I thought it would be fun to show the same screenshot comparing the HC3800 vs many other projectors, using Art @ projector reviews 5th element spaceship scene.
Some things I noticed when comparing all of these different PJ screenshots>
> They range from blurry to sharp. Either camera was shaking (does he use a remote trigger?), or the image isn't the same EXACT frame.
> PJ's calibrated differently--or, the Camera is capturing different exposures. If you look at the round white microwave dish like antenna on the front of the ship (near the front middle, below center), you can see details on the round dish on the HC3800 shot, while on every other PJ shot it is overexposed/blown out (except the IN83 and Vivitek LED PJ).
All of these were from Art's 'comparative' contrast shots...so they were not the intentionally overexposed ship shots.
I'm leaning that this shot is the exact frame, and the differences between blurry to sharp, and blown out whites to detailed whites, is either a PJ calibration problem, camera capture, and/or camera shake.
I at first was going to post all the shots in 1 post, but found it would be hard to compare the HC3800 directly with a shot 4 pics down. So I broke the shots into separate posts, with the HC3800 always being the top pic.
With that, enjoy!
