Good question. Using ISF mode in my 141 there is only one gamma 3. And that imo is why there is a 9 pt gamma (27 RGB controls). I have never seen a perfectly flat gamma with my 141 or 150 before you start calibration your high/low temp settings. Why I use the 9 pt gamma controls that are in ISF mode, is because of the Luminance mainly. However by getting a perfectly flat gamma there are other benefits. Those benefits show up in my latest ISF mode settings. imo doing and using the 9 pt gamma controls results in a more life like picture. What the human eye sees.
Also unlike a lot of ISF for hire calibrators, I do not have a pattern generator. The reason why I do not use a pattern generator is because of the cost ($1600.00) and the fact that I calibrate from the source. ie my panny BD55 and pioneer BD51. Yes I have read that some for hire calibrators say there is really no need to do that, but imo, in the case of the pioneer BD-51/05 you must calibrate from the source. Just look at my two latest ISF calibrations for my BD55 and BD51. The settings may not look much different but just by changing one of those settings changes everything.
I am sure you know all of what i am saying, but I am going into a little detail because of others that are trying to learn.
