So, after calibrating my ST60 a few times now, I'm trying to come to a conclusion on a final run.
I've tried 4/5/6.5/10 percent windows & the apl options of those windows.
I settled on a gamma of 2.3, but now want to experiment using bt.1886 gamma formula.
I'm running Calman 5 Ent. As I understand it, it uses your mll & measured luminance to calculate the "curve".
From what i've read if your set measures .01 cd/m2(.003fl) you should use 0.0 for your target.
Then there is also the option for white level target in Calman also.
Should I just leave this at the measured white level or should I set it to my target 35fl.
The reason I ask is because I use a custom workflow(very similar to the HT Advanced, with tweaked deltaE targets)
Does Calman use my measurement at the 100 ire pattern to set my target white? Because I set my luminance with a 2% pattern, but I set my gamma/grayscale with a 5% ire pattern, so the luminance will differ.
Am I headed in the right direction?
Thanks!

From the research I've seen the APL of your average movie is in the 17-23% range, so I would go with an APL pattern set somewhere in that range. I would imagine the difference between a 17% APL and a 23% APL would be very small.

Leave your setting for white on use measured white. There seems to be a rash of people wanting to change this, but it's a bad idea. The option is there only for very specific scenarios (monitor matching).

And which disc (of the half dozen that are circulating) have patterns in this range?

So after some reading & tinkering, setting Calam to hit the bt.1886 gamma target on my set, will be equivalent of setting it to hit a target of 2.4 using the power formula. I think I'm going to just use the power formula & use a target of 2.75.
Now the jury is still out on what patterns to use for the ST60. 5% or 5% APL. I understand the argument, just not sure if I'm board with it.
