  • No problem Scott, honest question so no insult taken :-) My preference is Standard. Landscape's colour shifts don't work for me and Vivid has too strong a tone curve; because SPP's contrast tool ...
  • Oh :-( Well that's that plan up in smoke then. Thanks for the heads up. For colour there's HSL sliders but Lo-res really has been ruined, tis a shame.
  • Created question thread dp0 firmware for SPP 6.3.3
    The trend that I've noticed with firmware and SPP updates is that colour is increasingly muted with NR stronger*. Anybody else (I'm not talking about OOC JPGs)? I prefer the older colour palette ...
  • -0.8 was a figure provided by Laurence Matson, his stated source was SIGMA/Foveon. However that was for Capture Sharpening! Firmware and software updates have affected the accuracy of that figure ...
  • Replied in Merrill Clouds
    Quoting your good self Ted but addressing the thread in general... Well, once again we see that the "Merrill grittiness" comes from SPP's chroma NR (albeit that can no longer be a surprise can it?) ...
  • Do you have a spectrophotometer to calibrate your PIXMA? It's important for the test to ensure that all colours are within gamut no?
  • What? Pixel-Shift is to negate the CFA.
  • Replied in why?
    Cheers, I see it written often as the de facto technique. But the "Green" layer's SNR with a white/D65 illuminant is often a wash with the "Blue." And as has already been commented upon, ...
  • Replied in why?
    In sunlight, have you found the "Blue" layer to be much cleaner than the "Green"? Whilst I understand why people use 100% Blue for night-time photography, in daylight I normally find myself using ...
  • Thanks Roland. If it helps, RawDigger reports 2048 for my dp0.
  • I'll bite because I've been intrigued by this for a while... is Quattro's high black point indicative of the X3F being Gamma Encoded? If Gamma is linear, is there any benefit to a high black ...
  • They prove me wrong by... which metric? I won't argue because you've taken a pretty stubborn stance on that one! :-| P.S, just to clarify, the best Quattro H photos prove me wrong but they're "just ...
  • Is highlight roll-off not a function of the tone curve applied to the RAW data, rather than the sensor itself? Yes AFE cameras' tendency to clip all 3 layers simultaneously results in the infamous ...
  • Given SIGMA's decision with Quattro... I'd feel more comfortable asking for a sensor with a specific SNR, rather than leaving it up to them! Quattro's top layer has a noticeably worse SNR compared ...
  • Not what I wrote nor meant. I really didn't think that it was that contentious to suggest shooting with a preset and correcting WB outside of SPP?! This has really gone off topic now though :-|
  • Hi Roland, you wrote: (1) No need to upscale the image before printing. The printer driver will do that just fine for you.
  • We have several large-ish format printers in work, the newest being an HP Latex 360 and I can't trust the driver nor RIP to upscale intelligently; I've wasted countless hours preparing artwork for ...
  • Sorry Ted... DISCLAIMER: Landscape photographer i.e, there is no single correct WB. I use the Colour Picker as well for Tint but always make final adjustments to Temperature outside of SPP — ...
  • Good sleuthing then Ted, wonder why they don't advertise it as an Extended ISO... we will never know.
  • Presumably then, ISO 100 numbers were ok, further confirming "Base" ISO?
