  • 1. NEW MOBILE CONTROL FOR SINAR eSHUTTERS

    Now you can control your Sinar eShutter autonomously, without the need for a computer. We are pleased and proud to present you the Sinar eControl.

    The Sinar eControl is the successor to the renowned Sinar eShutter Control that was introduced in 2012.
    Any lens from Sinar, Rodenstock, Schneider, or third party, that is equipped with an eShutter or eShutter 250, can be
    controlled by the Sinar eControl without a computer. Thanks to its long-lasting rechargeable and replaceable lithium-ion battery, the Sinar eControl, together with the Sinar eShutter, can now fully replace the mechanical Copal Shutter, which is no longer being manufactured.

    Yes, with the Sinar eControl and lenses with an eShutter, Architecture, Landscape, or Studio captures can now be taken independently of the availability of mains power and a computer.

     

     


    Sinar eControl mounted on the tripod of a Sinar LanTec Camera, ready to take an architectural image with a Sinarback S 30|45 and a Sinaron Digital Lens with eShutter.

     

    Sinar eControl mounted on the tripod of a Sinar p3 Camera with a Sinarback S 30|45 and a Sinaron Digital Lens with eShutter.

     

    Everything at a glance
    Thanks to the transflective LCD-display, all information can easily be read even in bright sunlight.

    When connected, the lens is automatically recognized and indicated on the display.

    The desired aperture and exposure times are quickly set by means of a control wheel (turn and click).

    Easy Operation and Control
    For image control with the live image, the shutter is opened and closed at the push of a dedicated button.

    Similarly, if necessary, the aperture can be switched from working aperture to fully open and vice versa, just by pushing a second button.

    The respective status of aperture and shutter are shown on the display.

    When everything is set, the capture is taken by pushing the release button on the Sinar eControl. And to prevent undesired surprises the battery charge is constantly monitored and displayed.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Very Versatile

    Besides taking single exposures or multi-exposures, bracketing functions can be selected.

    There's also a timer available.

    To perfectly synchronize third-party digital backs, a pre-delay time can be set.

    The flash can be set on early or late, or be switched off completely.

    A hot-shoe accepts any standard transmitter to remotely trigger the flash unit; alternatively, the flash pack can also be released via a sync cable that is connected to an x-sync socket.

    Further sockets allow the connection and triggering of a third-party digital back, a hand-release cable, or a USB cable.

    On the rear, a 3/8”, and a 1/4” tripod thread allow for a comfortable fixation of the Sinar eControl to the camera tripod via the addition of the Sinar eControl Mounting Bracket (S08003).

    By operating the unlocking slider, the battery can easily be replaced at any time.

    A respective securing mechanism prevents the battery from falling out in case the release slider is inadvertently actuated.

    Sinar's innovative electronic shutter family expands with the introduction of a new model:

    The Sinar eShutter 250

    Featuring a Top Shutter Speed of 1/250 sec.

    The superb functionality of the eShutters already make them the ideal solution for indoor/studio use, however, the new model's faster top shutter speed of 1/250s is better suited for use with technical cameras used outdoors. The new eShutter 250 thus heralds a new standard in contemporary large format photography.

    Sinar eShutter: The Perfect Electronic Shutter For Professional Use

    Sinar eShutters will become mobile with the introduction of the new eShutter Control 2 to be available by the end of 2016. Untethered eShutter operation can then be realised!

    The new eShutter Control 2 is equipped with WLAN near-field communication for convenient control via iOS using the eShutter Control App.


    The Sinar eShutter Control 2 will be launched at Photokina in Cologne Germany in September 2016.

    Colour Accuracy Redefined

    Sinar CTM (Colour To Match) multispectral dual-pass filter solution for highly accurate colour reproduction in digital high-end photography. It corresponds to the visible spectrum of the human eye in the range of 380 - 730 nanometers. This dual filter solution has been engineered together with the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), Rochester, USA, and corrects for known colour deficiencies in the Bayer pattern coating applied to photography CCD sensor arrays. CTM was developed exclusively for Sinar digital backs. This extreme colour accuracy is especially required in digitization of valuable cultural objects of art, in reprography, scientific and advertising photography. The results achieved are digital image files with unmatched colour accuracy that guarantee an efficient workflow and a high throughput.

    Sinar eMonitor

    Display Calibration for Highest Color Accuracy

    Sinar eMonitorDisplay technology has experienced rapid development of late and thus places higher demands for precision and accuracy from a measurement instrument than ever before. The Sinar eMonitor is made for the exact measurement of monitors, projectors, large format displays, viewing booths and continuous ambient light
    sources. When used in combination with Sinar Digital Backs using Sinar’s CaptureFlow software with its fully color-managed workflow, the Sinar eMonitor Colorimeter adds precision profiling for your Displays as part of a truly color-managed professional workflow.
    The Universal Colorimeter
    The Sinar eMotion is a colorimeter, made by basICColor in Germany, that has all the elements the market is looking for. For the accurate measurement of color monitors, viewing booths, light boxes, standard lighting fixtures, projectors and continuous
    sources of ambient light. The eMonitor is housed inside a circular anodized aluminium, plano-parallel, unibody housing and supports various measurement modes.
    Contact Measurement – The eMonitor device is suspended from the integrated tape measure. Makes emissive Display contact measurements that exclude interference from ambient light.
    Tele Measurement – Using the eMonitor Tele accessory, allows ambient light measurements from a distance on a desktop stand (Metamerism). A laser beam enables an exact alignment of the instrument. Significantly more accurate than any other device The Sinar eMonitor is easily the most capable calibration sensor.
    It provides very good accuracy when measuring RGB back-lit monitors and even better results on the highest-end Eizo and NEC displays. If your business depends on how accurately your monitors render color, the Sinar eMonitor is an attractive choice.
    This product also proved essentially immune to ambient temperature changes and has the most secure and foolproof attachment to a monitor screen of any measurement device available. Numerically, as measured by a reference grade spectroradiometer, the Sinar eMonitor is the more accurate and consistent meter on every display. This allows the photographer to do their viewing with a degree of confidence and get their color managed workflow moving smoothly with no surprises.

    Plug & Play
    Load the included basICColor Display Mac or PC compatible software and USB connect the eMonitor to your computer and start calibrating. We recommend waiting 40 minutes or so for the Display/device to warm up and stabilise prior to making any measurements.

    Proven Stability
    Using custom-grade coated optical glass filters and combined with sensors offering high inter-instrument agreement, the Sinar eMonitor guarantees the long-life stability of your results. Each device is individually calibrated and can also be re-certified to provide peace of mind that the measurements results achieved are of the highest possible standard. The Sinar eMonitor – a reliable Colorimeter and production reference tool for long-term use.

