I'm a professional commercial advertising photographer and I think the amount of save slots (10) for user settings on the 3700 is too low. I've been thinking of getting into contact with Epson to ask for a firmware update that increases the amount of slots.
The thing is, is that every 3D movie I have watched is calibrated differently. I.e. watch Gravity 3D on the standard setting and all the whites are green. Calibrate RGB it so it looks perfect and put on something like Tron 3D and everything is off again. Watching a movie with the "true" grading intent of the cinematographer and director adds a whole dimension to the experience.
So like a projectionist I have written notes on the calibration of every 3D movie (from sharpness, tint to saturation, to RGB values, etc) on pieces of A4 paper, it's kind of a hassle to input them again and again for every movie. I wonder how much trouble it would be to increase it from 10 slots to 50 slots or 99 or so? In terms of ROM memory the data is negligible.
For 2D it's not a (big) problem, there the calibration values that projectorcentral lists are ok.
Anyone with me?
That seems like an awful lot of work IMO. I would calibrate 3d mode with a meter "through the glasses" to achieve at least a decent white balance adjusting bias and gain with RGB settings to get a fairly even 6500K throughout the IRE white fields range. Use the same glasses for 3D viewing.
As annoying as it may be, seeing shifts in whites between movies, that's how it's mastered unfortunately, but you should feel confident that your projector is at least not at "fault".
I'm a professional sound engineer/mixer, and the center channel/dialog in movies drives me crazy, because they are all over the place too. I feel myself wanting to constantly adjust the center channel volume for starters, but I also want to dig in to the EQ settings and change them, sometimes drastically....but I don't.
I just tell myself..well, the person in charge of mixing this didn't really know what they were doing.
No matter how many memory slots you have, you'd eventually run out, and possibly want more in the future.
Just my $0.02.....
