I got some time in this week and wanted to follow up.Something that was mentioned got me thinking about why would LG make wide color gamut the default for HD.
Has anyone checked the horizontal/vertical ramps when using wide color gamut as their starting point for calibrating?
The ramps have the same characteristics, relatively, as I previously described whilst uncalibrated.
Gamut option: Wide
Holy crap this is indeed WIDE. It's basically DCI-P3, or close even if using 1.9 gamma. (pictures of wide in next post)
Honestly, I don't see a reason to ever use this option.
Noticing this I had a silly thought regarding CMS controls (see one of my recent posts if interested, it's a stupid silly theory).
Gamut option: Extended
This gives my E6 a very minor saturation boost and slight hue difference.
I'm probably going to be using this to counter balance the saturation loss from using 1.9 gamma (only way to keep 0% black and problem free yet still see 0.5%).
Just wanted to clarify, that this is based on MY E6, and as such it may or may not behave the same as any other E6, let alone any other model.
