Mornin'! 2 questions for this epic and long running thread.
Zombie, are you still (hopefully) at some point going to display in detail with photos taken up close to the screen what you were seeing with 1080P and 4K sources when comparing the Sony 1100ES and the JVC RS600? I know you showed what was happening with the micro posterization going on in tiny groups of detail, or rather obscuring detail, with the Sony. That was an eye opener and might explain a lot of the apparent "sharpness" of that projector from seating distances. Anyway, it's always a treat and awesome when you do those visual expositions with your screen grab camera skills and knowledge of what you're describing.
Secondly, what is it exactly about 3D that "with a pristine source" such as Pacific Rim ..... that looks soooo damn "clear
" and allowed me yesterday to sit less than 1 screen width back from my 2.8 HP 8'5" wide 16x9 screen?? I could never do that with a pristine source 2D bluray, either with this great iteration of eShift4 or with the razor sharp 1080P images I'm getting from my RS500, with my first experience with the newer even tinier pixel gaps. But my one limiting factor yesterday since my screen bottom is only 18" off the floor.... was my head starting to create a shadow. I think visually I might have been able to go another 1/2 foot closer or more. Which is one damn BIG 16x9 image. I have never waxed poetic as others do with movies and being drawn into them and losing myself in 2D in my theater. But with the absolutely clean images of that transfer and the tremendous 3D and things making their way out of the plane of the screen as well toward me, oh yeah Baby I was there. Could only imagine if seeing it for the first time. Same feeling a bit later under water with IMAX Under The Sea. It's like I was down there in the reef it was so "CLEAR". The Potato Cod .... holy crap his nose looked like real life just 12" from my nose being seated that close.
3D on these JVCs with the stunning dynamic range and 25-30 2D FL brightness off the HP screen instead of old school, dim ass 3D FL = mind blown for me
