There are also Panamorph lenses that go all the way from 4:3 to 2.35:1. No cancelling of the effects that way, though. Alan sold me his, but I won't be able to try it for a week or two on my SX21. I'm not sure if I'll keep it, but figured it would be fun to play around with. It does require a long throw from what I understand, though.
No, I just bought the projector and don't have it yet. The throw is OK for my theater (same as CRT) but it sounds like the anamorphic lenses may be an issue.
I am looking at the install as somewhat temporary with new technology in the 1080p range looking good within the fairly short future. With this in mind, I suppose it might make more sense to stick with a regular lense that can be in turn used to bump 16:9 to 2.35:1 in the future.
I tried to PM you back but your mail was full. I'll try again later.
