Quick Monitor Calibration Chart
Default settings: not very useful
Bring up shadows, minimum contrast: nice, but DR still lost in the highlights
Try to recover highlights: they take up too much space, rest of image crushed down
Flaat: go nearly as high, trying to control how the color space is distributed
(quick note: don't try to count stops here: from the fifth stop downwards, these charts are created by stacking ND filters; the fact that my filters don't take out exactly the amount of light they advertise, but slightly less, is what explains how these charts seem to say there are 14 stops of DR when everybody else has measured only 13)
I tested this using my Datacolor SpyderCheckr. For reference, the little squares in the middle are the correct tones.
Out of the box, color is relatively good, but skin tones are a bit too rosy.
Flaat corrects this, and gives a bit more relative saturation to the reds too.
Here you see the color palette of Flaat. Mouseover shows the standard palette.
