I would rate the EPSON Home Cinema 3200 picture quality out of the box as good. Most of the picture modes were fairly accurate. Of the four different preset SDR picture modes available, the Natural mode was the most accurate.
The Dynamic mode was to brightest mode, but it was also the least accurate. Out the box, Dynamic mode did measure closer to D65 than other preset modes but visually there was a green color shift. There may be times like watching a sporting event during the day where the extra brightness provided by the Dynamic mode is worth the sacrifice in color accuracy.
Cinema and Bright Cinema product a higher color temperature with Bright Cinema producing a lot more brightness with boosted contrast.
To achieve the best out-of-the-box SDR picture, I choose the Natural mode with the color temp set to 6500K and the lamp power will be set to ECO. Increasing the lamp to HIGH did affect color reproduction but could be easily corrected with calibration.
From the remote control, you also have access ten user configurable picture setting memories. These memories can be used to store picture settings after calibration such SDR brightest mode or SDR best mode.

Above are images of a variety of videos and photos in 4K and HD resolution. Like all our photos, they remain unadjusted for color, so they do not look as good as what the projector produced. All the HD and 4K images were taken with the Home Cinema 3200 set to Natural which I calibrated for SDR viewing. Any HDR photos were taken in Cinema Mode which I calibrated for HDR.
