A lower aperture like F8 would have helped. As mentioned, also check the metering mode. I use Center Average because I find it more consistent than the Matrix.

SR should definitely be ON unless using a tripod, as mentioned before. Try to keep the shutter around 1/40 or faster; it's really a trial and error process.

No processing, just JPEG out of the camera.

Travis, honestly considering that all new models are going to come out next year, it may make more sense to buy a cheaper body such as this and upgrade sometime at the end of next year. You lose the most money when buying the expensive model then upgrading.

I use both and i have to say that the k100d is much smaller and more portable. I also think it has much better output straight out of the camera...each has advantages and disadvantages.

Hello,

I purchased this as a second body to my k10d but ended up never even opening the box. It is brand new with all accessories. Item is located in New Jersey, USA.

I will ship worldwide depending on the person's credentials.


I have 2 ebay businesses one with over 1000 positives and one with over 400.


Thanks,
Peter V.

Getting colors right..Photoshop issues?

John, thanks again. I just about gave up on my PC and stepped over to my laptop and check out the results:

Laptop is a quality dell xps, color calibrated with spyder2pro as well, profile is set automatically on each start-up by the spyder2pro software and adobe gamma is Disabled. I should say that i'm using adobe CS2 (color management enabled) and Windows Vista on the laptop.

I recreated the same situation that I have on the PC and guess what... ALL PROGRAMS DISPLAY THE PHOTO EXACTLY THE SAME. There is none or virtually no difference between a photo rendering in Office Manager, Picasa, or PHOTOSHOP.


I'm starting to think the problem lies somewhere with the PC video card or other setting?

John,

No, i'm still completely clueless. If i PP a photo in lightroom or photoshop to look to my liking then view it in Picasa (my favorite photo browser) the photo looks nothing like what it did when i processed it.

I narrowed it down to it being the issue of color management. Any idea how i should configure color management properly?


I'm using Windows XP Pro and i have pretty much every major photo editing software at my disposal.


Can we start from scratch? What would someone do to ensure proper color management. I have windows xp, the photo editing software, and a Spyder2PRO.


Thanks,
Peter

OK, new development. I've been playing around with Corel Paint Shop and i noticed it has a feature called Color Management. If i Enable Color Management, colors are rendered as in Photoshop, and if I disable it, they look like the other photo programs.

Update: I installed Corel Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop Elements. Same darn problem. Elements renders the same as Photoshop, and Corel renders like Picasa and other basic photo viewers.

See comparison:

Edit:
I removed Photoshop and Elements, restarted and re-installed Elements only. Same result.

John, thanks for the indepth explanation of how colors actually work but unfortunately I can't see how to apply it to the practical problem at hand.

What is causing my mismatch between Photoshop and the other apps? Is it that Photoshop has its own color management? If so, who do i trust?

Here is a screenshop of the color settings option in PS:





I tried changing the Settings to MONITOR COLOR preset and now everything looks uniform, but whenever i open a photo i am asked which color space to use, the one i set in PS or the one of the photo I am editing.




I'm pretty clueless. I just want my photos to look uniform no matter what computer i view it on..i thought that was the point of monitor calibration. :(

OK i managed to make Photoshop display photos the same as my viewer application by going to View - Proof Setup and selecting Monitor RGB. I had to go to View and select Proof Colors also.

I guess the problem was that I was in the wrong proofing mode.

I'd like to leave the discussion open to any thoughts on this subject.

Thank you John.

I'm not set on a workflow yet, as I'm currently trying to learn to process RAW. I have Photoshop CS3 and Photoshop Laboratory to my disposal.

For viewing photos i like to use Picasa and Office Photo Manager.

I should add that photos in Bridge look much different than they do in Photoshop as well.

Hey gang,

I'm getting frustrated getting colors to look right on my monitor. For some reason, my photos are not independent on which application i use to view them, as it should be imo.

For example, i shot a few RAW shots and i processed one using Pentax Lab to my liking and saved to JPG sRGB. I opened up the photo with the default photo viewer (office photo manager) and it looks more or less how i processed it with Pentax Lab. I now opened the same photo with Photoshop and it looks completely different than the other 2 programs; colors are less saturated and the WB looks a bit different too.

See a photo of the comparison at http://www.njee.com/temp/color/color.jpg


My monitor is profiled with Spyder2PRO.


Thanks,
Peter
