Screen Shots Page


Recommended Posts

Ok so upon recommendations from other forum members, this thread should be ok place here.

I thought a screen shots page would be a good way to compare and share settings and show what we're seeing with our setups.

Have uploaded the pics. 9540, 9541 and 9542 are captures from HDTV - OneHD and 7HD. The rest are from the spears and munsil montage footage.

These images are pretty much what I'm seeing. I could have spent more time setting up camera but these are pretty close to what I actually see, about 90% of what I see. This is a calibration of brightness, contrast using a disc and the colour using my eye. I have not used my spider3 calibrator just yet. No doubt my settings will change again when I use it.

I've used a canon DSLR EOS450D and imported the images into corel draw 14, then exported at 950 pixels wide, 300dpi. They're each about 280-310KB in size.

Some TV shots from OneHD and 7HD which look pretty good btw. SD tv is a little ordinary on a big screen.

Screen is Majestic Evo3D 1330 high x 3152 wide scope screen. The images are all 16:9 HDTV format and measure 1330 x 2367 which is about a 108 inch 16:9 image.

Would it be possible to make this a sticky thread so folks can add to it as they wish?

CRT may be old but there's a fair group of people that think that a well setup 9" CRT still throws a better image than Digital.

Any why are Sony digial owners not allowed to post? D-ILA is JVC only, the technology is LCoS, the Sony variant being SXRD.

I thought everyone would understand it's a screen shots page, don't worry about what technology it is.. post any screen shots from any projector technology.

WOW! absolutely sensational images Woodlake! It just goes to show what a good screen and a calibrated projector can really deliver.

Thanks Rich, I totally agree.

You don't realize how far out the colour can be until you go ahead and do a calibration.

Excellent woodlake! Where did you get the Tron Legacy trailer?

Hi 709er :)

The one on screen was from about a year ago now! I do have a more recent one though.

They are generally from either Apple or Yahoo (apple usually has the edge on quality). I just use this site to keep up to date.

I have 3 trailers play randomly before each movie I watch. Gives it a more authentic cinema experience when we watch a movie :lol:

Note - I use firefox and a user agent plugin to be able to download directly. PM me if you need further info as its a little bit OT.

PS Great work on your room too - getting close now ;)

Thanks Woodlake. I guess with our wireless broadband capped at 6 gig, downloaded trailers are not an option :(

One of the VERY few disadvantages of living in a rural area :huh:

I know it's not perfect, and could be improved in a number of areas, but for the moment I see it as being "good enough". What most impresses me the most is the detail - blowing up the image you can - for example - see the individual people quite clearly in the rice paddy....
