Default Why do Lumenlab projectos look so good!?!

is it they have better cameras?

or their lcds? they use 1024 lcds most of the time form liquid videeo / benq

and how do they get HD output? just down sampling it?

most users that built that projector are using 15" LCD with 450:1 contrast or higher.

high quality fresnels and triplet.

but yea, alot of them do have good quality camera's. it doesn't matter how good your projected image looks, if your camera sux then your pic will too.

also, there is TONS of information in the members section of the forums. this also helps in getting the great quality projected image.

It's totally worth it to join imo, sure I could have probably figured out everything without paying the $20, but I am lazy.

If you start out not knowing anything about this stuff like I did, it's so worth it. Plus everyone there is helpful. However, if you have the time to read all the threads here, you can probably piece enough info together to make a go of it on your own. Personally I found the Lumenlab private areas a very helpful resource that can get anyone up and running with a simple projector right away. Once you have that down, it's probably easy to take the next step with more complex designs. That's my own personal plan anyways.

The Lumenlab units look good because your looking at the same projector... over and over and over again. Everyone is using the EXACT same setup. So if you've seen one... you've seen them all Where as here and at other community sites people like to try different designs with different panels, bulbs, reflectors, focal lengths, distances etc.

BTW - This is my no means a shot at Lumenlabs. Theres nothing wrong with the simple projector. As seen by the pics. But donít think thereís a secret they arenít sharing.

Norpro is not a chrome mixing bowl, it's a very highly polished semi-hemispherical bowl that works really well with PJ's. The difference between the Norpro and the laddle is like day 'n' night.
