I've had my 59d8000 for 2 weeks now, and its a keeper. I've been watching this thread even before I got the TV. Now I think I want to try one of the calibrations settings here, but I'd love to get your advice as to which one I should try, once you know this about me:
I have to admit I kinda like the Standard picture mode I'm using now. I put the Cell Light down to 10 during my break-in. I also like Relax in some situations. When I had my c8000 I tried various calibrations from the boards and, to me, most were a little to sepia or gold for my liking. They made watching CNN kinda strange, like it was a movie. If I'm correct to call the opposite of that "Vibrant color" than I more of a vibrant color kinda guy. I watch 60% standard TV stuff (including news and live stuff) and maybe 40% sports and movies. I also know that I do like a kind of high degree of contrast. I feel like my current Standard setting is also producing to much graininess.
If possible, I think I want to avoid going into the SM to activate the cal-day and cal-night. I'm a little scared to do go into the SM, and I've heard there could be a bug with the cal settings and then coming or going to 3D, is that right?
So how would you all suggest I proceed?
