as you said, the additional light output is good for very large screens, and it is also good if you have a grey screen. With this calibration you get a brilliant picture with deep blacks using a grey screen (I do it myself).
and I agree, dynamic is not acceptable and it cannot saved with aforementioned calibration, unfortunately. Only normal can be calibrated to perfect colors.
I have also tried calibrating Normal mode a few weeks ago with the help of a colorimeter, and i was not particularly excited.
To start with, the colour temperature of the whole greyscale is far too high.
In addition to the colour brightness and contrast settings, i needed to set colour temperature to the max setting -6.
After i managed to have a respectable greyscale, i moved on to the colour adjustments.
Compared to Colour1 mode which is very accurate to the REC709 specs, all the primaries and secondaries in Normal mode are way off from the ideal coordinates on the CIE chart and if you only use a blue filter to adjust saturation, all the colours appear very unsaturated when watching video material, so you need to compensate for this by increasing the colour setting from -8 (adjustd with the blue filter) to around +3.
All the colours are inaccurate, but not as bad as red which is both very unsaturated and has a very wrong tone. Using CMS i was unable to make Red look respectable no matter what settings i tried in the CMS.
Also, Green is too saturated, but it can be brought to a respectable level by the CMS.
I am really curious to know, if someone has really managed to match the Red in Colour1 mode and Normal mode, and how this was done!!!!!!!
