    I returned my first copy, but the second was more or less the same.

    During the brighter nearly still moments (that is to say the actors weren't moving much), the video image seemed to shake from side to side.

    It wouldn't be visible for long due to an angle change or actor movement, but there definitely appeared to be some instability.

    You might think this is a high contrast 'torch mode' problem, but I only have my WEGA set for about 1/3 max contrast.

    [email protected], i did notice it on my region 2 copy. I did not find it too distracting however. I thought overall the transfer was strong and showed the films vivid look very well.

    I did notice this. I think it has something to do with the camera. I remember it in the theater.

    I notice it too, and it is kinda distracting. Dontthink its anything to do with camera, as its a constant jitter of the entire frame, so subtle yet so noticable after time.
    Other than that, amazing transfer.

    I didn't notice it, but that doesn't mean it wasn't there.
