Still looks great to me though.

I was commenting on mtbdudex's pictures. And what you posted is not one of his pictures.

I tried that shot too but with the settings I was using it came out too dark. I tried using the brightness control to aproximate what I see on the screen but I really need to take that shot again with different settings.
BTW guys, I think I should stay on the under 3K area since while it was a 7K projector when it came out, you can find it for much less now.
What do you guys think?

That's great Luis Gabriel Gerena. It looks much more natural than the RS1 screen shot (which looks exceedingly orange).

Thanks! I couldnt capture the real contrast on that one due to how dark the image looked. I will repost when I take a better one.
I think its more of a camera playing tricks on the image on that RS1 screen shot btw.

Pictures look good on your RS350--Can you let us know the Gama Custom 1 settings you used?

Scott,

That's the beauty of the CMS on the Crystalio processor. With it I've been able to calibrate my primaries very close to the BT709 HD specification.

in any case, I probably like a bit of color over saturation, esp. for animation. yes I know -- philistine!

Animations such as Wall-E are very vivid and bright however film content I believe is represented well by the RS-1 when properly calibrated. I don't believe my camera is doing my screen caps much justice.

Mike,
yea, good family memories. I can see it now,

"Daddy, stop taking pictures and let the movie go."
"Daddy, stop putting up that menu thingy to make the colors better."
"Daddy, come back and watch the movie with us instead of posting your pictures on AVS"

Scotty;

You were at my house last night as well? I missed you in all the fun.

Good call, actually I did take 3-4 pictures and stopped due to exactly what you mentioned, I watched the movie with my family (and really enjoyed it) and made small mental note of neat scenes to take picts.

This morning, before they awoke, set-up the tripod at mid screen width close to mid height and took picts, import into iPhoto, crop 2.35:1 wide, send to Picasa, put in this thread.

After that was done I was not satisfied my PJ/lens combo was correctly set-up. Therefore, I dialed in my PJ/a-lens combo more by putting the a-lens within 1/4" of the PJ lens and making sure the image on the glass was centered. Prior it was about 7/8" from the lens and too high, never dialed it in because projecting image on me temp wall screen did not seem to matter, and honestly I forget after getting my DIY screen done until last night.
Wow, little off made a big diff for geometry of the combo.
My next set of picts should be about as sharp as my PJ/lens combo can get.

seriously, this thread is very enjoyable b/c for once it's about people's enjoyment and not fixation on technical details.

National Treasure 2: Book of secrets.
4 year old watched most of this, kinda slow for him mostly, 2 year old fell asleep after 30 minutes, wife and I enjoyed it.

I'm not a movie taking expert, but now that I'm taking some picts I've noticed how scenes are composed and the focus / focal length is utilized by the director to emphasize shots, and I've also noticed as they pan/zoom how out of focus some shots are......and they get them back into focus after the pan/zoom not during it.
I can hear people saying that is intentional on the directors part and not technology limits.

























What are those glasses reflecting???












post #344 of 3000
Nice screen shots all around.

I'd have to say the Infocus 7210 screen shots are whoopin' butt!
post #345 of 3000
the INFOCUS 7210 shots: ANSI contrast rules !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
it's paramount.

no wonder i went back to DLP...

higher realism.
post #346 of 3000
Art
what lumens /FTL have you so far measured on yr pj ?
how would rate its brigthness to a SIM2 C3X 250 ?
have you see the IN83 ?
beautiful shots. the punch is there. the punch, ansi are paramount !
DLP remains more 3D realistic than lcos lcd
post #347 of 3000
Here's my very first attempt at doing these. Shot with Nikon D700 and a bit of processing in photoshop. JVC RS1 on a 1.3 gain white screen, 123".

Sin City (Canada)

keep posting, Luis, because your $999 PJ is schooling the RS1
post #353 of 3000
nice shots, Rob!

Yeah, the Cn version may not be perfect but for the price, I'm very pleased.

post #354 of 3000
those RS1 shots are superb

but all in all, it also depends on the material.
many dvd and blu rays are not worth being taken as screenshots if you seek to render the 3D aspect.
some blu ray i adore :THE BRAVEN ONE, SUNSHINE, IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH
the depth of field is amazing often with those.

I'm going to assume that you meant this tongue in cheek, but in case you didn't, and for others that may be thinking you were serious, I will say that I think it would be a huge mistake for anyone to put ANY credence in screen shots taken with a digital camera and put on the web.

There are far too many variables. Camera settings, white balance, quality of camera lens, sharpness settings, adjustments in photoshop, computer monitor calibration, etc.

Yes, it depends on the material, and many other things as well...as mentioned above.

Agreed! I made mention of the subjective nature of screen shots in some of the first posts on this thread. They definitely should not be used for making purchase decisions or as concrete comparisions of projectors. Given that it is still fun to take, post, and compare screen shots.

I'm just glad to see this thread re-invigorated and everyone is having fun with it.
post #360 of 3000
Yeah, the RS1 is showing an extreme over saturation in red.
Just look at the blood stains and that caddy.
fuggetaboudit

Plus those Dark Knight shots.
No wonder it's gotten trashed.
My eyes! My eyes!

And the Bond?
Look at the EE on Robert Shaw's mole. Whew!
And that old broad's going for "The Pick".
Gross.
