I don't know much about optics so I was wondering if someone could tell me if you could use this product in reverse.


This adapter allow you to capture a 16:9 image onto your 4:3 digital camcorder. Could you take this same lens (which I believe sells for around $700) and put it in front of your projector? It would be an awfully cheap alternative to an ISCO or Panamorph.

I think there are two problems, first the size of the lens would not allow it to work on projectors. The second biggest problem is light loss. Most of the other solutions I believe use curved mirrors where there is almost no light loss.
