I was also in attendance for the panamorph demonstration. It was really nice to meet RGB, Kirk and Man E. I have been reading theirs as well as others posts about the panamorph for many months and even though I don't also understand when things get too technical I seem to learn something. Now for my impressions. It was a little hard for me to see things as well as I had liked due to the room where the Panamorph was being used was a bit light. The one thing that I first noticed though, was that the image seemed smoother I presume from the tighter pixel structure which was readily noticed when I stood right next to the image and the Panamorph was moved back and forth in front of the projector. I know the image was supposed to be brighter with the panamorph but due to the room, I saw some improvement, but I couldn't really say how much. As for ease of use this lens seems very simple to use, adjust and install. I have a Seleco HT200 and it seems that it will be a breeze to use with this lens. Shawn was very easy to talk too and answered all my questions. I have no doubt that this lens will be produced and shipped. The Panamorph that was used to demonstrate was, according to Shawn, a customers and that he will begin shipping on Monday 7-23. Only when I get the Panamorph set up in my dark room with the 8 1/2 foot wide screen will I be able to properly judge it. Although I'm pretty confident that it will make a significant improvement.
