media_1322827546392.png

NEC Display Solutions is running a series of half day workshops to assist users in getting the very best from their colour workflow Colour Management Course for Professional users of NEC SpectraView Displays
 
London, 2 December 2011NEC Display Solutions, manufacturer of SpectraView professional ‘Reference’ colour displays, is offering colour management courses for users of its SpectraView displays. Headed by leading UK colour consultant Paul Sherfield of the Missing Horse Consultancy, attendees will learn how to increase the efficiency of digital colour workflows.
 
The half-day courses are aimed at professional users within the graphic arts industries, photographers, image libraries, designers, pre-press and printing companies who use, or are going to use, NEC SpectraView displays to view images and pages for colour viewing and editing. The courses start in early 2012 at NEC’s West London offices and will cover many aspects of colour management from colour theory, display calibration best practice, colour management within common desktop applications, colour management policies and PDFs.
 
The demands on the creative and printing industries have changed considerably in recent years, with an increasing recognition and protective attitude of leading corporates towards their brand colours, such that no serious individual or company in this area can afford to not have a colour managed workflow and colour managed policy.
 
NEC SpectraView displays offer calibrated colour accuracy with long term colour and uniformity consistency. A range of displays with screen sizes from 23 to 30 inches and resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 pixels are all backed by the NEC 3 year on-site warranty extendable up to 5 years.
 
The first course take place on Thursday 26th January 2012 at NEC’s offices in West London. Each course will last approx. 2.5 hours with a maximum attendance of 6 people. A small charge of £50 +VAT will be payable. Anyone interested in attending should contact Anne Boreham on anne.boreham (at) emea.nec.com or call 0208 752 3777.

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Introduction


Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
