the #1 Calibrator when it comes to the Panny's: Posted 6-9-13
"I'm at Robert's right now doing VT60 calibrations. The lowest I've measured is 0.0012fL.BTW, the brightest VT60 I've measured in ISF-Day is the current one I'm working on.....40fL
. Everything else has been 35-36fL. The goal of Day mode was to have the max light output, without sacrificing accuracy, and a 2.0 gamma. The VT and ZT could not do it in their ISF modes. THX Bright Room can get brighter than the ISF modes. However, the loss in accuracy violates my accuracy work eihics.... and I'm sorry but even THX Bright Room isn't match for the F8500 when it comes to image brightness"
So even with 40ft/L you still can't reach the FULL ON/OFF CONTRAST
of the F8500 on the VT.....where did Chad get his 52fl reading from Dynamic mode which you can't even get close to the low black with or maintain accuracy?
Also since last year Samsung provided a FirmWare Update 1112.1
that fixed the Floating Blacks bug so that's old news that was already corrected, Meanwhile the VT & ZT
both lack Full-3D @1080
, because they only scan half the lines making it normally around 540
, and thus 3D suffers with Resolution Loss
as a result. So what's the point of having a 3D TV that can only do 3D as well as Passive technology which also suffers with 540 Resolution...
Not to mention who Won the 2013 Value Electronics Shootout
for the HDTV of the Year (Samsung F8500
The Experts liked the Panasonics more by .1
overall, but even after telling the Audience all about where the Panny's shined and were a hair better with measurements the Audience still decided that the Sammy looked the best by .2
overall thus giving it the win!
So in the real world when you put the numbers aside and just look at the sets it was obvious that the Samsung was a better looking HDTV. That's why the Panny guys always get mad because although its better technically in everything by a hair except for brightness it still looses the Human Eye Test
Which is ironically hilarious I think, afterall I watch with my Eyes not some special Calibration Tool.
