Quoted from flynnibus:
The vast majority of the pix posted are awful - fact. They clearly show the iris closed as their digital cameras try to compensate for the bright lights. They are not representative of the real world light contrast of the scene and don't capture the throw of the lamps because it's so locked down. It's very hard (nearly impossible) to do with PnS systems because of the dynamic range. Yet people keep using them in comparisons
And as for exaggerating... you mean like the game with ALL THE GI OFF except the inlanes?? *rolleyes* Or if looking at glare... with all the lights off except for the sources causing the glare (backbox and LED strip)... of course the backlit game is going to look better no matter what you do when you stack the deck like that.
I won't dispute that there are some pictures that make the difference look nearly unbelievable. However I would suggest that this is generally because people are just taking quick photos with their phones in auto mode because: 1) that's how they always takes pictures, 2) they don't care or know how to take better comparison pictures, 3) don't have better equipment or want to take the time, 4) they know that even taking a lot of time and effort to take better comparison pictures won't do it justice and probably still won't satisfy those that are going to through shade (pun intended) on the product, the post, or the poster. Our eyes capture and react to light very differently than even the best camera and we all know how difficult it is to photograph games powered up, led jobs, etc.
I'll also remind everyone that Robin has asked that fans of the product not start anymore threads about it and that those that don't appreciate the product, or people posting about it stay out of the existing product threads.
