Thread: The Viewsonic monitor from the MO...

    Default The Viewsonic monitor from the MO...

    eh guys,

    thanks nick for organizing the MO, just some question as this is my first LCD, is the black supposed to be that way ? or other LCDs are better in this aspect ? the black is abit washed out due to the backlight coming through abit.... hmm.... any expert in LCDs that can tell me where this monitor stands interms of the black point ?

    just calibrated it with my eyeone, and I put luminance point at 140 as recommended.
    Dun think setting it anylower will lower the black point as I already tried setting brightness and contrast to the lowest and there was no difference.

    cheers

    Most LCDs are like that. Only a few I think IIRC Ezio ones don't display black this way. My Samsung 910T also is like that. However, my office's LG L1950SQ don't have this problem.

    It's due to the fact that this display is very bright and contrast ratio is high, What I recommend for printmaking, is to reset to factory default, set to preset of 5400K and then PROFILE, not calibrate for one version of the profile.

    I wasn't used to bright LCDs before but I realise it has a bit of a plus point, to help me see some shadow details which can't be seen on CRTs.

    After applying soft-proofing, it will look alot closer.

    Hope this helps.


    Cheers,
    nic

    think it is 78 and 35 respectively.

    just glancing over to the imac 20" 2 tables away, I can tell that the imac can display a blacker black, even though it is not from the apple premier line of displays.

    Is the resolution only 60? There is only this option for mine.

    I think he probably meant that instead of adjusting the target white point (i.e. 6500K) when calibrating, leave it as native point which is 5400K for this instance.

    Luminance of 140? Gee, are you blind? Try something lower like 110.

    And use v3.6 of the software as well.

    my EyeOne also very weird when doing RGB calibration. when sensing a white block, the RGB being read shows R and B all the way to the right, and G all the way to the left.

    by the time I get them adjusted to the centre, the white becomes a turquoise tinge!

    I already said. even when I put the contrast and brightness to the lowest, it is still brighter than the imac 20" in the studio.
