Panasonic TC-P50GT25 picture settings

Below you'll find the settings we found best for viewing the Panasonic TC-P50GT25 in a dark room via the HDMI input with a 1080p, film-based source. Your settings may vary depending on source, room conditions, and personal preference. Check out the Picture settings and calibration FAQ for more information.
