It is true. Cylindrical lenses are better because they allow the optics to be adjusted to allow both horizontal and vertical lines to be brought into focus at the same time. Prisms are limited in that they can only focus one plain at one time, so you end up fudging the focus between H and V. Correction elements help here but are not as good as true cylindrical lenses.

Big problemo for these gents will be that they will be forced to change their company name to CILINDROSONIC or something of that stretch.
I said the same thing when I first heard their move from prisms to cylindrical lenses.
I love how "some" are claiming those renders to be real. Yeah right

Rotolosonico in Italian maybe?
Wait! Got it: ROTOLOSCOPE
All royalties for the name are to be sent to erwinbel so he can invest in more toys...

HD6000R looks appealing though with the Panny in the rendering. Cool CB500 ceiling mount too.

It's Dutch... a millenium or so old spinn-off from German.

I was advized today that the BenQ W6000 would be better for my desired hughe screen. More lumens. It's also cheaper in EU vs the Panasonic, unlike the USA situation.
And at 2500 lumens, it is a light cannon! I just wish they had not changed the chassis from the W5000.

Ah, the Prismasonic is from Finland:

http://www.prismasonic.com/english/index.shtml

Prices start at €990, shipping to EU is €40
This is EU, hence no VAT and duties added within EU (were already in)
EDIT: PRICES ARE WITHOUT VAT: 23% for EU

Prismasonic H 850 M

Is this any good to use with the Panasonic AE4000?

http://www.highendpassion.nl/epages/...H%20850%20M%22

It's affordable +/- Ä1,000
Better buys out there?

That is ridiculously priced but it is good because hopefully that feature will start showing up in affordable units.

I remember when 720p projectors were crazy expensive.

Thanks for sharing the link!

I am still holding out hope for a native 2.35:1 PJ. Probably won't happen, but I can dream.
Well, there's the new avielo Optix Superwide 235 with native 2.40/1
They are very secretive about the price, but I read a guestimate of something like 20K...

Press release:
http://www.avielo.com/pdf/optix%20Su...0cedia2010.pdf

Fingers crossed for a more affordable attempt. I would pay 5K, since a commercial anamorphic lens will cost 2-3K, without a projector like the Pana 4000.

I have a pulldown graywolf 106"

I have wanted to build a 2.35:1 screen but not that keen on an external lens.
I read that if you don't want/can get an external lens... you can use the zoom of the PJ

Like I said, I'm doing some research for the future, currently I'm using a 67" DLP TV, but I hope some day to get a PJ and screen
