After hearing your frustrations over using independent shutters in the Imager projector, we decided you needed a dedicated shutter projector!
The DP2.1 has four shutter blades integrated within the projector to cut and hold perfect four-sided shapes. This is yet another invaluable and exclusive system for any dedolight user's style of production, but especially a must-have tool for tabletop work. The DP2.1 dedicated shutter projector fits at the accessory slot of all M size dedolight focusing head units. This projector allows users the ability to light something as small as a match head, or a razor thin line, without losing any color and keeping perfect resolution of shapes and edges. To shop for your own lens set, or if you already have a lens, look for the DP2.1.0 version with only the shutter projector and no lens.
If you are stuck using low-resolution imagers which created chromatic aberrations, you'll want to try this projection system to know your alternatives. Quite frankly, there is no comparison; nothing can do what dedolight projectors can do.
NOTE: This model does NOT come with a lens. It will work with older dedolight M or S Size projector lenses if you are upgrading, or if you want to build your own lens set starting with only the projector.

Razor sharp edging. If you want to make your shape in perfect focus, you can. This is perfect light, and perfect shadow where you want it.
Perfect Light & Shadow
No chromatic aberrations! Unlike every other light projector, you get clean light around every in-focus edge. No need to pull soft focus to get around poor light quality.
Easily pull lens for soft focus, or use the DPEYESET for edge softening. With this control, you can light a subject as small as a match head, and everything on up.
Install the projector in seconds by simply sliding it to the accessory slot (ex: barn door). No bolting, screwing or tools needed for this.
Cut your set-up time down immeasurably by controlling light and shadow with laser-like accuracy in seconds.
Use the lens tightening knob to quickly change the lens for image scaling:
Dedolight has always been committed to making the finest tools for shaping light. That means you have perfect, homogenous light where you want it, and absolute shadow where you want it. Most imaging projectors, be they gobos, Irises or shutters, cannot seem to get past nasty chromatic aberrations surrounding edges and warping the light beam. In this regard they also cannot cut perfect resolution of shape edges.
This is where the Dedolight projection system excels: if perfect homogenous light up to your edges is something you've wanted, then this is that system. If absolute resolution and focussing of your shape is something you've wanted, then this is that system. If you want to get rid of power tools to put your imager on your light head, then this is that system. What this all brings is the amount of flexibility needed to achieve your creative vision with the least amount of time, space and gripping all while reaching the highest quality available on the market. Seems like a no-brainer, and once you see it for yourself we doubt you'll disagree.
