My copy arrived today! Started reading, but about to have dear friends visiting us, so did a quick peek through the remainder. Very interesting to put it mildly ;-)

Good to see mentioning of Ernst Dinkla and others.

Perhaps a good idea to have you together with Scott Martin and Ernst and some others do a similar publication on how to setup and profile  RGB printers of Epson and Canon  to maximise the output quality? This would complete the path from a well developed digital negative via a well prepared digital print to a well printed and presented endresult.

I'll have to yell at my copy editor!

I've actually caught some stupid typos myself...because of the book's delay, things got really tight for time at the end and some stuff got through that shouldn't have...no excuses, just an explanation :~)

But thanks for the kind words...

Jeff,

Not to nitpick, but there are some typos in Table 5.1 on page 269 of The Digital Print. Some of the contrast ratios are slightly off with the correct values shown below. This does not detract from your masterful condensation of what one needs to know about digital printing, but corrections could be made in another run of the printing. As with The Digital Negative, you manage to cover the essentials of what one needs to know in abundantly illustrated 300 pages. The two books really need to be read together.

Regards,

Bill

I just reran the calcs and your numbers are correct using the 10^(D-max - D-min) calculations...so, I don't know where the typos came from. I'll check the final text I sent in to see if something got screwed up in the InDesign files...thanks for the alert. At least they are "close"...

:~)

After dramas ordering the book locally I finally received it direct from Peachpit (and on the same day was contacted by the local book shop to say my order arrived - go figure).  IMO The Digital Neg is the book I prefer to read because it's more fun.  The Digital Print is the book I should read because that's all the stuff I'm sure we all neglect because lets face it - colour management isn't that fun (compared to shooting and processing).  I've already found three areas in my print workflow that I did already know, but forgot about because I've been slack and neglected that part.

Thanks Jeff for another great book.  It's a harder book to comprehend than the first, but then the subject is more technical than the first.  What's next?

How come the digital version on iTunes (to download to my iPad) costs so much more?

Because Apple takes 33% so the publisher sells at list (which you don't pay if you buy the electronic versions from Peachpit).

When you buy from Peachpit you get all three formats of ebooks: EPUB, MOBI and rights managed PDF. I really don't suggest buying tech books from iTunes/iBooks!
