Yes. The solution is to make a profile with a higher Tint starting point. This one was called 40T - as it adds an extra 40 units of Tint before you start using the Lightroom controls. 

 

So, your only change to the standard profile was a +40 tint? No mucking with the color tables or the primaries in the color matrices? Cool.

the answer is in there - although not easy to spot


OK, I'll bite.

Is it your custom calibration profile?

I'd really like to know, too.

Typos are a feature, not a bug

For instance if almost all the air inside is in a big dome port and little in the body, than increasing the vacuum will give more weight loss in the dome and thus causes the system to  start tipping forward if it was perfectly balance without vacuum.


This makes absolutely no sense. Did I miss a smiley?

In Topic: Drowned Inon Z240 - anything worth salvaging?

A bit delayed, I did a partial post mortem today. Shows that the most obvious cause of death isn't necessarily the correct one.

I wasn't able to get the electronics out of the housing, but at least I removed the front glass. Which was cracked, but in such a way that it wasn't visible before I took off the rubber thingy around its edge.

I'pretty certain the strobe didn't get any whacks on that particular trip, but I have to admit that such things have happened before.

So the new hypothesis is that a small crack in the front glass has grown slowly - like cracks like to do - and on that day it had grown enough to spring a leak. So the water entered the battery chamber from the inside and shorted the batteries, and since the gas couldn't escape quickly enough through the strobe body, it extruded the O-ring from the inside. And the latter fits with the shape of the O-ring when I dicovered the leak.

At least I feel less of a fool now, so post-mortems are able to bring some kind of closure to those who witness a fatality...
