I did my test on a *very* uncalibrated monitor, so not sure it matters unless your monitor is too dark or not contrasty enough.


Godox/Flashpoint r2 system, plus some canon stuff.

Got 26 using an un-calibrated monitor at work.

My excuse for not getting further - the sun is shining through the window into my eyes!!

26 with no errors.

The 27th was black and I could not find the difference.

Even after looking away and back several times in the allotted time.

Just couldn't find it

35 is my best score. I kinda want to know if it just keeps going or has an end.

I pride myself on being able to see difference in color I like to take this color test once a month.

Ive gotten a perfect score every time. Plus I like to do it after a calibration on a monitor makes me sure it went right. haha

33 on my phone. Not so sure the phone didn't give me an advantage though.

Yay, scored 30, I error - and I'm a senior citizen! Apparently I can see a mosquito at thirty paces :-D

I used an old IBM Thinkpad laptop LCD the first time and got to 25 with no errors, then I could not see a difference on sample 26.
I used my new IPS monitor on my desktop moments ago, and discovered that it was MUCH easier to rapidly differentiate differences with that monitor -- but then I ran across #21 and could not see a difference in time to continue (which I could see on the IBM laptop). 20 and no errors.
It proves that the monitor has a lot to do with 'color' perception...it seems to be a contrast adjustment related characteristic, not merely a difference in hue reproduction.

Not bad for an uncalibrated 10 year old work monitor. I found the key for me was to vary your viewing distance if it wasn't immediately obvious.

Anybody find out how high it goes?

21 the first time, 29 the second. I'm happy with that, being 59 and not having very sharp vision.

22, 1 error, tiger on my un-calibrated work display. (edit) I have multiple displays, tried a different one and was 26, 0 errors, Hawk. :-)

I got a 20 for the X-rite color acuity test, which I guess is OK considering 0 is perfect and the worst is 1520.

I'll see if I can remember to try these out on my home display - not calibrated, but much better than the ones I have at work.

Thanks for sharing!

27 on the first one, and a 33 on the Xrite test. I'm 42 so the Xrite has me lower middle, which I guess is pretty good.
