I in all good faith paid for 1/5th more to mitigate the Projector lottery.
I can't believe we are absolutely parsing the fact that now eshift 4 is possibly sharper than e shift 5 on video content not xls docs
My full black, under signal uniformity (bright corners etc) is less than stellar but the center is decent, I feel this is fairly common.
If there were no changes to the optical block, I submit right now that JVC offer eshift 4 firmware with the old algorithm for the 990/640
I feel like I wasted ~1800.00 dollars for marketing and a step in the wrong direction.
I would have anyone interested hold off until Javs hears back on his "advanced replacement" which sounds painful.
More critical reviews of the eShift 4-5 comparison are needed to see if it negates the advantage provided by good convergence and lens MTF, assuming you are lucky enough to get one that is hand picked properly.
I also paid this money to have DI in HDR, I must say I never saw pumping on my 4910u, where I see it now, both modes. Great..
Another improvement, disallowing previous meters that worked in the past for Autocal? Do they have a deal with Datacolor? Why remove the old ones, just say "for best results use...."
JVC needs a SME/ engineer/ rep in this thread to collect these take always from all of us, as we are the core base.
I would advise no 20LTDs be purchased, if they can't get these issues resolved. 200000:1 in the center of the image, maybe.
There I wrote it, I did not want to see it in text because it real now, I am bummed when I should be floored. I wish I bought a left over or B stock because I feel like I have been duped.
I am a 20 year vet in this hobby, I work in the industry for a Fortune 50, so I hope that backs up some of my comments with the context of my experience.
