I have to wait to get a problem with my laptop fixed before I can do the upgrade. But I have been playing around on the original firmware with relatively high settings (26 - 30) on the image detail control with many hi rez photos loaded onto my PS3 and cropped from 1920x1200 to 1920x1080 from this site:http://interfacelift.com/wallpaper_b...oads/date/any/
I'm using a very revealing combination of an 8.5' wide 16x9 Hi Power screen with a JVC RS2 on high lamp. (Yes, am after as many footlamberts as I can get for this particular application). I'm pretty amazed at being able to go that high with the setting, maybe even higher, and not see ANY negative effects up close on the screen. The RS2 has very good convergence and excellent edge to edge focus.
What I see instead (with my gamma at seemingly this projector's all around sweet spot of 2.3) is the pictures take on visibibly even more depth and detail and realism as the setting is taken from 0 up to 26-30. For chuckles I have tried running other "very clean" sources through the PS3 at this same setting with motion, as with the Blu Ray mountain sequences in Planet Earth, and The Dark Knight as well. To my amazement it seems to hold up even there, with this added "apparent" depth and detail, with no side effects. Not saying I would choose this high for the detail setting for Blu Ray....just a test with pretty impressive results.
From what I have read of the enhancements with the firmware update, the "Detail" circuitry is improved even further?? Holy crap Batman
Is this true? In what way/ways?
Does anyone have any observations in this particular area, please?
