Hmm, be careful what you wish for - you might get it. When I said that, 21 posts ago, on page 3 number 10 of this thread, I didn't really expect the consequence to be that absolutely nobody would have anything to say about my lovingly compiled pre- and post-calibration gamma values for all my modern televisions ...... hey ho. puzzled

RE: 24p smooth film yes or no?

A lot of it goes over my head ,a lot of u guys have been into this stuff for years ,going from the gt50 to zt60 I don't really have much to compare things to.some people have real problems out there and I'm fretting over sharpness and contrast lol

Son of SJ - that table doesnt really say a lot mate.

I know for a fact its possible to get a good 2.19 / 2.2 gamma average out of the LX5090, colour temperature means nothing really - you are aiming for 6500k but its never 100% bang on.

Its interesting that your LG set is calibrated to 2.4 and the others to 2.2?   Do you knwo why - thats not an indepth question but at leats I am showing interest Wink

Just posted on that thread, now I've had chance to re-read them - they make much more sense now, having seen the process first hand!

Hello Interested ellisdj (who needs Steve Davis, the Interesting snooker player, anyway!) surely the post-calibration temperatures are worth checking, no? Steve got them all as close to 6500K as he could.

No, I don't know why the LG is calibrated to a gamma of 2.4 whereas the other televisions are closer to 2.2 - I was more than happy to leave Steve to do what he thought was best!

Do you know why and what that is a measure of?

6500k is white and its a measure of how accurate your white is .... Pretty sure that's correct

You're assuming that effort is directly proportionate to reward. Unfortunately, life doesn't work that way.

It probably doesn't help, but I read and ruminated on your post, Son_of_SJ, even though I didn't respond directly.
