Hey g-man5.1,

Thanks a lot for the compliment.

I haven't even had a chance to look at the "reference" titles yet on Blu-ray, but what I have seen so far has been very pleasing!

And also let me say that I am really enjoying both Blu-ray and HD DVD!

Here are a couple more. Panny DMP-BD10 1080i -> NEC XG750 CRT projector on a 100" diagonal screen.

The Transporter:

Both of those shots are from Fantastic 4.

I now see why Open Season is Tear 0! Very nice!


I am looking forward to seeing what Cars looks like on Blu-ray.

Incredible shots, Bradad! I love the color and clarity. So far, I've been unable to take any decent looking shots with my digital camera. Are there preferred camera settings to use? Of course, I'm just using an old Toshiba 4.3meg camera.

Yeah I wanted to know that too.

I have 6.1 kodak that is about two or three years old, and I cannot get a pic out of it.

Can you guys give us noobs some settings to set manually?

Hello and thank you!

You can see info about my camera and settings here:

One other thing,

When/if you resize your images, make sure that you retain the maximum quality settings when you save your file. Some programs might compress the image when you save it (a possible default setting) and therefore degrade it.

Most LCDs crush black somewhat......it's a limitation of the technology.

well, I believe the PS3 didn't pass blacker than black, so blacks are a bit crushed and I believe a PS3 is what most people are using as a BD player.

I am using a PS3 and my blacks are nowhere near that crushed... but I was just asking if it was the display or the camera... sometimes the camera makes stuff look "worse" than it is.

It may be a bit of the display but more due to the camera. I study photography and cameras, film or digital, aren't capable of capturing the entire exposure spectrum that the human eye can see, etc. So, when your camera takes a picture, most of the time on automatic it has to guess or estimate what the "best" exposure value is and in high contrast subjects that can mean a picture that gets the bright areas of the scene exposed correctly but the dark areas underexposed/crushed, or the bright areas overexposed while the shadows' detail remains intact.

The latest Sharp Aquos launched only in Japan delivers the best black level performance of any non-CRT TV I have seen.

Looks pretty good for DVD. Like one of the other posters has stated, that movie does seem to be real soft. If I remember correctly it is almost like they shot it through some filter - like the old pornos J/k
