Welcome. Sorry for the low quality video.
Here you can see a Cintiq 24HD that has been calibrated and profiled with a basICColor Discus Colorimeter and basIIColor software, in my opinion the best package to make monitor profiles.
Just a short review of the monitor only capabilities.
I heard many complains about the low quality of older Cintiq and I have to admit that I was a little bit disappointed when I tested the 2010 Cintiq 21UX.
I found this display to be a good one also if it is not excellent. The default color temperature of 6500K is very close to the real value (6700K), the black is deep (with 105 cd/mq) I reached less than 0.2 cd/mq. Consequentially the contrast is very good, with a value of about 600:1. The average DeltaE 2000 of the validation is 0.43.
I got good gradients, maybe a little bit too much “closed” in the dark areas, but I have to try different calibration settings.
I tested my Cintiq in what could be a realistic usage scenario for a digital artist, with a non-light-controlled light environment.
What I don’t like about the display is the low pixel density (compared to display that we have on mobile phones and cameras nowadays) and the angle of view, which is not very impressive.
I have to investigate more about the gamut (it seems bigger than I expected).
I hope my English was not too bad to make you understand.
Your comments will be more than welcome.
Thanks for watching.
About the dark areas. I am now using CIECAM02 - dark as tonal response curve and I found it a very nice solution (now I can see difference between L*1 and L*0 value in Photoshop).
Gamut is wider than I expected. Bigger than AdobeRGB, also if AdobeRGB is not 100% inside the gamut of the Cintiq. Not as big as recent Eizos and Necs.
I don't know why ColorThinkPRO see the white as "5000K", my setting was D65 (and I can see the D65).
The validation is not impressive, but not bad. Please notice that I moved the Discus in another area of the screen before making the calibration (20cm away from initial position) and this could have effected the results.
The display has a matte/anti-glare finishing that has a texture that for my taste is too much evident (more than the SpectraView series overlay).
