Default Anyone have a 3010 epson projectorb& a 2:35:1 screen?

I'm trying to decide btw a 2:35:1 screen & 16:9 screen but it appears that if I got a 2:35:1 screen this projector wouldn't have the ability to display it in that format.

I have Avengers on right now on the wall but the projector has it in a 16:9 format instead of the 2:35:1 format it should display in.

Anyone know anything about the ability for this projector to display in 2:35:1?

Thank you

Avengers is 1.85 afaik, it fills my screen at least.

No projector that I know of has a native 2.35 panel, the 3010 will display 2.35 the same as any other projector, with black bars. Now it will likely also stretch that image to fill its 1.78 panel, but then you would need an anamorphic lens to stretch that picture out to 2.35.

The Avengers ratio is 1.78:1.
The 3010 can fill a 2.35:1 screen. You will just have to zoom the image and project the black bar outside of the screen.
Adopted Blu-ray long before its development and launch.

What are you going to use the projector for? If youíre going to watch pretty much only movies then the 2.35 is the way to go. If you plan to use your projector for everything all the time go 16.9. I went 2.35 and have no regrets yet.

You'll have to zoom the image in order to make it fit the screen.

That can get bothersome after a while since that projector has a manual zoom.

I did it manually for 5 years (Insert blue joke here) with my Panasonic PT-AX100u and did indeed get tired of it, so tired of it I went 1.78 when I had the chance to remodel my theatre. In my experience 2.35 screens are worth the effort when you have more width than height, if you have more height than width and decide to go 2.35 than you are missing out on movies like Avengers or any other < 2.35 content.
