I think many of us are in the 4-7 range for color and I was just concerned about the jump up to 10. I've been toying with the idea of touching up my calibration lately, but had been putting it off, because I didn't think it would require much change. Now, I will probably have to break out the gear and do it (yes, Peter, I'll PM you), if for no other reason than to satisfy my curiosity about where my values might need to go The can o' worms was "tweaks to the -83"
. Everything I can see/measure on the -83, along with reviews and testing, has the -83 measuring just about perfectly neutral. That's a holy war for some folks, so I just refrain from getting into discussions over whether or not any of the PQ controls on the -83 need adjusting - especially with higher end displays such as ours.
I wish I had access to a premium generator, so I could actually measure it, in my configuration
No worries, I knew you were just having some fun! I agree, Michael does a great job calibrating and
the teachings to the client along the way! I'd recommend him to anyone that could use his services. I'll gladly have him perform tune-ups on the 141 on a regular basis, or on any new, "calibration-worthy" panels we buy in the future.
The only adjustment made to the -83 was Contrast was adjusted to -3 (I just now checked). I know that Michael had made a similar adjustment to the Pio 51FD
back in August. I saw onscreen with my own eyes the improvements he made adjusting the 51FD, and I know that his -83 adjustments were also for good reason. After watching the majority of The Dark Knight
this evening, I can't remember if it ever looked this good. The IMAX scenes were particularly impressive, with more perfect-looking colors and detail than should be allowed by law. But that's the way we roll around here...
To all the new 141 owners who don't yet have ControlCal - get the hours on your panel and get a great calibrator - you will not
