Check out how the Sanyo PLV-Z2000 fared in our comparison report. So you have an idea where I'm headed in this section, let me say that the PLV-Z2000 projector, in its best movie mode - Pure Cinema - produces one of the most natural looking images, compared to projectors at almost any price. It excels in skin tone handling, and does a great job in terms of shadow details. Black levels are good, but hardly exceptional, rather comparable with most projectors near its price. Okay, let's take a closer look.

The Sanyo PLV-Z2000 Home Theater Projector: Skin Tones

As noted above, Pure Cinema is the best mode, if you are searching for the best reproduction of movies. Creative has a bit more "pop" which makes Pure Cinema seem a touch muted, but will not produce as natural looking skin tone. The third cinema mode is Brilliant Cinema, which is by far the brightest, yet still does a good job on skin tones.

The images below are all shot with the projector in Pure Cinema mode unless otherwise noted.

First, some images from standard DVD. From Lord of the Rings, Return of the King, here are images of Gandalf and Arwen. You may click on most of the images for much larger versions. Below the first image of Gandalf, you will find a similar frame shot of the Optoma HD80/HD8000. Very similar (the exposures are never the same).
