on the right side you can see its bright with the contrast at 90 its almost blown out at 94 detail gets better and at 98 its better than 90 but not quite as good as 94.
It's nearly impossible to tell from a photo of a TV... but it's likely that area was extremely hot and over-exposed in the original video.
it was over exposed but how comes lowering the contrast from 98 down to 94 brought some detail back but lowering again to 90 it was brighter than 98.

the standard is 99 then you need a meter which i believe you can get a basic one from about 50 and up to real money :o

Automatic Brightness Limiter, My G10 Panny would top out with contrast at about 85%, after that it would get duller  ???.

I think the Brightness Pops i see (much Reduced now) on the Sammy are due to a very odd imlementation of ABL  ;)

Chromapure does indeed help adjust Greyscale and Colours and i have found it to be excellent. :)


What version of Chromapure do you use and what meter. ?


I have 2.2.5.39180, needs updating just not got round to it yet and my Meter is the Eye One LT. :)


I like the look and specifications of this one, do you think it can be used with Chromapure. ?

It says it can only be used with Calman and CalPC but maybe they just say that so you buy their software.

Looking on Amazon i think that might be a Spyder 4 but i'm unsure of the differences between a Spyder 4 Elite which costs 158 and a Spyder 4 Pro which costs 114, anyone know the differences. ?

It has been a while since I posted on here (been a little busy), but thought it was time to sign back in, after a chat with scotthehat ;D

The difference in the sypder 4 elite and Pro is in the supplied software. If you are going to buy a third party software and not calibrate for high end prints, the spyder4express and spyder4tv are all you need, as you will only really be using the meter, which is the same across the packages.

The meter linked to is a spyder4 in a OEM form, and with some additional calibration profiles. ChromaPure can license any standard Spyder4 meter. ChromaPure do provide an alternative to this, but use retail meters.

The i1Display Pro is a very good meter (especially in the upgraded form). I am that confident in it, that I use it as part of my calibration equipment when completing professional calibrations.

There are other meters to consider if you are just getting into calibration that will give you a cheaper route in i.e. the spyder4, we even have some second hand licensed profiled i1D2s for complete entry level (they are not on the website at the moment).

For projector calibration would you say it's better than a Spyder 4. ?

I see it comes with a diffusion filter for taking readings directly from the front of the lens rather than off the screen, useful for black level measuring, price wise it's only a little bit more expensive ( even pro form ) than a Spyder 4 so if it's more accurate, better in some way, then i'd choose it over a Spyder 4.

Mine would be used for projector calibration, so a question is, what are the differences between a Spyder4 Elite and i1 Display Pro, which one is more accurate. ?
