My 1150 was at 37ftl which I thought looked great even in the daytime. If you increase the light output to higher then say 37ftl without clipping or overdriving the panel, would you get an increase in black level?
No. Peak brightness has absolutely nothing to do with minimum luminance levels. If you set the peak brightness to 15fL, do you think you're going to get black blacks?
Would this higher dynamic range have an impact on shadow detail?
Of course not.
Lastly if isfccc is still using the same cms, how are you able to get closer color points?
Every A/V mode on the Elites have their own unique picture profile encoded in the the firmware. Performance and Standard are almost identical, however, they do have differences. Just because each mode has access to CMS controls, that does not mean they are identical. Con you place Pure mode settings in Standard mode and get identical readings? I'll answer it for you....no.
Is the more accurate color just because of a better grayscale?
It's more accurate because Pioneer tuned it better than the other modes.
I agreed to let Jeff use my tv as a guinea pig to try all this out on. I wouldnt mind brighter image in the daytime, just so I could open a few windows, but at night there is no way I want to stare at a 42flt unless it wouldnt hurt my eyes or effect the image quality.
Ah feels good to have something to talk about again on these boards!
I have yet to see any panel give eye strain with 42fL of peak brightness in bright ambient lighting conditions. However, I would never use 42fL in low lighting conditions....that's why one has access to the ISF-Night and ISF-Auto modes
