Quote:Here are a couple of tips for improving the black levels & contrast:
- Make sure to set your brightness to 120cd/m2 manually, using that interactive calibration part to do it. For the calibration settings, tell it to use "Native" brightness or whatever, instead of letting it color correct to achieve 120cd/m2 brightness.
- Be conservative with your RGB channel tweaks... as you lower the channels, it causes white to be less bright. That means you need a higher brightness setting to achieve 120cd/m2 (i.e. lighter blacks). If you aren't too picky about the color temp, just change it slightly to take out any tint (ex. yellow) and use something closer to the native. You can even do calibrations using the native whitepoint, which would basically just correct the gamma to 2.2.
- Yellows mentioned trying the actual ColorMunki software to do a calibration as well... you may have better luck with it! Just be sure to change the preferences before going through with the calibration, as there are a few important things to change (ex. backlight type = White LED).
