Geo 3.5 Colors

Has anyone observed the difference between how rich the colors for the new Geo 3.5 look on the PE website vs. what the colors look like in real life?

For example, the poison green looks very deep and rich whereas in real life it's more of a light green. Just curious if anyone has observed the same. If so, is there someone from PE who would be willing to provide some insight as to why this is the case? This isn't a big deal or a complaint, I just think if there is a way to more closely match the colors online with the colors in reality, an attempt should be made.

Check out the green in this thread:

vs.

The green on the pbnation home page

When I ordered my Poison IV LV1 pictures didn't do the think justice...when I first opened the box the anno floored me...it's such a brilliant Emerald Green coloration...even in dark conditions it seems to almost glow it's so brilliant...I wouldn't judge the anno based on internet pictures. If the a Poison IV coloration is any indication of the richness of other annos, then you guys will not be disappointed in the least!

Yes, almost everything you see has been "photoshopped" (retouched or at the least color corrected).

Consider this:
You're looking through a non-color-calibrated monitor that, if it's a laptop, tends to have inaccurate color representation even when calibrated by spectometer. Colors on a monitor will never have accurate color representation compared to the actual physical object because there are too many variables: Image color, color correction, monitor color, your personal color perception including any deficiencies, in addition to green having the widest spectrum of color perceivable by the human eye. Then, considering most images have some level of retouching and color correction after they're photographed, you have to x2 everything based on the person applying that color correction.

Just for fun, take this color test to see how well you see color.

TL;DR - Things are never, nor will they ever be, as they seem.

Just wondering does anybody know if PE will release more colors for the 3.5 in the near future? Not to fond of the current factory colors at the moment. Hoping after Cup or even X-mas would be nice

The New colorways have been announced with the new Geo3.5s for the year. Naturally the LV1s follow with the same colorway announcement for the year.

Ex: The LV1s came out and the Geo3/3.1(due to early release) followed the same colorways

You wont see a new colorway for the Ego/Geo platform until 2015

What I was thinking, the older marker always follows suit with the colors
