Hi,



I can fit both 130" 2.35:1 screen as well as 135" 16:9 screen in my room.


The effective screen size of 2.35 movie projected onto 130" 2.35 screen is almost the same as 135" 16:9 screen. (in square inches 6088 vs 5888)


Furthermore it will alow me to buy Sony VP-HW55ES instead of having to buy PT-AE8000.

.

Is there any reason to go with 130" 2.35:1 screen instead of 135" 16:9?


As i have not sampled 2.35:1 ratio screen, does having blackbars "on screen" instead having them "above and below" destroys the viewing experience?


Regards

SMH

I have a 133" 2.35 and will never go 16:9 again. Movies feel absolutely awesome in 2.35. When watching 16:9 content the image is very large so the bars are not a problem at all.

Regarding this, if you have a 2.35:1, what type of anamorphic lens do you have and where did you purchase it from?

 

Is the 16:9 format stuff on the same screen (tv, gaming) and how does the projector flip back and forth between the two formats?  Is the height of the images the same, and the only thing changing is the width?

I use the zoom method where the projector zooms the image to fill the screen. TV and games are generally 16:9 and the some projectors will auto switch the images between 16:9 (1.78) and 2.35. Yes, the height is the same, but the width expands out (CIH).

I see, but then the image is distorted then for movies is that right?  Or do you use an anamorphic lens?  If so, which brand and where did you get it from?

You can either use an anamorphic lens like the Panamorph CineVista, or you can zoom. Zooming does not distort the picture. I use two screens - one 16:9, or 2.35:1 ( electric ) and I zoom larger or smaller whenever I change formats. Been doing it this way for 5 or 6 years. Either way works and has pros and cons.
