Ok - so I got the conema at home as good as I can without spending money - I think.
I have my anamorphic DVDs and am squishing them in the projector electronics.
Strikes me an anamorphic lens has got to be significantly better as the squishing will be after the ccd so all the pixels get used.
The only projector lenses I can find that are anamorphic are insanely priced things for pro cinema projectors.
Anyone heard of a cheap source - or know of a botch that works ?
