Are there any new sub-$2000 DLP projectors on the near-term horizon with true lens shift capability like the Panasonic 700U?
I would love to buy any one of the great new DLP projectors that have come out in the last 6 months or so, but NONE will work in my living room without huge keystone correction (I need to mount at screen level, 15 feet back). The least expensive projector I can buy that will work in my situation is the Panasonic 700U.
Given the huge popularity of the Panny 700, I would think some of the DLP manufacturers would take the hint and start building projectors with better zoom capabilities and a true lens shift like the Panny.
So is there any hope out there, or should I just go ahead buy the Panasonic now?
I believe the NEC 410 and 510 are both under $2000 and do have lens shift. I believe NEC has a patent on their lens shift method so they may be the only company with a good lens shift feature in this price range for the time being.
Thanks, I considered the NECs but they both have an extremely short throw range -- basically seem to be designed for coffee table use. Neither of these works from 16 feet back. Plus it's dissapointing that neither of these projectors has a DVI input.
