situation was simple.. it annoyed me to no-end that a lot of the features Sony has is simply put.. best turned off in most ISF calibrations.. why do we even pay premium for the "Sony" brand if we just turn them off?
so anyhows, back in the day of searching and educating myself how to calibrate.. proper grayscale.. color temps.. and specially correct Gamma setting.. all tied hand in hand so yea, I just calibrated my set with some options turned on and yea..first step is getting proper gamma.. then work on the color temps after.. basically, proper Grayscale is the way to achieve a "perfect" color pallette
MY SET SPECIFIC CALIBRATION:-+ 40xbr2, HD Cable, HDMI (this is probably best used for movies/hdtv) +-
Power Save: LOW
Advanced: (this is where i differ from ISF'ers, most of these are turned off for ISF.. I blend my style with ISF and the "steaming rat")
BLACK CORRECTOR = ***OFF*** xbr'ers.. i cannot emphasize this enough.. this feature is dangerous.. it doesn't help blacks at all.. it CRUSHES BLACKS.. turn on ACE which increases the dyanmic contrast ratio without crushing it.. BC just crushes blacks..
ACE = Medium
Gamma = high
Clear white = low
Live = off
Color Space = Wide
bbias: -5-+ PS3 via HDMI +-
only difference and you have to toggle this on the PS3 itself
RGB RANGE: ***FULL***
BD/DVD Video Output HDMI: ***RGB***
Brightness: 66 <-- has to be bumped up once toggling the RGB range to full on the ps3 or else your blacks will be crushed mercilessly
anyhows, that's my calibration settings blending the ISF and SteamingRat philosophies.. scientific and yet turned on the "features" which most of the time is turned offD65 Color Temp even with the extra settings onHow about the relative R-G-B levels? yep, spot on as wellThe Gamma Curve
so yea, try it out you 40XBR2'ers and specially those of us who have a PS3..
let me know what you think
and oh.. if you have something other than 40xbr2.. I doubt it'll work -.- difference sizes, etc etc.. everything's askew :P sosrsly
