Here's the thing, jjj.

I don't care what you think. If you want to go check the truth value of some side remark I made, a couple of moments with google will provide loads of evidence that I am right. Page after page after page of "We asked so and so artists why they do it and they said..." with not one of the artists saying "to create a legacy" or anything equivalent.

Since you are too lazy to even bother with that, you obviously don't care whether what I say is true or not.

What you CARE about is winning an argument on the internet.

I don't. I don't care what you think, or what you believe. Go ahead, you win. Go collect your trophy, and the cash prize that goes with making snotty remarks on the internet.

I should mention that I am a Unix junkie, since 1984…

Best regards

Yes, a hangover from Unix, but it's not the default OSX installation and the user has to deliberately set it up that way - presumably for a good if obscure reason. If Lr were to run under it, Adobe would have to code for all sorts of oddities - eg should you allow ThisFile.nef to exist in the same folder as thisfile.NEF, and how do you then handle the user moving work to a Windows box?

Hi Wayne,

When you've hit on the colour specs you like best and the procedure for the 4900, grateful if you could share here - while I have my own colour page for this purpose that does the job, it was not composed too scientifically, so yours' may be better at isolating channels.

I see that Kodak is now selling an inkjet metallic paper now that is supposed to mimic the Endura. Anyone tried it and would like to share their experience?
I just don’t think you can’t mimic the endura with a pigment based process. Just a difference between laying semi opaque dyes down on top of paper vs dyes encapsulated in the emulsion. Pretty sure Kodak is just sourcing the paper from the same places all the other vendors are.

Not that ink jet metallics can’t look good, just won’t look the same.  I print of ton of Kodak Metallic and several of my clients who own Epsons have tried metallic papers and haven’t been happy, and continue to buy from me.

Be sure to set the focus to manual then the user button to AF drive. Press the user button to focus  then recompose shoot.

I came across a site which lists the hex codes for the colors to use for the inks on Epson and Canon:
While the codes are really just simple codes if you look at them and not really scientifically calculated to match a specific ink, (note they almost all are made up of 0 (00), 50%(80), or 100% (ff) of RGB and are the same as creating RGB values like 255,128,255), a couple of quick tests so far show they are pretty effective at isolating single channels.  VLM printed out as a large page shows .53ml of VLM ink, .02ml of most of the other colors, sort of insignificant. I plan on verifying this with the other colors, and also am going to check out Jack’s resource because most of his colors show a little mix, so they may isolate the colors more effectively.

There really were no clear directions on how to print these files (i think the site is more directed at consumer printers), I tried a couple of different ways, the best result so far was using PS managing color with epson premium luster profiles, and relative colorimetric.  I may modify my file using some of this information to get a more even use of colors, and I have a friend I’m working with to automate printing this out on his 4900 each day to see if this helps.

So a good resource.  I do think after doing a clean, and even before printing a nozzle check, printing something that will force a little ink out of every nozzle in the head may reduce “clogs” since most “clogs” really are just nozzles that have had a little air pull back inside. Epson should have a test page that includes color patches to do this.

From the DXO full SNR data one can calculate the DR at any desired noise floor as outlined by Emil Martinec. The noise floor that DXO uses for DR is 1:1 or 0 dB. A SNR of 10:1 or 20 dB is more realistic for photographic DR as suggested by Jim Kasson (who posts here frequently and is very knowledgeable in these matters).

I calculated the DR at this noise floor at base ISO for the Nikon D800e and Phase One IQ180 and the results are shown below for both Screen DR and Print DR as used in DXO nomenclature. The DR for 0 dB is also calculated and corresponds closely to the results posted by DXO. Using Print DR as a criterion, the D800e has a 0.81 stop advantage at a 0 dB noise floor and at 20 dB it still has a 0.25 stop advantage. At 18% saturation shot noise predominates and the IQ 180 has better SNR. When CMOS MFDB backs with their large sensor area and presumably low read noise, the MFDB will come out on top.

Yeah... but what you post IS IRRELEVANT to what you Quote on... Cheesy

War has always been the ultimate wealth transfer vehicle that is designed to enrich the ruling elite who own the means of production. Forget politicians because they are just agents. That explains why wars,  such as Vietnam War,  was designed to drag on for years without any victory in sight. War is money and follow the money you can get your questions answered.

Hello all! I just got back from a three month trip overseas, through Asia and Europe photographing and exploring the terrain. I have begun my long but oh so beautiful journey of scanning the imagery. The following two images include the Li River, winding through the massive rolling knolls of the Shaanxi Province, and the ancient rice terraces in the upper territory of Guilin. Stay tuned for more soon, as i look forward to sharing with you some of my favorites. Hope all is well.

We beta tested the new formulation of Lexjet Sunset gloss and like it. It's slightly thinner and takes a little longer to dry but has a very nice gloss finish. I've used Clearstar, Breathing Color (Glamour and Timeless), Eco-Print Shield in the past and I still prefer the Sunset coating.
