Now it has turned into a game for me. I'm trying to see how long I can hold out and what I can get as it's being phased out. For example, I could buy a Marantz VP 12S4 for under $2k. A couple of years ago, they were $10k. I know that's a 720 projector, but probably better than a lot of 1080p stuff. I'm waiting now for a great deal on a 1080p projector. In 2007, I bought my wife a watch for $6k and I could have bought a new projector then. However, that same projector could probably be bought now for $1k. I am definitely going to buy a new one this year and I'm going to buy a Blu-ray player also. Hell, I may even upgrade my sat service to HD...maybe. TV just ain't that important to me.

Great PotC shots Kevin. The dark scenes look realy good. Great blacks and shadow detail.

limulus, I know how you feel. I was using a Benq pb6100 Svga projector since Feb 04. I briefly had an Optoma HD65 before getting the Benq W5000 at christmas. I should be good for another 4/5 years. Still, the old Benq was my first love.

Kevin, choice of PJ is very personal and the HD350 is a better PJ than most budget PJs in many ways and it should be. As for me, I have seen LCD, LCos and DLP and somehow always like DLP. Don't know why and this is my 4th DLP . Similarly you have enough reason why you like the HD350 than the HD80.

I cannot afford the HD350 myself but I am looking forward to see one in action. I have read all praise about it other than the colour issue and not so dynamic image in mixed to very bright scenes against DLP. But the HD350s legendary blacks are better than most PJs and it stands out from the rest. And I want to have a look at it to see the awesome blacks which also appears in few of your shots. Keep them coming....

Kevin props for your screenshots. Somehow they seem to get better and better every time you post. This last batch is nicely sharp and very contrasty. Blacks are very deep too!

Maybe i'm just seeing that progress because arrival of my own HD-350 gets closer and I need to convince myself I made the right purchase
Keep it up!


Oh and anirbana i've allways watched your screenshots with a lot of pleasure. Of all the dlp's you owned! Your screenshots allways have this `reach out and touch` feel. Great.

I think using higher f/5 - f/8 helped i am usually stuck at 1 sec f/3.5 as i have not got full control of exposure in manual mode on this canon sx1 as far as i can see anyways.

Needless to say actual in the flesh views will not leave you wanting.....

To My Pal ANIRBANA: Thanks for your reply. Now kindly give hint to where I could buy also the Infocus IN80 you have. For me this gives sharpness & detail nonpareil. I have never been sold on any other competing technology, its DLP all the way. If the IN80 has been raised, I'll go wait for the Optoma HD808. Gratefull for the attention.

Don't buy something based on screenshots. Every technology offers advantages &disadvantages. You need to find out which one appeals to you most. And for that you need to see that yourself. Most new 1080p PJs offer great sharpness and detail so please don't buy just looking at my shots. My screenshots are not as dynamic as what I see and the same goes for all others who post. So demo and then buy.

Here are some more from me. I do not think I am going to post anymore screenshots until I can figure out my SLR. I just can not seem to get it right. I tried aperature priority on these shots, but I am not overly pleased with how they turned out...
Panasonic DMP-BD55, JVC DLA-HD750, 100" Screen, Nikon D40X
"Welcome to The Rock"

Shiznit, I always enjoy your shots and you are one of the few JVC owners who post wonderful shots with nice colours and flesh tones. Have you calibrated the PJ yourself?

I use the same DSLR - Nikon D40x.I used aperture priority earlier but had to discard too many shots.
Now, I use manual mode with Aperture at f7.1 and Shutter at 1.6 sec for bright shots and 2 sec for dark shots. One advantage I have found wityh manual mode is the images do not turn up with white bloom.Even with manual I can't get the camera right everytime.

If you are using the kit lens 18-55mm, F7.1 will give you good sharpness. So, do keep posting for fun.

Go back to using your G10 looked fine to me you are the only regular HD-750 owner here to
share screenshots move away from closeups to show the colors - shadow details and dynamic range of your machine.....

These are for fun i post pics that are not quite right -- who cares i do not, not selling them, i have the machine to watch.....
Reviews are about now for others to read not our job... I just enjoy taking pics....

Thanks for your comments anirbana. The projector is set to OOTB (out of the box) THX setting and I only calibrated the brightness and contrast. Yes I noticed the blooming on my shots and it is annoying. I'll be playing with the SLR some more for sure. So now to figure out Photobucket.

Also anirbana, do you MANUAL FOCUS as well??? I am thinking I have to start doing this as well because the auto focus definitely has trouble some times focusing on the screen....I know this as my screen shots reflect it...

Yes, I do use manual focus. I use one scene where the subject is in middle and distinct. autofocus the camera and then switch to manual with focus unchanged.

One problem I get with my D40x is pink tinge in certain shots. Like the ones shown below. The actual scenes from my PJ is slightly warmer and not pinkish. Do you experience something similar with your D40x? I discard most shots where the effect is more and only post ones that looks close to what i see or with less pink tinge.

D40x only has a 3 point AF system so manual focus is a must unlike the G10 which prob has 9 points.....

Also you could use auto focus bracketing - set values + - from focus point takes 3 pics use 1 in focus my SX1 has this feature yours may not?
For the kit 18-55 lens, it performs with the least color abberations at ~35mm and with a f8-11 aperture, EV set -0.7 to darken the too light - camera issus - colours.

Thanks Kevin for the information. My DSLR do not have exp bracketing though i suggest that to others.
Even the colour mode in camera plays a major role in the outcome. The shots below were taken on a diff colour mode on camera I used for shooting flowers and forgot to change the settings. As you can see, the images appear slightly over saturated (at least for my taste).

Wonderful Kevin. Some of the images has a depth that is astounding for a DVD. Need to see the movie sometime. I think the last time I watched was on TV and never on a PJ.
