This is something I wrote in that thread (please if you have something to say about it, write it in that thread):
I thought a way of calibrating my light, please tell me if it's useful or if it has some flaws.
I have a DV camera (Panasonic GS500 3CCD). I can connect it to the computer and view a live vectorscope. So I thought that I can put the camera's balance in Daylight, then turn on my 6500K 80CRI CFL and point the camera to the wall. I get a slight green peak (8% I think), and I use my Lee Filters catalogue to mix filters and see what I need to correct. In this case, a 1/4 Minus Green works OK (need to go and buy it, because the catalogue is too small).
I'd like to know if I can use this method for Monitor Calibration. I put my camera face to face with the monitor, and check the vectorscope. Then I adjust my monitor basing on that.
Is this a good idea or an extremely bad one?
Which is the "standard" way of calibrating a display? I searched about it, but found many things that talk about print documents.
Which is the way to calibrate the gamma?
