Good to have a few days off to join the madness here
Also put my Constant Area Crusader hat on in another thread
Anyway, I see what you mean.
At first look, it might be mistaken as lens related. But even at a quick second glance its quite obvious that neither the halos nor the color fringing are lens related.
If this is not just a joke and was actually suggested/discussed here (haven't read the whole thread), i could do a little of my image magic and explain the halo forensics
Halo as a Microsoft gaming franchise is much more fun than halos in the video processing business. Yet they both seem to stick around for a looong time
So that this won't get burried here in the thread, a new thread with these 2 topics seems to be in order:
1. Halos: "Lens halos vs resample ringing vs ICT block ringing vs aperture correction vs CRT scanning artefacts vs plain old EE"
2. Color fringes: "Chromatic aberration vs color fringing vs CCD overload artefacts vs Technicolor color fringes (both general and age related) vs chroma delay vs channel misalignments vs plain old CUE"
Smells like a lot of work, might be a potential update for my site.
What do you think?
