So I posted this some time ago regarding video driver color settings causing issues with screen and prints not matching.
Recently I had a magenta cast and dark prints on a Canon Pro9500 Mark II. First I checked the Nvidia drivers settings like before, figuring maybe an update had fouled it up again. That looked good, and good thing because it would also mean revisiting my post processing.
Looking at the print properties, I found this:
Canon Pr09500 series XPS properties / Advanced / Print Processor button
It was using the winprint processor / RAW data type
Switching the print processor to Canon Pro9500II Print Processor / RAW data type fixed the magenta and darkness.
Now the color fidelity between screen and print is right on.
This post is for my friend who was not feeling so well today. Hang in there, I hope you find something in here that makes you smile.
This was another trip to the San Francisco Zoo. The beach was foggy and cool which to me seem like perfect Zoo conditions. For whatever reason, many of the animals are up and about, at least in the morning and you don’t get the harsh shadows and as many blow on backgrounds. This current set is with very minimal post processing, mainly just some cropping, so I could get these up tonight.
The mourning doves are at it again. Here they are during what we refer to as “the changing of the guard” and dinnertime for the young ones!
To get these shots I set the camera up on a tripod using an SMDV RFNe (low price remote trigger, check amazon). 1/5 of a second with an f6.3 and auto iso. I used auto iso in case it started getting dark while I waited, I figured I would rather have noise then darkness. It might have been nice to go with a bigger aperture to get an even shallower depth of field but I did not want to end up with a bunch of just out of focus shots since I would not get to make adjustments once the action started.