    Lab-grade Precision
    Unlike other colorimeters, Sinar eMonitor has been designed to be a lab-grade instrument of the highest quality. It was made for the express purpose of accurately calibrating these wide-gamut displays with no compromises. The temperature sensor in the Sinar eMonitor compensates for degrading heat issues during the measurement process. Even after extended use, the Sinar eMonitor will provide even and consistent measurement data that is especially important in sensitive black areas.

    Scope of Delivery
    eMonitor Case
    The Sinar eMonitor is supplied inside a fitted case and includes software and a desktop stand.

    21/01/2013 — Capture Scan Print appointed Mamiya Leaf reseller for NSW and the ACT...
    Effective today, I'm delighted to let you know that Capture Scan Print is now able to offer you products from the extensive Mamiya Leaf product portfolio. These are sourced from the Australian Mamiya Leaf distributor, Ted’s Corporate, Government & Professional, based in Melbourne.

    More Digital Options
    As the Australian Sinar Distributor, the addition of Mamiya Leaf products to the range serves to enhance the portfolio of digital equipment offered by Capture Scan Print and this is quite relevant in the knowledge that Sinar does not currently offer any one-shot portable digital backs with a display and with CF storage. I believe the addition of the Mamiya Leaf product range should be seen to compliment, rather than compete against the existing Sinar product range.

    Experience
    Capture Scan Print offers you extensive experience with Leaf digital backs, with hands-on involvement since the very inception of digital photography in the early 1990's. We currently own and use a Leaf AFi-II 12 80 Mp back which is configured for use on several cameras such as the Leaf AFi, the Rollei Hy6 Models 1 & 2 (soon) plus some very special Sinar portable cameras such as the arTec, lanTec and even the Sinar p2 for long lens use with a Sinar sliding adapter.

    It is a pleasure to be once again involved in selling Leaf backs and I welcome your interest in Mamiya Leaf!

    Sinar presented several new and exciting products at Photokina 2012! For more information, please click the above images to download a pdf brochure or document. And feel free to call for additional information or other questions you may have.

    The Sinarback eXact is a world-leading multi-shot digital back which features multiple shooting modes from 12~192 MP.

    CaptureFlow
    software will eventually support both Mac and Windows platforms and features an integrated basICColor colour-engine with multi-target input ICC profiling capability. In addition, the new application is now a fully 64-bit application and whilst a beta version was shown at Photokina, the features and speed of the application was a positive step forward. CaptureFlow will initially support current Sinarbacks; the eVolution and eXact series. There may be a chance that older devices will be supported too such as the 54m and possibly the 54H.

    Photokina Star announcement











    The new Sinaron Digital 90mm HR-SW lens features a 120mm image circle and a minimum of 100 Lp/mm resolution over the entire image circle! I was told this is the best lens Rodenstock has ever produced for use with digital photography and of course a high-quality lens such as this will be absolutely mandatory when using the Sinarback eXact's 16-shot mode.

    The Sinar lanTec is a new compact camera for outdoor shooting. It features optional/removeable left and right side hand grips and tripod pan base. It uses Sinaron CEF lenses made for the Sinar arTec which are mounted in helical mounts and Copal shutters. Camera movements are ± 20mm lateral shift and + 25mm and -15mm Rise and Fall respectively. Thanks to the interchangeable camera back adapters, it can easily be used on digital backs with either M645, Hasselblad-H or Hasselblad-V interface mounts. It is priced very reasonably.

    And finally, there was one relatively quiet but surprising announcement—a Multi-Spectral Dual-RGB Capture for use in archiving where colorimetric accuracy really matters. Featuring a new method of digitisation which was jointly developed by Roy S. Berns of the Munsell Color Science Laboratory at the Rochester Institute of Technology and Sinar Photography. The system consists of a digital back with the IR filter removed thereby extending spectral sensitivity beyond 600 nm, and two filters, each of which is used to capture images. The optimal filter pair were Schott BG 39 and GG475 optical glass, each with an AR coating and a glued UV and IR cut filter. Interestingly, the BG 39 is a common IR filter; thus the camera can be used as either an RGB or Dual-RGB camera.

    Availablity for items such as the new Sinar lanTec and the 90mm HR-SW lens is immediate, with availability of the Sinarback eXact and the new CaptureFlow software said to be within the next few months.

    Sinar Photography announces Sinarback eXact...

    12 to 192 MP digital back !

    The new Sinarback eXact enhances Sinar’s existing digital back technology by adding additional features—whilst simultaneously preserving their uncompromising dedication to producing high-quality digital capture devices that are reliable and long-lasting tools for use in Professional Imaging.
    The Sinarback eXact is Sinar’s new flagship model and offers the superb image quality that all Sinarbacks are famous for, whilst adding new features over previous models.
    The Sinarback eXact’s feature-list adds four additional shooting modes. One of which is the new XL 16-Shot mode. This 192 MP mode uses micro scanning to increase the sensor’s spatial resolution and to provide full colour sampling for each and every half-pixel step. The process provides fully sampled—and thus true and accurate colours—and this in turn produces images with greater contour sharpness over what’s possible via any single-shot method of capture. To experience just how stunning and rich in detail Sinarback eXact images can be, you really must see the images for yourself.

    Based on the legendary 16-shot technology from former Sinar digital backs—the micro-scanning function has been significantly refined for use with the new Sinarback eXact.


    Sinarback eXact = multiple shooting modes...

    Sinarback eXact shooting modesAs you can see in the table, there are two XL modes where the back shoots an effective 192 MP sensor.

    There's the XL 4-shot mode, which provides 192 MP ‘single-shot quality’ with interpolated colours—and there's the XL 16-shot mode as was mentioned previously. The new Sinarback eXact sets new image-quality standards thanks to the integrity of the information sampled and this of course ideally suits applications where larger file sizes and/or highest quality/colour-accuracy is mandatory. But wait, there’s more to the new Sinarback eXact... Sinarback eXact: All in One?
    When biggest may not be best for your workflow...
    In recent years, there's been an ever-increasing upward trend in the pixel density of MFD sensors. However, in some instances of production, not only Sinar, but their clients too, have become acutely aware of the post-production burden when producing images that are way too large for the purpose at hand. Less is more?
    Sinar has added two shooting modes which effectively reduce the effective pixel count of the sensor—thus reducing overall file size—all without affecting image quality for the smaller file-sizes produced. This is ideal in circumstances where the need for more pixels is outweighed by the intended purpose of the image. So besides the regular capturing modes—one and four-shot modes with 48 MP—the Sinarback eXact enables you to render smaller 12 MP and 21 MP one-shot images. These features precisely meet the strong demand from Sinar’s clients, which allow the Photographer to capture smaller file-sizes when the need arises. And this adds versatility making the Sinarback eXact the perfect capture device for all types of professional high-end studio photography and for use in Heritage Recording, Archiving and Art Reproduction tasks. Quality First
    The Sinarback eVolution75/86 H and now the new model Sinarback eXact all inherit Sinar's uncompromising commitment to the highest standards in image quality. One important example for all multi shot Sinarbacks is that Sinar refrained from adding any noise or heat-producing components such as a Display, Battery or any Internal Memory. These are well-known sources of heat and without them; the image quality obtained is frankly better. And finally—a Sinarback device lasts longer, is more stable and consistent shot-to-shot because it employs both Active and Passive cooling—and a cooler sensor and electronic components will last longer—thereby protecting your investment for many years to come. Compatibility
    Sinarback eXact is 100% compatible with Sinarback eVolution75/86 H. It can be used with existing adapter kits and other Sinar accessories. For best results we recommend the use of the Sinaron HR lenses.

