I have calibrated my Samsung SMPX2370 monitor with:
Monaco Profiler by Xrite.
The new i1Profiler by Xrite
The default profile that comes with the Samsung driver install.
Problem: With any of the above profiles: Dark shadow areas on my monitor, using sRGB as the working space, that, formerly, with an actual tube sRGB Sony display, showed little detail, now, have, on the monitor, tremendous detail. The monitor shows MUCH more “shadow detail” than an actual print that is properly honoring the sRGB source space.
Hypothesis…the backlit LCD display cannot actually reach the low luminance values of a tube sRGB display … and…profiling tools cannot help because it is the physical device.
Has anyone seen a similar issue with back lit LCD displays where sRGB is embedded in the image and printed to an accurate profile?
