I need Sinar help, please!
Long story short, I picked up my Sinar gear second-hand and without instruction manuals, and can't find any online either. Most of the system has become pretty clear through practice, but I'm still in the dark on a few items; mostly calibrations and references.
Can my fellow forum members please give me some help in understanding what these Sinarback calibration procedures, and reference files are? And how to make clean versions and/or install them?
Captureshop Menu >> Capture
-"Get Black Reference" (Do I take a pitch black capture? Or should the camera be aimed at the 'scene'?)
-"Get White Reference" (I do have the 100mm x 100mm white acrylic Sinar piece, but don't understand what to do with it?)
>> Select White Reference
Seperately, I have a Sinar CD, titled "WS Ref.für CD," with two files on it: "2049.white.sensor.ref" and "Reference Installer."
I was able to install this on my Mac Pro, but oddly, it didn't want to install properly on my MacBook Pro laptop, which is an newer computer. Still working on that problem.
I've mostly figured out the "Calibrate Colors" and "Calibrate Piezos", because the software makes the procedure pretty clear. I was wondering, how often do I need to make these calibrations?
Techincal set-up is Captureshop 6.1.1, Mac OS 10.6.8, Sinarback 54H FW, Sinar P3, CMV 120mm, 90mm, and 55mm, and an LC Shutter.
Thanks in advance for any and all assistance! I know this is a lot of questions, but help on one or two items would be great!