    About The Sinar eShutter
    The most important features of the Sinar eShutter are:
    - Renowned Swiss quality – designed and manufactured at Sinar in Switzerland
    - Fastest shutter speed: up to 1/125 second
    - Widest-angle digital photography with view cameras is now possible
    - The 7-blade iris diaphragm provides a nearly circular aperture
    - Modern components and electronics permit a very compact and light-weight construction
    - Can be built into diverse camera platforms of any make
    - Conversion of existing O-size lenses, including Schneider and Rollei lenses
    - Complete functionality with all brands of digital backs
    - Control via PC or Mac – as well as remote control via Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

    The Sinar eShutter is a true 'open-system' shutter in size-0, which may be used in the following ways.

    1. With Sinar's eShutter Control App on the Capture Computer with the installed USB driver.
    Allows direct control of both aperture and shutter-speeds in 1/6, 1/3, 1/2 or full f-stop increments.
    Shutter speeds from 1/125 to 32s, also in 1/6, 1/3, 1/2 speed-increments.
    Simply run your choice of capture software and application-switch between Apps!
    When using CaptureShop, start the Sinar eShutter Control App before CaptureShop to pass full control over to the Sinar eShutter Control App.

    With Sinar's eShutter Control App installed onto your capture computer, here are the keyboard controls provided:

    eshutter_controlssoftware application

    2. With eShutter remote control via an iPad2, iPhone or iPod touch.
    Connected 'as above' but with added remote control using either iPad2, iPhone or iPod touch over WiFi network.
    Simply create or join a WiFi network and run Sinar's eShutter Remote App on the portable device.
    This effectively turns your iPad2, iPhone or iPod touch into a hand-held remote control for the eShutter.
    In this instance, full control will be available from both the eShutter Remote App as well as from the eShutter Control App on the computer.

    3. With Sinar's CaptureShop version 6.1 application.
    In this case Sinar's CaptureShop App controls both aperture and shutter speed directly from within CaptureShop.
    You do not have to run either the Sinar eShutter Control App or the Sinar eShutter Remote App.
    This is the best way to connect existing Sinar backs.

    Approximate Delivery Times:

    New Sinar rePro Camera

    repro_rightIntroduction
    As a result of the rapidly growing demand for digitalization and the related requirement for efficient and effective archiving, the features required in a reproduction camera have changed considerably. Two critical factors in the design of a modern reproduction camera are convenient operation and the utmost in precision. And where a high volume throughput of subjects is to be digitized, an optimum workflow is a must because exposures which need repeating cause serious delays and add considerably to costs. These criteria were taken into account as major considerations in the development process of Sinar's new rePro camera. The result is a camera that meets the requirements of Reproduction Photography without limitations.

    Precision
    repro_detailThe legendary precision of Sinar view cameras for analog and digital photography is widely known and highly valued by professional users around the world. And the subject of sharpness has become significantly more important since the advent of digital photography. Therefore, to be assured of optimum results, it's especially important to use a camera which offers the right mix of features in terms of precision, stability and convenient operation. The new Sinar rePro is based on existing components of the legendary Sinar p3 camera. Its compact design is ideal for digital reproduction photography and this increases the overall stability of the camera for pixel-precise settings. Operating the ingeniously fast fine-focusing drive, make it very obvious that this high-end camera was crafted with high precision and the tightest of tolerances. The newly developed fine focusing drive is based entirely on the demands of digital photography – one full turn effects a change in distance of only 0.5 mm.

    Modularity
    Entirely in keeping with classic Sinar philosophy, the new Sinar rePro camera features the much admired modularity which is often praised by our Users. This means that all lens and shutter systems with the exception of CAB and which are already in use with the Sinar p3 camera, can also be used on the new Sinar rePro camera. In addition to the CPL (Copal) and CMV series lenses,the Sinar rePro will also accept lenses mounted in the new Sinar eShutters. Digital back support includes many Sinarback versions and several backs made by other manufacturers. These can readily be used by means of the appropriate adapters, many of which are already available for the Sinar p3 camera.

    Operation
    When compared with a studio view camera, the operating elements of the new Sinar rePro camera are limited strictly to the essential controls needed for efficient reproduction photography. The camera features a new and improved fast focusing system which makes for remarkably easy operation to assure a much more efficient workflow. When used with Sinar CaptureShop software and the new Sinar eShutters, the automation and setting of both aperture and shutter speeds in software make the operation of the camera effortless. This of course promises consistent and optimum results. One very desirable advantage is that camera precision tolerances are actually enhanced by the elimination of the swing and tilt mechanisms, making the Sinar rePro camera the most modern solution for applications in professional Reproduction Photography.

    repro_left

    Suitable for High-Volume Digitisation
    Sinar Cameras and Sinar Digital Backs already enjoy a significant market share in Government Institutions around the world. Whether used in State Libraries, Galleries or Museums, the Sinar rePro is the ideal tool for projects that require the archiving of important and valuable records and works of art.

    Easy to Use
    The Sinar rePro camera is easy to use whether operated by digital professionals or novice users alike.

    Consistent & Reliable
    Sinar's precision and proven quality promises consistent and reliable results making shooting large-volume projects a breese, by preventing errors in operation which in turn reduces the need for costly re-shoots.

    Whatever your rePro digitisation project may be, it's likely the Sinar rePro camera may be the ideal solution!

    Sinar CaptureShop 6.1

    New - eShutter is supported
    The most obvious change of CaptureShop 6.1 is the support for Sinar eShutter systems.

