  2. Oh yeah you're right, that was the last 1080p model? It should look spectacular either way. not soft.
  3. Turn the e-shift off if it's soft to your eyes. You wont notice if it's on or off. The benq would have sharpness at half out of the box from memory, so turn the JVC up to 50 of 100 and see how you go. Also check if the convergence has been adjusted, is it 2nd hand?
  4. Hold off buying anything until you need it. Models change, problems arise.. Sometimes they get fixed too 😋
  5. uncalibrated, 1080P material, old phone camera, 130 16:9 image. This unit does a great job with applying hdr.
  6. The problem is we're 6 months in and it's still happening, even with firmware updates.. something is terribly wrong at present. I'm confident they'll fix it, but what about all the units out there right now worldwide?
  7. It's a real shame too because Tony's lens in particular, the only 5 element 2 air gap lens ever made, is a work of art.. It's just that projectors today have caught up and surpassed the need for them in that they have lens memory, pixel size and brightness is a non issue too.
  8. Whoa, looks like it supports the rabbitos..
  9. I think there was a time when 1080P projectors could benefit from a good lens, particularly when pixels stood out more. Today 4K projector manufacturers have enough trouble with their own lenses without adding more to the mix. And besides that I can't see a 4K pixel grid at 1 metre let alone 4 metres. And projectors are bright enough mostly to light up fairly decent sized screens.
  10. Zooming is quite superior when it comes to 4K over any lens being used. But it's an option, if the budget allows for an extremely good lens that is. None of them are 100% transparent and have quite a few drawbacks such as grid distortion, softening on the edges, pin cushion, some have ghosting from internal reflections, loss of contrast from said internal reflections, chromatic aberrations and a change in image height with and without the lens in place. Best option is a larger 16:9 screen so no lens required ever.
  11. Here's that guys 9400 settings if you wanna check them out https://sites.google.com/view/dreaming-cinema/home
  12. It's only a starting point and is not a proper calibration. The 9300 is different brightness among other things.
  13. Owen, thanks for your detailed input. But I dare say there is a vast difference in image quality when you see a decent quality lens vs something that's full of chromatic aberrations. The difference can be night and day. As you point out there is more than just the lens quality that makes the image acceptable or not but a good lens is really noticeable. The BenQ LK series projector have sublime lenses, they even proudly tout this. but these are 13 and 15K price tags whereas cheaper projector won't have such quality optics. I've seen this time and time again from perhaps 60+ projectors I've had in my showroom over the years. And if the convergence is out by more than half a pixel, wouldn't you simply move the panel 1 full pixel with the other way? I thought you said that's the only time you should use such adjustments? And that the micro 1/16th adjustments were software driven and blur the pixels? It's when you're out by just less than half a pixel width that you couldn't or shouldn't use the alignment feature? Perhaps I see the colour fringing more than the average person. The new Epson lens is seemingly fantastic when compared to other units even with native 4K panels.
  14. It's very good. super clean, up there with the LK970 and 990 I kid you not. No other 4K projectors I've seen (JVC N7, Sony 570, Sony 760 and everything native 4K before that including the e-shift JVC,s) can best the BenQ lenses only this epson and it's not even native 4K.. which is clearly doesn't need to be. Seems we're getting the 6050 model in the USA which Art claims 'has the better lens' than the 5050 model.. so win win finally for Australia! Though I'll try and confirm this with Epson. Taken with a 6 yr old phone camera, no tripod. 3.8 metres away 165 inch scope screen zoomed so about 180 inch 16:9 image. cinema mode, high lamp, mildly tweaked until I get it calibrated. I finally see what all the fuss with HDR is about too. .it's quite astonishing switching between SDR and HDR on the fly.
