  • I'm equally confused about the last few statements as well. Kind of OT.
  • I'm not understanding this sorry. Pushing how? Again I don't see how this is pertinent. There's no Adobe workflow that forces DNG on anyone. Probably not, you can gain from other areas I've already ...
  • What problem? I reject that premise. Anyone who says that is neither teaching photography or image processing.
  • IF the products produce a raw file and they want to produce optimal raw data, why not? If they capture JPEG, they can ignore it. But if they are new to photography, why not learn to capture the raw ...
  • I believe so, at least in terms of the image previews. Also, depending on the version and support for such displays, the GUI can be difficult to see and use.
  • Which was exactly the case when some of us shoot transparency film. Off 1/3rd of a stop or so, depending on the scene (white dog on snow), same issue. ETTR is all about optimal exposure for the raw ...
  • By all means do so, but it's not all that helpful in either explaining the issues to others or affecting change. As someone who's worked with Adobe as a beta since version 2.5, dealing directly ...
  • Excellent question! I'd happily accept a free 4k NEC SpectraView but if given the choice between a 4K/5K iMac display and the SpectraView reference system that allows me to calibrate to multiple ...
  • Place the blame squarely on the camera manufacturers who refuse to provide a raw histogram and clipping indicators on the back of their stinkin cameras and instead show us the big lie, the JPEG we ...
  • Well it's good to know we're all in agreement :-) It would have been useful to point out that this is true for all image editing products instead of this:
  • Totally agree. Yup. Now that said, there IS a capability in the ACR engine and perhaps other converters that can take existing data in one or two channels that are not clipped and replace the ...
  • It's no longer clipped due to the edit as shown in the GUI, but that doesn't mean the exposure didn't actually over expose the image data from the sensor. If you build a document in Photoshop ...
  • Photoshop considers all image data that is greater than 8-bits per color (10, 12, 14-bits) what it calls 16-bit. You camera isn't producing true 16-bit data, probably 10-12 bits but it's moot. The ...
  • Far, far fewer folks reporting issues with the NEC than Dell. Do some searching, the Dell isn't getting great feedback, case in point: http://forum.luminous-landscape.com/index.php?topic=100570.0 h ...
  • There is nothing fabricated, the editing simply moved all tones that were maxed at RGB 255 to something less than RGB 255 and the histogram and clipping indictors show this new reality. This is not ...
  • Exactly. I could do the same in Photoshop and produce equally ugly results. The clipping and Histogram just report the current values based on the current settings. What was 255/255/255/ is set to ...
  • Not on this end, not with PV2012. I've got images that are totally blown out, no matter what I do with the sliders, no tone is placed over these areas. Yes, you can go way overboard and make the ...
  • That's the case in the ACR engine, at least if I'm to believe Thomas Knoll and Eric Chan. In over 20 years of dealing with Thomas, I have no reason not to believe him.
  • You shouldn't. You should define what you want the calibration to provide and then target the calibration for that goal.
  • Absolutely correct. The ambient light and surround affects our perception of the display and the print next to it we are hoping to match, again assuming the goal is matching the display to the print.
