> non linear nature of silver halide machines (especially Noritsu's).
...and if you print a linear grayscale and measure it, the curves you'll see will paint a different picture, that directly relates to the quality of B&W prints. MP and i1P deal with that better than PMP, IMO.
I do not see how I can elaborate.
Any elaboration that would help us understand your point would be helpful. Your talking to an experienced pro and a constant for Noritsu, among many other companies in the industry. You can click on my profile, or the link in my signature to find out more about me - I wish I could say the same about you. Why don't you disclose who you are? Would love to know more about you and that might help the conversation.
Are you prepared to work on optimizing the profiling target?
Oh god yes, I've done quite a bit of this actually.
Or you want to send me the measurements taken from my targets to profile and compare resulting profiles? But in case you are satisfied with your current results, what's the point?
Just help me understand your point about the preparation of the target effecting the perceptual saturation problems in BasICColor.
> Do you mean to say that there isn't a universal profiling solution that's compatible with all devices?
Exactly, that is a part of what I'm saying.
Well that's different, and we gotta be careful about what we say but just about any CGATS files will go into i1P for profiling.

Yes. I've been working with lab oriented end users like the original poster for 20+ years now and can tell you the percentage of them that will want to mess with Argyll will be extremely small! Yes, it's neat stuff for geeks...