    CaptureShop 6 is an enhanced version of CaptureShop 5. All bodies and configurations
    supported by CaptureShop 5 are also implemented in CaptureShop 6.
    DNG Support
    The most obvious change of CaptureShop 6 is DNG. DNG is the new raw data format of
    CaptureShop for image storage. CaptureShop 6 is not a general DNG-reader though. It only
    supports DNG-files that have been created with CaptureShop 6. Currently no other DNG-files
    can be opened. This is also true for Sinar eXposure files or files directly captured by Sinarback
    eSprit 65.
    That being said, CaptureShop 6 DNG files are 100 % conform to the DNG standard and can be
    read by any DNG capable reader/converter. Please be aware, though, that some raw
    converters don't fully support the complete DNG standard and can only open 1-shot images.
    Multishot images are a special case in the DNG specification and might not be loaded correctly.
    Converters that are known to support multishot images are Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Camera
    Raw and Iridient Raw Developer.
    Conversion of former CaptureShop image formats
    With CaptureShoph 6 it is possible to convert images captured in previous CaptureShop
    versions to the DNG format. Both, 1-shot and multishot images are supported. The conversion
    has been tested carefully. Due to the numerous CaptureShop and Sinarback versions we still
    expect some glitches though. Please give us feedback if you encounter any problem with your
    conversion.
    Multicore-Interpolation
    CaptureShop 6 supports the multicore-architecture of Apple computers. Opening and exporting
    1-shot images is considerably sped up compared to CaptureShop 5.

    • Sinarback Piezo Calibration Chart

    The new scope of delivery is valid with immediate effect.
    Of course the hard case for the Sinarback eVolution can be ordered separately at any time.

    Stability
    There is the possibility that on some computers permanent Firewire usage, i.e. use of Live Image, can lead to crashes with Captureshop. From our experience most computers operating under Mac Os 10.5.x are affected. Running CaptureShop with Mac OS 10.4.11 and 10.6.6 and higher (if possible) on the same computer performs stable.
    In general we recommend to operate computers with G5 processors under Mac OS 10.4.11 and Mac OS 10.6.6 on computers with Intel Processors. If you do not experience such crashes with your configuration, there is no need to upgrade or downgrade, though.

    Keep a level head!


    Introducing the Acadalus CPS-h1 Self- Levelling Tripod Head.

    camera head
    If your think it's all been done before, think again.
    The CPS-h1 self-levelling camera head is the brainchild of the team at Acadalus, Carl Koch's new company which is based in Schaffhausen Switzerland.

    The idea was "Instant levelling and precision camera adjustment at the touch of a button."

    • Why waste time fiddling with tripod legs and inaccurate bubble levels?
    • Level your camera in seconds with microprocessor-controlled precision and perfect repeatability.
    • When your schedule is tight but your shot list isn't—time is money.
    • The CPS-h1 lets you concentrate on the picture as opposed to making futile attempts to level the tripod.

    Features
    • Provides a perfectly level platform for panoramic photographers.
    • The precision-machined camera platform features optional 15° click stops.
    • Allows for quick setups on uneven ground and in unpredictable locations.
    • Expandable system can be mains or battery-powered.
    • Camera platform fuctions as a turntable with click stops every 15°, making it great for manual panoramas!
    • Automatic power burst mode for heavier cameras
    • Upside down mode for car shooters
    • Acadalus control unit available soon for custom movements

    software logo Sinar CaptureShop 6.0.1 Released
    CaptureShop 6 is an enhanced version of CaptureShop 5 which now includes native DNG Support . All camera bodies and digital back configurations supported by CaptureShop 5 can be used in CaptureShop 6. The most exciting new feature is the generation of DNG files, which is the new RAW data format for Sinar digital backs. Sinar CaptureShop 6.0 automatically creates DNG files when tethered and this allows you to choose whether post production is performed in CaptureShop as was previously—or rather in perhaps more familiar programs such as Adobe Lightroom, Camera RAW, Capture One or Iridient RAW Developer. Existing Sinar sti files can be converted into DNG's easily, simply File > Save As and a DNG is created.

    Photokina 2010 NEW Sinar Products!


    digital backSinar is pleased to introduce a NEW high-end digital capture device suitable for all studio tasks...the NEW Sinarback eVolution86 H.

    With 48.8 million pixels resolution, it not only guarantees optimal picture quality and color reproduction, but also allows you to take full advantage of proven efficiency and production cost-savings offered by Sinar's expertise in digital back design and workflow optimisation.

    The Sinarback eVolution86 H has the same design concept as the eVolution75 H where heat-generating components such as the display, internal memory and CF card hardware were removed entirely. The benefit is superior capture speed and image quality. And because there's no display screen, there's no need to make shoot-presets on the back as this has been handed over to Sinar's CaptureShop application and is managed in software. The back features a FireWire 800 (IEEE 1394B) port connection between camera, digital back and computer which is state-of-the-art for digital data exchange. This not only makes the speed of capturing faster, but also effectively speeds up the device's Live Image display used for composing and focusing the image on the computer monitor. The back features dual Peltier + Fan cooling for optimal continuous operation, even when things hot up during day-long or double-shift studio sessions. And this too impacts positively towards a prolonged service life, which adds value to protect your investment, long after the decision to purchase the Sinarback was made.

    Shooting Modes & File Sizes
    In 1-shot mode, the Sinarback eVolution86 H has an image file size (RAW) of 105 MB.
    In 4-shot mode, the image file-size is 290MB thanks to the controlled piezo-electric shifting of the Bayer array which provides greater colour resolution and hence more real or truely sampled data—which effectively elliminates the incidence of colour moiré. Four-shot mode provides superior image quality which is easily seen in areas of fine patterned detail such as fabrics with weave or patterns, or perhaps when photographing screened originals as seen on packaging. Another major benefit is that colours are more accurate and faithful—plus colours and neutrals alike are uniformly more even. Actually, one-shot devices simply can't be as good because they lack the superior colour resolution present in four-shot devices and this profoundly improves image quality...but of course it must be a static subject!

    Please make an appointment to come by and see the difference for yourself—seeing is believing!

    Adapter Kits for Sinarback eVolution86H
    Thanks to Sinar's extensive range of Adapter Kits, the Sinarback eVolution86 H is an open-system device and hence is adaptable to multiple camera platforms. It is suitable for use with both View Cameras and Medium Format cameras. The available camera adapter kits are identical to those available for the Sinarback eVolution75 H and the Sinarback 54M/MC. Please contact us regarding current pricing. (supported models are mentioned below in the Technical Data)

    Scope of delivery
    The Sinarback eVolution86 H will be delivered in a cardboard box with the following items:
    • Sinarback eVolution86 H
    • CD with Sensor Reference Data
    • CD with Sinar CaptureShop Software
    • Firewire Cable 1394b, 4.5m
    • Sinarback Piezo Calibration Chart
    • Gray Card
    • White Shading Diffusor 100
    • Cleaning Kit Digital

    Please note that the Sinarback eVolution75 H is now also delivered in a cardboard box. The reason for the change is that many customers don’t use the hard case once the Sinarback eVolution has been installed onto their camera system.
    The other reason is the very attractive pricing which forces Sinar to save some costs!
    The new scope of delivery is valid with immediate effect.
    Of course the hard case for the Sinarback eVolution can be ordered separately at any time.

