Open ended Q any other idea for $400 can be put on the table.
With all the talk on A-lens vs zooming, just wanted to recheck OP.
There are a few famous zooming vs a-lens threads, as well as CIH vs CIW threads. Rehash them inside here?
IMO, with him sticking with exact same gear he has - slightly dated and such, if he can get an a-lens for $400 that will give him 25% more brightness than zooming.
That is great bang for buck!
All this talk of 4k pj is good stuff, but outta scope of the OP.
There are threads where that is covered, right?
A new bulb is another good one, but I'd guess he does that every 1500 hrs approx give/take already.
So it comes down to more brightness vs the darblet effect .
If he's lived with the brightness of zooming, and over the years came to accept that, then the darblet seems like a "new thing" to do.
Something to try out.....heck this thread put the darblet onto my radar, as a $400 tweak to my slightly dated Sony VW60 pj + UH380 current video side combo.
