I have just taken possession of a Fuji PDS4242, and I love it.


I would like some advice from those with a similar unit as to the contrast and brightness settings they have tried in regard mostly to DVDs. I get some shots where I lose some of the darker detail, and I'm sure that it's just a matter of playing with the screen setup. I understand that room lighting etc will play a part, just looking for some useful tips.


Thanks in advance.

You should note that the best option is to get an AVIA or similar DVD in order to calibrate the unit properly.


That said, you can get the set pretty close to ideal using your eyes...


In most cases, sharpness should be set almost to the lowest point possible (around 10% of capacity).


Contrast is usually ideal at around 40% for most displays. Brightness should be adjusted so as not to crush whites or blacks. This is quite difficult to assess without 0-100 IRE steps, so use your eyes and try to correct the system by slowly adjusting the values (contrast & brightness) until you get good results.


If you have gamma adjustment settings, those could help in bringing out more detail.
