Do you mean he thinks what comes out of the puck is an accurate representation of what was fed into it? I would agree with him. If you are saying he thinks what is fed into the puck is an adequate representation of the source material it was created from, I would agree with you. I am not sure what an "accurate representation of what the source transfers should like like" means. Its a hybrid sentence. It is indeed an accurate representation of the source transfers. He is right. What does "should look like doing in the sentewnce. If he is saying the transfers are an adequate representation of the source it was made from, I would agree with you depending on the source material. For example, if you scan a film and shove it into the puck, the scan will probably may be an accurate representation of the source for reasons of bit rates, lengths, chroma subsampling yada yada. If the source, say a Bluray upscaled to 4K, it is both adequate and adequate in and out of the puck.

Perhaps the simplest way to describe Sony's first 4k offering is that, in comparison with the same high quality blu ray titles, the download service quality is occasionally marginally better, often no better, and in several cases worse.

Whether this is due to poor original transfers (which I doubt), or (much more likely) the current compression required to achieve a zippy multi-hour download, who knows. Perhaps h.265 will help.

Now, I just purchased the Sony 4k FDR-AX-100 camcorder. While not perfect, the resolution this provides, while still compressed, is much much better than anything I've seen on the FMP.

I've posted the same in that thread.

For anyone that has a fast 4k capable computer they want to connect to their 1100, here's a link to a YouTube clip of about 5mins of 4k footage from the camera


Pardon the cliche's garden shots - I put it together for my wife who's is traveling overseas (but she cannot watch it since YouTube is blocked in that country)

YouTube's required settings definitely compress, so you will some artifacts that are not there watching directly from the camera to the 1100. You might need to go YouTube directly to choose the highest resolution is the gear icon doesn't appear in the embedded version. Go full screen and take a look...

This was edited in Final Cut Pro X..the problem at the moment is how do I actually play the complete project short of having a powerful computer connected to my projector, which I don't.

The new Sony X10 player states a firmware update will allow transfer and playback of XAVC-S files from the FDR, but I generally like to edit my videos. FCP currently doesn't support outputting to the XAVC-S format, only Sony Vegas does (and even there I'm presuming it will work on the FMP-X10)

Maybe the Nuvola player, but I really don't want to buy something just for home movies. Plus, only the high end $699 unit has separate audio out, which I would need since I don't have an HDMI 2.0 AVR...

Bleeding edge is challenging..

Thrang,
Your video shows as private and unviewable. :nerd:
Thought it was only unlisted...try it now and let me know.

3D Glasses again.

These are no longer sold directly by Amazon, and you have to buy from a 3rd party seller:
http://www.amazon.com/Optoma-BG-ZF2100GLS-Active-Shutter-Glasses/dp/B008PQJXFO/

On the product page, it points you to a "newer model of this item":
http://www.amazon.com/Optoma-ZF2300GLASSES-Shutter-Rechargeable-Glasses/dp/B00K8BK6EQ/

But right there on that product page:
"Optoma ZF2300 glasses are compatible with BC300 emitters only; they are NOT compatible with the older generation RF emitters"

For anybody that hasn't given up on 3D, what are you buying?

I keep going back and forth on that camcorder. I want it for shooting kids sports, but wish it were 60p for that purpose. The next up Sony 4k camcorder that DOES shoot 4k60p looks like a floating movie rig on your shoulder compared to this one though.

I hate to think what the picture would like like if it were really 60p! :) I don't think you meant a p to follow that 60.

I probably have more 3D glasses than 3D discs at this point. I may buy soe 3D discs in the future but I doubt I will feel the need to buy different glasses.

I'm still buying because I don't have enough for typical viewing parties--I'm not switching to different ones, I've got a mix of IR and RF now. Well, I have enough with the $20 PS3 glasses, but they won't work in my environment without the external emitter and the problem is getting that emitter to the front of the room.

I have tons of 3D discs and there is still plenty of good content being released. Just finished watching Hobbit 1 extended in 3D last night on a new bulb with D-BOX and it was fantastic.

I think Mark is pointing out the correct terminology would be 2160p/60 or just 4K/60 since all 4K video is progressive by the existing standards for the 4K and UHD formats. In any case the 'p' does not come after the refresh rate when listing the video format (e.g, it's 1080p/24 and not 1080/24p).

Though our projectors show, for example, 1080/60p if you look at the signal info in the Information menu

Interesting, I've just ordered 2 ZF2300 to see if they have compatibility with the newer Sony/Xpand Vesa RF adapter. If they work with that I could farm off my old IR/RF transmitter to my other projector and use my 5 pairs of ZF2100's with it. That would give me 4 pairs of Sony RF and 2 pairs of ZF2300's to use with the 1100.

Sony has been known to incorrectly label things. In their 600 manual, they refer to the contrast enhancement control as increasing sharpness.

Obviously a resolution can be expressed as either progressive or interlaced depending on what it is. the most common where both are used are for 480i and 480p and today we have 1080i as a HD broadcast standard along with 720p and by cable et al also 1080p. that's the place where a p or i belongs. what follows could be a frame rate such as 24 fps or for video in essence a refresh rate of 30 or 60. No p. its frames or cycles.

Still buying the now "older" ones since they are compatible with my Monster emitter. I have about 10 pairs now (including two sony) so I should be good for the long haul.
