To : All happy users of AE 100


Just to contribute my own experience with this PJ.

Have only use it for 20 H but highly satisfied.


True that I have seen better CRT PJ in a HT shop demo room,

but it cost 6 - 7 times AE price.

Thus, not necessary at all to compare them.


Now, I would like to ask for advanced users of AE 100 about

the best type of screen for this PJ.


I feel it's too bright even in the low lamp setting, since my

viewing room is in total darkness.

A shop recommend negative gain grey screen (0.8), but in this

forum many users seems to use 1.2 to 1.4 gain screen.


Any idea.....?


Thanks

TKF

I use a DIY canvas screen painted light grey. I love it!

THF:


Without knowing what screen you are using at the moment, have you thought of an FL-D filter (I believe this was the model I have read around here)? This tends to bring the brightness down while at the same time addresses the screendoor issue somewhat. The filter however may require you to do a little tweaking of your picture as well to finetune things.

Hi Altaman,


I'm very new to AE100, just got it a week ago, currently

shooting at the white wall.


1. Will I get a dramatic improvement by using grayhawk ?


2. Is there any cheaper grey screen beside grayhawk


3. No plan to use filter, because a shop mention that I'll

lose some details & color.


4. Is negative gain screen a good option to reduce brightness,

and should it be grey or just simple white will do.


Thanks.:)

I started looking into photographic filters a bit on the weekend. What's the logic behind using an FL-D filter? Wouldn't a Neutral Density filter be a better choice?
