Quoted from Dmod:
The GAMMA feature we added to SIGMA 2.4 won't improve the overall contrast... The max/min levels don't change, only the mid-levels.
I must admit that when I read this, I thought it was of no real use.
But I was quite surprised by the result: it gives the impression of a higher contrast. Previously, I had set the brightness to 'HI' because it was too dim otherwise. I now set the brightness to 'MED' and the gamma to 'DMD' and the animations look so much better... A HUGE improvement!
I took it out of my STTNG and now have it in my STLE. I'm a bit reluctant now to put it back in the TNG. So maybe I'll just buy another one. I believe you mentioned thinking about a 'cheaper version' once, Randy. No news on that?
Or better yet, a full color version for Star Trek?
