They were probably being paid by the hour. 2000 hours of calibration have never sounded worse. An aftermarket PC sound based system with a ASUS modified sound card and the right software and...

Wide variety of factors involved. The best system that I've listened to was a ML equipped LS430 many years ago. That's when they were using horn loaded compression drivers. That particular LS430...

Dave,

If you're going to send out the lens to CPS, have them replace ALL the felt friction and stopper rings in the lens. Over time the adhesive and the felt start to disintegrate and allow for...

Every lens in the world vignettes to a certain extent. I only know of one lens that won't vignette due to the optical and mechanical design but those aren't available off the shelf.

Tools,

More than likely Eizo. An operation that big won't use any other monitor if they respect their sanity! Also, monitor hoods usually indicate Eizo or possibly NEC. Did you get a chance to...

RA40,

In order to save on experimentation headaches (different x-rite / x-wrong gear, different calibration gear), just get an Eizo CG series. Those have always been completely dead on with...

The very old Eizo monitors will use pucks from i1, Monaco, Datacolor, whatever they can get their hands on. It wasn't until the CG245 and similar generations until Eizo went with their own...

x-rite = x-wrong

All,

Good article for reading. All of these sensors were referenced to a nearly $30,000 Photo Research machine, among the most stable and best in the business. Not surprisingly, x rite ranked as...

The BIG BOYS... 30 inch class monitors

Had these two for a while now. One goes for nearly $6000, the other at nearly $3000. Fun times. Feeding both of them with a Quadro M4000 10 bit / channel video card.

The more expensive one is...

Mike,

Having dealt with Phase One, Hasselblad and Leica, the series II Canon optics surpass the Hasselblad / Fuji lenses quite easily. Phase One / Schneider is a bit better, but not by much. The...

Mike,

Good possibility of taking place of a T/S lens. If you look in any type of architecture magazine, they always have the buildings with T/S lenses and straightened lines.
