Clarence always has insane pics! Nice pics for everyone else too! Let's keep this thread going and remember to try and not have pictures in our quotes.....I've seen it get out of hand in other threads.

Any votes for a sticky?

I posted some of my Blu Ray shots with comparisons to SD DVD on the BR thread

so Here's a SD vs HD DVD from King Kong

SD DVD


HD DVD


The SD DVD via HDMI Pio DV-490V Upconverting Player set @ 1080i
HD DVD via component XBOX 360 HD DVD add-on @ 1080i,

final display is 1365x768 50" plasma

4.1 mp digi photos completely untouched by photoshop other than
cropped, down rez'd and down scaled for web upload

My First Home Theater
...When a Kuro plasma still isnt enough, make your movie Experience Larger than Life with a Projector!

I personally don't like Stickies... if a thread topic is interesting and active, it stays on the top page on its own.

I tend to overlook the Stickies and skip down to the normal, unread threads.

Sometimes, though when there's a lot of people posting in the forum threads like this can get lost in the woodwork......I think it would be easier to find if it just remains a sticky, at least for awhile anyway.

What are all your guy's methods for taking pictures? What I do is set the camera on a tripod, with 2 second delay and flash off......I've also heard that enabling night photo mode makes it look better, is this correct?

Tripod, flash off, and 2 sec or 10 sec self-timer delay are essential. You don't need night mode.

Other things that will help:

Lowest possible ISO setting. My camera has ISO/ASA 50. ISO 50 will require 4x as much exposure time as the standard ISO 200, but will have much less noise (aka film grain or the digital equivalent). Experiment with Manual mode (or Tv: Time Value mode) and try exposure times of .6 and .8 seconds (thus a tripod is useful).

Don't use zoom. Set the tripod at about your normal sitting distance. Crop out the black area around the picture if necessary, but if you zoom, you'll get a curves instead of straight edges.

What would be nice is to have some detail shots. It really doesn't do HD-DVD justice with these 800x600ish pics of the whole screen.

Pick 1/16th of the screen (1/4th horizontal and vertical) that has something good going on and give us a picture of that.

I'll try to do some later, but I am sure to be bested since I only have a 720p projector.

Well I'm sure once we get some hq screenshots from any of the "adult" HDVD releases - the mods will have no choice but to make this thread sticky.


teehee.

If you're looking for HD comparisons over standard-def DVD, those have been done before, too. Here's a detailed section from my screenshot above of the general from Hulk on HD-DVD:

I may not be liked for this but here's Crank played on my PS3. I'd say it has the best PQ on both formats though I have not watched all of King Kong.

when you resize the pic in the photo editing software, adjust the DPI to 200 at a minimum, before actual resizing. This helps prevent loss of detail during the resize transition.

are you using a 720 projector?

42" RP LCD actually. Since you can't see the background the pictures have the allusion of being a massive screen
