Guys i m thinking of getting an A-lens, but if someone can explain to me or tell me if i m mistaken about my thinking plz.
my screen now is 135inch 16:9 and usually what i do when watching 2.35:1 movies is let MadVR shift the while image down and i ll mask the double black bars on top, with that solution i m getting arouns 65nits on screen with my JVC.
Yesterday i was reading a lot about A-lens and thought id give it a try even without the lens just to see what i need to do, so i kept the masking system in place and now i have a 2.35:1 screen , same size i use to watch my movies, than i zoomed the projector to fit a 16:9 image, that gave me a huge brightness boost from 65nits to around 104nits, so basically I went from 135inch 16:9 to 103inch 16:9 with black bars on the sides.
I put a movie on and had 2 black bars top and left, i let my JVC do the anamorphic A strech which strech the image vertically to fill those bars.
Now if i have the A-lens i would put it in place and have 2.35:1 with same size as with my zooming method but with a lot more brightnes/pixel fill with some small artifact from scaling ??
Am i correct ?
For me going from 60nits to 100nits is big, i use JVC only for movies so i dont really care about 16:9 on it , i have another projector for that.
I dont know how i didnt think of this before, since with 100nits on screen i can close the iris more for SDR to get even better contrast .
