Ric,
Between the first two pictures, Bruce Willis and Baldwin, Bruce looks much more out of focus than the Baldwin guy. Is that the picture you took? Film? or PJ doing that?

I might order the UB but with all the convergence talk I'm wondering which of the 3 is causing that look.
(Side note, WOW those UB black levels look great)

The projector is capable of extremely good focus. However, any movement from the subject at all will introduce some blurring. Sometimes I'm lucky and freeze a frame of a totally static subject. I think Baldwin in the photo was fairly still. Willis was talking and looking around during that scene and I had to try to freeze it when he was not moving as much. I think that is what is causing the difference between the two photos.

Now about the black level. Be aware that photos exaggerate black level. The colors and brightness are pretty accurate, but the blacks are slightly darker than viewed on screen. Don't get me wrong, the 1080UB has excellent blacks for an lcd projector. In fact, they are the best I have ever seen for LCD. But don't rely upon my photographs as the definitive reflection of the 1080 UB blacks. That's one of the dangers with screenshots. There are many variables that can skew the actual image on screen either positively or negatively.

I have not even bothered to go too far into settings, but IIRC the settings are:

Lamp: High
Contrast: 15
Brightness: 0
Gamma: Video (Sometimes Cinema, in those pics it's video)
Color Temp: Warm
Sharpness: -2
Color: 2
Brilliant Color: 3
Setup: Off

Running 1080i from the HD-A2, enhanced black levels on, enhanced RGB range (dunno if it makes a difference) on.

The camera I took those pictures with is a 5 year old, dying Olympus 3.2MP handheld that can't focus properly, half of those screenshots aren't as sharp as they look in real life.

its funny how the mitsu 1500 looks 100 times better than the epson 1080ub, but granted the photos of the epson arent the best and that mercury rising movie is probably a crap transfer, didnt even think that movie would be put on hi def.

Well photo are always misleading... for details. Like on Halo Screenshot, you can't see the jaggies even if the game got them hard since it's not even in 720p and it's upscaled..

Well with the way the progress bar looks on the Epson screenies - I'd have to say the blame lies on the camera.

Why?

The Optoma HD65 costs less than $ 3.000 USD MSRP.

And here in this topic we are posting Screenshots of projectors, which cost less than $ 3000 USD MSRP.

Where is the mistake?

Sorry if I understood wrong.

Yes, it really does. It actually looks better in real life, IMHO. I've had a HD65 for a month and am very happy with it. Pretty amazing little machine, I'd say.