    NEW: Sinar eShutter – the Revolutionary Electronic Shutter System for View Cameras

    During the Photokina exhibition in Cologne (September 21st to 26th, 2010) Sinar will introduce a new shutter system to the market for the first time.
    sinar eshutter pictures

    The revolutionary Sinar eShutter sets new standards for modern high-end photography!


    The integrated micro-processor controllers guarantee precise settings and very fast exposure times up to 1/250 sec when working with view cameras such as a Sinar p3.

    The shutter technology uses 7 blades instead of 5 blades which is absolutely unique and this leads to a nearly circular diaphragm opening.

    It's built using ultra-modern components and electronics which makes for a very compact and light-weight unit that's suitable for use on numerous camera types.

    The Sinar eShutter is completely integrated into the modular Sinar System.

    Thanks to its open architecture it can also be used with third-party camera systems.

    The previously-mentioned use of modern technology allows conversions of existing lenses of size “0” without
    restrictions and therefore offers very attractive and fast conversion to the Sinar eShutter system.

    The Sinar eShutter may be controlled and operated either from a Macintosh or Windows computer via a USB interface.

    And something entirely new is its integration with wide-spread communication tools such as Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch making its operation not only intuitive but also superbly reliable, efficient and modern. specification for Sinar eShutter More information will be available at Photokina 2010 and when the product is eventualy released in 2011.

    Sinar Photography announces the NEW Sinar p SLR
    Sinar p advantages now available to users of 35 mm D-SLR cameras!

    sinar p slr

    The Sinar p name is synonymous with Swiss cameras that are known for their quality and precision which provide unique features to simply make picture-making easier. The Sinar p is a tool which helps concentrate your thoughts on the image itself—rather than on the intricacies involved in setting up the camera. And it may be suggested this provides you with some additional creative freedom in the realisation of your images.

    The Sinar p SLR was developed especially for photographers who wish to persue the unique advantages and quality characteristics of the Sinar view camera— when using their D-SLR reflex camera!

    The Sinar p SLR can be used with all current Professional digital single lens reflex cameras from Nikon and Canon.

    And thanks to the quick clamping adapter which is included in the set (you may already know it from the Sinar m system), the change from vertical to horizontal format can be performed with effortless ease within a few seconds.




    When the single lens reflex camera is connected directly to the computer via USB or FireWire, the integrated strain-relief provides safety when working in protecting the USB / FireWire socket of the camera.

    A Positioning and Centring aid serves in setting the exact positioning of the digital single lens reflex camera on the optical axis. This ensures that the sensor of the digital camera is positioned perfectly for both vertical as well as horizontal format settings.
    centring aid picture

    And the conversion to a digital back—available from Sinar or other makers—is accomplished quickly and easily by means of one of the many adapter solutions available. And equally, thanks to the universal Quick Clamping Adapter, conversions from an existing Digital Back configuration to the Sinar p SLR configuration is easy, using the various components and is performed within a relatively short time.

    The Sinar p SLR continues Sinar's tradition of offering Photographers a universal modular system in keeping with the latest trends.

    Sinar p3 RV – Now available


    Third-party digital backs now compatible with Sinar p3!

    The Sinar p3 RV has been specially designed and developed for users of NON-Sinar digital backs. The Rear Carrier Frame has been modified in a way which allows users of third-party, NON-Sinar digital backs, to take advantage of the unique feature of yaw-free movements located precisely in the CCD plane. Compromises in focusing accuracy will be a thing of the past!

    The additional platforms supported by the new adapters are:
    Hasselblad V, Hasselblad H1/H2 and Mamiya 645 AFD.
    Of course this solution is already implemented for use with Sinar digital backs.

    For those who already own a Sinar p3 and a NON-Sinar digital back wanting to take advantage of yaw-free
    movements and the correct position of the tilt/swing axes— the Carrier Frame 100 RV can be ordered as a separate
    item. In addition, a matching Sinar p3 Adapter Kit—with the same mount as your digital back— is also required. (see table below)

    The use of the new Sinar RV adaptation possibilities calls for focusing by live image.

    On the other hand, if one prefers to use a focusing screen, the well-designed Sinar sliding adapter solutions are a viable alternative.
    Please contact me for details.

    And native DNG support makes the Sinarback eSprit65 compatible with both Windows and Mac computers when using programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Bridge or Apple Aperture.
    The Sinarback eSprit promotional price includes one adapter kit for either HB-H, HB-V or M645AFD.

    Fast image processing on board

    With the Sinarback eSprit 65 LV, images are captured with a 31 million pixel CCD sensor with an imaging area that is almost twice the size of a full-frame 35 mm camera system. Thanks to their QCIP technology (QuadCore Image Processing), the Sinarback eSprit 65 LV is the first digital back with fully integrated digital image processing on board. Image processing settings such as contrast, saturation, and noise suppression can be set directly on the digital back for fast and easy processing of the captured images.

    Future-oriented data storage
    The high-speed data transfer of the Sinarback eSprit 65 LV allows you to take pictures at fast capturing rates and store them to CF card in DNG, DNG compressed, Sinar RAW, and JPEG format. On top of that, for the best capturing performance and image quality, the Sinarback eSprit 65 LV also supports the well-proven Sinar RAW file format. Alternatively, two image file formats DNG+JPEG or RAW+JPEG can be stored simultaneously. JPEG images can be stored in four different file sizes and two compression rates. Thus, you can send low-resolution JPEG's to the art director or agency immediately after the shoot and process the selected high-resolution images later on. To ensure a reliable and speedy data storage a very fast Sandisk Extreme IV CF Card of 4 GB with UDMA technology (Ultra-Direct Memory Access) is included in the scope of delivery of the Sinarback eSprit 65 LV. To match the capability of this CF card a fast CF Card reader is included as well.

    Maximum flexibility With the Sinarback eSprit 65 LV
    Sinar also offers the innovations of the Sinar Hy6-s65r to photographers who need maximum flexibility in using their equipment. Thanks to a set of interchangeable adapters, the innovative features of the Sinarback eSprit 65 LV are available not only in combination with the Sinar Hy6 camera but also with other camera bodies (Hasselblad V 500 series, Hasselblad H1/H2, Mamiya 645 AFD I/II). Hence, the photographer can flexibly choose their equipment according to the requirements of the current job, simply by changing the adapter plate. The Adapter kits required to attach the Sinarback eSprit 65 LV to the above-mentioned cameras are the same as those already used for the adaptation of the Sinarback eMotion. Due to the fact that the Sinarback eSprit 65 LV is equipped with so-called micro-lenses it is not well-suited to be used with a view camera or other cameras with swing and tilt capability.

