Warning! Big photos, haha. Dial-up users should run away.
I finally finished wall-mounting my 7100, it was a pain. All I can say is it was fun learning how, but I friggin hated doing it, lots of work, lol.
Anyhoo, took some time since it was nice and dark and snapped some photos of various exposures showing the ups and downs of the screen. This set is basically calibrated by my eye, and pretty much only the backlight has been set to 2 while all other options are based on movie mode.
Here's a high exposure to show the bleeding in the corners, the room is much darker but this does stick out a bit, only in dark scenes.
Here's a regular shot of what the actual room darkness is close to.
Shot of same scene and tv wall-mounted. The movie looks exactly like this when the room is darkened.
Another scene showing some more good dark levels.
Here's a little gradient test. This test is awesome, and really shows what the tv can do. I can discern the last 2 percentages, even though it is hard to see in the photo. Link here
of the test I used.
Here's another shot close to what Cleveland showed awhile back.
Random scene with more black levels
This one turned out weird, it sort of exaggerates the bleeding though. I think the battery on the camera died like 5 seconds after this shot, probably why it turned out funky.
Last one showing tv on wall and how much more room I have. I totally need some new furniture to get some carpet back, it can save me another foot or so if I get a less deep stand.
I see a white dot in alot of those, that better not be a dead pixel, lol. I'm gonna check it right now...
