Let's talk about Gamma

Postby DoomRater » Sun May 03, 2015 10:59 am

I've been wanting to correct my monitors so that they look as close to each other as possible but one thing that keeps getting in my way is that talk about gamma. Reading up on it gave me the understanding of why 128 should not be half brightness according to photo standards, but attempting to adjust some of my devices makes them FAR too dark. Basically, should I just go with a 1.8 setting instead of a 2.2 to better match to a tablet that... ultimately seems to be happy with a Gamma of 1.2?

Perhaps a camera shot of my computer setup, if it can capture all the weird going on with these screens might help.

Gonna bump only to ask - are your Brightness settings in both of your machines the same? My only suggestion is to just experiment with your other device until it somewhat matches your first device.

...unless you don't need this anymore, in that case, screw me ;p and add one more to the gallery.

I specifically toyed with the gamma while making sure the brightness and contrast were fine tuned enough for me to see differences in black and white shades. But i might as well toy with other gamma settings until I find something comfortable for me.

I read "Let's talk about grandma".

I was gonna say "she's a lovely old lady who gives me icecream for my bday" :P

My thread died faster than Gamma 1.8.

And search snake, but Microsoft Search should do the trick just as well.

Am I the only one who thought that the post before mine was by Caligari because of the 8-)?
