Would one of you pros/semi-pros please give me (the dummy) a quick lesson on what the settings should be. Thanks in advance Mike
Not a pro/semi pro by a long shot, but just want to say this question probably won't get answered -- not because we're unwilling, but because we're unable.
Some say the iris should be at ~150-160. Some say iris should be at zero (wide open). The only ones that know for sure are the calibrators, and maybe even among them there are differences of opinion. Also, they are doing other things in conjunction with the iris setting that we may not have the ability to do without their test equipment.
I will say this, out of the box, even in Movie mode and the starter settings Eliab provided, my set was really bright and tended to hurt my eyes in a dark room. Even putting the iris (SB Gain) at 0, which I understand is wide open, cuts the brightness level. If I toggle between on/off, I can see the light level drop. So, I have my iris at 0 and my contrast in the 40-50 range. That works fine for me.
Sorry I couldn't be more help, but I've never seen anyone have a definitive answer to this question.
