I'm kinda interested in the new models. I don't know what the specs are for the 4810.
Does it have the new E-Shift thingy?
How do you like the new model? Plus and minus over the RS2?
I always found the RS2 loses it's focus a little while warming up and the picture posistion adjustment is a real pain. Have you found this improved on the new model?
Okay going back to the Osram lamp.
White uniformamity has smoothed out. Very close to perfect. It just needed some extra hours on it. I have never found a digital projector with 100% white uniformamity. However this new lamp is close enougth for me (Mr Fussy). Let's hope it holds. The Philips went way off at 400 hours.
A trick I have picked up from the JVC lamps (I have used 2) is to stick it in high lamp mode for 2 movies (or 4 hours) and then put back to normal lamp mode. After another 3 movies (or 6 hours). White smoothes right out to perfect again. However it does take about 10 hours to get right.
Speaking of 10 hours. I ran the Osram for 11 hours solid yesterday. No faults. Perfect. No overheating.
Now got 25 hours on it. All great. I'm loving the extra brightness. I think this is the best images from this projector yet.
I checked the Crimps. Still really tight. Gave it just a little more of a tweak. Will check at 100 hours.
