i recently bought a 8350 and for the most part im very happy with it. the only problem that im finding is when im watching a movie with really dark scenes that may have a portion of bright light in it i get a foggy/blotchy looking image around the lighted area. i am not sure if this is just a settings problem or just that the projector is too low end to have better shadows. i have also checked and cleaned the lens and filters, so any ideas would be great!

thanks, keith

"foggy/blotchy" doesn't sound too good. I don't suppose you have a picture of what you see? Are you talking about low shadow detail? In general content close to black will seem black and less detail can be viewed.

The iris affects the whole screen so you should seen one shade of black. I don't think things should seem really fuzzy or blotchy.

Have you calibrated the brightness?
