Paul Thacker's recent activity

  • In 2012, I was talking with a friend who had spent his career in technology about the Sigma digital cameras. Sigma had a booth at CES that year. With enthusiasm, I explained the camera. Sensor. ...
  • HI Paul I was able to photograph in Wester Ross several years ago. I was there for only 5 days staying at the Autbea Hotel on Loch Ewe. It was surreal. The beauty of the land! What job do you have ...
  • HI Scott You've expressed my frustration over the years quite well. From big companies to CM, you've expressed quite well. I genuinely applaud your devotion to small independents! I agree with you ...
  • All I'm doing is pointing out that I have discovered the cause of a CM problem I was having several years ago. Currently, I do not have a CM problem. Just because Serif PPx8 is not CM'd does not ...
  • HI Stuart, Yes, part of what I am reporting is as your workflow above. What I am saying is that the Spectraview generated ICC profile for my P232w and loaded as the "default" profile in Color ...
  • Created discussion thread Color Management
    I just uncovered the answer to a question that has plagued me for years. A little background. In 2012ish, I stopped using PS CS4 and began using the Serif PhotoPlus editing software. Today, I use ...
  • Replied in SPP6.6.0
    HI Scott I have found over the past few days that the fine tuning of the width of the 1/4 tones at the bottom of the curves graphs allows for the creation of smooth ramps throughout the tonal ...
  • Created discussion thread SPP6.6.0
    Installed and worked up this picture w new SPP6.6.0. Speed is great. I have everything turned on in preferences for speed. Curves tool is a bit unusual in that the each section of the curve can be ...
  • Sorry for the snippy comment above. The samples I shot yesterday were made under very blue northern skylight late in the day. What I think is quite remarkable is exactly what is before us. In AWB ...
  • Go ahead guys, sample off whatever you want. See if you get what you hope to get and post it back here for us to enjoy.
  • HI Ted Below are pictures as you requested. The 654 settings were all zero'd except for SAT which was set to -0.1 for all except the Neutral mode file. This adj kept channels from clipping on the ...
  • TED! Mr. Flubber! My tongue is not made of rubber!!!! ...I actually kind of understand this. My old friend at the "company" suggested that FOV Classic Yellow is more like the SD9/SD10 than anything ...
  • I suppose my real question is has anyone confirmed that FOV Blue attempts to mimic the color of the SD9, and FOV Yellow the SD10/14? This is my suspension. These "FOV" color modes an effort to ...
  • Created discussion thread Color Modes FOV Classic Yellow
    The other day I edited a little picture in the FOV Classic Yellow color mode. It is the first time using it. Since then, I have made more tests with it, and in spite of it seeming completely ...
  • Created discussion thread FOV Yellow
    FOV Yellow is a setting I thought I'd never use, but it seems to be the right one for these pictures. (Truth be told, the pictures were completed in other software but not too much work after SPP.)
  • HI Steve This is the Steve Chong color palette we all fell in love with! and why it was so hard for me to "upgrade" to the SDQ and begin to use the SD14 less. What a beautiful picture!
  • Just for clarity, I don't have issues with DPR's choices. I could actually care less. What does seem obvious and understandable is when a x3f falls into their lap every couple of years, they can't ...
  • HI Scott I don't know anything about other brands. It seems to me though that Sigma Digital's position in the market place is foundationally different than Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji and so on. But ...
  • Thanks to our friend in the South Pacific, I was able to work up the SD H version with the same settings and edits as the DP2Q already posted. The two shots are remarkably similar. I was hoping ...
