So I re-watched Expendables 3 at the scenes where the banding happened and sure enough it's pretty bad. I took a couple shots. Dark/normal taken with f2.8 aperture and 1/8 shutter and brighter with programmed auto to highlight how bad it is. The shot where Ross is blown off the bridge is really bad. It's so bad that I expect the studio will need to publish a newer version IMO. I'm going to contact them to see if they plan on fixing these scenes.

Times below are for theatrical release.

The scene below (01:11:19) is as bad as it looks here.


At around 01:11:51 Banding really prominent over HIS left shoulder especially during motion, i.e., still doesn't do justice.

I'm currently in search for the exact sized screen and i found the perfect matchup so i'd figure to share the info!

Silver Ticket 115" Diagonal 2.35:1 Cinema Format (6 Piece Fixed Frame) Projector Screen White Material *also comes in cinagrey, ambient light, & acoustic woven versions*


*Here's the model # for the mattwhite 115" STR-235115*

A great review of this screen brand was written via the Wire Cutter that should give you extra information you might need. Since i'm new I sadly cant give you direct links

Has anyone tried a Darbee Darblet with the Panasonic 8000 for any length of time?

Thoughts?

They are only $200 right now. I've considered buying one. The Christmas sale might be enough to make me jump.

I have one for my 8000 and love it. I was considering getting another one while they are on sale, but I'm holding out to see what the next model brings and then use the older one on another TV instead and put the new one on the Panny 8000.

I have had mine for 6 months or so and it adds a noticeable improvement on my 125" screen. I purchased an open box unit for $250 and felt it was worth it...$200 + shipping for a new unit is a great deal.

I'm still debating if I should go for the oppo 103d to hit two birds...but not entirely convinced about the bd player benefits.

My concern was about any handshake issues with darbee separate in the chain with some pj's. Any for you?
