The first image is from Aeon Flux, a dark night scene. Overall the Sanyo projector gives a nice dark image, but there’s detail in the shadows just about everywhere. The photo is slightly overexposed so you can look at shadows in the lower part of the roof, and around the green bushes, and in the edges of the road. Clicking on it provides a closeup of the upper left side.

Next click to compare the Sanyo, on the right, with the Optoma HD8000 on the left. The image is further overexposed so you can look at the darkest areas for differences.

From Phantom of the Opera, this cavern scene is a good test of shadow details. You can also find these images on almost all reviews done in the last year, for comparison purposes. Click on the thumbnail image for a large version that is very overexposed to reveal the details that the camera loses at normal exposure. Look for all the details in the dark areas in the walls, and ground. The frescos on the walls are easily visible, the structure of the various ducts in the walls, which are very dark, are distinguishable, which is more than a number of other projectors can claim.
