I just got my X1 and have been experimenting with various things. I see that most recommend the film mode, but the presentation mode is much brighter, why not use it? Also, there is the color temp selection, any recommendations there?

The presentation mode will give you a brighter picture but will wash out the colours. I just use the default colour setting and it is great, mind you I haven't used any set-up discs yet. Enjoy.

should normally be set at "lowest" as that setting is closest to D65K, the color temperature standard in the NTSC system.

I noticed that the presentation mode has more crawlies than the other modes. It is not as smooth.

It's been explained in another thread that the only difference between Video and Film mode is that Video has a higher gamma setting. So between those two modes, use whichever you think looks the best. Video mode is just a little brighter.


Presentation mode uses the white segment of the color wheel which makes everything a lot brighter so you can use it in a room with some lights on. It can be useful for watching sports or other casual viewing when you don't want to sit in the dark.
