Default Samsung Led - Dynamic mode vs Film mode

Hello,

I have a UA55B8000 LED, and yesterday I was watching BC 10,000 on DVD. The picture was AMAZING and VIVID and the colors were so real and the sky was so blue and everything is crystal clear! Howe ever when I switched to Film "Mode/Movie Mode" those lighting effects got lost and the image got little darker and ugly.

1)Why on earth some of the people recommends watching movies in Film mode in Dark room while watching it in Dynamic mode is vibrant and bright and crystal clear picture.

and in contrary the Movie mode gets darker and pale? why is it called Movie mode if it gets darker?

Knowing that I was watching the movie in a dark room so the dynamic mode was Amazing.

2) Is watching all the time in Dynamic mode decreases the lifetime of the TV or the colors of the TV?

Advantages and Disadvantages from the experts please.

many thanks

Regards,
Saad

I watch my Samsung plasma in movie mode-- because I just don't care for that dynamic cartoon look. If you like it, then watch it. With respect to decreasing the life of the TV-- yes, a small amount-- about like how you are reducing your lifespan by sitting there watching a TV when you could be outdoors running or something-- not enough to be concerned about.

No matter what mode you are in I would suggest that you calibrate your tv to the extent possible (either professional or for most of us using calibration disc such as AVIA or DVE). The reasoon being that the tv/film industry has adopted a D65 (6500 kelvin) color tempp scale. By properly calibrating your tv you achieve a proper grayscale and color temp which gives you the same image as was intended by the original director/producer etc. Dynamic/vivid mode is used by manufacturers in an attempt to make their display stand out among the racks and racks of others in a store display. The colors are highly inaccurate and oversaturated along with poor blacks etc. etc. etc.

Many people either do not realize this or prefer the 'faulty' image. If you prefer it then fine, watch it that way but many if not most people would stipulate that after a while of watching a true calibrated picture that it is much more natural and pleasing to the eye once adapted. With lcd, the dynamic mode out of the box will not hurt your display but for phosphor based scrrens (CRT,PLASMA) this can cause premature aging of the set, shorten the lifespan, and increase the risk of burn in or image retention.

TV manufacturers set the different "modes" to give people "easy choices" - - - some folks prefer a darker look; some folks prefer the cartoon like look; etc. Add to that the fact that all sets are a little different and from one manufacturer to another the differences are even greater.

None of the "modes" are intended to give a "perfect picture", but rather to address the idiosyncracies of individual viewers; so the "advantage" of any mode is simply how well it suites a particular viewier or group of viewers.

The best thing to do is disregrad the presets entirely, get and use a calibration disc, and set the display up "correctly".

The worst thing the factory presets do is black out half the picture (next is wrong colour temp, then extreme brightness, in fact, everything is wrong). It's such a waste; you can't use these ugly tonless settings, nor correct them.

Vivid may look good, but check night scenes, dark areas, by putting up the brightness control - or the contrast down - and you will be surprised how much you miss, as detail lights up on every dark part.

With careful balancing, til no more blacking out occurs, you have a pic just as the cinema.
You must sacrifice this perceived vividness, and contrast, but your eyes soon get used to any picture, and will seem as vivid as before. Try and see.
