Thanks for being honest.
I was a little let down the Sony 929 was not setup properly last year and the elite got voted best without a fair shake to the 929.
Then this year after they didn't give it a fair shake last year they just treated it like a bastard child and said it wasn't worthy. Which is really an insult to anyone's intelligence if you ask me. It may not be perfect but it's right there with the Elite depending on who you ask.
It's Roberts show, so he can do whatever it is that he wants. I respect that, and I respect him. But he should be aware he's going to alienate himself a little bit with some of the AV crowd.
... with that said.
Why did I keep seeing warmer white balance on the E8000 and a cooler one on the VT50? (granted it was a video camera, it showed this way the entire time regardless of angle). Could the E8000 not be targeted or was the VT50 set colder to enhance the whites? Or should I just write this off to internet video... haha.
