I don't put much stock into the picture threads but I love seeing some of the artistic abilities that come out.

Very nice shots.

paolino64,

 

Just when I think I've finally mastered the ability to capture a decent screenshot, I see a new photo from you that's absolutely stunning.

I don't quite have the projector or camera to compete, but would really like to see how your JVC looks with Prometheus

 

Here's my best so far...

I REALLY want a JVC for my next projector, but my old Epson isn't quite ready to retire just yet...

Those shots look fantastic. Epson always has made great projectors.

Those non visible black bars are simply stunning with the JVC projectors!
post #2646 of 3000
You need to take all of these shots with a grain of salt. Most consumer grade cameras aren't very sensitive to light levels in low light situations. As you'll see from most of the non-JVC's that have screenshots posted here, they also have completely dark black bars. To get a real grasp on the black levels, I highly suggest seeing one in person and if you can compare side-by-side against a competing projector.

Agreed.

People should take them with a molecule of salt, because there are so many steps from the sensor to the final .jpg and different algorithms that its completely useless to judge a projector by them.

Seriously i can make a picture have perfect highlights and perfect black levels simply by using levels in photoshop and setting my black and white levels correctly and then just dialing in the gray to get as much detail as i want.

Most cameras will crush black bars because thats simply how a meter works, its going to meter the scene for a gray and think the black bars are meant to be black, hell, most cameras dont even have enough dynamic range to resolve any information in the black bars! cameras are far inferior tools for seeing shadows and highlights than our eyes. Even a $3500 D800E is not going to have anywhere near as many "stops" as our eyes.

The Star Wars Ep 5 pic was taken with an iPhone 4s, and the projector is a JVC RS20 (before I got the darblet). The screen is a 2.40:1 115" Carada BW. Thanks for the comments!

Hi, I use the camera in full manual mode, the black bars are not seen.
JVC RS15 OPPO 93 Nikon D70.







post #2654 of 3000

paolino, I was more interested on seeing you post a few shots from the movie Prometheus,

and if possible the scenes I posted, I know if anyone can top those shots it's you with good camera skills, a JVC and a Nikon SLR camera.

 

Thanks for this Shot though,

which is Now my new Favorite because I realize just how hard it is to capture a high contrast image with a black background.

Bravo! my Italian brother!

Ok seriously now, where did you a 1080UB for 250? was it from a old lady garage sale which she had no idea what the value of it was for. Here's my 1080UB on elite motorized 100".
post #2657 of 3000
I think what he mean is $250 is for the 120" motorized screen not the Epson 1080UB

LOL, yes the screen was $250....My Epson is going on five years old now,

and was a little over $2000 new after rebates and a spare lamp, free mount, free shipping...etc.
 

Almost picked up a $1300 B stock JVC HD250 this year, (I'm not interested in 3D at all.

Hopefully there's a new entry level 2D JVC with a CMS next year for around $2-2.5k.

Thats a great price on the HD250. I have a JVC X3 and was watching TDKR last night and I cannot beleive the image that the JVC's throw. That is the type of movie made for the JVC and Epson UB line.

Using Radiance sharpness (1,1,16,24,24,1), Radiance NR (1,0,4) and Darbee (40%) I think I could match the sharpness and detail but can't yet reproduce that fantastic skin tone: any hints please ? are you on D65, gamma 2,2 and Rec.709 ?

Here is a reference image, it's captured direct from a PC's frame buffer. Its not a photo of a screen so colour is perfect.

post #2662 of 3000
Recent RS2 Lumagen 3dLUT and Darblet calibration. It is absolutely nice!!!! Have an RS4810 on the way, and after this latest calibration with the 3DLUT and Darblet, I wish I would have held off. The RS2 is still a beast!!!!!
