Any one know if I can get a lens type filter for my Acer 5380 PJ for a longer throw so I can move my projector to the back of my room? As I move it back the screen gets bigger than I want. Is there such a lens? I hope you understand. Thanks!

I've seen videos of people using a $50-80 camera zoom lens to create a larger image from closer. I'd have to believe you could do the opposite with a similar workaround for a small amount of money.
Check around for something like a 2X telephoto lens (unless I'm a dunce and that's the opposite type of lens...I don't know words).

Thanks Air, Yikes. I guess when I upgrade in a couple of years I will get one with a long throw.
Yes, just goes to show you how low quality the lenses in the projectors are these days.. New projector costs less than a quality lens. This is one of the ways they have lowered the prices, cheap plastic lenses.. high end stuff has better lenses..
