Thanks Cad,
The source is not so good but some scenes looked really good. I am looking forward to Gladiator Blu ray.

Did you get your Planar 8130?

Some more shots



post #1264 of 3000
I got my pd8130 but my HT is not functional yet and I dont have a camera either. So it will be a while before I post any screenshots of my own.
post #1265 of 3000
Took one shot of QOS - mkv file. I assume the BLU Ray will look sharper and detailed. Will post more shots from QOS after getting the Blu ray disc.

Thanks

I have to say...I am enjoying the new projector a lot.

I think it is producing some of the most natural colors i have seen on a projector. (thank you again stereomandan)

Here are some more from my 6500UB. 87" - Wall

I missed the Transformers pics...so I thought i'd give it a go. Sorry they are a little blurry....i dont have a tripod

(day shots...ambient light present)

I hope you enjoy!

























Do these look too blue??? Some others look more green / orange

anirbana,

Fantastic, reference shots as usual! You really know how to make that projector shine.

Kevin 3000,
Those 2001 pics are great!!! Really show off the black level of the JVC's.

Ethenolas,
Those Dark Knight pics are fantastic! Great dynamic range with no hint of grain.
Transformers is in my top 5 all time favorite movies, but it's been very hard for me to get good screenshots from. The director intentionally messed with the color, so skintones never quite look right. (they always seem yellow/orange to me in this movie). Still, I love the desert shots that you did!!!

Thanks!

Thanks to you, the colors are as good as they are...

It is pointless for me to calibrate any more meticulously than I already have...

I am moving soon and will have this on a wall with black widow paint. I will spend more time calibrating it then...

The cream wall throws off colors a hair...but i have corrected it as best i can. I will post pics in a few months from a real screen.

Here are more. Same ...87" wall Epson 6500UB

Kill Bill Vol. 1











































What's this!!??? A screen shot...of...a...screenshot??? idk...lol it looks like hes looking at the mouse pointer...

post #1275 of 3000
I was curious to see how digital and CRT would look like together, so I edited your excellent post...

(The smaller ones are the CRT).

CADOBHuK I hope these meet your standards.

Stereomandan...Thanks for all your calibration help. The colors look great. I can't wait to get this thing off a cream wall and onto a screen!



I do enjoy looking at your thread; you guys really keep it active!
post #1276 of 3000
wow...those are very close...

I would believe they were from the same projector if someone posted them as such.

The 6500ub looks a tad sharper...but it could be just camera error.

The colors look almost the same

Thanks Dan.

This is for all people who have DSLR or little high end compact. I found a hint posted by by someone in this thread probably Acta7 and tried it and it really works in capturing better shadow details. Still not as good as real but better than earlier at least to me.

What is it?If you look at my latest 6-8 pictures, you will see in the exif tag there is one camera setting change I have done

Contrast - Low
What i noticed is reducing this to -1 or -2 in camera increases the dynamic range of the capture reducing black crush and white blooming.

I was struggling to get the detail that i see in projected image on the wall behind Daniel Craig in the shot below with contrast set to normal but on changing it to low the shot came up better. There is so much to learn here....

DSLR owners can give it a try by reducing contrast setting on camera or capturing in raw. It worked for me...I do not have any editing software to handle raw files unfortunately.

Awesome shots ethenolas. Like the Epson...How much diff are you finding between the 6500 and the older 1080 UB?

Not bad for projecting onto a cream wall. Here are some I took of the same scenes with my DVD projecting onto a High Power 2.8 gain 106" screen like ricwhite has. I have heard only good things about the black widow so I look forward to seeing what those look like also. My Benq w5000 projector is not pro calibrated and I'm getting a new camera soon.

Thanks. You need to post some new shots of your 2.35:1 setup. Also, I think my calibration is on the blue/green side. I need to calibrate it with a blu-ray calibration disc now.

Thanks! I am loving it after calibration...

I have been asked this a lot...and it is getting harder and harder to tell because I sold my 1080UB and never calibrated as much as I have the 6500UB.

However...I remember when I had them side by side for a while and will tell you what I saw.

The 6500UB is noticeably sharper. projectorreviews says there is not a new lens...however, i spoke with level 2 tech at Epson and they said that although they are the same type of lens by the same manufacturer...it does have upgraded optics... I love a sharp image so this is a big deal for me.

The rest functions as a slightly improved 1080UB. Better contrast, blacks, brightness, shadow detail ect...

I have told people that i would pay about $400 for the upgrade between the two when FI is fixed (I think it is great for animations, video games and a few select BD titles [planet earth])

I lucked out an snatched my 6500UB used with full warranty for very cheap and ended up making money selling my 1080ub.

Unless you get a great price...i would recommend waiting for next round, as the upgrade is evolutionary not revolutionary...

Hope this give you an idea.

Good shots paolino64.

stevemo. tone your green down a little bit and it looks like you are getting a little black crush... Fix that and your picture will be much better. I love the w5000 btw...i probably would have it if i had the space...amazing sharpness...although the 6500UB comes close

Your 6500UB will have better off-axis image though. I checked two CRT monitors I have and did some boost to the saturation and both seem to show a green tint to the images so I probobly will not be adjusting the green down. I have my iris closed down to zero and it's a 2.8 gamma. Also the camera is not know for accurate color. I'm still looking at cameras but my pick now is the LX3. With the warming filter in the camera I should get some better saturation, and some better shadow detail with the improved shutter speed. My current camera also uses a noisey compression algorithm that really mucks up the blacks. This isn't my camera really but the one I own woln't stay on a tripod because the place for the attachment is stripped out.

Paolino is CHEATING !
you can try this freeware program to see if a a screenshot is postprocessed: http://jpegsnoop.softonic.it/download#pathbar

Putting in a Paolino shot it says:
