    We would view in the same way as very large JPEG images larger than monitor screen resolution, pulling and pushing with the cursor to reach every side and corners. It could work for judge the image quality.
    Some people use smart 4KTV to navegate on web.

    What is a "filmout" or "A filmout from 4K to 70mm"? This is a new term and/or process unknown to me. Thanks.

    It's simply recording the digital files back out to film. When restoration work is done digitally, a new back-up negative is usually created which can be used to strike new prints.

    Yes. Negatives are 65mm

    Whenever that day comes, the only 4K/UHD "capture" of Lawrence that I will require is my Day One purchase of the actual disc.:thumbs-up-smiley:

    Fine detail, texture, presence or ausence of edge enhancement halo or sharpness adjustments if not very well made.
    Of course a moving image it's the best to judge, but a well made screen capture can give some idea.
    I supose you belive screengrabs are usuless to judge flicker, instability, casual dirt spots. These defects are up top the reviewer to report.

    For Lawrence of Arabia I imgaine people will see a stellar work, as you were involved in the restoration from 65mm camera negative.

    I do not need screen captures to buy UHD discs of Lawrence of Arabia, Spartacus or Ben-Hur, and some others that come to mind. These are blind buys for me as I know that the discs will be excellent.

    Well, I found this on web : http://hdtv-hdd.ru/files/2016/01_04/23_54/u_files_store_1_281749.jpeg


    Look like heavy jpeg compression, and have some localized blur area here and there in some of the fabric tissue in the character clothes (look near left hand). I imagine it's due a bad screencapture algorithm.
    The UHD blu ray will be free of such blur zones, of course.

    Just finished another screening of this wonderful picture, gets me every single time. Stunning! I'll note that I watched the Japanese Sony 2- disc mastered in 4K series set. I still think Mr. Spielberg said it best: " Lawrence of Arabia is a miracle".

    Can anyone tell me if the Amazon 4K version has hdr, and if so is it dolby vision or HDR10? In reading some on this it's supposed to be a great version.
