I was using a Sony DSC-S70 3.34Mpxl camera.
My settings were infinite focus, on a tripod, and with the shutter speed set at 1/8. That seemed to be the best capture I could get. Lower shutter speeds made the picture brighter than it really was, and higher shutter speeds made the picture much darker than it is.
I must say this Sony camera tends to err on the red side (giving photos a slight red tinge). My last Sony 2.1 gave photos a slight blue hue to them. Knowing this, I still did NOT correct these in Photoshop. Hence why Nutty Professor looks a little on the red side.
The blacks are pretty darn close. When watching the daylight scenes, yes, the blacks you see below are pretty representative of the black levels I'm getting. But in sure black scenese like the first Close Encounter shot, the blacks aren't as jet-black. But, they are pretty darn close that I have -->ZERO<-- regrets giving up my Sony D50q.
Your shutter speed needs to be slower. Experiment with that.
Basically correct, but then again Dean's set-up is throwing out almost 50% more in brightness. But yes, I think the digi-pictures darken a bit. Dean, the new scenery discs I got are just awesome......
Take a bow, I'm blown away. And since Saturday night (when I got my screen - beats watching on a purple wall!) I've been in there watching movies on a bean bag every night. Oh the ecstacy......I thought throwing up some pictures would do the calibration justice....
Okay, I'll put up some more photos tomorrow or something......
