How well do you see color?

Want to make your eyes bleed and at the same time find out how colour aware they were before you started the test? Then why not have a go at the official FM100 Hue Test by X-Rite?

How envious your friends will be when you tell them how well you can perceive colour, or were able to before blinding yourself taking the test.

I believe that's enough procrastination for the mean time, back to the grind.

Now THAT was interesting! I'm pretty sure I don't have perfect colour vision (I seem to remember getting one of those colour vision tests very slightly wrong once). However, according to this I have perfect colour acuity. Result! (Good thing too when I've been working on getting good colour images all day long)

Hmm... I scored a shocking 35, in the male 40-49 "demographic".

I don't know whether to blame it on the uncalibrated laptop LCD screen or on the rose-tinted glasses :-)

Simon, well done you, and your eyes!! I hope the photos and the New Year are going well for you!!

Mentioning those books reminds me of a guy I knew who was adamant that although he was colour blind, that he was still gonna become a pilot. He believed, and was probably correct, that there was a limited number of colour blind test books. As a result he was going to buy every book and then memorise them entirely so that he could pass the medical. I have a feeling, however, that he didn't get too far along the pilot selection ;)

BG, I would blame it on the laptop ;) However, apparently there is a tendency for your capability to differentiate violet hues as you get older?

4 baby!! Yeah!!

I agree about the age/violet thing. I'm sure that the "decreasing maximum pupil size as you get older" factor doesn't help either, the smaller aperture leading to lower resolution.

I did well on the browns, probably due to a lifetime of being dropped in the cr@p. Age does have some... err... benefits :-)
