We like what we like, have different opinions and preference so we let the pictures speak, and yes I think you need to retake some shots MP. But you see that yourselves. CRT have its unique charm, I think its best we let it be like that.
If we think logic, if you are used to CRT you don't know how HD shall look on it, because of the resolution problem caused by the lenses that only manages 50% MTF MAX then if you use the whole lens even in 720P the same. This you know. And normal on a 9" is about 20-30%MTF We talk 50-70% more MTF on digital Projectors today with higher Ansicontrast, high or higher ON/OFF contrast, and much brighter images. More correct colors, try saturation sweeps on your machine and send it up here.
Jonny you calibrated a hole bunch of CRTs how was the result? Then up to HDTV D65. I remember my 808 managed well D65 with the colored cooler stuff. Red and green.
Not that a CRT cant manage the signal 1080P because it does fine also higher. But have big issues with the lenses, therefore you know the result. And pictures will never ever show your or mine projector, then how it is in on screen.
CRT is soft yes, and softens out the HD, but that is why you guys still love it, does it matter? . Artifacts is covered, grain covered, scan lines almost invisible if you don't do things correct, sharpness artifacts not visible and so on . On my CRT you could see scan lines in 1080P great 50 cm from screen. But I wanted my Barco as sharp as possible. some don't like it that sharp. "Also got smother in 72Hz"
Some like oversaturated colors, some like black crush. Some like the mom, and some like the grandma. Nothing is wrong!.
Everybody enjoy film this weekend
