That's quite a dogmatic statement!
So, I'm inviting D-Nice or any other calibrators to chime in with their opinion on this. For that matter, I would like to hear from ANY member. I simply want to know if the difference between ISF Daytime and the Pure Mode is drastic, with the ISF yielding substantially
more pop and brightness.
Well... HW and I often end up on opposite sides of an issue.
But, this time I have to agree wholeheartedly with this statement about ISF mode:
I specifically referenced that if you are looking for "POP" and "Brightness", the template that Pure is based on versus the ISF modes will result in very different results from adjusting their settings. Technically you simply can't get as much pop or brightness from Pure mode as you can from the ISF modes. Don't take my word for it, ask any one of the pro-calibrators including D-nice for their opinion.
I'm not a pro calibrator by any extreme stretch of the imaginaion
But, using DVE/AVS discs and my BDP-83, I cannot tweak PURE mode to come close to ISF(night), in terms of pop/brightness.
For this very reason, I feel (IMHO) that the ISF modes are worth activating and using vs. Pure.
I read the link Zues provided regarding Elab's comments. While I value Elab's opinions and the data appears in order to validate what he says - to my eyes, a display calibrated using ISF(night in my case) looks better than if calibrated using PURE.
The difference is dramatic!
Contact Turbe, drop $75 for ControlCAL bundle, plop in D-Nice's settings (or any other reputable source that provides them on the ControlCAL forum) and check it out. If I'm wrong - you've pissed away $75. If I'm right... you're going to be very happy!
I'm betting on the latter.
Then (HW close your eyes
) after a little while, get a pro calibration, or better yet - buy the gear and do it yourself. This is, after all, our hobby - right?
