Hello rgesualdo,

We field these questions all the time - your best bet would be to visit our FAQ page here: http://www.dsclabs.com/faqs.htm.

DSC Labs has become the pattern of choice in the industry - and this is largley based on the engineering and research that goes into our patterns.

I wrote an article called the Science Behind the Camera Test which appeared in this month's issue of Student Filmmakers Magazine. Perhaps you should read that article to get a general understanding of why test patterns are so essential.

As always, please feel free to email your questions or concerns to mkent@dsclabs.com

All the best!
