@Smackrabbit: thanx for your response, completely makes sense. This is the first time that I calibrate the Eizo (I just got it) and the first time playing with Color Navigator, I'm still confused regarding the presets of the Eizo... ;-)
Yes, obviously sRGB and Rec 709 have the same gamut, I was confused by the Gamut select menu not offering a Rec 709 option. initially I thought I would have to select a preset mode in the Eizo OSD and then calibrate for that preset (e.g. sRGB preset), that's why I thought maybe selecting monitor native is correct... Anyways, I see the option now to manually enter the RGB primaries so I can easily define any gamut.
Since the monitor will degrade over time, I assume these preset modes will be less and less useful over time... ?
Regarding the brightness, I'm uncertain which value to choose... I don't do print work, I do mainly Rec 709 editing, image editing and some graphic art, VFX & SFX. My room is not perfectly darkened so during the day it is brighter than when I work at night... so maybe 100 cd / m2 is a good compromise. Btw, if you set the Eizo higher than 120 cd / m2 your 5 year warranty is invalid, so I guess 120 cd / m2 is their recommended max... Which now also confuses me regarding setting up an Adobe RGB target... I'll email my Eizo contact...
Regarding response curves, here's how I understand it:
> sRGB has a hybrid encoding & decoding function consisting of a linear slope and a gamma curve of 1 / 2.4 or 2.4 - a straight forward Gamma of 2.2 comes closest to the native sRGB decoding response curve
> similar is Rec 709 (linear slope + 1 / 2.22 curve for encoding), with the difference that the decoding Gamma curve should end up with an final image gamma of 1.2, a straight decoding Gamma of 2.4 comes closest. That is also the value that the ITU has now set the decoding Gamma to.
Do you agree that the Tone Curve Priority should be Gray Balance ?
