I finally got around to ordering my Hoen endurance H8s. Here are some comparisons. The first using a grey card, I set the proper white balance used for subsequent shots. The middle shot is the white balance corrected image, where you can see the Hoens are more amber than the yellow-ish of the non white balance corrected image (too blue clearly). The last shot is out of the camera and converted to jpeg, zero adjustments. Keep in mind, jpeg conversion is not lossless, so the white/mids/blacks can be clipped, but the most important aspects are the white and the amber from the lights.

If anyone wants larger or the actual NEFs, PM me, I'm happy to compress them and send them.
