Gamma and Local dimming question
I have an LG 55LW5300 that was calibrated a couple of years ago. The TV has three Gamma settings: 1.9 ?, 2.2 and 2.4 . The tv menu for the calibrated input shows a gamma setting of 2.2 although the Calman report shows an average of 2.06. I'm assuming the calibrator used the 2.2 scale and adjusted in software. In addition, the local dimming feature was left on. I have never been happy with this because I seem to be particularly sensitive to blooming and halos; particularly on end credits, etc. I have found that turning local dimming off, changing the gamma to 2.4 and adjusting brightness and contrast with a test disc gives me a picture I'm happier with. My question is this; does changing the Gamma and local dimming have any adverse effect on the other calibrated settings (i.e. grayscale, white balance, color balance, etc.) ?
