Hi Gel dont be impatient lol - I will take some tonight and get them up for you
I calibrated yesterday / last night. Its a different system to my 5090 and I havent got it as psot on as I would have liked - I needed more time and it was 1.30am.
I am now in a calibration qaundry - do I ignore the main white balance and just adjust the 10 point, or do as I did last night and use the main white balance and then tweak with the 10 point to improve greyscale.
I calibrated to 2.4 gamma -m the image is deep and lush at that gamma - only tested skyfall and some of the images on this set are glorious and I am only about 30 hours into it running in - its getting more pop all the time.
It is a better display than my 5090 by a far margin, but I dont know how much of that is down to sheer size as it really does make a difference a 65" set is awesome I do love it despite a few kwirks.

Ah excellent - cheers. I am really looking forward to seeing these.
I just looked to take a few buts its way too light - this cal is no good in a light room, it needs far more contrast
I will take some later for you
A few pics mate - these really havent come out well at all, I used a different setting on the camera which is no good for these shots, its bleached out all the colour which is weird. I do need to calibrate again so this is not exactly how I want it atm
I will take some more another day after a better cal with the setting I used before
Ah cheers mate - much appreciated. I like the James Bond one and the Tranformers one, and the all black one. You really get a sense of the size of the TV. Excellent - cheers. I will check them out again on my laptop later.
dam that thing looks sexy!!!
wish i had the extra money to get that....
I'm gonna get the TX-P50GT60B. Not in the same league but not too shabby hopefully

do I ignore the main white balance and just adjust the 10 point, or do as I did last night and use the main white balance and then tweak with the 10 point to improve greyscale.
As I'm sure you know, most calibrators left 2 point options alone and only adjusted the 10 point controls.
Maybe give this a try and compare with the results you got starting with 2 point adjustments.

The GT60 is suppose to be seriously good mate.
I have calibrated again using 2.2 gamma the same as my old Kuro - its a much easier cal and I have got my head round the system more now.
Its still tricky getting a perfectly flat gamma - I have seen other user reports where it is perfectly flat - but I think they havent run a full grey scale test and only adjusted to get it flat - thats easy - when you run the full test it changes...... However this is now a very good cal at 2.2 until it drifts
Here are a couple more shots taken after this cal - these shots are murdering this screen - the image quality is very simialar to my 5090 but on a much grander scale and it is resolved more and it is better, but there is not a country mile between the 2 at all. I am still really happy I bought this tele.
I am struggling to still get perfect shots of this screen, It was much easier on my Pioneer - maybe its becuase I am too lazy to stand up ... lol
Just on another note the UD7007 is a very special blu ray player
Wow! Those shots are looking awesome.
Wow, excellent images - cheers. Yep, the Marantz is looking good too.
Those Images are doing a huge injustice to what you actually see - very good TV and Blu Ray Player - and dont forget the 2 Chord Active (Blue Plug) HDMI's as well .......
Looking at them though they could almost be photos of the real thing - thats a good sign my calibration is correct
