Colorblind photographers
Nov 3, 2006

I have seen too many rants about which camera give best colors, which labs give best reproduction, best monitors, etc.
How many photographers have had their color vision evaluated?

At the imaging company I worked at, each person who made decisions about color was evaluated using a sophisticated test for color matching ability. This was done after it was discovered that the head color QC guy was colorblind and was disrupting production with erroneous feedback on color accuracy!

Colorblindness is very common, and can be a subtle error in color space, as well as the more dramatic conditions. Lots of stuff available on Google as reference.
