I'm sure Tyler will reply for himself with the technical details later.
But in answer to the original post from
where he said
Any suggestions for best custom HDR tone curves for LG C9?
Go for default, 50%@1000nits, 40% or 60%@4000, 30%or 40%@10000?
Or what values do you suggest for best image? Anyone tested different settings? I would like to hear your experiences.
The SHORT answer, avoiding any kind of argument, giving the same point we're now at, would have been:
"Yes, we like 50%
@10000"! The end!
That would have been shorter and easier, and bizarrely ended with the same result. Probably pointless? I only say this since the whole discussion we've had (just quoting Tyler's info from the UK shootout) is pretty much agreeing with his starting point
, without actually mentioning that it all agreeing with his starting point
We therefore haven't really moved from square one on this (ignoring the "or 60%" and "or 40%" of course). So it hasn't really yielded much in the way of "alternative settings that other people have tried", so probably less useful than Mrfabio had hoped for. Or maybe he's pleased that he had the same idea
IIRC at the UK shootout last year, they were surprised to see that changing the default 1000nits roll-off down to 50% matched the Sony mastering display much better than the defaults did, but found it interesting enough to share just the idea. So that you lucky C9 owners who can change these things can try it. As to the rigour with which that conclusion was arrived, again Tyler will have to answer on that point.
