and is that probably because you aren't using e-shift ? in anycase I DO not understand sorry since with e-shift 4 on which is what use for 4k you see no pixels...ive taken screen shot CLOSE up and I mean seriously close up even with blu-ray no pixels and it looks STUNNING !
I don't see the grid with E-Shift on.
I am not sitting too close, thats totally subjective. Where you sit may be considered miles away to me and other people so each their own regarding that.
I sit 6.5ft from a 120inch screen and my vision is very good, When E-Shift is on, the projector is no longer displaying its native form, its mechanical image processing. It looks really good but its not native sharpness and its not 4k. Its four million native pixels shy of it.
I watch everything through HTPC and Yes I do use E-Shift and the drop in inherent sharpness with it enabled is a trade off that I have to accept to not see a pixel grid. MadVR seems to make it all better though, but I cant begin what that would look like with the absolute sharpness that would come with a native 4k panel.
When I try watching something with E-Shift off, the sharpness of the lens really shines but I see a kind of subtle moire as the grid is on the verge of being totally visible. If I lean forward I can plainly see it.
Furthermore the pixel grid size with E-Shift on is still bigger than the Sony's native pixel size with Reality Creation on.
Regarding your images. Turn off Eshift, stick your nose right up to the screen, see how crisp, sharp and in focus it looks vs the blur it turns into with E-Shift on? Well imagine now if you could have the pixel density of Eshift and the same sharpness you see with it off. If the Sonys had better lenses thats what you would be looking at.
Which is why I am certainly hanging out to see a native 4k JVC. If you think UHD looks good now on the 7000 (it does look amazing btw) wait until the entire panel grid is razor sharp, native, AND there is another four million pixels on the screen which we are completely not even seeing right now. That will be something else
