this projector but I want to make sure it works for me. Thanks

I'm using PS3 for both BD and DVD ( but I'm not using PS3 upscale, I just leave the job to the Reon HQV inside the vpr )

Look at page 12 of the manual to determine whether your installation will work:

Great! Looking forward to your impressions of your new toy!

Mine will arrive Thursday, I have just finished hanging drywall so it will be 3-4 weeks before I am truly ready for all my new electronics. FYI, I will be projecting onto a 119" Da-Lite HP in a totally light controlled room.
post #81 of 655
So with the adjustable lens shift, I will be able to say, set this on a bookcase shelf rightside up behind the viewing area? (I rent so I can't put holes in the ceiling!)

China... ?
post #83 of 655
UMM no, very much stateside, lets just say I paid sales tax. Well the insurance comp is paying it. Part of a lightning strike.
post #84 of 655
Mine is arriving tomorrow (ordered from AVS).

I am just now in the tape/mud process of my dedicated theater but I will be playing with this tomorrow anyway.

Mine is going in next week with a 106" matte white Dragonfly screen.

Is there an English PDF of the HC6000 user manual available?

Can someone point me in the right direction?
post #88 of 655
We just got in the HC6000's so they just became available in Hong Kong. I cant be 100% but I am pretty sure it has the D6 panels in it.
I cant wait to put it up against the AE2000 but those will be another week or two before they arrive.
Hopefully I can give some impressions soon!

Has anyone imported one of the much cheaper Japanese HC6000's?

The only hitch is that the OSD is in Japanese, like the latter imported HC5000's.

Im sorely tempted but worried about how difficult it would be to operate and have calibrated. Now if I could get a manual in English that might help considerably...

So now one has gone the low road and imported?

And do the Hong Kong units also have a Japanese OSD? or is it in Chinese or English?
post #90 of 655
Granted that I am biased, I still think the Hong Kong versions are a better bet. Everything is English, OSD, remote, manual and you get a longer warranty.
Cheers
