IN82 Home Theater Projector: Shadow Detail Performance 2

The HC4900 is far more overexposed than the other two images, and so you can see a bit more detail, but to do so, you also acknowledge that the “blacks” are now a medium gray. With this same exposure the other two projectors would easily match the shadow details, but still have blacks that resemble black, not medium gray.

Next! Two images here, from Aeon Flux. The first normally exposed, the second overexposed so you can see what detail is in the ground, and the dark parts of the building.

Unfortunately, the “overexposed” image would have better served you had I overexposed it by an extra f-stop. still it gives you some idea.

The scene below from Space cowboys is incredibly dark, “lit” only by a table lamp. Note the detail in the wall behind him. This is a good image to compare with the same, on most reviews done in the last year. Note the vertical “stitching” on the wall, and note that the one just right of the center of the image, goes all the way up to the top of the image. You can find four different projectors’ similar images, in the recent Mitsubishi HC6000 review.
