    Damn that looks good. How did you get your set calibrated so well. Mine either looks washed out, or has crushed blacks.

    Thanks. Yeah i know the problem (if you're talking about taking screenshots ). I was fighting with that for a long time as well. For me the trick with the camera is to give it long exposure times and choose an aperture, that doesn't crush the whites. And you should use some kind of tripod.

    I actually have to 'trick my camera into giving me the aperture i want, as it's a 'semi automatic' and i can only have either a fixed exposure time OR a fixed aperture. Then i usually take a series of two or three pics with slighly different settings and use the best to post it. If you have a better camera, it would let you choose both yourself. But i'm not much into photography, so this little snapshot thingy i have will have to do.

    Also it is possible a camera has problems capturing the full dynamic range of the display, also resulting in crushed whites/blacks.

    What settings do you use? I have a canon rebel xti and I can never get my pics to look that good.

    I'm always playing around with my settings.
    - rather long exposure times - 1.25 sec. in my case
    - apperture as needed, mostly around 4.0 with my camera, but it really depends on the scene
    - ISO 100
    - everything set to highest quality (my camera doesn't have the option for raw files)
    - white balance 'calibrated' from the screen with a 100 IRE white test pattern. Though i still get a red tint, it's much better than without the adjusted white balance. The resulting colors are quite similar to what i see on my screen this way.

    That's about all i do.

    I was going to say the Panny is 700U is top notch. The pic doesn't do it justice. I can never take a decent pick of my Kuro either!

    One problem that I'm having in calibrating my display, is that certain movies look great, and shows like CNN tend to look over saturated.

    When I adjust down the color saturation for CNN, the movies look washed out.

    It's tough comparing broadcast to blu-ray and hddvd. I have two separate settings for the two. I'm going to make a Calibration Thread today. That's something this board is missing.

    I understand, But they are both from broadcast. I guess each station's signal is different and I have to find a happy medium.
