I will update these at some point. I may also attempt a 3D calibration.

The numbers look very close to what I see in the field regularly.

Now watch a MOVIE! Popcorn beer soda red whips.... The whole deal.

Thank you Doug! I appreciate the feedback coming from a pro! May I ask...what are your personal thoughts on 2.2 vs 2.4?

Panny gamma is something of a conundrum. Even with you dialing in B\W levels with it the display set to 2.4, you'll measure lower with a probe.

I suggest using the 2.4 and be very precise when in a dark theater environment, with the B/W level controls. With the white level set to where there is little or no variation in color in the brightest whites 60 ire and up, dial in the blacks. Recheck the whites when done and do some more adjustments to the point where you are getting about 35 fl from the 100ire window and .00? For the blacks. If the blacks go green or really anything other than a deep true black at 0 ire or grey at 10 ire adjust accordingly the bias/cuts and doing this "by eyeball" is aok.

Daytime is far less finicky.

Ive tried 2.2 and 2.4, I just cant do 2.4 in a dim room, gotta be dark. We watch about 30 hours of HDTV per week in a fairly dim room, but its still lit, so I've stuck with 2.2 on the GT30.

The D7000 I had left me with the same feeling.

Yep! It is one of those things you have to change in the menu every time the room lighting is altered.

Using the ISF day/night with the night only used in a pitch black room or very nearly so does make the change somewhat easier.
