I think D-Nice is going to post his settings in his thread but now that these are in the hands of owners, time to get the ball rolling

Agreed, I think he has space saved for them on the HDJ site under the ST50 in the 2012 Panasonic Settings/Issues Thread

I get mine Tuesday and I'll try to do an early calibration Wednesday evening. I'm looking forward to see how well these calibrate

@Turbe


Are the ISF modes working fine with the Controlcal software, and do you have any calibrated results from any professional ISf calibrators using your software?

multi-points (both w/b and gamma) are fine and behaving as expected with shipping f/w as development, sat/hue cms controls as expected, some odd cms lum control behavior in shipping f/w.. I want to note in regards to the gamut performance on these, I spoke to D-Nice about this and there is a wide variance for Green Luminance performance on the Panasonics, some are right on, some spike and no correction can help.


Several professionals have ControlCAL now for it, you will see more public posts definitely next week, maybe sooner from a few including Chad who got CC a couple days have his calibration (my mistake).

I will never use vivid mode unless I have strobe lights pointed at the screen. This mode is commonly referred to as "torch mode" because everything is jacked brightness contrast etc.. And results in an extremely over bright, out of touch with colors picture.

Ah ok I was wondering about that, hopefully we can get a setting for football this fall

I might be getting a 65VT50 for a personal display before too long and if so I'll be using ControlCal to enter the ISF modes.

Heard from Ed Johnson (Calibrator) yesterday who just worked on a VT50 at VE store using ControlCAL... His feedback to me: 46fL in isf Day, grayscale gamma excellent (all 10pt Controls working as expected in ControlCAL and Ed stated he was very impressed with ControlCAL's implementation), color gamut very good despite CMS Lum controls not doing anything (highest deltaE 94 is for Blue lum of 1.0 in the Gamut).. MLL .0022fL (he has Klein K-10).


He's impressed with the VT50 from this initial calibration (didn't get time to view a lot of reference material yet, just was was playing up on the wall)...


EDIT: it was a 65" VT50 Ed calibrated.

Did you get your TV yet. Panasonic is telling me that it is still on pre-order and they are not expecting shipment until the 25th. I think this is B.S.

First of all I want to say these are some initial settings I've come up on my 65VT50. I'm sure as I get more hours on the set it will change.
These settings are from my display and would need to be tweaked on a different display
I came up with these settings using an i1 Pro and ChromaPure. The i1 Pro is not very good at low levels and at 10% my de was about 4. That reading may or may not be accurate. 20% was less than 2de but the rest of the grayscale was less than 1%. The ftL was 36 which would be somewhat dull in a bright room.

Here are the settings:


Picture mode - Custom

Contrast - 81

Brightness - 54

Color - 50

Tint - 0

Sharpness - +6

Color temp - Warm 2

wmwilker,


I'm a little concerned about the 36 ft lamberts in that during the daytime, my living room is flooded with lots of light.


Have you attempted to punch up the peak whites and if so, what were your results?

They look good on my 55vt Mike (untill D-nice calibrates it next month)

Jim, I'm going to attach a txt file that was exported from ControlCal. I don't think you'll have any problem decoding it but it looks confusing. I have it in an xml file but I'm not sure AVS would appreciate me uploading an xml file. If it's ok I'll zip it up and upload it. It's much easier to read.

The file is what I've got for my ISF Cal Day settings and should convert to Custom Mode with no problem. The output on it is 41 ftL which should be fine unless your room is really bright.

Many thanks wmwilker! My 65VT50 is on the way so I have saved these settings to try as soon as it arrives. As a community service I am reposting them with some formatting as I'm sure many folk will give up too easily and not make use of your good work. A quick question: How does this brightness level of 41ftL compare to the brightness level of the pre-programmed or virgin modes?? I have tried those 2 modes in the showroom and feel they would be adequately bright for my setting, but a little push even brighter would also be welcome.
