Optoma HD80 and HD8000: 1080p Home Theater Projector Review – Image Quality-6

One of the best, and perhaps most practical images I have been using is from Space Cowboys. I’ve been working with this slightly cropped image of the white suited astronaut (Clint Eastwood) next to part of the satellite. With a normal exposure, you can’t see any details in the satellite on the left, but with the over exposed image, you can see what I see on the screen, when watching the Optoma HD8000 home theater projector.

As you compare these, you’ll be looking at all the details in the satellite. Note that the overall exposure varies a bit. For example, the HD8000 doesn’t reveal data that the JVC RS1 does, despite the JVC RS1 exposure, overall being less overexposed.

Another good image, found in many recent reviews, this time a cropped image from Lord of the Rings, a Gondor night scene. Note the details in the upper and middle left – you can make out mountain tops, and a bit of detail below it. You also should spot some colors in the buildings, which is often lost (remember this is also a very overexposed image).
