Thanks for the link.  Impressive result for the A7RII.

I stand by my opinion that the color discrimination in the greens of the A7RII has been traded for higher ISO.
But a filter might help.

Here's a guess game for you;

I'm working with subjective tuning features in DCamProf so you can make the profile render "flattering" skin tones rather than accurate (and any other subjective tunings you may want to do). It's not exactly easy tuning without a GUI, but it can be done. You write a specification of the subjective adjustments in a JSON config file.

The attached image shows three images, one is a neutral DCamProf profile with a tone curve using the neutral tone reproduction operator, one is my work in progress concerning hand-tuned skin tones using DCamProf, and one is a Hasselblad Phocus original rendering. The camera is a H4D-50.

So which one is which? And which skin tone rendering do you prefer?

i did do the pre-condition, even though i don't fully understand it from the documentation.  but my question is: what if the profile you started with is very poor quality?  i guess that's when they say you can make a pre-condition target within Argyll comes in?

secondly, i'm not sure what's going on with the 2-step precondtion, but i'm guessing you run create a profile with precond set, then create another one using that second profile?

just a quick side question - you know the physical color checkers?  i have a lalrge one that's about 6-7 years old, but then i just got a new one with the colormunki photo.  my question is this: are the colors on these devices computer generated in LAB space with a certain lighting in mind like D50?  then they have to do some uber-color control in order to print it out or create a paint like substance to actually create the card?

so it all starts in the computer then and then gets translated into the physical world?

I haven't read this entire thread. But in general,  I am skeptical of his conclusions with all of the medium format equipment he has used. I'm not saying that he's 100% wrong or that he hasn't had any issues. But I have used some of the same equipment that he has and have not had the same poor results. I even offered to met up with him with my H4x and phase back several year ago, so he could test that and he said he wasn't interested and that medium format wasn't his focus or interest (paraphrasing here), so he didn't want to. I have followed his mac/computer and views and think that is pretty accurate though.

Also, I saw Salgado's exhibit twice and up close you can tell the difference between the film shots and digital shots. I mean when you look at the grain closely, from a foot away. It didn't effect the impact of his images and you couldn't really  tell from farther away. But it was a fun little game to guess and see if I was right when I got closer to it. I d think the exhibit said that he shot with canons when he switched to digital for the project. It was one of the best exhibits I've ever seen.

I think that at this point one should talk about team Salgado.

Nah, Epson hasn't gotten totally out of the printer business.  They're too busy concentrating on making burger making machines.

Wonder if the mustard and ketchup bottles overhead will cost $1/ml for each condiment like ink?  Cheesy

Hi all, I'm struggling to get my Canon 5DS AF to work candidly to face track on the street, or even just figure track - select a figure and focus follow it as the person moves through the frame/across the street?  Can someone explain the basic settings I need to establish, and the AF setup best to choose?

I see a face tracking emblem in the menu, and that is turned on, but it never seems to lock into a face in the same way an iPhone does, for example.  But then, there is such a confusing array of options, I expect I have something set wrong.

thanks

Is it right to take this long? To be sure, I just deleted ~6000 of the 27,000 photos in the catalog, so there's a lot to do, but still ....

How big is the unzipped catalog?  Is it on a slow drive?

My catalog is 1.48 GB before zipping and it takes about 5-10 min to optimize although I really haven't timed it.

The video is interesting, but the fact that Nikon decided to make this video is even more IMHO.

Their engineering has always been first class, now they seem to have understood that they have to tell the world about it.

Cheers,

Paul, of course that I already found and read you're article before posting Smiley A great one!

About vertical shooting, in what way is "a bit challenging"? Does this apply only to Universalis or also to the M and the M-two?

I wasn't clear on that one.  The Sony LCD only flips out horizontally, so if you go vertical, then you pretty much have to be up in front of the camera and since moving the screen only takes you off vertical, it's a bit harder to use.  The only screen I have seen that really would work is the excellent design that Sony has on the A99, or one of the Canon non Pro cameras (go figure).

The issue for me was outdoors, as the Sony LCD is pretty much a mirror in good to bright light.  When setup horizontally, I could easily move the screen to effect reflections, but vertical was not possible. 

Still a great solution and Chris B has figured out a way to get the Canon TS-E's to work, as Arca has never released their mount for Canon, but that also requires all the Arca Electronics.  Chris's solution is much simpler.
