Ok after much fiddling with the contrast, brightness on both Ati cataylst controls, + CRE X1000 controls +powerstrip RGB, CMY , levels ive finally found my optimum balance of colors.
I also figured out why i was taking rubbish pictures. I had a little fiddle with my DVcam/ and turned off auto white balance, and set it to sunny.
(All the photos were taken from about 5ft11inches away.
The screen i reduced in size as my living room is too small. Currently the screen is 78 Inches diagonaly)
These images looks really good with the eye, but for the camera to pick it up my aiptek camera cant adjust well to the light.
Ok and now the moment of Truth.
I found the best setting is to fail the Mp4-c2 black & whites test miserably, and have all the bars flashing!The best pictures of the CRE X1000 are below!
(5ft 11" away from screen , 78" inch screen measured diagonally)
Anyways for more pictures + a few extra you can get the snapshot 3200 x 2400 full resolution pics ( Click Here )
for those who want to study indepth.
After days of headaches & fiddling to discover correct settings with powerstrip, i can say i`m happy with the color.
On the DV camera I turned off auto white balance, & tried it in sunny mode to take some snapshots, hopefully a fair representation of the picture quality of the rich saturated colors.
If i was to sum up the CRE X1000 the picture quality reminds me of feeling, like theres a paper thin LCD screen up on the wall, only its got like a thin film of fresnel type plastic over the top of it to prevent fingerprints...lol hence the glossy sheen/fuzziness, tho is proably due to the projector screen itself which cost £120 a couple of years back.
I seen some newer screens online geared towards 1080p using new materials, I would be curious to try the CRE X1000 on a quality screen.
