Using Tangled 3D on blu, using a modification of my regular 2D settings. Let me preface by saying I own a Vizio and Toshiba 32" passive 3D TV(s). Not amazing sets by ANY means, but decent bedroom TVs with usable 3D when needed. I'm also a photographer and spend a ton of money on camera gear to achieve the most sharpness possible (Canon 1D IV is my current camera, 45 auto focus points to quell my quest for good focusing DSLR's). I'm 9 feet away from a 65 inch screen (and have my PS3 set to a 65 inch screen...this may be the issue since there's no way for the Playstation to know my viewing distance, but lets just assume my PS3 isn't worsening the already well documented cross-talk in Panasonic plasmas).
Now with that said, when watching 3D content (Tangled) I first noticed the problem when you see the tower out in the field for the first time...at first the scene is bright but the tower is still dark in color. ANYTHING that is a dark gray or brown in color while watching 3D suffers from cross-talk, it literally looks like portions of the picture are out of focus (not in a pleasing photographic way, but the OMG let this scene change kind of way). Once the tower is lit, then the 3D adjusts and its perfect. I'm not well versed on how active 3D tech works but its pretty obvious that the glasses are constantly re-focusing similar to contrast or phase detection that a camera does (and like a camera is harder to lock focus when the subject is poorly lit). Now why do I guess this? Increasing the overall TV brightness so that the darker shades are now brighter did lessen the cross-talk slightly in those darker areas when compared to the exact same scene with correct brightness levels. So now that alleviates some of the problems with cross talk in dark shades...but blacks will still always suck.
Long story short, just about every other scene makes me want to yell "Focus!". Trust me, I get when something is supposed to be in or out of focus to draw your eyes to what is in focus...but this cross-talk is literally jumping out at the screen at me and distracts me from what I should be focusing on.
Using the 3D adjustments in the Setup menu is able to align the cross talk while throwing different portions of the picture out of alignment. (look for reviews, this is nothing new).
All of our eyes are different, but to me I couldn't sit through an entire movie, it just IRKED me. By contrast I watch 2D blu's in 48hz mode and really enjoy that (where most people find it unusable)...so who knows.
Also...has anyone experienced the buzzing actually decrease up until the ~100-200 hour mark?
