Then I came across Mark's Aussiemorphic lens, and for the first time it looked liked it would be possible to have an anamorphic lens..


Believe me...If I can afford it...anyone can..
Hi Prof, Im interested in looking into doing this sometime down the road but have a few questions. Where do you get this lens you speak of, I went to the link but dont see a price or place to buy it.
Also will it work on any projector? I just have a Sanyo Z2.

When you say affordable what do you mean by this as thats a relative word when dealing with little to no budget.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Tony, I bought my lens from Mark Techer, who is the maker of the Aussiemorphic lens..this link should give you all the info. you need

Shouldn't be a problem..Mark's lens works on just about all projectors..

Well I bought the Mk.1 lens and it cost less than $400AUD...the Mk.11 is a little dearer, but it now comes with coated optics and a slide mount..

BUT...you can even do it for a lot less if you're prepared to make up your own lens, by just buying a couple of prisms and assembling them into a case..

I would suggest sending a pm to Mark and ask him about how to get hold of some prisms...
You might like to click on this link as well...http://cavx.blogspot.com/2008/01/b-s...-for-sale.html..

When you are ready to set up for CIH projection and assembling the lens, Mark will give you all the help you need to correctly set up the lens...

Prof, I'm not familiar with the Sanyo Z2, but if it doesn't do the vertical stretch to the image, then a scaler would also be needed, correct?




We're all in this together!

Mike, the Z2 probably doesn't have vertical stretch, in which case he will need an external scaler if he's playing HD DVD's..
If it's ony SD DVD's, then just an upscaling player with a VS facility is all that's needed..

I'm sure that the Z2 does work for SD, but may not work for HD. I have started a thread on using a HTPC with a program called YXY, which is how I got around the VS issues for HD on my system...

I just wanted to add my recommendation for Mark's product. By all reports it's fabulous for the price, and I think he needs to be congratulated for providing us with a cheaper option to those other ridiculous prices.

Thankyou John. I only hope that I can continue in the future with the upcoming developments to Aussiemorphic Lens including the MKIII by keeping the pricing real...
