I hate to be the bearer of either false hopes or gloomy predictions, so be advise that these are all "what if's" and "might be's".
Rainbow Effects are both subject to a Viewer's sensitivity to light strobing introduced by the color wheel. Faster speed wheels (5x) and those with more segements have less potential to produce RBE....but it's still there.
.....and, Content. How it's provided and at what Frame Sequence it comes over at....all can make SDE be consipcuolusly absent...or in your face. Seating Position can add a degree of enhancement.
Yes...you might be a hyper sensitive type to SDE....or just someone who see it on occasion, when the move their head quickly enough to catch up with the Frame rate for a fraction of a second.
Point being....theres no effective way to judge your true sensitivity to RBE unless you have the opportunity to view alot of varied content. Or....it hits you so hard at the beginning you throw up. That'll convince 'em every time.
No really...for some it just takes them a little bit of RBE and they get dizzy...nausious. Hmmmm...just like some people do when watching Shutter Glass 3D, or poor Passive 3D(...far less frequent)
Soooo...do I hate DLPs or sumpthin'. Not at all. Some of my best work was/is with DLPs. But certain limitations must be made apparent...leastwise as far as how I handle such, and if performance and cost outwheighs the risks.....and if one doesn't go bobbing his head like a dope all the time trying to "catch" a Rainbow, I don't hear much in the way of complaing these days with 1080p resolution, mega better contrast specifications, and higher speed Color Wheels, better Optics, insanely better Image Processing........well, it pretty much boils down to this;
If you chose a decent DLP with good features and specs, and can preview it adaquately, it should become apparent quickly enough to allow you to make a informed decision.
.............be done with all the indecision, get a Epson 6010 and fly away....fly away....fly away....fly away....fly away....fly away....fly away.............................
