5.6" HD lcd screen

Hi there guys

Kind of a noobish question I have one of thiese

http://www.consoleplus.co.uk/product_info.php?pName=high-resolution-ps2-56-tft-colour-screen

It's a 5.6" TFT High Definition screen for the Ps2 with it's own RCA inputs
I was going to go the OHP route and put this on it untill i get hold of a 15" LCD screen

Do you think I would be better off building a custom set up for it
Or just leave it alone and wait for the 15" lcd to come along

I have the 5.6" and OHP already what sort or results should i expect IF i put the 2 together

Thanks for your time .....love the big screen

Well i got an OHP for $30 and slaped on the 5" lcd got a screen size of 93cm in a small room .

The picture quality was good even with lights on

a few pics of it

An externally hosted image should be here but it was not working when we last tested it.

small LCD on OHP

The problem is that an OHP has a lighting system designed to spread the light evenly over a 10.5" by 10.5" area. If you use a 5.25" by 5.25" LCD, then only 1/4 of the light is used. (Your LCD is even smaller than this.) So you will get a pretty dim image.

If you build a custom projector, then you could direct more of the light into the LCD. Or you might be able to accomplish the same thing by adding another condensor lens just after the lamp.

The problem with using a 15" LCD on an OHP, is that the sides (12" wide) get cut off. Again, a custom projector does better.
 
I don’t think that the size of the lcd alone has anything to do with to with the brightness of the projected image. From a given distance, a 6 in. lcd will project a picture equally bright as 15 in. will do, but smaller in size (a lot smaller, actually).
Yes, a strong condenser will boost the brightness, allowing for a larger projection from a greater distance, but with low res panels, bigger is never better (IMO).
For the dim pictures I tend to blame the camera. Kodak CX6200 is by far not the best camera for taking screenshots, as it has virtually no manual overrides. 1/8 shutter and F4.5 will yield a pretty dim picture; add iso 200 for a lot of noise and the result you’ll see above.

I think you missed Guy's point. Look at the picture of his stage. Lots of light is being put onto his cardboard or whatever he has around the lcd. This is clearly wasted because its blocked.

Guy was saying to use a condenser to "bend in" this light so that it goes through the LCD.