    Integrating your camera into your workflow
    The well-received Sinar eXposure™ software – a professional application designed to capture, manage, and process high-quality digital images that is available for Apple Mac OS based computer systems – offers a seamless system integration, allowing you to also control your Sinar Hy6 digital camera and the Sinar digital back remotely. Because Sinar eXposure™ stores images in the standardized Adobe DNG file format, it fits seamlessly into your desired workflow, allowing you to use the software package of your choice to manage and process your images.

    arTec goes "Open Platform"
    Sinar Photography realised one of their stated objectives today in announcing the Sinar arTec system as a truly open camera platform for third party digital backs. Photographers using digital backs from other makers are no longer excluded!

    Whether you're an Architectural, Landscape, Interior, Industrial or Fine-Art Photographer and use a third-party digital back with Hasselblad-V, Hasselblad H or Mamiya 645 AF/AFD interface—the Sinar arTec platform is now fully accessible to you and your choice of digital back!

    Technical information
    The Sinar arTec Hy6 and Sinar arTec HB-V have dedicated and unique sliding plates.

    The Sinar arTec HB-H and Sinar arTec M645 use the same sliding plate with interchangeable interface plates for Hasselblad H or Mamiya 645 AF/AFD platforms. So when ordering, say the Sinar arTec HB-H plus an additional Mamiya 645 Interface plate, one Sinar arTec camera can now be used with two brands of digital back!

    Item Numbers: 493.23.000 Sinar arTec Hy6
    493.23.001 Sinar artec HB-V
    493.23.002 Sinar arTec HB-H
    493.23.003 Sinar arTec M645 493.23.292 Hasselblad-H Interface Plate
    493.23.293 Mamiya 645 AFD Interface Plate

    Sinar arTec advantages at a glance
    Sliding adapter
    The Sinar arTec is based on the use of a unique sliding adapter, which enables accurate focusing and 100% safe and dust-free operation. The digital back stays mounted whilst changing from composing to shooting position, making the Sinar arTec unique in the market with their truly professional, safe and convenient workflow. There are no competitors offering similar operational advantages.

    Swiss Quality
    Swiss mechanical accuracy and high precision adjustments for the image plane guarantee that precise focus is exactly at the chosen position. And all lenses are mounted and calibrated to perfection in the factory!

    Bright Fresnel ground glass
    The included precision and adjustable focusing magnifier enables exact focusing—just like in the film days. The integrated Fresnel ground glass is very bright and is therefore ideal for composing and focusing. For outdoor shooting live view is not required.

    Format masks define the correct image crop
    Three different format masks deliver the exact image crop matching the various high resolution CCD's available. (22MP, 33MP. 39MP, 50MP, 56MP, 60MP). Format masks are included!

    Horizontal and vertical perspective correction

    Horizontal movements are performed by shifting the back & sliding adapter. (Lateral shift)
    Vertical correction is achieved by shifting the lens and image circle. (Rise & fall) .

    Swings and Tilts (Scheimpflug principle)
    While other camera manufacturers offer lower cost solutions at first glance, Sinar offers a complete solution including better overall functionality. Few additional accessories are needed when buying the Sinar arTec. For tilting, a self-locking micro drive is used. To set a horizontal swing, the lens carrier frame can be rotated in a step-less manner through 360°.

    Wide range of high resolution lenses in helical mount for precise focusing
    (Includes depth of field scale!)
    In high-quality photography, detail sharpness and image quality is the prime reason to buy a large format system instead of a D-SLR. Only large format lenses—and specifically the HR-series—have the ability to reproduce the extreme resolution demands of the highest resolution digital backs available today.

    Sinar Photography to take over parts of SINAR AG


    Sinar – brand and embodiment of modular analogue and digital system solutions for professional photography.

    With effect from October 1, 2009, Sinar Photography AG will take over the Development, Sales, Service and Support divisions for the products of the Sinar brand. Sinar Photography originates from Tekno AG, which has already been marketing the Sinar products in Switzerland up to now. By the end of 2009, the entire unit will be established at Farbhofstrasse 21 in Zurich. The move to Zurich will make Sinar even more accessible to its customers in future. The commitment of Stephan Fässler (CEO of the new company Sinar Photography and owner of Tekno AG) and Erich Frefel (Director Marketing & Sales) will ensure continuity of personnel, also in the continuation and further development of the traditional products under the name Sinar Photography. In an initial step, Sinar AG’s mechanical production was spun off and made independent via a management buyout effective July 1, 2009. The mechanical
    production now operates under the name Femron AG (http://www.femron.ch/). Femron will continue to produce the mechanical cameras and accessories for Sinar Photography.

    The German and Swiss markets will be served directly by Sinar Photography from Switzerland, with support from an existing service, repair and sales office in the Hamburg region. Additional sales support offices will be announced shortly.

    Sinar Photography will continue to provide professional and expert service for its customers. Service and support for the current Sinar product range are also guaranteed for the future with the new firm Sinar Photography, including the repair, warranty and guarantee service for Sinar view camera systems, the digital backs and the Hy6 and Sinar m medium-format camera systems.

    The ongoing product development at Sinar Photography will focus predominantly on the tried-and-tested analogue and digital camera systems. This includes the digital backs, the globally renowned Sinar view cameras for studio applications, and the specialist cameras for architecture and document photography. The continuation of the Hy6 medium-format camera is currently under negotiation, but the existing business alliance guarantees long-term technical support.

    The Sinar eXposure software, which generates DNG files and has a unique shading function specially for architecture photography, will also be continued by Sinar Photography. The declared goals include opening up the Sinar camera platforms further for the attachment of third-party backs. The Sinar products will continue to be sold worldwide via the established and proven distribution channels.

    SINAR TECH INFO 2009/11:  

    On August 28th 2009 Apple's new Mac OS X Snow Leopard was released.
    However after testing Sinar's CaptureShop™ version 5.6.3 and eXposure™ version 6.2 on Snow Leopard with all Sinarbacks, we have come to the following conclusion and recommendation:

    Please do NOT use the above programs with Snow Leopard!

    There are some incompatibilities between Snow Leopard, Sinar CaptureShop™ 5.6.3 and Sinar eXposure™ 6.2 and so for the time being we recommend you continue using the above applications with the previous version of Mac OS X — Leopard 10.5.x.

    News about an updated version will be posted here or on Sinar's site when available.
    Sinar Photography company logo

    Here's a great opportunity to purchase an affordable digital view camera solution which is equally capable on-location or in the studio. This bundled offer represents truly excellent value for a kit such as this—with savings in the order of 25% on top of our existing heavily reduced prices.

