Please do not use the resulting calibrated settings for one model on the other. You are better off using the default factory settings.
How well do D7000 settings translate from set to set? I know there is some panel variation, but in most cases do you think copying settings from another set will improve
upon default Movie-Warm2's accuracy/greyscale/etc?
I've been debating between the GT-30 and the D7000. The GT-30 has THX mode which is accurate, but cannot be finely tuned. The D7000 has the comparatively less accurate Movie/Warm2, but can be adjusted by pro calibrators...
But for the average joe like me, who is already stretching the budget and won't be stretching it more with a professional calibration, I'm wondering if copying others settings may actually make Movie Warm2 even less
accurate than it is OOTB.
