Hi.. I know this may be a strange question to ask.. but does anyone have any photos taken of an image projected using the AE100e in daylight,, or with ambient light???? I`ve heard mixed thoughts on how watchable the image will be with daylight or ambient light and would be very interested to see any photos that anyone may have?? Also with the economy mode and hi mode would be great too. I can`t find anywhere local to demo one of these projectors so photos and owners opinions will have to do. Its not primarily gonna be used in the day, but I want to ditch my tv altogether and just use the projector.


thanks very much for any help

Kind Regards

Sam

2 words: It's not!


You won't be able to ditch the TV unless you can almost completely darken the room.

Yeah, the only reason I am considering ditching my TV if I get an AE100 is because I can achieve total darkness in my room.

Could it just be distortion caused by a wide-angle lens?

Not on my monitor it isn't, something up with your PC?

The image is clearly elongated, but I thought it was just from showing a 4:3 image in JUST 16-9 mode, one of the features of the AE. I don't see enough of the clock to see if the picture has been otherwise altered.


As far as the picture goes that is an accurate representation of the AE with ambient light that does not directly reflect on the screen. Not really watchable but brighter than its lumen rating would indicate.

The picture has not been elongated at all, just a straight snapshot of a 4x3 program in full mode. The screen is a 52"x92" HDTV Model B from DaLite. I took the picture and uploaded it to AVS, not altering at all.