    The Sinar f3 Digital View Camera provides you with a wonderfully portable and highly versatile outfit that allows you to capture images without the need for a computer, software or any external power supply—making it ideal for location shooting.
    (Naturally after shooting your images, they must of course be subsequently processed on a computer)

    The Sinar f3 Digital View Camera outfit consists of the following items:
    1 x 491.91.000 Sinar f3 view camera
    1 x 552.36.011 Sinarback eMotion 54 LV
    1 x 552.36.082 SB eMotion/Sinar m Adapter Kit
    1 x 551.64.070 Trigger Cable SB eMotion
    1 x 443.83.109 Sinaron Digital 5.6/90 CPL lens
    1 x 493.54.030 Focusing Screen and Back Holder
    1 x 551.32.086 Focusing Magnifier 3x
    Total Outfit Price $19,990.00 including GST

    Featuring the excellent Sinarback eMotion 54 LV with 6GB memory, it can easily store many hundreds of images internally. However, the eMotion 54LV also includes a CF card slot for truly unlimited storage capacity. And because this system's only power-reliant item is the eMotion back itself, the entire system can operate on a full charge—for at least one full day's work—thanks to the included Sinar 2400 mAh V290 battery.

    To set up your image, simply use the supplied focusing screen and magnifier included in the offer. And once you're happy setting the plane of focus—and have determined your working aperture using Sinar's included depth of field scale—it's a simple matter to swap the focusing screen and digital back positions as can be seen here...



    For studio use—for those wanting to add the additional capability of "image management" to their shooting expertise—the Sinar f3 provides you with full sharpness and perspective controls—thanks to its amazing Sinar view camera heritage. And the 54 LV back also provides the additional feature of "Live Image" focusing—which is ideal when shooting in controlled light indoors and with the back tethered to a Mac computer running Sinar's eXposure software. This offer is valid from September 1 to November 30, 2009, or while stock lasts. Sorry, the bundled kit's contents cannot be altered.

    If you're unaware of just how good it gets when printing your own images with a RIP such as Imageprint, the release of version 8.0 provides even more compelling reasons to consider doing so. More information about the wonderful features of Imageprint and NEW features introduced in Version 8.0, can be found here.

    The Sinar arTec camera system was enhanced today with the introduction of the arTec Lens Shade.
    When a lens is used without a lens shade, extraneous, or non-image-forming light can cause undesired internal reflections resulting in a noticeable reduction in contrast. A lens shade therefore is not a luxury in professional photography; it is mandatory for best results! Sinar is now offering the Artec Lens Shade 493.23.041 which can be directly mounted onto the lens by means of the proven Sinar filter thread adapter ring system. With this system, the lens hood can easily be rotated and set to the desired position.
    More information can be found here:

    Mr. Erich Frefel, Sinar’s marketing Manager, let us know today that orders exceeding all forecasts have placed the arTec camera and many lenses into a backorder situation. This is a temporary situation which of course is no surprise to us at Capture Scan Print! Indeed, we too are enjoying the use and success of the arTec camera as much as our clients do!

    Maybe it’s the inherent design of the arTec that’s reason enough to want one?
    This is a camera conceived around a sliding back—with integrated ground glass screen and 3x magnifier—which in turn offers you image management tools employing Rise & Fall, Lateral Shift and of course Tilts & Swings...and with all lenses!

    In addition there’s lens support from 23mm to 135mm in familiar and friendly Copal mechanical shutters with silky-smooth and precise helical focusing mounts. And if that isn’t enough reasons to consider buying one of these cameras, the “icing on the cake” is the addition of such an intuitive and well-conceived software workflow which entirely eliminates lens casts and centrefold issues—and which optionally gives you control over the degree of illumination or edge fall-off—as required for each image’s preconceived tonal balance. With features like that, it's easy to see why we like it—and we like it a lot!

    Normal deliveries are expected again in September. Therefore the sooner you place your order—the sooner you’ll receive your camera. For those who have placed orders, we thank you for your patience and confidence in choosing Sinar arTec. We assure you the wait will be well worthwhile as we’re absolutely convinced the arTec represents a true Sinar experience, as usual.

    And finally, we confirm that we expect this situation to be only a temporary issue affecting immediate supply of the Sinar arTec—which ironically is a consequence of the camera’s success!

    A new version of Sinar's eXposure™ software version 6.2.0 has been released and is available for download from this site — or from Sinar's site after you register.

    The most important changes to this version are:
    – A new user configurable Noise-reduction filter has been implemented.

    – A "Session" tool has been implemented that allows naming a new capturing session in advance.

    – The "Crop" tool has been improved and new respective features have been implemented (e.g. the color of the frame, new scaling units can be selected,)

    – A new "Detail" widget has been introduced.
    This allows performing everything that can also be done in the full image (except selecting a crop), but quicker.
    The processes involved are: Zooming in and out, Moving a crop, Setting the gray balance,

    – The Live image is now displayed in a separate widget and can be moved at will.

    – The incompatibility issue that existed with the drivers when a Sinarback 54 MC/M was operated with Sinar CaptureShop™ when Sinar eXposure™ was also installed on the same computer has been resolved.

    – The Graphical user interface has been given a new look and some problems occurring with the current look have been solved.
    For a list of all changes and further information regarding Sinar eXposure 6.2.0, please refer to the ReadMe file which is also included within the installer.

    CUSTOM FINE-ART SCANNING SERVICE

    From Colour Transparencies | Colour Negs | Black & White Negs
    Price List | Contact |

    About This Service
    For transparent originals there are two methods of scanning; DRY-mounted and WET-mounted. The image-quality differences–plus some additional features found in the Kodak Supreme scanners we use—can be seen here.

    Scanning resolutions supported up to 5600 dpi optical for all formats.

    All scans scanned at the requested optical resolution—never interpolated.

    Scans supplied as 16-bit per-channel RGB tif files.

    No sharpening applied.

    Black & White images scanned as RGB positives.

    Full-range positive-mode transparent scans up to a maximum density of 4.5D
    The entire image range is usually digitised without clipping—making these superb scans for subsequent editing and creative tonal refinement!

    Colour Management
    All scans produced in a fully colour-managed ICC workflow.
    The Kodak oXYgenScan scanning software is set up to convert from the scanner's input profile to an L* perceptually linear workspace profile. Currently we're using Chrome Space 100 (J. Holmes). More information about Joe's excellent profiles can be found at here.
    In the event another workspace profile is preferred, such as eciRGB_v2—which is better suited for use in jobs destined for the Print-Publishing industry, please indicate your preference when ordering.

    Additional Services
    Print-ready scans available, however, additional charges apply and we'll need to know your specifications for output when ordering.

