Or they could have just stuck with RGB. Seriously speaking, the only reasonable use for the yellow pixel would be to "fix" the colors that would result from using a ludicrously blue (9500K .......

FWIW, I don't think adjusting the zoom would be that much of a burden ... assuming that it doesn't also affect the image offset. But, given that most "2.35" movies are more like 2.39 or 2.40,...

Nah ... "google-glass" contacts or direct "lens" implants would be more cost effective ... just remember to disable GPS location. ;)

Actually, most "diehards" would have researched the subject (Quattrons) and concluded that the effort required to calibrate them to something remotely close to REC709 just wouldn't be worth it. ...

I can sympathize with that outlook. But I do wonder how one can *know* what the best settings are, if one's vision is compromised (or deficient) in one way or the other.

What part of statement, "REC709 and REC601/SMPTE-C colorspaces are fully contained sub-sets of the REC2020 color-space," do you not understand?
