Could someone please point me to the formula for calculating the reflected light from the screen in a FPJ setup. I remember it's got something to do with PJ lumens, screen size and screen gain, but can't seem to find it anywhere.


TIA!

lumens * screen gain / screen size in sqft


for example


600 * 1.1 / (80 * 45 / 144) = 26.4


As for one step further and what ft-ls to shoot for. I haven't a clue. I know you don't want under 8 or 9, but I've heard good is 10-11, 16, or even as high as 20.
