As Phase said, the z-axis causes the view angles to be more pronounced no matter the tilt. If I'm standing up and my eyes are level with the bottom of the TV, I get better angles. It's unfortunate where I have to put the TV in the room, but frankly I'm always front and center and my wife couldn't care less
Also Phase, expert 1 seems a bit too yellow/green on my set.
Great feedback and and looking forward to the pictures. I tried to do some pictures, but they never turn out "good" enough to show what I want. Need a new camera?
You're actually about spot on regarding the Expert1 vs Expert2 calibration. Expert 1 is more "yellow"; an observation made by most people when trying to calibrate as close to 6500K as possible. And if you view a really well photographed movie with lots of naturally lit scenes, this gives the most color depth, because sunlight actually leans to the yellow. Again, these settings are for a baseline reference. On top of that, there are a few color standard issues I always wrestle with for TV calibration. BT709 is what I used. But what about SMPTE and Standard color gamuts? There is a continuing discussion regarding do we attempt going for a pure white or something else? In photography you would want a purer white since you are usually going to print on a white paper and want to take that in account. But this is quite different because we are displaying a picture and lighting it from behind. Even with film there is the "color" of the lamp used in the projector. There is also the actual "color" of the backlight in the TV we have to deal with. And there is the tendency for our eye to perceive bluish light as more white. Ask your mom or grand mother about "bluing" for the laundry. It is a somewhat subjective thing.
Anyway, that is one reason why I did Expert2 a bit cooler, and it is way better than the settings out of the box at least, so owners can choose and perhaps get a DVE or Avia media disc and make refinements for the differences in their TVs.
I am curious though. What source material (AVIA, a movie, DVE, grayscale) did you use where you saw the yellow of Expert1, and was it for OTA/Cable or HDMI? I ask because OTA/Cable was much more difficult to obtain a good calibration.
Again, thanks for the feedback. You gave the kind of feedback that helps everyone.
