    Purple comparison shots

    I fully intended to make this thread years ago, and I'm sorry that my camera is not good. I will try to redo this set with better optics.

    The layout is, clockwise starting at the top : Ultraviolet Dyneema, Aubergine Ballistic Nylon, new (late 2009+) Plum Cordura, all on the old Plum Cordura (decorated with fur . . . of course, like everything is!).

    With flash :

    The Ultraviolet looks realistic in this one, but the rest look more like the next one.

    Without flash :

    To me, this is the most color-realistic.

    And an outtake :

    Rosalind trying to 'help' by walking over the bag & pouches. And licking them. Because of course that's helpful. (Note the big pink blur of her tongue.)

    I think the sheen of the Ballistic Nylon makes the Aubergine appear more red in photographs than it does in real life, and the new Plum looks significantly darker than it really does (to me).
