This is a Before shot, to test out the sys native, without CraigM's anti-ringing mod. Which I plan to do ASAP, but you know this time of year, may not get to it before New Year's...

Wow! Look at the dynamic range on that shot

Nice choice in screenshot, shows off a little bit of everything

The colors were done by eye, they had to be redone by hand, to get rid of the everpresent red push Mit has always believed in, God knows why. I had to spend lots of time with their PerfectColor in User, ferretting out what each of the 6 color controls REALLY did, since they don't do as they are labeled.

That's in User, which had to be combined with service menu master Color and Tint. It took awhile -


Then since I don't have any way to stop down either my cam's exposure nor its shutter speed, I had to lower the contrast substantially, to keep it from blooming. As such, I then had to also lower the master color level, which is of course inextricably bound to the contrast level.

The Br could stay the same, amazingly enough!

This was off my Dish DVR, from a recording on broadcast TV the other night. The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

Bob,

Did you pay yourself when you were done?

Many of us wish we could do a pro calibration to our own sets like you can.

I understand.

Not everybody has the time necessary to man the learning curves involved.





I am and will for now stay still available to do these kinds of things to your sets too. I am still a career calibrator, and as long as a certain number of those viewing these threads hire me to do paid work, I and my fellow calibrators can survive staying so.

But lots of people want to do this on their own rather than hiring a calibrator to do so, even after absorbing all that we calibrators have to offer and have shared with them, here and on other threads like this. You have no idea how many hours a week I spend tapping away at these keys on other threads, giving out free technical information about calibration and repair of big screens.


If the DIYers who read this kind of thread predominate too much and thus swamp the quantities involved and leave the owners who are willing to pay us calibrators for such services in too small a minority, then of course I and many others would have to look elsewhere for career opportunities. The demise of CRT tech in RPTVs is already signalling the end of an era there, for sets that require image structure alignment...

Hasn't happened yet. Paid gigs are still not totally plentiful, requiring my repair services to take up the slack. But enough are still happening to keep me here for now, at least.

Keep your fingers crossed -

Cliff... your G90 shots *rock*. They are sharp, and the gamma is spot on.

It's funny that digitals look better on screenshots than CRTs. I got a Panny AE2000 for 16/9 content and internet browsing mainly. Although it has nice intra-scene contrast in high-APL scenes, and I am sure screenshots would look probably nicer than CRT screenshots... well... you know what I am going to say... :-)

Mr,Bob, you should do what Craig Rounds does and use a lumagen scaler to calibrate the mitsu. he leaves all the mitsus enhancments off and all the setting to default and calibrates through the lumagen. excelent results and you can take care of the overscan too!

One of these days...

For now I am struggling just to get the time to do Craig's anti-ringing mod, and still buy - no, make that shop for, even - presents for my loved ones. While still working for a living...

Have you heard of this thing called Xmas? It makes everybody temporarily crazy, makes their dollars disappear from their pockets, and makes all avaliable discretionary time shrink to nothing...




But for some reason I just can't stay away...

Cliff, your shots knock me out! Same for Clarence. I can still see that big one of Mel Gibson, as if it were on a billboard -

How do you do it? What kind of cam, and what system do you use to get them up here???

Your crispness seems limitless, and is preserved even when you do the oversize pic size. HOW???

It was actually pretty good...

All of the original voices... great movie quality PQ. Plus I literally laughed out loud in a couple of spots... for example, when Puss in Boots got mesmerized by the fuzz ball on his Santa "Claws" hat.

In the 2nd screenshot above, Gingerbread Man is delivering a pick-up line... "Did you get hurt when you fell from heaven?" Later, he feels sick and pukes up a Hersheys Kiss.

Good times. Man Clarence, I bet it must feel good to be watching movies on that schweet G90 knowing that you have a minty set of tubes on the shelf when the time comes...
I am looking for a G90 now but I doubt I will ever find one I can afford. Maybe when all you enthusiasts get done with yours I can scoop up an old crusty hulk and spend the next five years trying to nurse it back to health and find tubes for it.

I have a Verizon Fios DVR. I've had it awhile and had recorded a few things on it some time back, but never got around to looking at what I had recorded. This morning I fired up my lowly 8500 and connected the Fios box into my Moome card using the HDMI cable. Could not do a good pause without a part of the menu, so I blanked as much as I could of the bottom of the image.

These shots are done at 1080I. I'll have the Blu-Ray in the loop later, and then will get back with 1080P. I gotta admit, much to my surprise 1080I is not bad on my lowly 8500.

Hello Mike... You have posted quite a few very impressive images with your Marquee.. In the last few images from the BluRay movie Casino Royale', I feel that there is either an issue with too much black crush being caused either in the image itself on the projector or with your camera you use to take the screen shots with. There is a lot more low level detail that should be in the image.

I put on the same BluRay movie and took some screen shots so you can see what I am referring to.












Thanks!!

Thanks Brian. I took a few quickies earlier to show I'm back with a Blu-Ray player. It's a Pioneer that needs an firmware upgrade. I'll get back to that shot tomorrow after I get all things lined up a bit better..
