hi art

as my 4000 watt xenon lamp have now almost 300 hours for the
first time i can see this picture below 30 ftl (arround 27ftl)

but as this is in min. lamp power i can still go up with max. lamp
power to arround 52 ftl if i like

i try that level several times.
it looks great very nice if the source material is very good and if the movie
show all the time bright seq.

its not nice when the source switch between bright and dark seq. as it arduous to the eye.

i feel very pleasant if i runn it at arround 27 to max. 35 ftl.

more i not like but below 25 ftl its hard for me as well.

the good thing about this level is that your pupil even in dark seq.
not go up and therefore the black level looks still very nice.

thats by the way a good sample why numbers are not always tell
everything.
no instrument have a pupil that go up and down but our eye works this way

I've noticed that myself with my system. I had 10fL with my CRTs and 24fL with my DLP . When it drops to full black out it still looks pretty black due to the effect you mention. Of course ,when that adaptation doesn't occur you can see that the blacks are raised but that as an issue comes up less than I would have expected.

It seems mostly noticable in preview movie trailers

Started the owners thread. Will take some time before I give my observations. I need to allow it to settle in, as I usually am rather dissatisfied with every new projector I get for some reason. I think I tend to set my expectations way too high.

Well, you will have to allow it to "burn in" of course!

Looking forward to your observations...
