Projectors Compared Round 2 -

Little explanation of how each photo was taken:
I tried to place the cutoff shield step near the center line for each picture. There are white pieces of paper at the base of the wall indicating 7ft increments. I've also created lines in photoshop to purely mark them. These are just points so you can gauge each picture and compare their properties. All of the shots were taken on a tripod at 25ft from the wall.

Each photo was taken in manual camera mode with the same setting. If one picture looks brighter or darker, that is a characteristic of the projector. With each photo being taken with the same properties, the camera will not adjust to make them all look the same as far as brightness etc. There are zero adjustments to color, contrast, brightness, sharpness etc in photoshop.

Bulbs Used:
H1 Bulb - generic 6000k ebay bulb
Generic D2S 6000k ebay bulb
Orasm D2S Bulb

Yeah, it really looked better in person. That pic doesn't really do it justice.
 
i just recently changed to 5k bulbs in my rx330s and love it, the old phillips d2 bulbs were getting old and lost brightness so this is a huge improvement

^that. Light output/aim is usually pretty poor on non-oem stuff.
