It doesn't seem that the benefit of HDR, or it's varieties, are that useful except for perhaps pjs capable of very high light output like the laser pjs. Or at least HDR will not look nearly as good as on top tier flat panels.
idk, I'm utterly amazed at the HDR picture I get now. I saw it morph from horrible (5040UBe).....to wow, pretty good (365ES).....to Holy Crap! (675ES)
.......at least until the panel degrades!

HDR will most likely never look as good as on flat panels like you say but i still believe that there are improvements to be made for HDR viewing on pjs, it will just take some time.
Really curious to see those settings Dave Harper talked about earlier in this thread for the 675. I hope he can share them with us.
Don't bank on it. The wolves would pounce and the circling sharks would strike and any word I write would just be chum in the water to the thoughtless, heartless killers preying for their next meal.
I'm not a man of absolutes. I know what a reference is, but I also appreciate the artistry on top of all that and where it takes you. References and standards are there as a baseline and a starting point. I've been in these so called "standards setting meetings" and they're NOT what people think. They're a bunch of science nerds with pocket protectors and tape on the bridge of their glasses that wouldn't know the passion if it snuck under their table at Applebee's. They all argue their points and then come to a final consensus, throwing away one good idea after another for whatever reason that the more type A scientist happened to fight for, or budget dollars permitted. Think "BetaMax vs VHS", or "HD-DVD vs Bluray", "Mac vs PC". The best format didn't always, nor rarely ever won.
HDR is still in its infancy and no one really knows what it's supposed to be for projectors yet, but it certainly seems like everyone's an expert here that tries to tell everyone else how it's supposed to be done, right? I say, maximize what you can and push your unit to its limits without sacrificing image quality. If it helps more than it hurts.....go for it! I did and my jaw hit the floor!
I was never like this. I was an absolute purist but I think now with TRUE 4K the pixels are so small that some of the old "no-no's" are rendered virtually unnoticeable and moot, while its attributes are enhanced. It's just like a lot of things from the old 480i analog days that are no longer relevant.

I'll leave it at that for now.
