Well, I'm still dreaming about how to change my set up to front projection. Not planning to see this happen until year's end or as late as next summer though (hopefully when the Sanyo Z2 drops in price for its successor). My room, not being a dedicated room per se, has a couple challenges. The first is no surface on which to project. Wall areas are broken up by windows or entry ways, so I can't just shoot on a wall and naturally I can't mount anything. The most convenient way to change things over, without having to do too much re-running of speaker wire and rearrangement of components is to turn the viewing area 180 degrees. This solves many problems, but still leaves where to put the screen. I've looked at various portable products like the Da-Lite InstaTheater and Draper RoadWarrior. Each can be had for about 400.00, which is spendy considering the savings had by DIY or even just buying sheets of matte white foamcore or similar product. Again, how to mount or suspend it? Well, I ran across this. As an amateur photographer it will serve its intended purpose PLUS allow me to hang the material of choice (foamcore or even blackout fabric) from it. It also maintains the portability factor. Living on my own I'd more than likely leave it up 75% of the time because it has a sort of cool industrial quality to it. If I have guests over I can tear it down and have a living room again. EDIT: The set up and tear down factor might be seen as an inconvenience to some, but I also have fond memories of my dad breaking out the 8mm projector and screen for the family to watch home movies. I've also always wanted to take advantage of the size of my living room and do some actual studio photography in it. The expense is definitely seen as more of a long term investment.
