Sanyo PLV-Z60: Shadow Detail Performance


Again, we have seriously overexposed these images. The images you see below are all from the same projector with a normal exposure, but when you click on each, you will get the larger, overexposed image. Look for shadow details in the roof, and the trees. the Mitsubishi, again, really pulls out all the details for you to see:

Mitsubishi HC1600
Optoma HD65
Epson Home Cinema 720

Some of you may be wondering why I haven’t included any comparison images from the older Sanyo PLV-Z5. The explanation is simple, almost all our images for the last 18 months have been from Blu-ray disc. The Sanyo Z5, is actually a two year old projector, as Sanyo did not replace it last fall. As a result, simply stated, I haven’t had my hands on a Z5 for almost two years, and therefore none of the same images. Based on the specs, the new PLV-Z60 should have a modest advantage in shadow detail compared with its predecessor, the PLV-Z5! Click on the thumbnail for a larger, overexposed image. You’ll find this image in almost all projector reviews. You can easily make out details in all the dark areas – the shed on the right, the plants along the bottom, and also in the wood in the structure on the left.
