good morning. i work for years now with my Z3100 and Z3200 and always loved the results.. i tried (all) kinds of profiling and printing software.. from RIPs to Qimage. the overall best results i got using the hpTC9.18 reference and APS.. as in transitions, shadow details and gamut.
now i bought a used Z6100 60" to get some more width for some work. i realized the gamut will be smaller, of course. BUT i get problems with transitions within the light colors that are inacceptable!.. shots against the sun f.e. child at the beach, flashed.. sun in the right corner.. where as a light cyan has to go into 255,254,254... i get banding with some magenta, some yellow and light cyan. and not only banding like an 8bit jpg will have.. but with clusters of cyan grabbing into brighter yellow. f.e.
do you know what i mean or does anybody have an idea about that?
it might be the built in lin is not working properly in those 0-15% ?.. the target for profiling doesnt really contain those light patches.. so maybe i have to use a different target?. i can check the whole process with a RIP.. but usually im dissapointed by the poor screening the RIPs have compared to the contone driver.. which then of course will have the same lin problems .. right?
