i still want to say the extra modes of transformers were awesome... the hud and the downloadable gps/health bar mode were very sweet. in terms of extras this is by far the best movie so far.

Are the skin tones orange in this film? I am not being a smart alec because in many movies they are. There are two colors above for the flesh tones. One is what I call Hollywood Orange, the other Normal Flesh Tone. Which is the correct one for this film when you look at it?

Both. Some scenes, not predominant however, present in a very unreal goldish kind of flesh tone. I don't care for it.

I'm glad you brought that up. My Mits DLP does a great job in color rendition except when it gets to what you refer to as "Hollywood orange." On my TV, this movie and others, Transporter II comes to mind, have in certain scenes an unreal gold cast. i though it was me or my TV. In fact I was tweaking colors this AM because of it. So I take it this is a widespread phenomena? If so it doesn't do it for me.

Some days it's hardly worth chewing through the restraints.

Just got done calibrating color temp and gamma in addition to the normal calibration of brightness, contrast, etc on my Hitachi projector and skin tones on Megan in the classroom scene are more natural to her tan than the orangish picture above.

Actually , if you read any of the reviews they all state that skin tones are orangeish, it was intentional. Also, my Sanyo Z5 PJ is ISF calibrated and yes, the skin tones have an orange tint.

I'm not questioning the color scheme. But is your Z5 pic as orange as that eighth picture down in that particular scene? Almost bought that pj btw.

I looked at those two shots of the hottie.. the one that looks orange is closer to what I see on my screen, the shot of her with the hood open and pink/normal fleshtones is way off the mark. I saw it inthe cinema as well and they had very orange tones to some of the scenes.
Of course maybe my ISF dude doesn't know what he's doing

What display did you end up getting? The Z5 is really a fantastic PJ especially for the money and even better when ISF'd.

I got the PJ-TX200 (Europe/Japan) version of the HDPJ52 from someone upgrading. Couldn't be happier with the performance compared to my old Sanyo Z2. Love movies like this on a giant screen, the neighbors don't.

My display is VIDEO Calibrated via DVE HD DVD ...

1) Pluge Test Screen for Brightness
2) BLUE Filter w/NTSC Color Test Screens for Color & Tint

I checked the Video Calibration w/BLUE filter a few days before my Friday NITE HD DVD presentation, and no changes were required!

Keep in mind that what you see is about approx. 75% PQ (color & sharpness) vs. the actual 1080p image from my inexpensive Canon A550 7.1MP digital camera. The PQ is far superior to what you see in these images if you were in my 20' x 30' HT/family room.

Like others have mentioned, ... the orange tint, (though somewhat more intense in these pic's) is what we saw & representitive to Michael Bay's style @ the DLP Century Cinema

For REFERENCE, ... here's some digital images screen captures from HD DVD Disc 2 ...

DISPLAY: 62" Toshiba 62HM196 1080p HDTV
CAMERA: Canon A550 7.1MP on a Tripod / Distant approx. 10'
................Flash = OFF
................Manual Mode / ISO 100 / F-Stop variable between -1/3 to -1

Nice pics.

On a related note...is there a guide or tutorial anywhere that would show me how to take digital images of HD-DVD screens?

I have a rather basic digital camera (Canon Powershot 520) and pretty much have it set to AUTO everything...for most pictures I take I just point and shoot and its good.

But when I have tried to take stills of images on my Vizio LCD..they never come out good at all...Either washed out...too dark....see the flash, etc

Is there a specific way I should set up the room (lighting, etc) and the camera?

I really am a noob when it comes to photography.

Yeah, they are bit on the yellow/orange side. Probably to overemphasize Mikaela's tan
