Harkness i must have got you mixed up with someone else.
My Bad.
You are right all have the right to speak there comments in threads,
there is freedom of speech unless you are Paster Terry Jones...lol

Like i said I if one leaves comments on screen shots in a negitive way like you have done,
Your Comments go alot further when you show a in living color example of a screen shot that is current.

And that beef harkness is not just directed at yourself but it is a statement in general.

enough Said,
Steve looking forward to more of your shots

I'm with you. For me, a good screen capture is about wow factor and has even been the decider when buying a film on BD. I would not buy any of the films he has used for screen cap because they do not impress me. If I didn't already own the same projector (BenQW5000) and know what it can do, I would not be keen to buy one either based on any of his screen shots.

Apparently this is his thread to 'test'. Exactly what his 'tests' will prove remains to be seen. If he wants to show noise (pretending it is film grain) why use DVD? Why not use laser disc or even VHS?

I am still confused what the experiment is or the difference.

I agree I would not even think of theis projector as a good one based on the screen captures.

No I have not posted screen captures of my projector as I have a cheap camera that would make anything look bad and I do not want that impression of my pj as it is a very good piece of equipment. That being said anyone that is into HT can tell the quality of the pictures presented.

No actually it's not.

What does he mean he is "looking at" genre, subject, photo and media quality? If he is just "looking" at those things, for some inscrutable reason of his own, he could look at the photos on his computer. Yet he's posting them on a public forum, so apparently he is inviting public comment. But what are we on the forum supposed to say about the images?

If we are to join in scrutinizing the "media and photo quality" then some of us have pointed out that they are very wanting in quality. What else are we supposed to be doing with this thread? If SteveMo doesn't want any scrutiny of his shots, why post them here? And if scrutiny is given, it's silly to call foul.

Fraisa,

I agree with Harkness. "Looking at" media quality is not spelled out.

I have a sub 4 megapixel digital and a camera on my phone. I do have a some very good still cameras and lenses, but have not made the jump. I listed this only because berated someone for not posting pictures. I said this because I too have not posted and I stated my reasons why.

So far there has been no talk by the OP about what the differences or what was or was not achieved from the different sessions. Just more and more photos.

I think we would all be better serviced if some additonal information was given by the OP if he is truely try to "look at" different aspects of HT add the impact it has on his HT.

"looking at" I have already defined here previously in my first screenshot thread. "looking at" means I am expecting in this thread to see that the screen photo is directly related to the recent subject or genre. This means if there is a new vampire movie hiting theaters this week, I might post shots from "Let The Right One In", or if for example I think a scene where someone might be at a table eating would be the subject of my post, that is what I post. Another might be color, If I want to look at different shots with similar colors, like red for example.

in other words, pure randomness
It does not change the fact that the blacks are washed in most of your shots.

It's page one, and the reason this convo started. You have now entered The Twilight Zone.

The projector is calibrated by a certified professional and the image taken by a certified graphic designer and trained photographer.

If you paid for these services, get your money back. Your BenQ W5000 looks as bad as they do out of the box.

These look much better but still look like they used DVD as the source.

I can't figure out why SteveMo's screen shots look so low-res.

Steve, are you in fact using HD/Blu-Ray sources? Or do you have a bunch of DVD sources in your screen shots as well?

I have posted five in this thread. You can see my Star Wars DVDs and the others I have in the photo. I have about twenty other DVDs and near 10 HD DVDs at my other home.

Here is a photo (using my Sigma DP2) of a movie that is 4 X more compressed than DVD.

i don't think there is any real purpose to this thread other than steve likes to post screenshots of his pj in action. many have ratted on him in the other screenshot thread as to why he continues and insists on posting more screenshots of his pj when there must be over 100 of them from him in that thread, all looking the same. if you ask me, thats his thing. no reason for it, just that its fun for him to do.

come on guys. This is Stevemo's thread, let him post what he sees fit to post. After all this is a public forum for people to post. Simple as that.

I know people see this thread as a good thing, as I will let the viewed times of this thread speak for itself. Views so far...3,863 [Not bad at all]
