Most new ht projectors use 120-130W bulbs. I think there should be an option available to go with a brigher bulb, perhaps 200W or so. This especially so since the auto-iris really is measuring up to what Sony is claiming.

What do you want?

1000 real ANSI lumens

1500 real ANSI lumen

2000 real ANSI lumen

For reference I am assuming hs51 can be made to perform at 600 ANSI lumen and 6000:1 with a color filter.

Now wait a dang second. I suggested taking a 4000 lumen and doing something to it to increase CR while not losing perceived brightness over the current crop of HT LCD's. What I would find really intriquing, though, is if Canon comes out in the Spring-Summer with a Sony-like dynamic iris for its LCoS. Can you imagine a 4000:1 CR LCoS for 2500 Lumens streeting for around $3500!?!

the Canon is gonna be a HUGE seller even at 1000 CR.


I may even scratch up the funds for one

Does Canon understand that we want that projector with an auto-iris? I think we are calling for too much wanting a 1080p panel in that case unless we are prepared to pay big bucks for it.


What do you prefer with a Canon ht version

1 1400x1050 2500 ANSI lumen

2 1400x768 masked down 2000 ANSI lumen

What should be powered? zoom and focus?


I would prefer the second option. I do not want to get into complications such as the use of an anamorphic lense is.

I'd take 1080p and 1000:1 over a 720p w auto iris any day all things beign equal.


Price could change this preference.


either way, I'm anxiously awaiting reviews

Is there a thing such as zoom anamorphic lens, perhaps 1.20:1 or so. I mean if I could have all the pixels I would take them.

With a dynamic iris of light modulation implemented like Sony is doing on the HS51, it would be extremely enticing to get, say, 3000:1 CR from the SXGA+ LCoS panels and have this street for $4K.
