I occasionally edit entries for brevity, grammar and appropriateness. I enjoy genuine comments, but I despise posts that link to porno or commercial sites. Removing them is a waste of my time.
A word about SPAM:  Evil SPAM spiders prowl the Internet for e-mail addresses to harvest. If your e-mail address has never been posted, and you don't receive SPAM, consider leaving the E-Mail box blank and entering your e-mail address following your name in a format like, "name at server dot whatever." For example, "normkoren at earthlink dot net." That way I'll be able to respond to you but spammers won't find you.

I've had some success lately limiting SPAM entries-- links to commercial and porno sites, which were clogging this page. With luck I'll be able to keep it going.

Dear Mr Koren,
Great information and photography on your site. I see you're working on some software testing tools. I am a Mac OS X users and hope you would consider porting them to OS X.

Very useful coverage of the why (theory) and how (practice) of color management using tools I am beginning to use. A PDF version of the text would be great to have; does one exist? The power of the link is also its limitation, an endless maze from which one has trouble finding the way out.

Hi Mr. Koren: I enjoyed your site and have it bookmarked. My audio hobby is limited to restoring older equipment for best performance with highest reliability at lowest cost. I try to retain original signal circuits but devote considerable effort to power supply decoupling and voltage optimization for each tube section using passive components. Works for me and I like to think original designers would have done the same in absence of cost constraints. If you are retired I hope you are enjoying your retirement as much as I am. Thanks again for your fine web site and Best Wishes. Roy

I worked at ITT Advanced Electro Optical Laboratory in San Fernando, California from 1967 to 1970. There I first came into contact with MTF measurements. We purchased (discretely) and tested commercial lenses for suitabilty for night vision equipment. As I recall we selected Minolta (50mm) lenses made in Japan under a Leitz license as the best in class at the time. My immediate supervisor was a brilliant man named John Grant. Does anyone know him? I hope he is still living.

Great site as everyone else has indicated. I was amazed to see all the countries that people had logged in from. I just happened to find your site from an ad(Picture Window Pro) in Digital Photo magazine. I'm just getting started with digital photography and am very interested in Outdoor settings which most of your pictures are about. We have beautiful Sunsets and Sunrises here on almost a daily basis so I'm doing a lot of experimenting to try to find the right settings as far as apeture,f-stop,iso,shutter speed, etc. so that I can start to take consistently good photographs. Hopefully one day I'll approach the quality of pictures you are taking. I haven't had time to explore your site in depth yet, but I will. Thank you for being willing to take the time to share your knowledge and experience.

Based on what I read here I switched to Picture Window Pro and it has been well worth it. Thank you Norman!

Great website, Norman. I've been surfing your site for a year now and have finally to go digital on the printing side...and won't be looking back! Just brought a Minolta DiMage Scan Dual III and am virtually stunned by what I can do with Picture Windows Pro. In the past I've always doubted why my pictures were not as saturated and contrasty as the ones on National Geographic...now you've shown us the way to finish the other half of making the picture. Thanks for your really informative site, keep up the good work.

Norman: Congratulations on producing a comprehensive site. An old 'graybeard', I am about to ditch my conventional darkroom (but not my cameras) and go digital at the printing end of the production line. I am starting with a clean equipment slate, so I value all your comments, reviews, and hard-earnt knowledge very much indeed. My wife is happy too - she gets a large walk-in closet (which will probably still smell like D-76 for another 10 years.

Great job, Norman. Thanks!

I am just getting into digital photography. Boy, have things changed in the last 25 years. The last time I was in a darkroom I didn't have to worry about the same things we do today. Your web site has helped a lot but I am still not able to get the printer to print even close to what I set-up on the screen. I am reading everything on your web site but I guess it will take a while to understand what it all means. Maybe some day I will get it all working together. Thanks for your help.

Hi Norman,
from time to time I check your website. I need Henry to progress with mine. I have a lot of paintings/photographs that I would like to make a part of it someday. The good news is that I have a friend who is moving up to getting a 7600 printer and wants to sell me his for 400 dollars. He has had it for about 6 or 7 months. Sounds like a good deal. Always like to see what your website is doing. It is vast and I could spend hours with it and all the links. You are doing photographers a real service and sharing your work.

Hope you had a good time in Moab!

Is there any discussion of making a digital camera with tilt and shift mechanics on the image sensor? I just thought it makes sense. A more far-out idea: could optics be improved if the sensor was not exactly flat--spherical maybe. David Fourer, dfourer at comcast-net

I always said digital photography was inferior to film, now I've changed my opinion totally: digital is better than film, the possibilities of the digital darkroom are wonderful.

