I have been wanting to close down the Iris more and more lately in 3D, even on my big 1.1 gain AT screen From 18 ft throw distance. sometimes i feel the aperture being opened up all the way is just too much on the eye. I didn't feel this way the first night, I really wanted as much light as possible, but now after 63 hours of viewing i find myself toning things down a bit which i think will only help me down the road when the bulb does lose its brigthness, then I can open up the iris some more and the 3D level of brightness remains relatively the same hopefully for the first 5000-1000 hours by doing so. For example, I watched Alice in Wonderland 3D with my aperture set to -7 the whole time and never once did i think it was dim or had the urge to open up the iris beyond -5.
Here is what i found would work best on each source, and remember if you have a low gain screen like me or even lower gain, you may feel the need at first to blast the screen with as much light as possible, i would recommend that once you get used to the 3D picture to try and tone down the iris, you would be amaze at how much light you would still get in 3D at -5 or even -10.
So anyways here is what i have been doing (again this is totally a personal preference):
- Always pick 3D preset, even though you're engaging high lamp mode only to close down the iris. I say so because the 3D mode just produces the best and most vivid 3D experience
- Try these aperture settings for the different sources
*3D Blurays (from -5 to -10 , depending on movie)
*3D Gaming like BlackOps (set to -5)
*3D DirecTV (-10 as this really helps diminish the appearance of ghosting, do not go more then -5, unless the programming is really dim)
- Use Wide 1 for darker but vivid colors, or use standard (rec709) to get more "light" out of your picture and more natural but less vivid tones
- Always use B(3D) Gamma mode, the A mode just doesn't look good at all in 3D
- Leave Brigthness and Contrast at Zero like many others had suggested
- For more color saturation, boost color (this is totally a personal choice, i have it between 20 and 30)
- Set both Detail and Sharpness between 15-30
I can't say this enough, JVC really pulled out a rabbit with this projector for both 3D and 2D. Maybe i am not the most picky of viewers especially when compared to others here, but i am not blind. I know when something doesn't look right. This projector has me still excited like a little kid in a candy store, I still cannot believe that i can play 3D movies in this quality in my own theater, i really thought we were going to be at least a year or two away from having such a marvel of technology in our homes, forget the 3D flat panels thy instantly become a joke once you have your RS40/50/60 playing 3D blurays on our big home theater screens, the bigger the better if ycan soar the lumens.
So far every bluray movie i have seen (open season, bolt, alice in wonderland, and My Bloody Valentine) all showed no sgns of flicker to my eyes, and also no ghosting, if there were any ghosting, it must have been extremely minimal because i didn't catch it. But the DirecTV 3D programming does exhibit ghosting in varying degrees from th very obvious to the vey faint, and not all DirecTV 3D content shows ghosting, just some and primarily 3D Sports. And the documentaries that do show ghosting, only show is in 10-20% of the entire run time.
I will be back t work tomorrow, so not much to report in the day time. But i will check messages nd the the official thread periodically. Hope more of you get there RS40s soon this week.
