A thought occurred to me and, at the risk of sounding like a complete @rse, I'll have to let as many people know as possible even if it's just to confirm that I am completely mad. This whole contrast thing with LCD's appears to be relatively fixable with the use of a CC filter. OK, so its not perfect, but some guys are reporting fairly impressive results particularly when using one on the 11HT. Now I got to thinking, I use an 11 with a Stewart Grayhawk and from time to time people will comment that despite having a grey screen the colours are still OK and brilliant white still looks like brilliant white and not slightly grey as they were expecting. There is a very good reason why this happens but for simplicity lets just assume that some basic law of physics means that white still looks white when projected onto a grey screen. With me so far? Good! Now heres the thing. Why not use a grey filter in front of the lens as opposed to the 'pink' CC variety? Since colours won't be spoiled and white will still look like white there shouldn't be any obvious side effect. BUT, the additional grey tint should also go some way to blocking the light which bleeds through the LCD panels when reproducing blacks. Grey becomes dark grey and dark grey becomes black, you get my drift? So, am I a genius or am I mad?
