Yes. But I regard "gamma" as a part of "contrast"...;-)

And, you can adjust the CRT computer monitor to get

you close enough to make it useful for judgeing/adjusting

"exposure" (contrast/brightness/gamma). It does take

some specific effort to do this, though, using the

capabilities offered by newer video cards - but most

don't bother, leaving a problem with this...