I've dabbled in photography since I fist purchased my AE-1 back in the 70's. Recently, I got bit again (bad) after buying a Canon G2. I'm completely hooked on digital photography. Or, to better describe it, digital editing. I can't tell you how much I've learned from reading you excellent site, especially the monitor and printer calibration and the background of how all of this stuff works together. Where else could I have learned why my 4 color printer wasn't good enough to reproduce all colors (it used to look OK to me). Being an EE type, I'm able to understand the frequency domain analogies into the "spacial" world. Still there are many curious questions I'd love to ask.
If you need a previewer for your book, I'd be happy to contribute. Certainly, I'm not an expert in optics, photography, or FFT's, but I do enjoy creating beautiful photographs. Is your book intended to be a course text or just a general reference? I'll be happy to purchase an early copy.

Thanks for contributing and assembling all of this useful information.

Norman I have just discovered your site 'accidently' I am very excited about your programme picture perfect and cant understand why I havent heard of it before!@#@# I have PS& etc etc and find it a very difficult programme to learn because even though it is powerful -= it seems that it is in Adobes intrets to make a huge industry out of encouraging all sorts of 'experts' to write books about it which all seem to say the same few things over and over written in gobbledeegook fashion it has taken me a long time to discover this and a lot of money ..so I am looking forward to trying your software and reading your tutorials and buying it. Also Photoshop ISNT photographer friendly..!! SHEESH I am glad I have vented all that :) You amy like to know I arrived here via photonet and I am NOT impressed that a few so called self proclaimed digital gurus have NEVER referred me to your site.

I have found everything on this site to be very interesting. I've learned so much about the digital darkroom. About your new passion in panorama photography.... Is there a term, or could one be coined, for the vertical panorama? We already use "portrait" or "landscape" to define the orentation of *normal* prints. To me, "panorama" is strictly horizontal. We need something equally descriptive for the wonderful vertical shots that appear in the margins of your homepage each time we vist!

PS -I was a shutterbug in my previous life. You know Boulder, CO? I was the custom darkroom tech for Mike's Camera in 1982. I have since, never had a job that I have enjoyed as much. My girlfriend at the time , dragged me back east. I have never forgiven her for that.

Norm --

Spammers are harvesting email addresses from your site (unless you're selling them directly, which I doubt). I have recently begin to get spam at the address "craig-normankoren@deforest.org", which I have only ever used once -- here in this Book. You might want to obfuscate your signers' email addresses (see the user-comments section at www.slashdot.org) or hide them entirely. Sad to say, the spammers are winning by clogging open information exchange.

Cheers, Craig DeForest

Thanks much for building this site. I've just finished assembling the components of a fine print digital darkroom including the Epson 2200 and Nikon Super Coolscan 4000 and your site has been extremely valuable to me as I am not a digital techie by a long shot. I'm sure you know that the users manuals shipped with this equipment leave a lot to be desired. Living in the hinterlands of northeast Oregon leaves me at a disadvantage for local learning resources. I thought Photoshop Elements was a pretty good program until I read your comments about Picture Window Pro. I've now ordered that program and am looking forward to trying it. I've got a lot of nice slides to scan and print and I want to get the hightest quality prints. Thanks again.

Hello, I found you at Altavista. You have wealth of information on your site and a nice design. Greetings from Germany - Paul

I found this site while searching for info on the Canon FS4000 scanner. I now use Canon EOS D-30 & D-60 but have quite a collection of slides that I've taken over the years and I want to put them on CD's and print some of them. I use a HP CP-1700 printer and Photoshop 7.0.
This is a great web site. I've spent most of the day reading and looking at some of the links. What a fantastic resource ... many thanks.

As a retired wedding photographer and a darkroom (wet) mole I enjoyed your information about the digital darkroom, scanners, etc. At this point I am beginning to move to the digital darkroom scene. Thanks again

I would say that your site(s) are the very best I have come across. You have such a wealth of valuable information that, surely it must be being used by many photographers who have recently become involved with digital photography. I applaude your hard work and diligence in providing all of this information. As a newcomer to digital photography, (I am still hanging onto film cameras and wondering when to make the plunge to buy a good digital camera).I shall visit often and LEARN!

Hi Koren,
Great site. You say, waiting
for 24x36 mm sensors for DSLR is in the near future?
Ok, but, then we will wait for the 6x6, 6x7, 4:x5" etc?
Second, please write some pages (if you have the time)
about film proseciing. I think, we can't forget the "old" good negative..
