Unwritten rule of r/mk:

The first person to get a new GMK set and post a photo of it must take it under the absolute worst lighting conditions possible and with every dumb color correction function of your phone camera enabled to make the set look extra ****ty.

And then a bunch of idiots that don't understand how photography lighting works will come along and complain about how bad the color matching is.

Happens literally every single time now.

So true. I still remember that green Bingsu posted somewhere...

Yes, but when the color matching really is bad, all the photos posted make the colors look bad, you get the set in your own hands and it still looks bad...after all that there will *still* be people defending the color matching and telling everyone that the set looks perfect and none of them understand lighting.  This goes both ways.

I still have that one garbage photo of GMK Solarized Dark burned into my eyes. I can't unsee it no matter how hard I try

Edit: this one... viewer discretion is advised

Is it bad that I think the set looks fine there?

Solarized Dark's colors by themselves are fine. But when you compare it to the renders and what people were expecting to receive... oh boy. There's a reason there was so much backlash against the set when it released. GMK Necro is another set that was very off from its renders.

Sure colormatching can fail if you do it wrong or use the wrong methods and did so in the past for some sets.
Sol Dark was probably my favorite fails since it looked nothing like the renders but still ended up being a really nice looking set.
Necro and Plum are a different story though...

But with the technology that Omnitype (and many other groupbuy runners) now use for their colormatching it is very unlikely to get a set that has the colors that far off.
Nebulant (the guy who does all the colormatching) uses a spectrophotometer to match the samples. You can't really get more accurate results than that.

Okay, to set everything straight. Here are two shots I took and white balanced. Taken in natural overcast light.

Ugh, that's awful. Everyone please send me your GMK Dracula sets without opening them. I will take them off your hands for free.

(Those pics look fantastic. Look forward to getting my kit from Omni/Dixie.)

Those look wonderful! Accurate photos are the best photos; no need to boost saturation/gamma when the source material is already gorgeous.

The accent colors are so beautiful and vibrant. They downright appear to be glowing in direct sunlight.

We all know that can be a render when it comes from pikku-allu haha

On a more serious note I would love to see how err module looks

How did you get it if it still on the way from Germany to Omnitype? Or i too late to know they already got it and shipping to customers already started?  :))

Just received my set today. Damn it looks good. Looks exactly like my vscode color palette. Thanks Pikku and everyone else for making this happen.

Got my set on Wednesday, the colors are amazing, exactly how I came to love dracula in emacs, and the highlight colors are really bright popping!

Glad you guys are liking the set, always nice to hear comments :) It does look a lot different in person compared to most photos, the colors are really hard to capture.


Here are some shots of Nightmode & ERR! modules in use:
