I calibrated when I had close to 40 hours on the lamp, and know that lamp is not stable until it reaches a 100 hours or so. I will recalibrate then and will do some more testing. For the time being, I will continue to use my custom curve.
I am also using the latest FW and wanted to tets for myself what jetsen was seeing. Granted, I am not an ISF calibrator and have no tools other than Masciola patterns. My JVC has
been prof calibrated by the one and only ChadB. While he was here he calibrated an SDR2020 profile as well as an HDR profile, but since I can only get 55 max nits. SDR2020 is my prefered viewing mode for UHD content.
Well, some intersting results imo. I honestly don't know what I'm looking for, or if it even matters. But I tossed up the color clipping patterns. Nothing looked abnormal, or wrong. In fact, white was clipping at exactly 4000 nits with Mode 3 - 400. Changing Modes and TL didn't really affect the clipping much. Worth noting was that Red clipped before any other color at around 1000 nits everything else (except for White) clipped at 2000 nits.
I don't know if the clipping levels change with actual content, but thats what I saw when viewing the Masciola color clipping pattern.
I rewatched some scenes from Lucy and was till impressed. I agree with
that the PQ looks to have improved from beta FW to public release. I was experiencing a flicker in dark backgrounds on the John Wick 1 disc. This problem hasn't been eliminated, but has been greatly reduced. INTERESTING FACT: If I engage CMD Low (motion smoothing), the flickering black background is almost 100% eliminated.
Overall I am once again very happy with the Oppo and eager to see how they will continue improve the HDR Off Bt2020 mode. Wish I had a brighter display to take advantage of HDR bt2020,.. but this is a sacrifice I can live with.
