I was hoping that someone could help me with a definitive answer to the question over which settings to use when calibrating a SmallHD monitor. Specifically I own the Focus5 and the Focus7.
It would be great if someone can either confirm that I’m doing the right thing or tell me what I should be doing so that this post can hopefully serve as a straight-forward guide for anyone looking to do this in the future.
I already own an i1DisplayPro which I use to calibrate my grading monitor through a BlackMagic Decklink 4k card so I figured I could use a similar process on my SmallHD’s.
I know that on the monitor I should disable the calibration LUT and I’ve been dialing the backlight level down to 0%. Beyond that I’m not 100% sure of which DisplayCal settings to go with and so far have been using the Resolve preset.
Specifically I’ve been using the following.
Display & Instrument
Instrument: i1 Display Pro
Mode: LCD (Generic)
Correction: Auto (None)
Interactive Display Adjustment: Checked
Whitepoint: Chromaticity coordinate (set automatically when using Resolve preset)
White Level: As measured
Tone curve: As measured
Profile quality: High
Test chart: Auto-optimized
Source colorspace: Rec709 ITU-R BT.709
Tone curve: Rec. 1886
Rendering intent: Absolute colorimetric with whitepoint scaling
3D LUT file format: IRIDAS (.cube)
Input encoding: Full range RGB 0-255
Output encoding: Full range RGB 0-255
3D LUT resolution: 33x33x33
I have had a look around elsewhere and struggled to get a clear answer so apologies if this has been repeated and I’ve missed something. Thanks in advance for the help!
