*Pending Sale*

Item for Sale
Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 EX DG Aspherical
(My apologies. I made an error while listing this, so I've lowered the price even further because this model is without HSM)

Asking Price
600 - (new lowered price)

Item Location
Fremont, CA

Item Description
The Sigma 12-24mm is in excellent mint condition.
The lens has beautiful color, contrast, and great control
of distortion even at its widest focal length, which means
more time shooting photos and less time trying to fix
distortion in photoshop. The 12-24 will work on a full frame
as well, so if Pentax were to ever release one (crosses fingers)
this lens would be super wide.

The lens was stored with silica gel and protected
since day 1 with a $100 Digital Multi-coated 82mm Hoya
PRO1 Low Profile UV filter, which is included free. Only the best
for this lens. US warranty, not a gray market lens.

I accept Paypal payments and will ship to U.S. Paypal
confirmed addresses only. Your items will ship out via
USPS Priority 2-3 day mail upon clearing of your
Paypal payment (e-check takes 3-4 days to clear).

Shipping, insurance, and tracking is included. Priced firm.

Hi, there's the modified Pentax F5P 3' extension cord, and two Pentax camera hot shoe adapter F, and the gray extension cable. (there's a piece of electrical tape covering the contacts on one hot shoe so that you can mount your flash + hot shoe adapter, on a light stand)

Cheers!

Linux color calibration dilemma - suggestions?

Hello Frank, I am in the same situation as yourself. I'm running a linux environment with a windows xp guest through vmware. I thought I could calibrate in XP, but ran into the same video driver problem.

1. Did you find a solution with your new setup?
2. What calibration software are you using? Argyll CMS?
3. If we apply a profile to the Linux environment will the Window XP guest be calibrated as well (to use Photoshop)?

Thanks in advance

Agreed. Personally, I use a Gretag Macbeth Colorchecker every time I shoot, and it's useful for camera calibration. They changed their company to X-Rite now, but they have spectrally neutral gray cards as well.

Screen calibration question for Mac users

You could try using Adobe Gamma? to manually eyeball the calibration, and there are other free softwares out there, but I haven't tried these myself. They will enable you to do government work ; )

Downloading profiles from other monitors will not work though unfortunately. Each monitor is uniquely different and the R, G, and B values and color temps will differ from one monitor to the next.

Here's a great site with more information:

Screen calibration question for Mac users
Posted By imadethis

Hello,

Are you using a colorimeter, and how are you calibrating your laptop?

All jpeg's or .PEF's are taken in either sRGB or Adobe's color space. Once you take a photo and open it in the computer, your photo editing software will read the color space built into the file and display it on Photoshop.

Now on the other hand, the monitor is a separate and different procedure. The monitor relies on a separate color space than from your camera, so matching the sRGB color space for on the monitor will not work because monitors and cameras are independent of one another. All monitors read what is called an .ICC profile, which is the color space your monitor will display. Since you chose sRGB as an .ICC profile, sRGB on your mac laptop means the sRGB .ICC profile, your monitor's colors went all blue and whatnot. You will need a calibrated .ICC profile for each monitor you use for each monitor to display the same kind of image/color/brightness/etc. I'm not familiar on the procedure on a mac, so maybe someone with a mac can chime in.

On a PC, the procedure is to Connect the Colorimeter, Open the software, Put the colorimeter onto monitor, The colorimeter will scan your monitor, the User will adjust the monitor's settings manually, and the software will complete building a custom .ICC profile that's calibrated.

In general, all screens should be calibrated for Contrast, Brightness, R, G, B, and Color Temperature to display an image correctly from one monitor to the next. You can try to do this by using software and eyeballing it, but the best practice is to get a colorimeter for consistent results.

A few different types of colorimeters are Pantone Huey, Spyder, etc. and range in price from $70-200+

Cheers!

Agreed. Also, gray cards can be used for white balance. I alway use a gray card before shooting to use as a reference for later post processing. It's a must have for anyone who shoots RAW and color correction.
