Of the 4 listed the Panasonic is the only one that has the auto aspect ratio zoom (very nice feature) I own it and could not be happier. Using a 2,35:1 screen you get the best of both worlds. Most movies are now in 2,35:1 aspect ratio so thats a big deal.

No problem, If you watch alot of HD television shows on your display a 1'85:1 aspect ratio is used or what you know as 16x9. Most movies these days are shot so that they use a 2'35:1 aspect meaning that viewing on your normal display you have black bars on the top and bottom of the video. What the Panasonic does is it automatically detects this and puts black masking on the black parts and zooms out so if you have a true 2'35:1 screen and you fill the entire screen with video no black bars. You do need to set this up once and save it as a memory.

Dose this help?

The Panasonic will do great for your application if most of your viewing is movies. If you have a true 2'35:1 screen you will then have black bars on the sides of the TV images (16x9 video) instead of the top and bottom. In my opinion alot less bothersome.

There is one way but you need to buy or build an Anamorphic lenz there is a whole discussion thread going here about that.
