    Another GREAT 3D BD~V deal from Amazon: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Pompei...1/#UserReviews

    Ok, so it's hardly a masterpiece but it's a helluva lot of fun and GREAT 3D for under a FIN*!

    SONY to unveil a new 4K UHD BD~V player for under $300. Includes two 4K UHD Titles from SONY via a mail in promotional offer.

    Plays SACD/DVD~A/3D as well.

    http://www.highdefdigest.com/news/sh...-for-300/38124

    Release Date: March 2017.

    I'll probably pick one up for use in my 4K OLED bedroom set~up and spring for the OPPO UDP 205 when it becomes available for my main system.

    Does anybody know if it will decode HDCD? Don't see it mentioned anywhere.

    My guess would be NOT. I am more concerned about it having two HDMI outputs like the OPPOs so that I don't have to upgrade the receiver in my bedroom (an older Onkyo) as I can plug one directly into my OLED TV and the other for audio into my receiver.

    Check out the short video from AmazonUS regarding this player and it also lists further specs https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/A...nandscathed-20

    The video, which can be accessed by clicking onto the top left side of the Amazon blurb, appears to show TWO HDMI outputs.........YEAH!

    For the money and with 2 FREE UHD Films included [as a mail in option] in conjunction with the rigid chassis and heat sink accoutrements, this looks to be a winner!

    Just took delivery today of three more 3D BD~Vs: It Came From Outer Space, Warcraft and Stalingrad. I still haven't watched the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 3D but caution potential purchasers to start stocking up before these 'endangered species' 3D BD~Vs become eBay "shockers."

    Ironically, a LOT of new Hollywood fare is still being released in 3D [& Imax 3D] to theaters, so I really wonder how imminent this cessation of 3D BD~Vs for home video release is?

    I have been buying a lot of 3d discs from Amazon. Most are under $10 including shipping. I get my OLED55C6P tomorrow finally. I have a few dozen more on order and a dozen already in my collection so I will be busy for the next few weeks.3d discs.jpg

    Congratulations, sellerbird. I can't wait to hear your assessment of OLED.

    And yes, there are some enticing 3D Bargains from Amazon and its third party sellers.

    Bluray.com lists complete lists of 3D movies: http://www.blu-ray.com/3d/

    Am currently watching for the first time on the OLED TV in 3D AVATAR. All I can say is that 55" bedroom TV is a freakin' planet and I am sitting there in utter amazement encapsulated in that surreal environment. Let it be said that Avatar in 3D is an EVENT you'll never forget.

    HOSSANA!

    I really am excited for you, sellerbird.

    In all honesty and I apologize for gushing but I never though I'd experience 3D in the home as awesome as this!

    I've been a projection 'man' most of my adult life but if I could upgrade to that LG OLED 77 incher, I wouldn't hesitate to forego the extra width/height afforded by my Stewart projection screen in my main listening room.

    Tonight's 3D Event: Titanic.

    Wonder if I'll get seasick?

    BTW, sellerbird, if you have an older receiver, it may not pass 3D (like my bedroom Onkyo receiver) so if you DO have two HDMI outputs, I suggest you output one directly into the OLED TV and the other [for audio] into your receiver.

    No need to apologize for gushing. I have seen Titanic in the theater and it is amazing. I live close to Disney World in Orlando and I am an annual pass holder so I go frequently. Most of my favorite attractions are in 3d so there is no doubt I will be gushing too. I just ordered another dozen 3D blu rays this morning since today is payday. I still have another 20 or so on my wish list at Amazon. Only six more hours to go before Fedex shows up.

    Well it is pretty easy to see why you are gushing. It basically gives me goosepimples. Now I have 3D video to go along with 3D audio. My system dumps on an IMAX theater. I watched part of Pixels and most of 3D Rarities tonight. It is like dying and going to heaven. Simply outrageous. Tomorrow I will calibrate the set to the Rtings suggestions and see how that goes. I will update the firmware and install the software on my LG smartphone. Then I plan on watching my all time favorite movie The Wizard of Oz. Should be a good day tomorrow.

