Mitsubishi HC6800 Projector Review
Click to enlarge. So close. The Dark Knight. This overexposed image shows subtle details in the outer dark room. You can see minor details to the sides of the “picture window”, and the walls in general. These walls are not meant to be black, nor are they when viewed with the HC6800. At the same time, nor were they too light a gray, which happens with some projectors with less impressive black levels.
The exposures are all a little different, but you should be able to appreciate the combination of shadow detail and dark blacks.
Look for the dark details in the woods on the shed on right and the wood structure on the left.
Bottom line Mitsubishi HC6800 Blacks and Shadow detail
The HC6800 combines impressive dark shadow detail with good, but not “ultra-high contrast” black levels. Combined that make this projector better in these areas than average projector but still visibly short of any of the better ultra-high contrast projectors, several of which are at or slightly below the HC6800′s price point. Just remember, none of the ultra-high contrast LCD projectors that are price competitive can match the brightness, with the HC6800 being almost 20% brighter than the brightest of these.