    Perhaps you'd like to order both Scanning and Printing for your entire edition or show?
    Please ask for a quotation.

    For any other custom scanning or special requirements—please contact us.

    Image-Editing and print optimisation Service available at the per-hour cost of $100.00, minimum 30 minutes.

    How to Order
    To order scans, please download this order form and send it in with your photographs and payment to the address indicated. For transparent scans, please be sure to specify the correct order code to differentiate whether it’s DRY or WET that are required.

    A flat charge of $15.00 applies for CD or DVD preparation per order.

    Courier charges or postage fees, passed on at cost.

    Discounts offered for volume jobs, please contact us.

     

    What You Need to Know

    It is necessary for you to make adjustments to optimise the supplied files for printing.

    The scans are intended to be full-range with more editing headroom than scans which have had end-points set and possibly data clipped.

    Basic dust and scratch retouching is required, less so for fluid mount scans.

    We endeavour to produce the most colour-accurate raw scans possible—not usually an issue for scans made from transparencies—as the transparency serves as a reference, however, this is not always the case for scans made from colour negatives—especially when there are no memory colours present in the image. Since the scanner operator wasn't present at the scene when the picture was made supplying a print or proof sheet to be used as reference with colour negatives is an advantage.

    Please be aware that it may be necessary to cut individual frames from film strips to facilitate the process of fluid mounting. (Some film strips are too springy)
    Please advise if this presents a problem to you.

     

    Reflective-Mode Scans

    From Colour & Black & White Prints | Documents | Artwork up to A3 in size
    | Price List |

    Scanning resolutions of 600 & 1200 PPI offered.
    Resolutions up to 5600 ppi optical are supported for smaller sections.

    All scans produced in a fully colour-managed ICC workflow and supplied as 16-bit per-channel RGB tif files.

    Full-range positive-mode reflective scans up to a maximum density of 4.0—to easily encompass the range of reflective originals. These scans are superb for subsequent editing and tonal refinement!

    The Kodak oXYgenScan scanning software is set up to convert from the scanner's input profile to an L* perceptually linear workspace profile. The one we're currently using is Chrome Space 100 (J. Holmes). More information about Joe's excellent profiles can be found here. However, in the event another workspace profile is preferred, such as eciRGB_v2—which is better suited for use in jobs destined for the print publishing industry, please notify us in advance of your preference.

    CUSTOM PRINTER/PAPER-MEDIA OUTPUT PROFILES

    | Custom ICC Printer Profiles |

    Custom ICC print/output profiles————————————————————————$150.00

    We use the X-Rite Eye-One iSis Spectrophotometer to build your custom output profiles. The Isis makes two measurements—one with and one without UV filter.
    The device uses a new LED light source which is very effective at dealing with fluorescent or optical brightening agents (OBA's) present in many ink jet papers.

    We use Bill Atkinson's custom profile targets.

    You print the targets—we measure the prints and create a custom ICC profile for you to use in any ColorSync/ICC/ICM aware application.

    Profiles are suitable for use with either Macintosh or Windows platforms.

    Simply download the appropriate target files with instructions.
    Please download one target appropriate for your printer:

    For A4 sized printers
    (Target is two A4 pages 21.0 x 29.7cm / 8.5 x 9.3 in);
    use these BA_RGB_IsisTarget_2p_A4 targets.

    For A3 size printers
    (Target is 29.7 x 42.0 cm) or larger;
    use this one-page BA_RGB_IsisTarget_1P_A3 target.

    For output to CMYK devices
    (printing presses, contract proofs);
    use this BA_CMYK_iSis_Target_1P_A3 Target.

    You may need to Option (Mac) / Alt (Win) + click the above links for the download to commence.

    The files are Zipped for Macintosh or Windows users.
    In the event you have problems extracting/unzipping the files, please download and install the latest version of StuffIt Expander for Mac & Windows.


    BEFORE YOU BEGIN (inkjet printers)
    Please confirm all your inks are firing!
    It's important to perform a head clean, nozzle check and head alignment before printing the targets. The color patches should print as a solid clean color.


    IMPORTANT TARGET PRINTING INSTRUCTIONS

    Do not alter data in the target files in any way.
    The files must be printed at their 100% original size as per the download—even if you get a warning from your printer that clipping may occur.

    They are 16-bit mode files.

    I recommend you use the included type layer to label the targets using Photoshop's type tool.

    If necessary, you can resample to 8-bit mode for printing should your printer driver NOT support 16-bit files.

    Do not assign a profile or a workspace.
    When the target(s) are opened in Photoshop, a "Missing Profile" warning may be triggered which asks "What would you like to do?"
    Please be sure you; "Leave as is (don't color manage) "

    dialogue box

     

    How to Determine Printer Driver Settings

    Opening the targets in Photoshop "unmanaged" is the first step.
    However, and perhaps equally important is " what specific driver settings do you intend to use for the printer and media at hand." Of course this varies from printer manufacturer to printer manufacturer —as each driver is different and each company has their own range of generic media types such as matt, glossy & fine art.

    However, what's important to understand is that printer driver settings control the volume of ink delivered—which black ink will be used—the dithering / quality / print speed settings and the paper thickness settings of the driver.

    I highly recommend you refer to the paper manufacturer's technical data sheet in advance of printing targets in order to determine which printer maker's media is the equivalent for the media you want to profile! For example; if you were profiling a smooth Canson Rag Photographique 310 gsm sheet stock, an appropriate choice on an Epson printer would be "Epson Ultrasmooth Fine Art Sheet"—and NOT a glossy media type such as Epson Premium Glossy in which case the driver would use the wrong black ink resulting in a lesser quality profile.


    No Color Management in Driver

    I highly recommend using "no color adjustment" or " no color management" settings—or their equivalent in the printer driver! I also suggest you save the settings to a preset labeled for your specific media. Doing so makes recalling these important settings a breese and importantly—consistent. The printer must remain set to the settings used to print the test targets—without any colour management—and without any automatic adjustment!
    Doing so almost guarantees the driver will alter your data when the purpose is to set up the driver and keep it consistent so the printer can be profiled.


    AFTER PRINTING

    The printout(s) should not crop the lines of black triangles on each side of the target(s).
    The lines of black triangles should be approximately 203mm side to side when printed.

    target showing alignment triangles

    Please allow the targets to dry, in a dark place—say in a large box or drawer to stabilise for an entire day.

    Send us the printed targets.
    I recommend interleaving with tissue paper or the like. Please make sure the prints don't rattle around where they could scuff together making them useless if damaged.

    Please send the targets without folding them—or you could damage the printed patches!
    The patches must be clean and clear.

    And please be sure to add your Email address so we can send the custom profile(s) to you upon completion.
