#100. "RE: Testing of D800 with Reikan's FoCal application" In response to In response to 95
Marina del Rey, US
I am having the same problems! Tried with three different lenses, letter sized chart, 13x19 chart, etc. Nothig is giving me repeatable results.
I am wondering about the checkbox in setup for the prior testing method. I have been using the latest beta which it says uses a newer process. Are you also using the latest beta???
Should we roll back?
Right now it is basically useless gibberish and I cannot trust the results.
