HDR completely transforms the image. 4K makes a minor improvement. Even if you're seeing the full benefit of resolution, which most people aren't with their size/distance ratio.

Most people don't sit close enough to see the full benefit of 4K based on their TV size. Many might not even have a size/distance ratio to let them see literally any benefit in resolution besides things like chroma subsampling, and that benefit is there on every UHD disc regardless of how sharp the picture is.

I have a 55" TV that I sit approximately 5ft from. This gives me a maximum potential resolution of about 1618p. That's about 3K. And I sit at probably a closer relative distance compared to screen size than most.

If you have a 65" and you sit 8ft away for example, you're getting about 1195p, only a 10% improvement in sharpness over 1080p. Again, this isn't factoring in chroma subsampling, but that benefit is seen on every UHD, so sharpness of the material doesn't matter there.

So yeah it's fair to say that with most people's situations, HDR is going to be the much more transformative aspect of the experience. The only reason I think people are focusing more on resolution lately is that there's been a surprising amount of UHD content recently that had HDR barely any different than SDR. But that's a failure in the part of the studios. If you regularly play HDR games (which are almost all done great) or have enough experience with other well done HDR, I think anybody would realize that HDR is the much more transformative upgrade, when done right. One of the best looking UHD discs I have is Mad Max Fury Road, which actually looks blurrier to my eyes than most standard Blu-rays.

It's fantastic when you have good 4K on top of good HDR. Of course ideally we should all want both, but I would FAR prefer good HDR over good 4K. Good resolution alone will never be enough to sell me. To me that just screams that they don't know how to make use of the format.

This. Give me 1080P HDR over 4K without HDR any day of the week. It is also the reason why I would take a 1080P OLED TV over 99% of 4K LCD TVs. The contrast OLED provides adds a HDR feeling.

This reminds me of a recent video where they did a blind test comparing an OLED 4K with a Samsung 8K TV. The reviewers thought the OLED looked better.

I will never forget my first 4K purchase. It was the Sony XBR900A (excellent TV); however, the second I saw Tron playing on the 1080P OLED my jaw dropped. That's when I knew it was OLED for the foreseeable future for my "movie room" set.

Don't forget the other item in the room.

After watching Digital Videos, Analogue leaves me wanting. Most of my viewing is 1080P (or less), and Digitally taped videos make a BIG difference!
So 4K soft w/wo HDR on my set just makes Digital even better. Analogue, not so much.
(Don't forget, the 1080 P does get up-converted to 4K on current 4K sets.)

The grading is subtle in Skyfall but still the best it’s been. The contrast of some of the dark scenes in Spectre is improved over the blu-ray. I think it comes down to expectations and what people like/expect out of HDR. Personally, for these films, less is more IMO. I can totally see how some might be disappointed but It’s very obvious that the HDR grading was kept conservative. For $10 a piece, I’m keeping them.

Guess we can agree to disagree... Im usually the one to overlook half-ass jobs of upgrades to 4K/HDR and think to myself, whatever we got is still the best version of the movie. That is not the case here for CR or Skyfall, I almost wanted to pop the BDs in and watch those instead knowing im not missing anything here at all. I have just seen these movies on BD so many times and know exactly what to look for and kept getting disappointed scene after scene. Like I said though, at places they are good, at times they are worse so its a toss up or what I'd call a Botched Job.

Spectre on the other hand is slightly cleaner like QoS, and has a very paper thin hint of HDR at times (but still not very impressive by any means) and yes this one I'd say is the best version of the movie unlike the others.

I think to be perfectly fair you’d have to have them playing side-by-side on exactly the same television. Whoever did the grading is clearly a minimalist when it comes to HDR.

Im sure some pro-reviewers would do that. But as always, I am just sharing my thoughts on the quality and would never tell anybody to not buy the 4Ks... I say buy/rent the discs and make the decision for themselves.

I’m okay with disagreement but not only are you comparing HDR to SDR but your favoring 2K over 4K correct?

Haha yes Im comparing the HDR to SDR (very easy, there is almost no HDR here) and yes favoring the BDs to the UHDs and frustrated that at times they look better and other times worse than each other and that should not be the case in an upgrade. And comparatively, HDR should be a noticeable difference between the two formats which it is not here. O well, time to move on and await the LOTR UHDs!

highdefdigest gushed over Skyfall 4K and Dolby Vision. I don't see these at Apple with any HDR, isn't it supposed to be released today?

