Epson Home Cinema 1080UB – Shadow Details 3

By the way, ignore the color shifting in the dark areas. I’ve already explained elsewhere, that when I severely overexpose images, with long time exposures, color shifts are significant, and don’t accurately reflect what you see on the screen.

From Space Cowboys, this image of Clint is in a very dark room only illuminated by a down facing table lamp. The first image is the Epson, of course, while the second one is from the JVC RS1 ($5400), and the best until recently. The third one, is the Panasonic PT-AE2000U.

In the images above, look for details in the blinds in the back, and the richness – blackness – of the blacks. You will note, that the shadow details are similar on the JVC and Epson, but the Pansonic comes up a bit short, by comparison. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to get exactly the same exposure.
