Coffee Talk with Phase One/Neils Knudsen - June 4 @10am EDT

Tomorrow we're hosting a coffee talk with Neils Knudsen, the "Image Professor" from Phase One. Neils has led or been involved in nearly every Phase One imaging advance going back to the 1990's. Needless to say he is a wealth of knowledge and information on Phase One and imaging technology in general. Some of the headline topics we'll be discussing will be color fidelity with the Phase One digital backs, including the new ProStandard Color Profiles. But I'm sure there will be more to uncover in addition. If you can make it, we'd love for you to take part.

Steve,
I signed up but unfortunately had a conflict come up at the last minute. Was it recorded and will it be available?

Hi Dave -

It was not recorded, unfortunately.

Brad Kaye moderated, and he and Neils had some good dirty nerdy talk about quite a few things, more under the hood topics, but for me, the practical takeaway was that for most scenes, the ProStandard profiles are the way to go for color, but also for high key dynamic range. It was interesting to see the examples of how as you increase contrast, the shadows tend to gain red saturation and the highlights tend to gain yellow saturation, and the ProStandard profiles really address that very effectively. But also highlights tend to gain back some data.

Good presentation, I started reworking some old shots with the ProStandard profile and I am very pleased with the results so far.

Thank you, Steve. I’ve been using the pro standard profile for a while and do like it. It is my default.
