You can not use QTR with these new Epson large format printers and there is a good chance according to Roy that you will never be able to.

With Epson ABW as it is now you can't print out a grayscale target on any media, adjust the ink limits for that media and linearize it in a precise way. Jon, Paul Roark and all these guys have done this forever,...

Without the ability to linearize this system to YOUR printer and YOUR media, you are not even in the ball game in my opinion. ...

Being able to linearize my profiles using QTR tools was a major advance in the art for me. 

One of QTR's applets ("Create ICC-RGB") allows us to make grayscale ICCs.   The approach allows users to linearize the ABW workflow if one is a Windows 7 user with PS CC.  However, I don't think many use the approach.

The general "Create ICC-RGB" approach, more importantly from my perspective, allows me to use an ICC workflow with variable tone B&W inksets, if they are designed to be compatible.  While I prefer the QTR full rip approach, there is a workflow that allows linearization and utilizes the standard Epson driver (non-rip) printing approach.  This can cover printers even if there is no rip support.  I have done this with a number of printers.

QTR and other such rips, however, are more flexible and easier to profile.  And most should stick with a standardized system where profiles are make available.

I have shot MFD and don't find it hard to go back 24x36. I guess it depends on what you compare and what your perceived needs are.

I have no doubts that full frame 645 MFD at the high end can deliver better image quality. With crop frame 645 it may be a different case. I guess that 24x36 at 42-50 MP can give 50 MP cropped frame a run for they money with the right lenses.

It may be that he X1D and the Fuji GFX hit some sweet spot. Great lenses optimised for 33x44 mm at a decent price point with functional AF…

Best regards

once you've used Medium Format and seen what it can do it's very difficult to go back.

Select a source seems to be redundant, quite useful if you are going to a previous folder that you have imported from but all of the mounted volumes and available folders/images are selectable once you move to the import dialog in the list on the left side of the window.

You still have to somehow have something from a new drive imported before that volume becomes available in the catalog hierarchy and allow you to move folders from one drive to another.

As to Brooke’s problem, not sure.  It should work, I do it all the time.

Hi Paul,

Yes, they are on the left.

Best regards

Hi Eric:

Interesting comparison, are the IQ100 tests on the left side?

Gorillapod can not support a DSLR well. And absolutely not with the 24-120 attached.

Wait for a year and then see what happens after the break. Britain hasn't left yet so too early for rejoicing.
None of us can predict the future.  You're making an assumption that the EU will stay hail and hearty.  What if other countries pull a Brexit or people just get tired of subsidizing other dead-beat countries.  Then the EU may be reduced to a trading zone where each country has their economic sovereignty restored.  Kind of what Britain is doing right now.  If that happens, Britain's Exit as the first may put them at the lead of countries with the best economies. 

Countries are like companies.  Those that are willing to be entrepreneurial and take chances seem to create the best and newest products.  Socialism not only makes people dependent on others and less creative and therefore less wealthy.  Socialist countries act the same way.   With similar results.

I like the third one best. Very strong both in tonal range and composition. It is generally abstract but the particulars draw you into the image.
