Samsung UN22F5000 nice, deep color picture setting

by WolfyAmbassador / December 20, 2013 5:10 AM PST

Here are some settings I managed to get while playing around with my TV. These settings should give you a very saturated picture, especially with the warm 1 color temp set. It may be too saturated, but I recommend it, because it makes the quality look almost life-like, especially when watching outer space images and video. If anyone has a better setting, feel more than happy to post that in the chat, I wouldn't mind checking it out:

Here are my settings:

Mode: Standard

Backlight: 17

Contrast: 80

Brightness: 60

Sharpness: 15

Color: 50

Tint: G50/R50

Advanced settings

Dynamic Contrast: High

Black Tone: Dark-Darkest (blacks may seem to dark to you)

Color Space: Native

Picture options:

Color Tone: Standard or Warm1 (calmer, warmer image with more color saturation)

Screen Size: 16:9-Fit

filters/clean-view: Off

HDMI Black level: Low

Everything else stock I believe.

Also, try a contrast of 90 and a brightness of 55 for HD movies/shows. It looks really good.

In reply to: UPDATE!

If wanting to shut the dynamic contrast off (which I heard saves TV lifetime), set the color to warm2, and preferably set the black tone to "Darkest" if you want to recreate some deep colors when we had dynamic contrast turned on. I also believe shutting dynamic contrast off might make the motion a little better. I am not sure totally. Maybe it increases processor performance, not sure.
