BTW, great shots from the Astrahan, Kevin, Chris, Ethenolas, and everyone else.

Thanks Tim for the reply.

Also, Kevin I agree with you and I will get the settings from my camera, next post.

Thanks matts.

Love the colors on yours.

My 6500ub has a very natural look too. I really like it after minor calibration.

I'll take some more shots tonight, out of ambient light and hopefully get them a little sharper.

Matts you go to UGA?

Hey Guys,
I tried to take some screen shots off my new Pioneer FPJ1 (aka JVC RS-2) tonight. The projector is brand new and the only adjustment I made was to the gamma based on posts from the RS-2/FPJ1 thread. I used Anirbana's method of setting the aperture and then adjusting the wheel to adjust the exposure. The method is easy to follow. However, my photos seem to have a green hue to me. I don't know if I'll post any of those. I may take more pics before I post.

BTW: GO HEELS!

Here goes my first attempt with the new projector and my new photo "skills"
Projector: Pioneer FPJ1/JVC RS-2; Pioneer BDP-51FD blu-ray; 110" 1.2 gain screen; Nikon D50 DSLR; Galapagos blu-ray Projector is straight out of the box and now has 4hrs.

I definitely need to work on my framing first. Sorry for the angled shots. I need to move the tipod instead of rotating it. I also have some kind of rainbow thing going on. There is also a green tint I could not get rid of. The green tint is puzzling. I know several others have posted Nikon DSLR pics and they were not adding the green tint.

Matts, wonderful shots as usual.
Limulus, great first shots. Please post more. If you don't mind, I can PM you on some suggestion on camera settings and to get rid of green tint. Though I don't get the colors right as well as it depends on the camera's processing. What Matt does may help in shhoting raw images.

Some shots from 30 days of night.

Make sure your camera color settings are neutral and lower the exposure/f number -
on the green pics take a 1 sec 1.3 sec 1.6 sec see how that works.....

amirbana really nice shots btw and Kevin your screen shots have gotten MUCH better than when you first started to post.

Great shots all around from everyone although they are limited to what the camera can display I'm sure they look even better in person..this is a fun thread
post #971 of 3000
Screen shots are hard indeed. I've tried a few times to do this and it looks pretty bad lol ...so you guys who have mastered this art have my respect.
post #972 of 3000
People keep saying that screenshots are meaningless, but I can definetely see common trends between how JVC, DLP and 3LCD projectors look in this thread, despite being shot by different owners. JVC screens look very smooth and film-like, with very bright whites and very dark blacks but midtones somewhat laid back/reserved. DLP projectors look very sharp and clear with midtones and texture very clearly defined. 3LCD shots look flatter than either and a bit more grainy too.

Regarding camera settings: I've been setting mine at 7.1 and 8 for most shots. In my shots that were showing a green tint, should I go up or down on that setting?

Test it downwards or leave as is and step exposure time up/down to see if that helps with the tint....get testing only you will know whats best....keep us informed....

post #977 of 3000
Yes great shots Chris but if the source looks as noisy as in your pics thats a poor job for a new film.....
post #978 of 3000
No it is not bad at all. I'm surprised you see grain, I can't see any grain on my desktop or on my laptop at all hmmm...

You lucky guy. Nice shots Chris.

I don't see noise than what is added by camera by default or part of film grain. Is your sharpness on PJ on camera set too high? In some monitors, added sharpness gives impression of noise.

I know it could be your camera, but there are some seriuos black crush in some of your shots like the one below. If it is the camera, you can try a higher shutter speed.

Your Shot


One reference shot from Blu-ray.com- A lot of detail in the background and even on Daniel's suit. This contains more noise - grain from film.

Chris,
Nice shots! I see one shot from Quantum Of Solace w/subtitle (You only buy cheap wine?). Were these subtitles in the theatrical release - or are they BD player generated subs?

They are part of the movie, ther'e a girl in the scene there & she tells the guy at the table sitting with bond that he buys cheap wine.

I watched the Mummy III this weekend. Better not to talk about the movie. The studio should stop this Mummy thing now.

However, the Blu Ray image of this movie is a real stunner. One of the best movie transfers and it shines. A must have reference material. I only wish the movie was 1/10th as good as the image.

I watched this on low IRIS setting of 18 as this BR has this very filmic look and I was mighty impressed. After buying this PJ I have started appreciating a more filmic image with lot of depth than making my PJ look like a giant Plasma or TV. I could open up the IRIS and make it punchy but I have started liking it in filmic way. I think the JVC ones are naturally film like than other PJs. Will have to see one someday... Enjoy...

Sorry about the tilted shots as I am still using the Sofa rest.
