I've been experimenting - Finding the best way to view my D7000 photos on a TV.
The results with the standard AV cable (Composite- yellow and white phono connectors) into my old TV is not to good. JPG burnt onto CD played through the TV onboard DVD player is no better.
My brother had recently purchased a Samsung 55" LED (latest spec) TV so I took my D7000 along for a play.
The difference in connectivity was staggering:
1) AV composite cable – Poor picture / grainy / severe moiré
2) HDMI – Much better – no grain / less moiré
3) USB Incredible – The photos are crystal clear – Better than my PC!
This experiment is very encouraging – It suggests I could blow up my D7000 pix to 55” wide posters without pixilation. The camera performs even better than I thought.
Can anybody explain what causes the difference in reproduction quality using the various TV connections?
