Depends on the accuracy of the meter and whether you did the stuff that does not use the software, correctly. Add to it that graphs also lie ...

I used an i1 display pro colormeter. I'm assuming the only way to know if it's accurate is to profile it with a spectrometer but I don't have one of those. I'm assuming the stuff that doesn't use the software like brightness and contrast?

The software stuff doesn't matter much if you messed up the other stuff. (There's more to calibration than software and hardware.)

Care to elaborate what other stuff you are referring to? I always thought you set your brightness and contrast then hook up the meter and run the software to measure the patterns, in general.

What I am talking about is for you to go take this fun quiz and tell us how you did if you feel you have a good understanding of the calibration process. You should ace it. smile.gif

There things beyong pretty charts that can be caused by faulty Display controls or extreme use of TV controls (to get low dE numbers) than can produce distortions, discoloration, clipping, banding, posterization, crushed shadow details, raised black levels of your display, things that meter's can't see.

There is an example of what patterns you have to check here, to check for these types of errors.

The man asked a simple question. The Question is ! Take a look at his charts and do you see anything that would Help him, that you can tell from his charts.

I'd first spend some time with the 10 pt WB calibration. On my D8000 I can get a nearly flat gamma plot, with GS dEs below 0.5 for the entire range. Looks like you have too much "blue" for the entire range and the gamma could be much better.

Then you can look at the CMS. On my D8000, Blue always meters a bit low (i1Pro), but I think it's probably because of low light intensity. I've recently added a Lumagen mini and it makes the calibration go really easily...

I redid my 10pt, it seems to look better now. I downloaded the new Calman and it messed up my scale and I couldn't figure out how to adjust the scale until yesterday. Now that I'm able to zoom in, I was able to fine adjust my 10pt. See new graphs, let me know what else might be better improved. I also did the CMS while I was at it.

Thanks!
