I have that Panasonic projector which is installed about 20" from the ceiling. It projects the image on a 92" diagonal (16:9) screen (tension fixed).
The projection distance is less than 5m.
To center the image on the screen, I had to use the lens shift to the max allowed (bottom-left).
For some reason, I cannot get a focused image. The text is too blurred.
I noticed that if I center the lens shift, the desired focus is achieved but the image is projected way too high and to the left so it's not a solution.
Please let me know if this is a problem with the projector or if I should change something else.

I am a newbie so forgive me if this is not correctly asked or if it has already been discussed as I could not find it in the search area. I currently own a Panasonic AE900U and just purchased a AE8000U to find that my current universal ceiling mount will not fit the AE8000U. My question is, should it fit? I can only get 3 of the 4 mounts to line up. I assume I will need to purchase a new mounting kit. The manual states that this unit requires Panasonic OEM mount which is almost $500. I am not willing to spend anywhere near that amount for a mount. Can someone please send me a recommendation on a good universal mount that will work for my new projector. I need a mount that will suspend the projector down 18"? Any help would be deeply appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks very much for the feedback. The Sony seems to be around AUD$4300 here compared to about $4500 for the Epson. I have noticed the Panasonic PT AE8000 is a bit cheaper these days. How it compare to the Epson and the Sony?

Hi there! I am a little confused about the "Search by Feature" as well as the Calculator Pro pages, and want to make sure I'm interpreting this correctly.
I have a sort of specific use -- it is going to be used for a video in a museum exhibit. The space it will be going in is 12.5 feet from the wall being projected on, and we need the image size to be 68" wide. When I plug these two needs into the search by feature, the product I specified comes up. Then when I use the calculator pro and I set the picture width to 68", the throw distance says 10'2. The shaded blue area, though, spans from roughly 15' to 7'. Does this mean that i'll have to adjust the keystone in order to make the picture 68" at 12.5'?
My concern fueling this post is because I own a projector and when I adjusted the keystone, the remaining area that the projector is able to project to contains some residual light. The light is dark, but definitely visible. Not wanting this same issue here at work in the exhibit, I'm trying to avoid it as much as possible! I have attached an image to illustrate the residual light issue.
Any insight is greatly appreciated.

I'd like to hop on this thread. I'm looking for a projector that can handle a 28' throw distance, and produce an image with a 138" diagonal in a fairly dark room (living room at night).
The folks at projectorpeople.com suggested the Panasonic PT-AE8000U for $1700, but it just so happens that they're running a special on that machine right now, which kind of made me wonder... Especially as the Calculator at Projector Central doesn't give it good marks for the desired distance.
Could the Panasonic do it? Is it too much muscle? Not enough? Can anyone suggest some alternatives?
Many thanks for any guidance you can offer!
