Cheers chaps. At 8-10 feet I'm more worried about field of vision and being able to see and take in all the tv. Kinda like the difference at the cinema from the front seats to the backs. Do you find that an issue ok, can you see and watch all the screen ok? Ta
Honestly Rocket, its not an issue. With a good source you get no issue with PQ, and your eyes can "take in" the full picture within your field of view. At that distance the screen takes up enough of your field of vision to actually give a great sense of depth with a decent source, but your not so close that the periphery of the image falls outside your field of vision (which I think is what you worried about?).

Got some of the ST60 here:
Was going to wait till I'll had it calibrated before posting pics, will have a go later but keep in mind its pre-calibration (and their only taken on an i-phone).
That is okay mate, I take mine with my 4s. I have a few tips, keep the flash off and don't zoom in too much. Keep background light out. Take quite a few to get some really good ones! Try different Blu-rays, the best pictures are normally taken when things are not moving too much on screen.

Right then, had a quick go and pasted below, caveats as follows:
a) Daytime and the curtains are linen white, so fairly high ambient light
b) Not calibrated yet
c) taken with i-phone
Spent some time last night playing around with the calibration section of the Viera App and managed to get some further improvement on what was already a pretty good picture based on the 'out-the-box' presets, but just by having a look around the calibration app and from reading Strapped's feedback about his VT post-calibration it's pretty clear there's still more to be had out of this panel than I've currently managed.
Wow! They are awesome! Thanks very much! You must be delighted? Can you do some night time pictures too? And some with black in it? Cheers - much appreciated!
This one has some blacks in there, but there's ambient light so some reflections on the left hand edge of the screen.
Will ttry and take some night pictures over the weekend (provided Mrs M doesn't grumble about me interrupting her weekend viewing!).
That is fantastic! I love the detail. Cheers.
yeah, that's what I mean. TThanks pics look great, although I can only see two, the others say unavailable?
Think that's because I deleted them off flicker after posting them - have put them back on Flickr now, they're showing ok on my phone but may not be working for everyone. Try refreshing your browser and if they're still not there I'll report them later.
Nah need to repost pics mate

3 more cracking pictures here:
a couple more now the room's gone dark (and mrs m has trundled off to bed):
Ah cheers! These are really great! That bottom picture you can see the depth and detail of the TV! The black levels are perfect! Cheers. If you get some more free time, could you do some animation like Toy Story? Thanks.
Love the top one too!
They look awesome mate, I would be over the moon with that tv
Thanks guys. The contrast looks a touch over-cooked in those shots but that's mainly the iPhone camera showing its limitations in a dark room. Still think there's more to be had out the screen in terms of getting the right balance between contrast, luminescence and colour, but that's hopefully what calibration will bring, but in the interim it's still a great screen to watch.
Mind you, 'Kill Bill' is such a well produced BluRay it would make my granny's 'Alba' CRT look great!
Gel, if I get time to dig out some Pixar over the weekend I'll post some shots.
