**** Below is about UHD HDR Only, not SDR ****
So after spending more time with the NX7, it is just border line bright enough in my space. Very unfortunate TBH.
But "Oh My" does the thing throw a beautiful picture.
It would be absolutely breathtaking on a "smaller" 130" screen with 1.3+ gain.
The DCI/Rec 2020 filter offers the best color I have seen from a projected display. But there is just no way for me to use on my screen size due to an additional 23-30% light reduction with the filter in place.
When I get the new bulb (Free extra bulb for purchases before March) I might throw that in just to see if my current bulb is just not that good.
Here is hoping!
Unfortunately I have a few things fighting me.
I cant be at short throw (Brightest throw for projectors)
I dont have an anamorphic lens, A "good enough" one for this level of projector is in the $3500+ range
I dont have a lumagen with even more extensive HDR Tone Mapping options.
I dont have the NX9 with 300 more lumens.
I will continue to play with the tone mapping options, but Alex and I did adjust a lot last night and the previous settings I had already established from the first night still seemed to be the best in the end.
I will have one more go at it tonight, then I will just have to wait for the bulb and see if that fixes it or if not hope it doesn't dim further till my next yearly upgrade again.
