Hi!


I am considering the HS10 but I would like to know if the colors, blacks and image in general looks better in cinema black(less lumens) mode than in normal mode in a dark room with only 90 inches screen(I have seen the films without light). Could somebody help me?


Thanks.

I'm pretty sure that Vivid is the only mode that uses the high lamp. I use vivid for bright animation movies for the extra pop, but seem to prefer everything else in one of the other low lamp modes.

the colour saturation is excellent in any mode, but blacks are marginally better in cinema black mode and the fan is much quieter

Thanks for the answers!


I like to see films without ambient light but I am afraid for that reason...

would the HS10 too bright for me?(room without light and only 85-90 inches screen).


see you.

There is no such thing as too bright.. :) (Ok, there is, but not with the HS-10.) 90" in a light controlled room is excellent for the HS-10. I've tried zooming down to 90", and the picture is still excellent and even more filmlike. I'm projecting on a 128" screem. and sitting at 4.5 meters, and that is right at the limit of what size/seating distance to get the best picture. If I sit any closer it's easier to see flaws in the source material.


The cinema black modus is exactly what makes the HS-10 to such an excellent projector, it's got a lot better control over how much light it should put out to get the best contrast and black level out of all the different screen sizes and likes/dislikes of the users.


Good luck with the HS-10 if you get it.


Regards,

I agree, picture is better with Cinema Black mode on, and the fan is indeed quieter, but still not what I would call really quiet. It's louder than the average computer fan.


I don't think it would be too bright to watch with no ambient light, depending on which screen you use.
