tried to look for a 300" wall last night & this is what I found around our factory, talk about portability  B)

here's a nonsense test done on a $5 tarp with different shades
Luckily the other side was a non-reflective surface which can be used in lieu of a white flat surface.

I really have no idea about this test but it seems that the yellow/ bright shade will be more view-able with the lights on although the dark shade area have more contrast, size about 75 inch

ordered from a tarp shop with different shades made in MS Paint


with Light ON


Lights OFF


Luckily the back is non reflective but they say reflective is much better


Lights ON


Light OFF, pictures are much better than the one taken from a cam phone

^ A good screen can make a huge difference in picture quality. I use a low gain screen at home, makes black levels and shadow detail much better even on my rather dated projector. When the lamp dies i'll probably get something like your XGIMI.


Test image shot in darkened room using Galaxy S4. Camera is terrible at low light shots, the gamma bars are actually discernible all the way through.

For your PJ i think low gain is also the way to go. Your max brightness is high enough that it won't be a problem getting good white levels even on a gray screen, and it'll make contrast and black levels better.

for the mean time I usually just use the wall that's painted like milky white & I place a pure white paper in between & you can really see the difference. What are those grain thing like 0.8 or 1.0?

anyways I had a chance to try this little thing outdoor last night since I came back to the factory late & not a lot people around
just wondered how it would look like on a huge wall though not totally dark coz of the street lamps, The Cc would be a little brighter if plugged in.
i guess the Cc was more than 10 meters away from the wall, not sure how big the screen is though.

^ Not 'grain', but gain, which tells you about the screen's brightness

1.0 will be a white wall
below 1 will be grey
above 1.0 will be a different material that's more reflective

Low gain screens can give you better black levels.

There are also ambient light rejecting screens where the material is designed to absorb or diffuse light coming in at an angle (ambient), while reflecting direct light (coming from projector). These can make for a good picture even if the room isn't dimmed.

Like so: (undarkened room, regular projector screen top half, ambient-light rejecting screen bottom).

so the ALR screens really work ha, I just got me a tarp & yesterday I got a white satin sheet & luckily the other side is not reflective, will give it a shot after I iron it out

meanwhile my wall will suffice  B)

just got those reflective cloth, first was the thick light gray one which is used for EWD on clothing which was delivered folded & the other was a little dark gray thinner material which was delivered rolled. The first was much heavier & thicker than the 2nd cloth. Yes the viewing angle is really small as can seen from the sample shots, some shots where taken at an angle around 30deg (estimate) while other shots where taken Head on. It seems the thick reflective cloth is more brighter than the other but not very much. got both in taobao here in china. oh how I wish I could put a Frame on these!
 
 can you imagine shining a 1200 Lumens on these, my eyes

it's as easy as turning it on then pointing it on a white wall - kung mga madalian na setup lang
pero kung dedicated AV-Room yan ibang usapan na yan ;)
