Some pictures, during the day, blinds closed but tons of ambient light.
New Sony VPL-HW50ES, Tangled Blu-ray.
Factory settings, Cinema 1, Auto full iris, lamp on "high."
Reality Creation set to ON, but set to MINIMUM, with no noise reduction or other Reality Creation settings on.
Just taken, hand-held, with my iPhone 5s. Nothing special, but to me it looks like a giant flat panel TV. Well, as giant as 100" 1.0 gain screen can be.
Throw distance is 12 feet.
Again, this is more of a demo of how bright this projector can be at a "calibrated" setting (as Cinema 1 is as close to being, out of the box), as well as the general picture quality. I purposely included a view of the (messy!) room so you can see how much ambient light there is in there.
