Sony VPL-VW85 Projector – Image Quality 4

Sony VPL-VW85 images below are from either Blu-ray, or HDTV, with the exception of Lord of the Rings (standard DVD). These images are not overly accurate compared to the image the VPL-VW85 projector projects on the screen. There are color shifts (too much yellow, in this case), saturation differences, etc.

These images are provided to support the commentary. In reality, the projectors always look better than the images in our reviews. From a color standpoint, my dSLR camera still adds a very slight green shift to some photo shoots that I have not been able to completely remove. In other words, while we can demonstrate differences in black levels and shadow details of the VW85, the photos are only approximations of skin tone and color accuracy.

Here are three dark scenes comparing the Sony VW85 (left) and Epson Pro Cinema 9500UB (right) from Space Cowboys (Overall, the Epson image ended up a touch brighter than the Sony, so take that into consideration):
