Calibration report using these settings:

Below you'll find the settings I found best for viewing the Panasonic TC-L47DT50 in a dim room via the HDMI input with a 1080p/24 source. Your settings may vary depending on source, room conditions, and personal preference. Check out the Picture settings and calibration FAQ for more information.

Calibration notes: The Panasonic DT50 offers very little controls beyond the standard Brightness and Contrast and so a full calibration isn't possible by most users.

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
