The picture from my RP DLP is pretty good too. I got it set to where the colors are pretty good... it's just awful in dark scenes though. I only use it to watch sports, SDTV, and 20 minutes of a movie while I eat though.

Try the CraigR mod, you'll find it improves the performance of your pic on your Mit. Still won't match your Marquee, but will get it a LOT closer.

What do you mean actually it's not, actually it's not what? Not a plazma or not for CRTs only. My guess is you're saying it's an LCD, right.

I agree, did you change something either in the greyscale or setting of the camera?

It must be the camera, White Balancing is a major PITA... Will try again!

Hi lordcloud,

Well this is the CRT section not the LCD or Plazma section, so typically if we want to see some LCD shots we would go to the LCD section! But I won't hijack the thread debating this silly point!

Digital shots are most welcome here... it's good to compare. Just because this thread is in CRT land doesn't mean we won't kill any of you digital guys (or will we? ).

If I may ask....how does the color look to you guys?
I used a special way of taking the picture...first I created a custom white balance from a 100IRE on the screen..then used that as the base white balance for the shot in the camera.
Your input please

Hey folks,

I want to become part of this thread. Hehehe!

Here are my screenshots this evening from my humble 1272 crt projector.

About to kill T-rex


Looks like I need to work on my blue


Aeon Flux


Resident Evil


Hiro's only love


Copycat's eye from Heroes. Camera is angled 45 degrees and 2 ft away from screen.


Another shot of Copycat


Same picture as the first but front shot


Save the cheerleader


hopefully guys, my screenshots are ok.

EDIT:

Looks like you guys are including what type of camera was used.
Camera is Canon S400. Light setting set to Auto. Effect set to Auto. 10 sec timer to minimize camera movement.

Thanks Cliff for the kind words.

Sonynut taught me a lot on the setup and calibration on my other threads.

Thread 1
Thread 2

Dropzone, screen is blockout cloth which will soon be replaced by Wilsonart DW.

Thanks again!

Nice! I used to have a blackout cloth screen and am now using the Wilsonart DW. What size is your screen?

The current physical dimension of the cloth is 120"x54". The projected images above are at 92"x52".

Okay, that makes sense. I was thinking that it looked to be about 96x54 which is the size I used to use. I'm using 108x61 now on the DW material and it's really too large for my XG but I like the size. Looks like you did a great job with convergence. I wish I could get my projector looking that nice. I think you are getting the max possible potential from your 1272 which looks really impressive from your shots.

Yep, Sonynut taught me a lot. He helped me so much with all the tweaks!
