In Reply to: Calibration by jim isham
A calibration is supposed to give natural colors.
I remember years ago, the first calibrated picture I saw was a NASCAR race, and it looked dark. The grass wasn't the bright green I saw on the other sets. I talked to the calibration expert, and he asked me to look at a different panel that wasn't calibrated. I told him that I thought the colors "popped" and were bright and impressive.
He pointed out that the calibrated TV had darker grass, because that's what you'd see if you were there in real life. The colors of the cars weren't oversaturated, because that's not how it was if you were there to see it. He noted that while a retailer would want to make the picture catch yor attention - the calibrated picture is to most closely match the colors as they were filmed.
So if you're unhappy, I don't think it's unreasonable to express your dispeasure. If people look sunburned, there's obviously a pretty bad red "push" that's in play here. Most of the managers I know at your retailer would rather have you happy, so see what they say.
