I never found a 4K projector i liked, so im testing on the LG oled C7, plenty bright, and thats exactely the problem, my eyes can simply not adapt to that light in a dark room.

For daylight inviroment no problem, but for a nice cinematic experience im drawn out of the movie by the eye strain, with the over contrasty artificial look, and i spend a lot of time calibrating and testing different settings, its just so much simpler and more enjoyable to pop in the HD Blu Ray disc, and play it on a fully compatable display who will need no convertion or other funky tweaking to a format no display is capable of displaying acording to the standard nobody really know how will be next week.

That might be your problem. I find 4K HDR to look " overcooked " to my eyes on flat panels. It looks more realistic than Blu-ray on my projector and 128" StudioTek 130 screen. Movies like Fury, 3 Billboards and Logan Lucky look closer to real life. Actually, so do " Life " and " Alien:Covenant " - which make them more disturbing.

I'd add The Great Wall to the list of great eye candy.  The movie itself wasn't great, but the picture popped!

You are right. JVC uses it for demos. When JVC stopped in to visit, we watched some clips from Great Wall, since Chris with JVC was very familiar with it on other JVC projectors. Chris said he has never seen the whole movie, but had seen certain clips from the movie, no telling how many times. :)

The best experience i had with UHD titles been on my old Pioneer plasma at full pop at 200 nit/60fl feeding it a UHD title converted to 1080P SDR. But there is simply to much variations to UHD masterings to make it a consistent experience, and it takes quite a bit of tinkering and processing to adapt a HDR mastering to a non HDR capable display souch as a projector. ( they might accept HDR, but none of them can trow 1000 nit on a decent size screen, or even 500nit for that matter.)

I wonder what the maximum on off contrast / lightoutput you can cope without blinking your eyes when going from a dark scene to full pop, or the other way around from bright to dark, without loosing information while your eyes adapt.? Whats a comfortable max lightoutput in a perfect dark HT.

I'm currently watching at 47 foot lamberts, and my laser projector can go from 47 foot lamberts to more or less a full blackout, and back to 47 foot lamberts. It's not a problem for my eyes. Neither is a very loud sound track !

I learned to hate that movie last year at Cedia. That one clip was enough.

so your compressing HDR from 1000/4000nit to 161nit, thats what ill concider quite heavy compression, im wondering how would a SDR mastering manipulated the other way look like.

To be honest ill guess thats also just in that range i set my OLED, around 50-60fl for HDR10, and with DV the confusion gets even worse.

Say what you want, it looks fabulous. That's all I care about. I have 112 4K movies and 468 Blu-rays. Done right, HDR looks excellent. At least on my RS4500.

Ill say its all about preferences, as there is no douing HDR tecnically right as it looks these days.
And fortunatly we can pretty much buy whatever we like as there is something to satisfy every taste out there.
