Monitor calibration settings.
Mar 11, 2012

I have a NEC multisync pa241 monitor and use bassiccolor and an eye one display 2 to calibrate. I am still experimenting with calibration.

Some time ago I read that good results for print matching would be obtained with gamma 2.2. for tonal response curve, luminace 80 cd/m and 6500 Kelvin set black to give a contrast of 1:200. A bit dull but in my dimly lit room was okay.

Bassicolor in their photography preset(s) give gamma L, luminance120 and 5500 Kelvin for indoor photography and outdoor photography luminance is maximum luminance! and black minimum neutral.
My custom settings now are L for Gamma, 90 cd/m, min native 0.4 and 6500 K.
What are your thoughts on these settings? I found 80cd too dim.

Bassicolor also recommend the use of ECI rgb(?) as a working space if using L as contrast curve. I use s'RGB for screen/slide shows and Adobe RGB for the rest as working space.
