I just got my Z2 delivered, wasnt really that impressed at first but then I was projecting it on a yellow wall using a portable DVD svhs output. Anyway, was looking for some tweaks that have worked for users of this PJ. I have found so far that closing the iris and setting gamma to about +4 works. What I am unsure about is what the screen mode should be? Should this be permanantely set to Normal, Normal through or full? Keeping in mind all my sources are widescreen.

Any help appreciated!

I own my Z2 since nearly a year now and here are your answers :

If your sources are anamorphic widescreen you should be on FULL.

If your sources are non-anamorphic widescreen you should be on ZOOM.

If your sources are standard 4:3 you can be on Natural wide or Normal (if you do not want to stretch the 4:3 picture).

These are the 4 setins you will use, all the others have no interest at all (IMO).
