Disclaimers first: I'm not a shutter bug, don't snap shots often and I don't own a regular or digital camera (or know anybody that has one or would be willing to lend it to me). The first four pictures were taken with a Mini-DV camera, captured digitally as TIFF files and the downconverted to JPEG. Unless noted you should assume the pictures from the images of the 747i look much sharper in person than they do here. All pictures after that were taken with the same camera but as digital pictures on a Memory Stick.
So, after one solid year reading and getting myself hyped-up about 1080p and high definition TV, what is the very first image I see on my new 747i with the ATSC tuner and an antenna?
Bummer! Luckily NBC was showing some HD golf at the same time. Even better, my new LCD is impervious to a well-lit room with a window right next to it (notice my 27" SD Sony and laptop in the background):
Picture-in-Picture with two 1080i OTA sources. Notice how squeezed and stretched the NBC golf PIP window is? That's because for that input I chose "Aspect"...
...instead of "Full Screen," which keeps the small PIP window (or the same-size one's when using Split-Screen) looking normal. Bottom line: when using PIP/Split-Screen make sure your display is on "Full Screen" (unless the stretched look of "Aspect" appeals to you).
Now for some high-def stuff.
"I Am Legend" (HD-DVD add-on on XBox 360):
"2001: A Space Odyssey" (same set-up):
"Lost" (OTA antenna):
