Hi Scarleta. Try calling Marty Haske, the inventor of the SAS2000, at 617-232-5508. I think he''s out of the country at the moment, so leave a message with your contact number and email address. He''ll probably email you back.

Click on the comments tag near the top or the copyright near the bottom and drop Marty an email and ask him.

Marty''s back

Been working on something else with him.....but I asked for you, as he doesn''t allways answer that number.

Closest place is PGS Lab in Chicago....Tom Tashey has one. He doesn''t have any that were sold to Canada

Here is a CGA in your area. Probably a good idea to call him, discuss the assignment, and see if he is able to do what you wish.

While he doesn''t have an SAS most likely, he may have a different colorimeter unit, but also consider that all of those units are machines, and while informative as a back to the human eye, color grading by eye is still considered the "final word".

By hm being a CGA, and a member of AGS, he has to comply to an ethical code, he has to have had color vision exam, take a yearly exam, and have color comparison AGS graded master diamonds.

Hope this helps
