On the Projector Central website.... within the projection calculator they seem to always list a measured range to match up to a particular diagonal size.


Lets say for example...using the Sony HS10....which I assume will be the same for the HS20.....the range for a 86-inch 16x9 screen is 10.5 feet thru 13.3 feet.


What are the benefits of being smack dab in the middle of the range ?


Would someone with 10.5 feet of throw distance be able to show a good picture at an 86-inch 16x9 diagonal....even though he is at the low end of the range ?


Must this person pick a smaller screen ?

Theories abound.


Why not try a little practice?

Well, the longer the throw the more direct the angle of light is at the edges of the screen. I suspect that is important for the viewing cone (if you have a gained screen).


But then again, small theaters/rooms sometimes want the biggest picture possible, so they need short throw settings


Just my $0.02 ;^)

Someone else put forth the thought that the more wide open the lens is the more light that passes through the lens. I was just wondering about that. I am thinking I would like to be to the closer end of the zoom out. I will never have the need to zoom out more because the screen will be maxed out but could always go smaller.
