Guess what I started tonight?



I never finished, but I got the "current state of things" logged.

I've got some tweaking to do. I've never done this before, so I am learning as I go.

Luminance - dashed line is target, the RGB lines show where each primary color differs from target, and the yellow is the average of the RGB.


Gamma - again, target is the straight dashed line.


RGB Levels - on the top, ideal is all three are together and on the 100% line. I am still trying to decipher what the bottom purple stuff means.


CIE - I've got a few that are out of spec quite a bit that I will try to dial in.



So I've got some tweaking to do. The good and bad of the JVC RS45 is that it doesn't have CMS (color management system), so I really can't dial in the colors without a 3rd party piece of hardware, so I will just do gain and grayscale. So less to tweak, so less time consumed in calibration, but less to be able to correct too. I've heard that people get great results with the grayscale and gain corrections with the JVC.

Here's hoping!

Tripod is holding the meter I just got. Nothing that a little painter's tape can't hold in place. I of course did everything with the lights off, door closed, and I put a light blanket over the laptop and my head to keep stray light out of the equation. Sort of like an olde time camera where the guy would put the black curtain over he head while he took the photo...

I think that this is what Mark uses... wink

I think home theater is the best and safest way to go. Your home theater is beautiful.

Nick,

Have you noticed a significant difference from before your calibration and after?

i did use the black curtain when in photography school; worse for someone who has never done it is seeing the image reversed on the camera's ground glass; up is down and left is right.
