I put a custom gamma with it set to 2.3 as a start. I then ran an autocal for the full 125 point rec709 2.22 gamma and it only took about 30 minutes. I only had about 12 hours on the lamp, but at least it's a start and I can rerun autocal anytime I like. FWIW I turned my Darbee to off (but still in line) but I'm not that sure it makes any difference to test patterns as the area is too big for the Darbee to effect.
Thanks. I just ran some prelim gamut measurements and sad to say but it looks like mine cant find a wide enough gamut profile to start. it does look like Standard is close though, with cyan being the only one really inside the triangle. blue is a sliver inside. So i think i will run a primary/secondary calibration to start using cinema/standard/6500k and see what it looks like from there. would attach the reports but the laptop i use for chromapure is not connected to the net. maybe this weekend if no one else has posted theirs by then.
I still need to get used to this 1/16th zone adjustment for setting convergence. my convergence was pretty good out of the box but there are some corrections i want to make. this PJ has slightly less streaking on it than my x30 when putting light text up against a dark background. not sure if anyone has looked for this on their 4810s yet. not quite noticeable from seating distance but still a bit annoying. anyone else look for these yet? Kelvin, does your x35 have these?
some initial impressions after setting up the x55 beside an x30 with 200 hours on the lamp and flipping back and forth between hiding the image on each:
eshift2 definitely makes a difference vs the x30, though at my seating distance (1.5ish when zoomed to 2.35:1) it is pushing it in terms of being able to tell, at least in my set up. not sure the extra $ is worth it if you sit further than that as even i am having a little bit of a hard time truly justifying it at my distance (but maybe i have bad eyesight
). i also have not played too much with the 3 MPC functions, but just set them all at 35 for now since i recall reading the default 50 numbers were too high. still looking for other people's thoughts on where to set these
contrast - probably the fact that i have a new bulb in the x55 vs 200 hours on my x30 but the blacks do look better. now i have a bit of a tradeoff that is tough to measure but i have the x30 at a further throw but iris at -5 and the x55 at minimum throw distance and iris at -15. this is pre-calibration though (though brightness/contrast were set). could also be the effects of eshift/MPC i suppose.
motion: seems a bit better subjectively but i think the x30 already looked pretty good for a jvc. have not tried CMD as i dont think they need it, even for sports in my opinion. dont let this be your primary reason to upgrade.
let me know if you guys are looking for other type of feedback.
once calibration is done i will pop in TDK or TDKR for some comparison viewing.
