I'm very impressed with the new digital projectors and cameras. We timed the color for Buoy using da Vinci Resolve on screen with a digital projector and I couldn't be much happier with the color and texture - I have never had as much success with a lab. At times I was viewing the screen from a distance of about a foot, what I saw were some digital artifacts that looked to me like film grain, I liked it. Anyway, I don't think you'll be seeing giant pixels with the new projectors. Of course the color house has the ideal equipment and conditions, so I can't expect the movie to look as good on most systems. But that is usually the case with film too.
Pan judder has always been a problem. The speed of the pan can be more or less compatible with the frame rate of the camera, at worst it can be nauseating. Sounds like Darius and his operator got it wrong on that one.
