After a bit of banter between myself and Douglas Quaid about picture quality of CRTs. I taken some new screen shots after it was fully setup. First of all, no screen shot can show you the detail on offer. This is because i have to pause the shot, plus i hand held the camera. The camera is a normal 35mm instant type. The film then went to Max Spielmanns. I then scanned the pictures into my Umax flatbed scanner. They are then compressed into Jpegs!. What the pictures can show is the subtle shades and the vivid colour/contrast etc. The contrast and brightness were not altered in any way between shots. First up Dinosaur. This shot shows the vast contrast on offer, from total black to bright white. The blood shot eye looks more bloodier on the real screen. Second up. Dinosaur. This shot has more shadow detail than shown on this shot. But it still shows the velvet black level and pure white. Third up. Gladiator. This is to show how much detail is lost in the "normal" type "screen shot". Look under Russells hand, his thumb area, notice it appears to have no detail?. Then look at the next shot!. Fourth up. Gladiator. Notice as i near the screen, how much detail is really on show from a CRT. Fifth up. Gladiator. Now you can see the full detail under the hand. The flash tones and detail are all there. This is visable from the seating position. Normal screen shots miss this. Sixth up Another subtle shot. again some detail is missing from the screen shot. But look at the flesh tones and blue cloak. This shot is just to show my new DVD shelves i've just installed. Plus it shows how the screen looks from my seating position etc. I've added this shot to try to show the detail under the log, but there is to much camera shake!. Never mind!
