Looks like our buddies in the EU got these first ; mykeyboard.eu.

More photos to follow, as we have a little more time.

I'm still waiting for the freight info from GMK.

The mods look nothing like the render, I will hold on to my judgement but 80% chance I'm asking for a refund at this point.
3 different people with 3 different cameras/phones took 3 pictures. And they look nothing like the render. You can't tell me it's the lighting anymore.

Some sets are just very difficult to capture accurately in pictures. For example, barely any pic of Nautilus looks like it does in person. Same with Yuri. I hope these pics are just wildly inaccurate because they look absolutely nothing like this set was intended. The alphas basically look like tu1..

Judging by the abundant reflection the lighting on that picture is also just way too strong.

Holding my judgement until I see them in person, no use getting bent over potato pictures. The caps aren't going to change at this point, and colors have always been impossible to tell in every GB I've been in.

I could be wrong, but I think the colours are not supposed to match the renders anymore. If I remember correctly, they got slightly adjusted from the usual solarized dark colours to a different tone. Claim was that the original colours do not translate well enough to real life. Of course that has nothing to do with the caps not matching the samples (no judgement yet), but atleast for the renders some deviation was intended, wasn't it?

My first thought too...

With that said, I could probably live with a tad brighter alphas, not a fan of dark(=black) mods though. Thankfully I have a "Sky Dolch"-modifier kit laying around if it turns out the keycaps looks like the pictures.

My personal thoughts:
Legends are lighter than on the renders.  Mods are darker than the renders but in person the set still stands.  But it matches the color samples for as far as I can tell. ( sampling was done by keyclack and or thesiscamper)

I have to say it looks much nicer now I see it in these pics even if they are potato pics. I've got some TU2 keys on a board here and I much prefer the look of how its coming out there. Also - glad to get my tracking earlier today!!

That's everything I'd expect from a true solarized dark theme. Much lighter and blue-er than the renders but way more accurate IMO.

Mods still look a little dark and alphas a little light, but that's showing better contrast than previous pictures.  Might be on point in person.  will wait and see.

On that pic you can actually see the bluish tint to the modifiers a bit with the case next to them. Very subtle.

I just want to explain the difficulties in judging colors by photograph, and even choosing the Pantone Codes.

First, Pantone Codes are constants, you either find (rarely I imagine) the exact color you wanted or settle for something close. It can be brighter, it can be darker, and it can have a different hue. You come up with hex codes and try to find the closest Pantone codes that already exist.

Second, it's hard to photograph objects that reflect light, actually it's hard to photograph anything at all with accurate colors in mind. You can take a photo of the same object and get different white balance every time if you use a phone. Even using cameras mean it depends on how the camera interprets colors, and using different cameras result in different colors. Now if you take into account viewing on the hundreds of different monitors then yeah, nobody is really looking at the same thing.

Third, renders are approximations that still rely on computations based on the real world. I don't have the lighting set up of your room, it won't be the same for better or worse. Even changing where the light comes from can drastically change the look of a rendered object.

Anyway, here's a photo of the mods sandwiched between a black GMK and black Maxkey cap. Please note that the colors in the photo are brighter than what I see with my own eyes, and my montitor is at 45% brightness.



Here's a photo of the first photograph above, compared to the caps held in my hand. Note that the caps in my hand are now darker than how I see it in person.



I find that color matching is hard, and I just hope seeing the set in person will change people's minds about how they feel about the color selection. Also, if you check the renders the mods are almost black, so I'm not sure why there are complaints about it now.

As someone who commented on the "darkness" of the mods, I just want to clarify:

The mods ending up dark is not be an issue for me, if the alphas are dark as well (as solarized is a color scheme based on low brightness contrast and that is one of the reasons why I love the color scheme and got this kit). I do actually like the color of the alphas in the pictures so far though, so I don't see that as large of an issue (as I can probably pair them with other mods in the case of the contrast being too large for my personal taste).

I will wait with my judgment until I get the caps though, as I'm fully aware of some colors being hard to photograph (cyan being one of them, which I guess doesn't help for this set), and that getting the right brightness in a picture also is hard (especially with a mobile phone).

That looks strangely suspect.  I suppose I'll have to wait for them to arrive.  This seems similar to GMK Plum (typing on it now), in that the way that they look in RL is nothing like any of the pictures.

There sure is a lot of "reserving judgement" in this thread. :)

There have been several photos in different lighting conditions but reserving judgement or not, these colors are far less subtle than planned which seems to be a pretty common problem with GMK group buys. At some point people are going to have to pump up saturation in renders because they've been extremely inaccurate lately.

I will admit as a buyer of this set I find these photos very disappointing—even the nice photos jchan uploaded make the set look far too bright and cartoony. Oh well.

Received my set today. While the alphas do look more vibrant under bright light, they look absolutely perfect in my dimly lit room and it's really everything I've hoped for. The modifiers look black at first sight but noticeably cooler than other blacks, and the blue shows as a sort of iridescent glow when light reflects off of them. Overall, I love how it turned out. It really emits those bluish wet tarmac at nighttime vibes and makes me want to play need for speed carbon again.

All pictures so far don't even come close to doing justice to how great these look under dim light.

I think it would be interesting to have a direct comparison for the modifiers. Is anyone able to post them next to something like N9-Modifiers (=dark grey)? N9 is used for mods in Hydro, Skydolch, Terminal, .... The pictures always make them look like something between N9 and CR with zero blue tint in them.

I have SkyDolch and will/can post a picture once I get SD if nobody has done it by the time I get it.  Looking at photo's tho I can't tell the difference.  SD mods might be a little darker compared to Sky Dolch mods but some pictures they also have hint of blue and others they are black. Only the first picture does not have a filter on it (I can't find the originals).  The first and second picture is a board with Ocean Dolch Alphas and Sky Dolch mods and the third photo is in reverse.

***NOTE***  SD is not pictured in anything shown below.

I have SkyDolch and will/can post a picture once I get SD if nobody has done it by the time I get it.  Looking at photo's tho I can't tell the difference.  SD mods might be a little darker compared to Sky Dolch mods but some pictures they also have hint of blue and others they are black. Only the first picture does not have a filter on it (I can't find the originals).  The first and second picture is a board with Ocean Dolch Alphas and Sky Dolch mods and the third photo is in reverse.

The dog is much lighter and less brown than the renders.

We definitely tried for a darker red on that one.  The lighting plays a big role in his appearance.  :)

Apologies in advance if GMK Carbon mods aren't N9 (they are though, right?!) but I've got some pictures of the Carbon mods next to the Solarized Dark mods.
They're not the best quality, but it's something.

In natural light:

Carbon doesn't use N9.  The dark gray is custom... but close.

Ah, I guess that explains a lot. I couldn't find the color codes for the actual set, only for the novelties in the old IC thread (which were marked as N9).

My set just arrived whilst I was at work now. I can take some pictures tonight next to N9 and other keysets as well. I have a GMK colour wheel and a few sets too to compare with

Recieved my kits and put them on my ergodox.

Here's how they look:


The modifiers are indeed quite dark, this is one (on the right) compared to some black SP DCS blanks (on the left):
