Samsung C6500 Calibration and Testing

  Review Specifications Calibration  


Calibration Notes: Blue tones lacked consistency and were difficult to dial in perfectly in finding color balance to D6500. There was a considerable amount of adjustment to perform. Blue tended to be too weak in the upper end of the white balance scale and too strong in the lower.
