You're trying to convince us sticking with pro cal settings will be a more enjoyable viewing experience, even though that yields totally unrealistic flesh tones, which is simply not warranted or wanted. Please quit trying to sway owners to your mindset.
How much of the problem with 'real world' versus 'calibration by the book' is caused by poor backlight LEDs sources?
The calibration disc reveals severe red and green clipping which results from the anemic output of these colors from the blue LED/yellow phosphor light source.
If I took all the clipping out of the red, I would be left with a very dull picture. I doubt that Sharp is alone with this problem since all manufacturers have gone with
the same technology and maybe even the same manufacturers of white LEDs.
I have my picture's white level set as green as it will go in an effort to reduce the native blue coloration that clashes with all other colors.
Pushing the 10-point calibration to the maximum, I've barely achieved my preferred cool blue/green white light that flatters face tones from one source to another.
It was easy to achieve this color on my old Toshiba Regza with CCFL backlight. I'm waiting for the return of true incandescent black body radiators...and waiting...
