Mitsubishi HC5500 1080p 3LCD Home Theater Projector Review:
Shadow Detail Performance
When it comes to shadow detail, Mitsubishi always seems to do at least as good a job as the competition. The HC5500 is no exception. The first image is a cropped scene of Gondor, at night, from Lord of the Rings. These thumbnail images are all the same, but click on them for the larger, cropped, and seriously overexposed versions so you can compare shadow detail in the buildings, and in the mountains and below them, on the far right. Also, note the subtle dark colors in some of the buildings.
Next is one of the toughest tests. This scene with Clint Eastwood, from Space Cowboys on Blu-ray, is extremely dark. The photos are heavily 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 type of photos they always look terrible, and way oversaturated).