I ended up buying the discs after all because these days we're never sure whether iTunes will upgrade anything. They just say it's up to the studio and with MGM, they don't support MA so it's anyone's guess. With BB gift card and rewards, it didn't cost much per movie. Also, I need to be buying more discs since I've gotten pretty close to my ISP data cap on several occasions.

Pros ply better discussed in the AppleTV thread. Amazon is notorious for off and on HDR working. Give it time it will be back.

The Amazon app on the ATV had an update the other day. Bug fixes. Sometimes that can add as many bugs as it fixes. I haven't watched any Prime shows since then. So don't know if that's it or not. Uh oh, I haven't mentioned HDR yet. Think, think, think... Man, I got nothing. But I had an extra cup of coffee today. I can take it.

Remember that not all 1080P content is created equal (Myself, like some others im sure, have seen really sharp 1080P Blu rays that are actually sharper than some 4k discs). There's so many factors.

Also, have you had a chance to compare 1080P to 4k on an 80-88" oled? nobody said to cross compare technologies, because to be fair, you should be keeping all things equal. U shouldn't have to choose between SDR and HDR, because when all things are equal, of course the HDR will be superior and id choose it every time. You can do a full remaster/rescan at 4k and it will look at least good. But you cannot slap HDR on a low quality source and expect the same, it would likely make it look WORSE because it'll bring out all the flaws/grain in the image. HDR can also cause motion problems too, which ive read new cameras are being created to help fix this issue.

Ive never said take sdr over hdr, just that you want the highest resolution possible along with the HDR, unless your watching on a 50" tv where resolution OBVIOUSLY doesn't matter


BTW, early reports are that the new Wizard of Oz 4k remaster looks absolutely stunning. I can promise you it would not be receiving the rave reviews its getting had they just taken the old BD and regraded it for HDR. it got a full 8K remaster and then downscaled to 4K. Same goes to some of the other out this world transfers, such as Spacey Odyssey 2001 which also had an 8k remaster. NOW you throw on the HDR and its unrivaled.

Anybody want some FREE HDR CONTENT?


Disney and Verizon have teamed up and Verizon is giving its customers 1 year free of Disney+. (must be on unlimited plan which is 85% of customers, and also new customers to Fios can also get it)

Great news for those of us that also got the 3 year pre-order deal, the Verizon deal can be added to your plan, so the 3 year deal gets put on hold for 12 months so that means you get a total of 4 years for the price of the 3 year promo.

Binged the new show Living With Yourself on Netflix tonight. Weird show. Some of it works, some not, but it was interesting enough to keep me watching. HDR wise, it was fine. A few nice moments of highlight and shadow throughout, but a fairly average presentation overall. Competent, makes use of HDR in moments here and there that make sense, but the setting of the show doesn't really demand much from the HDR, so there's not really a lot there. Better HDR than Arrested Development though, which was a sort of similar "you wouldn't really expect HDR from this" type of show.

Thanks @ray0414, for the news and link. Being a Verizon customer, that is a bonus, for once.

I still regret getting rid of that particular set. It had the best 3D I have ever experienced in home.

Potter’s review of The Wizard of Oz 4K/HDR crowns it with a 100 for video. I anxiously await my copy due to arrive on the 29th.

Was it HDR coffee?

It’s true that the high end TV’s cost more but you get what you pay for. Very happy with my Sony 930E. OLED’s don’t work well in my environment (very bright room) so LED was my best choice.

My iTunes copy was 4k HDR for a couple of days a few weeks back and then they changed it back to HD. I wish I would have watched it during that time frame but it will probably be back to 4k HDR on Tuesday next week?

Competent, makes use of HDR in moments here and there that make sense, but the setting of the show doesn't really demand much from the HDR, so there's not really a lot there. Better HDR than Arrested Development though, which was a sort of similar "you wouldn't really expect HDR from this" type of show.
I think Prime has a better track record for 4k HDR content and video quality than Netflix does. There are a few really good shows on Netflix with regard to 4k HDR but many more on Prime in my opinion. Unfortunately I usually like the story lines better on the Netflix shows so I watch more of those.
