|Color Temp over IRE Range (Post calibration):|
Overall, that’s about as tight and nice a grayscale calibration as you will see.
Mike’s Notes: Color is quite accurate on Normal color space. No need for CMs with that setting. Any other setting has oversaturated greens, but might be more useful for 3D. Cinema 2 is too red and Photo is about the same. Game is pretty much the same as Cinema 3, which is pretty good.
Quick cal of User 2 w/Custom 5 color temp reduces the green, but only results in 39 more lumens than default Dynamic setting and looks similar to it.
