Thanks! Look forward to trying these with titanic 3d this week.

Most posters seem to suggest "warm2" in this thread. Either my eyes or my panel must be incredibly different than everyone else's because when I try "warm2", whites look reddish/yellow and people look like they were all hit in the face with a tomato. Also, the blacks seem so soft when using "light" for black level. I tried "dark" for black level with "warm1" color. That combination was a bit rough, but when I adjusted the gamma to 2.0, things started looking up. Still tweaking, but again, either my eyes or panel must be vastly different from others.

Warm 2 by itself wont get you there you need wb adjusted to 6500 k

I use warm1 as a base for calibration

I tried the posted settings in this thread that suggested "warm2". So, I'm assuming those were calibrated as you suggest. Again, unless everyone on tv has rosacea, I can't watch it on my panel.

Thats why using someone elses setting doesnt work alot of times every panel varies in white balance no substitute for a calibration either diy or pro, you invested in a flagship plasma why not get the most you can out of it ?

I suspect there is more to a night setting than just contrast between day and night modes. If I didn't want it to be complicated I would have left on the default setting. biggrin.gif

Whatever. I'm just telling you what my calibrator does between Day and Night settings.

Short of a cal try warm1 or normal zero out the wb settings

I'll tell Jeff Meier you don't think I should pay for his services. Others would beg to differ.

Your results may vary...

Is this ok for custom 2D daytime setting?

Thanks
post #945 of 2130
It was practical advice since I don't think you are going to recalibrate everything to a different gamma level with your eyes cnmsd.

Anyway, thanks again scirica for taking your time to post your settings. I'm certainly glad that's it's prob only the contrast ill have to touch.
post #946 of 2130
He is correct there usually isnt a greyscale difference between day and night settings maybe contrast is the variable

I was only trying to help. Any time we try to share settings we should understand that they are panel specific and your results may vary.

And as FG would say, "That's all I have to say about that..."

I had my Panasonic VT50 65 Calibrated by Chad B on Friday. Chad was a true professional and very knowledgeable guy. I was lucky to have him calibrate my TV since I was not on his NY tour. He came out of his way to calibrate my TV. You could not find a more down to earth person. During the calibration, he took his time to explain what his was doing and he was extremely patient for all of my questions.

Wow what a big difference. Colors are more true life with accurate flesh tones and the POP I was missing before. The picture is much brighter in both day and night, but with the same great black levels. I can now notice some of the background in dark scene which I could not before and it really bugged me about the TV. He also calibrated my 3D and what a big difference with great color and more pop, even the lady of the house noticed what a difference in both 2D and 3d, plus she was getting tired of me changing things during our TV viewing biggrin.gif My TV is located in an area that is very bright and I can view the picture even if the area is very bright without any problem after the calibration.

CHAD B tested & calibrated every piece of equipment and took 4 hour to do his work, which included ISF-Day and ISF-Night modes, as well as ISF-3D. The calibrations are definitely worth the price and I fully recommend waiting for CHAD when he goes on his next tour. He has great equipment and demo material to test audio and video, so you system never misses a beat .I can now put down the remote and enjoy the TV instead of trying to make adjustments all the time.

^^^ Great to hear you had a good experience with Chad. He was on my shortlst (only 2!) of calibrators I was considering. Maybe some day I'll have the pleasure of giving him some work.

Yes that is the problem when using Warm 2, it probably will give a pinkish over tone or worse as you are seeing.

Its probably best to use a Gamma target of 2.2 or 2.4 depending on how dark you keep your viewing room, black level light, Warm 1 is a good color temp setting.

There is always give and take when calibrating, when simply using your eye and a calibration disk like WOW, the chances are there is going to be a fair amount of give in any settings.
That's why you pay a very good pro calibrator the big buck's, to limit the amount of give.

Everyone here seems to be talking about warm2 , with a few at warm 1, again I ask: what's the purpose of cool1/2 ?
No one ever uses them....
They must have some purpose other than showroom torch setting
post #952 of 2130
Those produce a bluer picture if you like those better use them youll just be farther away from the 6500 k target
post #953 of 2130
Why not make "normal" 6500k and vary in each direction from there
post #954 of 2130
the thing is none of the picture modes are 6500k warm1 or warm2 usually measure closet but a calibration is required to get as close as possible
post #955 of 2130
Normal "Should" measure closest... Out of the box
If I were in charge...lol

As I get this closer to perfection, I'm realizing that I would kill for a 2.3 gamma.
post #957 of 2130
Why isn't gamma offered in .1 steps
.2 is a weird increment
post #958 of 2130
The gamma presets are starting points, from there you can target what you want.

all doable with calibration...

if u mean as starting point, then don't worry about it as these Gamma settings don't reflect what their numbers represent... 2.2 is more of a 2.05, 2.4 is very close to a 2.2, and believe it or not 2.6 is around 2.18 - all with a WIDE gamut (color space)...

Really? I didn't know that, I just thought 2.6 would be around 2.4. It certainly looks darker than 2.4.
