the attachment is broken for me. cant access the image you attached.

I see it just fine.  It is just a simple .jpg... I guess I can upload it to dropbox or something.
'twas a site glitch, it's fixed. Your attachment works like normal.

Title says it, attachments have all gone 404.
 
Moderators here are pretty on the ball, seems reasonable to expect a fix soonish or faster or later.

Meanwhile, this thread was started to hopefully avoid cluttering other threads with complaints on the topic.

Maybe, how about with FL WB, shooting a continuous burst, maybe at low speed 3 FPS, open them all as layers, selectively switch layers off or on until you find a set with matching WB?

Your file name cracked me up, I know the feeling.

Florescent light flicker, yup.
I just added 91 to my 6D's shutter count for your benefit, well, mine too and anyone else.......

Anyway, florescent lighting only, f/6.3, auto ISO, auto WB, varying manual shutter speeds, several bursts. repeated with WB set to FL, 4,000°K.
Tried shutter speeds from 1/200 down to 1/25, had florescent flicker down through 1/30, could no longer notice it at 1/25. It did made a minor but basically ineffective improvement switching off of AWB. At 1/25, flicker was gone, AWB or FL WB.

Um, uh, is there a player in a white jersey behind the right most shot of the skater that ticked off someone in the middle east? He seems to have had a radical haircut down to his shoulders, his head is missing!! (JK, I see you are in test mode)

A good visual demonstration of why flash synch speed is limited, also why and how HSS can work.

This is no different that the local coffee shop with a box for change to "send a kid to camp", or the grocery store with a big bin to accept donations to the food bank.
I think more like a tip jar.

Very rarely and only when absolutely necessary. I can count on 1 hand the number of times in the last 3 years or so and only in group situations.

The way I optimize a group shot so as to avoid closed eyes, goofy expressions, etc, is I have everyone train their eyes right on my lens and then tell them close their eyes and think of something pleasant.  After a second or two everyone's gaze will relax and take on a natural, relaxed expression.  I then tell them I'm going to count "one, two, three, open" and without moving or changing anything they are to open their eyes on the "open" command.  I count it down and hit the shutter a beat after I command "open".  I get about a 99% success rate with this technique.  I'll shoot 2, maybe three frames just for insurance but can pretty much guarantee that I got a workable shot that won't require compositing to fix.

Excellent!!

It's here....

Probably exactly where you put it in
http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?board=46.0
 
When a thread gets additional entries it'll show in your "Recent Unread Topics".
I found it by clicking your user name which shows your Profile, then clicked "Show Posts".

Or...you could check the posting times and realize that the post you linked was made after this topic was started.

Or...when you clicked on show posts, you might have noticed that the OP's post in this topic was older (the posting times are indicated there, too.

Or...you could read by the reply by the mod indicating the OP had only one post at the time (the post starting this topic) and suggesting the OP try to repost the topic (which he obviously did successfully).   Ok, perhaps the mod doesn't know the difference between the numbers 1 and 2, but I would put money on that possibility.
Golly gee whiz stupid me not noting the posting times. Sorreeeeeeeeeee........

.....Upgraded to CC.......

In LightRoom is the ability to soft proof for printing, does PS CC offer the same?

.....review the Pentax 645z....
Nice review, my bank account likes it not so much though.
Have you worked the Zed tethered with the FluCard, the Image Transmitter software or anything else?

I do quite like your flash solution. If I correctly understand your usage, you're using (or at least have the choice to use) P-TTL with the 540 on camera passed through the V6 plus manual RF remote control of 600s via the V6. Is that a reasonable assessment?
 
Is there any Zörk anticipated for the Zed's system future? Any other TS solutions found?
 
Any idea how Ricoh-Pentax service and support is?

I hate to tell you this, but LR doesn't support 10-bit, at least not yet.  The only Photo software I'm aware of is PhotoShop CS5 & higher.  Here's some more information I just found:

You hate to tell, I hate to learn that even more. Oh carp.
Looks like time to step up and pay Adobe's monthly baksheesh.
Looked at Zoner's website, some script crashed FireFox, um, if they can't even code a stable web presence well, makes me skeptical regarding their software package's code.

...... Go to PS and in Preferences, Performance....
No such options in PSE. But that's ok because.....
.........The transitions should now appear much smoother between the shades of gray.
Opened in LightRoom, the transitions are much smoother.

Somewhat disappointing exercise though, I've spent rather large getting my PC system up to grade, so little software supports that grade.
Opened the ramp file in several programs here, only LightRoom displays it properly.
