Samsung SP-A600 Projector Review
SP-A600 Lens Throw
The manual lens is a bit less limited than most DLP projectors. Still, it is only a 1.3:1 zoom ratio, which is close to the 1.2:1 ratio that is typical of DLP home theater projectors.
This doesn’t give you much placement flexibility. For a 100 inch, 16:9 aspect ratio screen, you can place the projector (measured from front of lens) as close as 11 feet, 1 inch, and as far back as 14 feet, 5 inches. That’s a workable range for ceiling mounting, and nicely goes back far enough that the projector can be mounted behind the audience in many rooms, depending on how far back you like to sit.
SP-A600 Lens Shift
The SP-A600 lacks any adjustable lens shift. The offset ratio is 125% (I’m working from preliminary specs). That will place the center of the lens approximately 12 inches above the top of the screen surface when ceiling mounting.
SP-A600 Anamorphic Lens
Samsung does not support an anamorphic lens for this projector. Keep in mind, this is a low cost 1080p projector. Personally, I don’t think it makes sense to pair a multi-thousand dollar anamorphic lens and sled system to an under $2000 projector. My take is that you would definitely want to spend for a higher quality, typically “ultra-high” contrast projector, for the extra performance, before plunking down for an anamorphic solution.
