I was wondering if anyone could help me out.
I am using Calman 5 with a i1Pro meter on a 60" Kuro (no CMS, just a colour slider and a tint slider - for adjustments). I wanted to compare the colour accuracy of my "user" mode vs my "standard" mode. Both modes had been previously calibrated with the color and tint adjusted by use of the color/tint pattern on Spears & Munsil disk using the blue filters.
Yesterday I fired up Calman 5 and went to the "Quick Analysis" template and opened "Colour Checker".
When I compared both my "standard" vs "user" modes it was obvious that the user mode was the most accurate..... I had all colours with errors below 3 with the exception of green and magenta with were just over 5.
So, sticking with the "User " mode, I decide to adjust the colour and tint slider to the 0 position and re- took the readings again. NOW, I saw even better results across all colours.
Leaving the colour and tint slider at 0, I put the S&M colour and tint pattern up and decided to check the pattern again using the blue filter. Reading the colour and tint with the blue filter it was apparent that it was off by +2 on colour and Red3 on tint.
So what do I trust the S&M blue filters or Calman colour checker??
Any insight would be great.
