Now I have not calibrated the w1070 in this manner since I am on 1.04 and the settings will not save (no point wasting hours tweaking) but I have used this set-up on previous displays that I have calibrated and it's a very welcome addition.
Plus the ISFccc can be locked, people with button happy family members will appreciate that little bonus (I suffer that affliction
) since all that standard CMS calibration work could be swept away with a few simple button presses (keep the remote away from the little ones).
Please do some research and understand what you are dismissing before claiming it unnecessary. * Although I do agree that a 10-point would be a wonderful addition.
No need to be insulting. You probably are misunderstanding what I mean.
I don't mean that there aren't any other controls that could be locked into the ISF mode that couldn't be useful. What I am saying is that the tools in the user menu are sufficient.
I've done a calibration on the W1070. The deltaE is below 1 across the range. Anything under 3 isn't discernible to the human eye. Now you can get a near perfect greyscale and still have your primaries and secondaries off. But there is a CMS. So assuming You use the CMS and get the target points nearly dead on, and your deltaE on the greyscale under 1, what more do you want? Maybe there is something in the ISF that will get it even better, but you won't be able to tell the difference, so what is the point? That is what I was saying.
If the ISF mode had the CMS locked in it and it wasn't in the user menu, then that would be something. If the ISF mode had a way to make finer adjustments to the gamma, then that too would be something. I don't see either of them as being the case.
It isn't that I'm ignorant as you imply. I understand that there are some things that would help dial the image in even more, and I do agree it's great that it's included in the PJ and you are right about the benefit of locking the settings from others, I am just saying that any improvement that you could acheive with the ISF mode, versus what you have in the user menu, would most likely not be visible, since the PJ tracks so linearly and accurately.
Just didn't want other members to go crazy upgrading their firmware just to be able to use the ISF menu like it's nirvana, thinking that what is in the user menu is rubbish.
