OK, here's a pic from my lowly SP4805 and the HD-DVD add-on:
BTW, your monitor doesn't have a red pixel stuck. It's my camera's fault.
This shot wasn't altered except to crop and resize. The detail isn't great but I'm really pleased with how the picture turned out. Good color and a nice dramatic scene.
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a...
In your first one (from KK), I don't recall that angle nor the 03:07:00 on the wing (or is that a weird placement for the movie time marker?). I'll have to check that out again.
Nice exposure on the gray smoke in #4
thanks, I really like your screenshots!
but the first one shows of my small cramped room, as its a table in the way and thats why you see the numders on a strange place, they project on the table you see hehe.
I took 2 pictures of the smoke with 2 different settings, the one that looks best at home looked to dark on the picture so this is with the brighter setting.
I have now also screenshots of the DVD version of riddick, if you want to compare.
there is no doubt the HD-DVD is better overall but my denon 1930 has a depth or as I call it "airiness" to it that no other DVD has and it shows in the pictures. on the denon the background and foreground is very easy to tell apart, on hd-dvd you cant in the same way, its more in your face there.
all the pics here
These shots are taken with a Canon Ixy Digital 55. The picture is displayed from an Xbox360 HD-DVD player and fed to a Panasonic PT-AE900.
Sorry for the fuzziness on the HD-DVD shot - it appears a lot sharper in person - you can tell I have bit to learn about taking good film shots with this camera.
This is the comparison that I demonstrate when people visit and do not understand the concept of high-definition. I have both images on pause and flick between them so they can see the difference immediately. I point their eye towards the differences in detail and color in the background set and also the costumes of both performers. They are pretty vivid and have impressed every person I have shown.
Looks good man ! I have that projector and I really like the results.
Can't wait to be able to afford a 1080p though.
Agreed. I'm hanging out for a 1080p projector that has motorized zoom, shift and lens cover. I get sick of losing focus each time the PT-AE900's lens cover is replaced.
I hear reports that people don't see much difference between 720p and 1080p but I find that hard to believe. We're talking 6 times the amount of visual data over DVD not just 4 times. Have you seen any 1080p projectors in action?
I wanted to post some of my screen shots. Projector is JVC DLA-RS1 / Player is HD-A1. Camera is Olympus E-10 DSLR. I used Microsoft Picture Manager to resize and I'm only getting 96dpi. The images really don't do the RS-1 any justice. Any way I can get the DPI up to 200 when resizing? What is everyone else using to resize their screenshots?
Currently programming my Pronto TSU9600....I think I need some Tylenol.
