Thanks a lot for the warm welcome to all of you! If you don't mind I will open two threads  for the respective topic soon. There I will answer to the questions and the outlook for a) the shutter (tjv) as well as b) the ALPA 12 FPS (narikin) questions. This is intended build up over time. Some aspects are still under NDA as in any industry but I will try to give you a general idea and to listen to your points :)

It's the video just after the one showing Big Foot getting lost in the Bermuda triangle.
How anyone with a lick of intelligence could watch this silly video and think it's real is beyond me. Just a waste of 2 minutes of my life....
Well I certainly am glad to have taken the 2min, as I think some of the posts here are great :-)

I was actually hoping to get a better understanding of the footage that some people claim it was faked. I was hoping some folks here could help in that area, and demystify things... if applicable.

Questioning the moon landing is very reasonable when the only source you have is the news. Also when you detach yourself from the time that it happened and are not linked to that period, it is even easier to question it, don't you think?

Reading Bernard's post, I have to agree...If I understood it right.

Why on earth would one want to print a colorchecker using some other intent?
To test em all. We've been over this before.

Well that sucks. Now how hard would it be for them to allow us to use other RI options? Don't answer. They haven't paid any love to the product in a long time.

Why on earth would one want to print a colorchecker using some other intent?  The only reason to print one is to check the profile accuracy by comparing it to an actual colorchecker and you can't do that printing RI or PI. If the AI matches then the RI is also good. PI,RI, SI are best tested with other images for smoothness and the colorchecker print is useless for that.

Yes and no. The absurdity of market pricing of art as scarce, tradeable objects is equally true of a van Gogh selling for $100 million, when i can have the same sensoreal pleasure from a good quality print. Imagine if literature worked the same way: no one would care much about reading, only about owning a first edition...

The question of whether a Pollock or a potato or Duchamp's urinal or a bicycle wheel is art is a separate question, since there is no workable definition of art. Arguing about whether X is Y when you can't define Y is an inevitable waste of time. I have enjoyed looking at several Pollocks.


Perhaps 'art' at the stratospheric level is solely about money; it's similar to owning a famous diamond which, now and again, comes up for auction and one pocket's the difference after the dealers have taken their slice. That's on a good day, when the net return is greater than the purchase cost you. I wonder how these things are valued from the tax point of view; whether one has to give an annual valuation for each masterpiece, whether it's a simple capital gains mechanism after a sale, or whether a more sophisticated form of calculation gets made that considers the item's fluctuating, if imaginary value each year of your ownership.

Not a probem I'm likely ever to face.

The I1 "holey" colorchecker profile verification image is printed using Absolute Colorimetry.

AFAIK, Alwan ColorPursuit is no more.
The "Holey" checker that i1P uses is kind of cool, too bad when testing in their app, the don't tell you what rendering intent you're testing (and you're 'stuck' with one).
Synthetic images do tell you a lot about the smoothness of the various color engines. But real images are often a good way to test the profiles too. The Roman 16 suite is pretty awesome for testing output with real photography: http://www.roman16.com/en/

The I1 "holey" colorchecker profile verification image is printed using Absolute Colorimetry.

The I1 Profiler has a set of downsized Roman 16 images in the user appdata folder.

This exact problem plagued me for months. (Trash Can w/ twin D700 GPUs)

I would find what I believed was a fix and then have the problem recur a few days later. I was running two NEC monitors. It drove me nuts.

I eventually gave up and sold one  of the NEC monitors and replaced it with a used Apple Cinema display. I have never had a problem since.

I believe there to be an incompatibility between the D700 (& D500??) GPUs and multiple non-Apple displays. Graphics problems have abounded with the Mac trash can since its 2013 release. There is currently a new Apple repair program to address some of these issues and apparently a new TrashCan in the works for this year.

Personally I lost so many hours with this machine, I wish I had gone with the 5K iMac. But I also believe there is so little Apple skin in the pro game that a dedicated video workstation would be far better off on the PC platform. High-end workstation providers to the video production world seem to agree.

But the Arca P0 is really inadequate to macro shooting, it lacks of precision.
