Sanyo PLV-Z3000 Projector – Shadow Detail Performance

The next set of comparison images is from Space Cowboys. This is a very dark scene with Clint Eastwood, on Blu-ray disc. The photos are intentionally way overexposed. Look for the blacks in the shades, and the details in those shades in the form of the white trim. (At this level of overexposure, don’t even worry about the skin tones, as in these type of photos they always look terrible, and way oversaturated/too high contrast).

First image is the PLV-Z3000, followed by the HC6500. Next is the the Sony VW60. The last three in the sequence are the Sanyo PLV-Z700, Panasonic PT-AE3000U and the Epson Home Cinema 1080 UB.

The PLV-Z3000 does a really good job on revealing details in the window shades, definitely bettter than most of the competition.

Again, from Space Cowboys, this is a cropped image. The right side is very bright (so dynamic irises will not be effective).
