Do you still think I should give the WOW disc a try. I don't even know if I have the skill set to use it. Would it make a big difference then copying your settings? Thanks.
I got the AVA709 on a USB drive ready to go for calibration after break-in. But can someone point me in the right direction as far as what settings to put the D7000 in and what slides to use for break in?
I've done a quick cal of Cal-Day mode on my display, copied the settings over to Movie mode and compared the results. I was interested in the custom color setting since it is common to both. All other controls 2-pt WB, 10-pt WB, etc. can be set individually.
I didn't try flattening out the gamma curves just yet, but gamma in Cal-Day mode is lower than movie mode. Average gamma = 2.24 (top, movie) and 2.09 (bottom, Cal-Day) This is with gamma=-1 (movie) and -2 (Cal-Day) and remember that lower settings of gamma on this display increases gamma.
WB and color temperature were very close between the two modes but this can be adjusted separately for the two modes anyway.
Color space matchup was pretty good except for red (and therefore magenta as well). Filled circles are Cal-day and X's are movie. dE(uv) between movie and Cal-Day were: 12.4 (red), 2.1 (green), 1.0 (blue), 2.1 (yellow), 2.7 (cyan), 16.0 (magenta)
|Average gamma (fixed APL)||2.1||2.28|
|Peak White||35 ftL||28 ftL|
