I haven't noticed anything of this in the"mainstream" Mac press, but with the advent of the retina screens comes a new (old) DCI-P3 Color Space which may just sneak up on anyone for whom such things are important. (Although I imagine industry professionals will be well aware, I'm fairly sure most casual users won't be.

Instead of trying to reinvent the wheel, I'll just send any who care to Thom Hogan's explanation here: http://www.dslrbodie...olor-space.html

Perhaps Thom should be given credit for the "Tip of the Month"!

Cheers,

I have a briefing with Apple this afternoon about the new iMacs and will ask them specifically about this.

Thanks Anthony, I suspect that not making it news is Apple's way of making improvements under the hood that 90% of it's customers have no need to lift!

I had my briefing. I did;t get anything useful other than words that amount to "it's really for pros but it will make photos awesome for everyone".

I think the link you posted is probably the most useful thing I've seen about it.

Thanks Anthony, I must remember to look it up in the likely event that a retina mac happens at some future time. At the moment it's only the desktop screens, not the laptop ones I think.

Cheers,

The latest from Thom Hogan:

Short comment:

itís now been verified that the latest iMacs (plus the 2014 iMac Retina and the MacPro) support 10-bit graphics drivers (the latest iMacs also support the wide DCI-P3 Color Space). The only software I know of that takes advantage of this expanded color capability at the moment is Preview and Photos, but I doubt it will be long before we see more.


Even more interesting...

Cheers,
