Who will be doing colour calibration and using what?

I suggested to Mike that they hire Ken. Plus, he has experience with this now.

His setup on my meet was nothing short of Spectacular. Just awesome.

I'll check into schedules and stuff tomorrow. No promises, but I'll try.

Curt

Spoke to Art, says he won't be attending... but he has graciously welcomed me to visit so am hoping I can fit it in after your place Cliff before the meet.

Gino. You can't "see" the master at work. He works in the dark!

5am-9pm PST is 8am-midnight EST, so you could stick to your usual schedule and only miss the after-midnight BS sessions.

No drums, but there are 2 Strats, a bass, and an acoustic guitar hanging on the wall downstairs, plus a set of keyboards... my boys are just starting music lessons, so the soundproofing in the basement will REALLY pay off in the next few years.

Hmmm... maybe I should be smart and stay at Haflich's house myself.

Maybe some of the locals could take advantage of Ken's calibration skills and get him out here for the whole week leading up to the event. That way we can also have him here for the calibration.

I'm definitely up for it!

That's a smart opportunity for people in OH, PA, WV, VA, MD looking for calibration.

OK, now _this_ I want to see. When do you figure you'd be there to do the setup/calibration?

Curt,

I'll have to get with Mike and figure out who'll be doing what in the setup, but I'd like to see it ready to go the morning before the event. Tweaking at Cliff's the day of was a little too last-minute for my taste.

Wow, I might have to go just so I can learn how to use the PR-650 I won on e-bay for $65.00 plus shipping

Chip. Your mom would be proud to know you finally won something!
post #74 of 526
Chip, we could do a little Ampro caravan on down there... drive one of your fuel trucks, use it as a bomb in case we think the blend has surpassed the beauty that is the Ampro.

I'm just trying to let Chip down gently for when my MP modded 9500 gets here I will say though that working in the Ampro case is by FAR the easiest time I've ever had. I really like the case design.

"Let me down" I'm thrilled that that you feel justified. Of course, if it takes a modified 9500 to sway you from your 4600, that's cool. But, if you're so certain that you've made the right choice, load that 4600 in the back of my pick-up the same day your 9500 shows up. I want to snag it before you realize the mistake When Should I show up? I'll even let you keep the lenses.

Chip, if I ever get rid of it I'll give it to you. Honestly. If we had ever gotten the Marquee neck board mods to work for the 4600 to improve the bandwidth I think it would have really made the 4600 shine. But I never could manage 1080p out of mine.

Mark's place now appears booked with two guests. Time to tell my wife. If I ask first, she might say no. Now it's informatory rather than permission seeking. Life is good.
