EOS 1d images print better yet look worse on screen than my d60

    Is there a reason for this? It doesnt make sense at all to me, but its the
    truth! I was worrying about a set of prints that I took both cameras to.
    When onscreen the shots I really wanted were of the 1d - there were similar
    but lesser shots with the d60. Onscreen though everything looked better with
    the D60 - colours, resolution, sharpness etc.
    However getting back the files from the lab was amazing. The 1D were far

    As they say in the USA "go figure", but does anyone have a more scientific

  2. Check out the 1D forum pages on www.dpreview.com for about 2-3 years ago
    (There is a search facility.). I remember a chap going by the moniker,
    AdamT, who said much ths same about the 1D. I recall theories about
    strength of anti-aliasing filters etc. Have you tried any USM sharpening?

  3. Either:

    - you need a new display, or a better calibrated one


    - the lab "tarted up" your prints for you

    The odd thing is I have my machine calibrated for the lab profiles.
    The tarting up is a viable option also - perhaps it is to do with the
    sharpening and colours that most cameras naturally put on there?

    Thanks for the reply.

    As they say in the USA "go figure", but does anyone have a more scientific
    Other than a color space mismatch, this would be hard to diagnose
    without seeing the images. Perhaps you could post some samples?
