Viewsonic Pro9000 Projector - Flesh Tones

At times skin tones do look good, but more often than not, unless the image is dark, a yellow green shift is visible. In the Bond, and Lord of the Rings images below, I used User 1 as set up by Mike – by the book.  I had better luck tweaking Sports mode (which is less yellow), for most of the other images.  Remember we’re not talking about been as far off as any number of projectors’ when in dynamic modes (or whatever they call their brightest mode), but still not as good as most other projectors.  Again, we await another, newer version.

We plan to reshoot these Bond images with the new projector when it arrives, and plan to leave both sets up, so you can see what kind of improvement can be accomplished in just a few weeks.

Leeloo from The Fifth Element. Her skin tones looked excellent, definitely better than the image above would have you believe, (and it's not bad), throughout.

A nice dark scene of Oxford, from X-Men: First Class. Respectable shadow detail found here.

Color in this image could be a bit better. Of course, not an ideal scene, Scarlett Johanssen is bathed in the room's fluorescents.
