Let me know if you need any more help. I am familiar with Nikon DSLR's.

Awesome thanks Nicholas! Will give that a shot soon and come back with some more pics smile.gif

I have to be honest, I have not had any time to actually sit down with this thing but I have to admit, with the bit of over exposure, that shot looks awesome smile.gif

Maybe we can arrange sometime to chat on the phone and you can go over the camera with me?

Yo Kev.. now that I got your attention, I have 8 shots here and I want you to do your thing (mimic) with each of them. Now here's what you have to do, you have to do each one of these. Not just a few or one or two. I need you to do them all.

Pure and Natural 1920x1080P

If you expect someone to do this you need to give them the name of the movie and the exact times to use so that they can mimic your shots. Otherwise someone has to try and figure out what the movie is and watch the whole thing while remembering exactly what your 8 shots were. Not really plausible.

Your screenshots are 1600x1200.

Kevin already knows what movie it is and where these scenes are on the Blu Ray, that's why it was addressed to him.

The reference to the resolution was referring to the projectors resolution, not the camera. And we're not trying to capture pixel by pixel with the camera, nor are our eyes 1920x1080P.

Here's what you do Kev. Don't downsize or touch my images in any way. Take your shots at the same camera resolution (1600X1200).

And next, stop sharpening your shots... Can you not tell your shots are being over sharpened still?

Also, when you re-sized my shots they lost a fair amount of sharpness.


So can you redo what you've done at the same camera resolution , and not re-size my shots or touch them in any way other than to copy for comparison.



And don't forget to do the other shots as well..

I copied one of your shots from the digital forum to show the sharpness of your shots when posted over there:

Unless you're shooting in RAW format and creating the JPGs yourself with separate software, *ALL* digital cameras have built in sharpening. There is absolutely no way around it since it's required. If you do shoot RAW and create your own JPGs you add sharpening after. It's not bad thing. It's required. So your camera is doing sharpening as well Mike. To say "don't sharpen" isn't possible, or even logical. It's not a film camera. There is an immense amount of processing done in all digital cameras. There's no way to turn it "off" even if you think you are.

Tried to show like for like photobucket compresses my pics to 1024x768.
I can lower the cameras sharpening but the PJ is on 0 sharpening.

No quick and dirty pics in this thread.

If your shots are done at 1024x768, then I should either also use that resolution or you come up to 1600x1200. When i use 1600x1200 I give up some sharpness for the larger image.

When you put my shots through photo bucket it affects the resolution and that causes the shots to be softer.

So a fair comparison would need to have both at the same resolution, and that they are also not re-processed by any service.

I appreciate you pointing out that you need to lower the sharpness in your camera, and that its not the projector that's causing the problem I'm seeing.

My camera also takes the larger size files, but I use "Imageshack" to post my images to. It allows me to choose different size resolutions.



I loaded two of the same shots I posted earlier, but this time I've sized them to 1024x768 - they are still un-touched.

If i owned a CRT i would want the above look.

Imageshack to the rescue. Will shoot at 3008x2000 now above resized in Photoshop
as a test (un-touched).

Noticed Exif data also remains and the sharpness is set to hard (changed ).smile.gif

You still can't see the edge enhancement in your shots?

Look at the bigger of the kids right leg. There is still tooo much sharpening going on. Why do you have to add sharpness to a Digital Projector?

Will redo again next time with cameras sharpness set to normal (did not realize it was hi).

hey Kev, you still have not posted the last of the THREE shots (tree and leaves) I asked you to post...anyway, and never mind, because you're still posting shots that have too much sharpening, that they seriously lack any resemblance of FILM or Natural. The original for that Blu Ray is 70mm film...well, we know that 70mm film is powerful in image quality, but because it is the reference to Film, it's also not super sharp. It shows things more like how they are when you look at the world using your own eyes.

I took a few more for you to look at as a reference as to what Film and Natural should look like. I've also thrown in the test pattern one more time. This is all of course still 1920X1080P /60hz..smile.gif