    Thumbs up 3D Came from Outer Space!

    Hey 3D TV heads! Just in case you had not heard, producer Bob Furmanek and his team have released their fifth 3D restoration, one of the best 3D classic film on Blu-Ray: It Came From Outer Space.

    Information about the restoration.

    A recent review.

    Where to buy it in America and Europe.

    It even was awarded a prize recently.

    Here are their other four restored titles:

    Dragonfly Squadron

    The Bubble

    The Mask

    Gog


    Get it whilst you still can (or before it gets YOU)!

    CONGRATULATIONS, Sellerbird. It just ain't TV....IT'S OLED as in O', I've been LED to the promised land of WOW TV. And yes, sellerbird, you're NOT in Orlando, anymore.......that 55" powerhouse will transport you to planets, landscapes and distant worlds where you've never been before in the confines of your own home.

    And aptly put that you finally have the 3D TV capability to go with your 3D sound system.

    As Dr. Frankenstein exclaimed in the Karloff original: It's ALIVE!

    The 3D titles have literally been pouring into my house........wonder how long they'll continue to manufacture them? And a few have the distinction of being UHD 4K and 3D combos: i.e. 'Ghostbusters' and the upcoming 'Passengers.'

    Ang Lee's new film "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" is a first in that SONY Pictures is releasing it in a 60 fps rate [in lieu of the standard 24 fps] and is being offered as a combo 4K UHD/3D BD~V/2D BD~V set. http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=20532

    First off it is Seilerbird with an I.
    I don't care how long they keep making 3d discs, there is a giant back catalogue I am shopping and I have a 3D camera on order so I can make my own movies.

    OK, Seilerbird with an I

    Another hearty recommendation. JUST WATCHED "PAN" TONIGHT in 3D........SENSATIONAL!

    http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Pan-3D...142383/#Review

    And perhaps by shooting your own movies in 3D, you'll start a revolution. Makes me want to get back into filmmaking. Actually, that's what I was born to do. BTW, what type of 3D camera do you have? VERY CURIOUS.

    3D FOREVER!

    Thanks for the recommendation, I have added it to my want list at Amazon. At the rate I am going it is going to take me forever to finish off the list. I don't have the camera yet, I am starting off with the cheapest option I could find. Not wanting to start a revolution, just looking for some fun.

    Nah, I suppose when I wear my reading glasses that's four eyed enuf for me.

    That phone takes stills. I want a 3D movie camera.........it's probably $20K for 4K resolution..........if they even make them for consumer use. Most 3D movies are up conversions.

    BTW, just added another 6 titles to my 3D collection. Am beginning to scrape bottom. $8~$15 each (and MOST have that $3.99 s/h charge). Oh well, do you see what OOP SACDs/DVD~As are commanding on eBay? Ridiculous!

    BTW, I ended up ordering 8 3D titles....some were as low as $3.88 + s/h from Amazon third party sellers. All in VERY good to Like New condition.
    I know life moves but I am a still photographer, I don't want to mess with video. I will leave that to the experts.

    Me too and I'm usually only off by a few degrees. I'm trying the "link" approach rather than "image" on this one, sorry for the advantage.

    I did both. I have thousands of Kodachrome/Ektachrome transparencies and used to do slide shows with dissolves and soundtracks. But my first love was motion picture film/editing/even writing music for my mini dramas/comedies. And yes, seilerbird, a singular picture does speak a thousand words if well executed. I gave up photography when the cable channels started to go wild with the likes of National Geographic and the History Channel in HD. Who could possibly compete with that........the most exotic of locations reachable only by helicopter or hiking.

    And now that we can actually shoot 4K on our cellphones and edit on our computers, I've given it up altogether. But then I suppose running a complicated business in 2017 will do that to you.

    BTW, I miss the viewfinder which is sadly absent from today's digital cameras. It really taught me how to frame and focus........two 'good' habits which have remained with me even to this day.
