Mitsubishi HC6800 Projector Review

Shadow Detail Performance

Click to enlarge. So close. Dark shadow detail is very good. I’d give it the edge over the competing Epson Home Cinema 8100 and Pro Cinema 9100. As you all know I’m more concerned with blacks than the last 1-2% of dark shadow detail. As such, I have no issues with the HC6800 at all.

The first set of individual images for comparison is from Space Cowboys. This is a very dark scene with Clint Eastwood on Blu-ray disc. The photos are intentionally way overexposed. Look for the blacks in the shades, and the details in those shades in the form of the white trim. (At this level of overexposure, don’t even worry about the skin tones, as in these types of overexposed photos they always look terrible).
