Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that brightness pops still happen on my PN51D550 with the latest firmware (1019.5), in standard mode with all processing features disabled (Dynamic Contrast, ECO Sensor, etc).
I'm not sure if we're all refering to the same problem so I took a quick video showing the problem: youtube.com/watch?v=E3_xN2xs2vA
(Recorded with Fixed ISO setting-- so no camera auto brightness adjustment)
I just made a long black and white gradient and I scroll through it quickly, thereby changing the total brightness of the scene and triggering the dreaded dynamic-contrast like feature we can't seem to turn off.
The white on the left is pure white and is there for brightness reference.
So, is this what all you guys are talking about when you say brightness pop?
This is annoying the hell out of me (especially on movies that aren't in 16:9 format).
