Sure you're not colourblind?

I just did this fun test found on this site:

My score was less than perfect (11, where 0 is perfect) but then, I didn't care to spend all night doing it. After a while it started flickering before my eyes, but I have spent most day in front of the monitor. Also, I'm not sure how much the monitor's quality influences (I do know mine is the cheapest one available!)

What's your score?

Found the link on dpreview.

Edit: I don't care much about spelling mistakes, but in the topic ...

I've seen this before but I did it anyway, and scored 3. I apparantly have a slight problem in the green/blue part of the spectrum.

I have a slight problem there and in other parts of the spectrum. 170.
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined

Exactly the same for me, can't be bothered to try it again at this time of night.

K-3, a macro lens and a DA*300mm...

I scored 7, seems my problem is with the blues, may try it again when I'm not so tired.

I managed 7! Which from what else I have been reading is a very good score.

What have I been reading? And reviewing and editting ... a discussion paper on the testing of dichromats in a safety critical environment and how protanopes, deuteranopes, and tritanopes can be identified and the effects mitigated.

4... but I did it 3 times and got 3 wildly different "error" regions (and score of 4 each time), so instead of showing my colour-perception difficulties I've either show the limitation of the test or my patience!

Colour is a very important aspect of my job, but one of the things you realise is that everyone perceives it differently, sometimes wildly differently, so there is no right and wrong.

Scored zero after ten minutes or so of disorganised tile shuffling. I've always thought I had good colour vision, so I was pleased to get a good result. However, it may be nothing to do with me, but be a testament to the quality of the Dell monitor I use at work.

Quite happy with a 3 at my age... Suppose I could have used the quality of the monitor as an excuse...

Retired at last - now all that time for photography - you would think: wink:
