Hello people! Just updating you guys, we've got the beige/grey combo for Canvas figured out with the manufacturer. Sampling for the dyesub is also taking place and should arrive soon. Check my website for more info about Canvas' colors and other stuff!

Color correction by /u/ctzn_voyager, displaying the colors much more accurately than the original photo I shot.

Ouch, that looks nothing like the pictures. The colors look way off. Apparently the pictures advertised are renders, but not indicated anywhere on the purchase page. Kind of misleading.

I don't know much about photography and shot this picture with a mobile device, the colors of the keycaps I have in front of me are true to the concept we went for this keycap set. No photos and renders could do justice or be perfectly accurate. The colors are more subtle and cool than what's shown in this photo I shot, as the beige is lighter and the grey is more like a cool grey/blue.

He made them look over-exposed and brightened. Is it correct to be that light/bright?
I've corrected it for you along with the colour correction. If this is the wrong tone/lightness, let me know and I'll get rid of it. It should be correct, though.

When I look at your correction, the keycaps look kinda coffee beige (just like in my picture) and they are not like that in real life. The beige and grey tones are very tricky, just like the Pulse blue tone, to capture in photo... They change a bit depending on the lighting of your room and of course, camera settings. Voyager's correction (despite being a bit over brightened) represents the real keycaps (somehow) a little better. It's just impossible to accurately shoot these colors without proper equipment and my lack of knowledge about photography doesn't help. We have an off-white beige and a cool light grey for these keycaps!

Really? It was corrected on my calibrated monitor, viewed them on a few other non calibrated monitors and it looks fine though slight coffee as you say. I don't have the caps so I can't tell heh. I guess the tones are slightly softer/brighter if voyager's is a little better.

Let me check on a retina display, hang on!

lol, that's not one of the best monitors to check it on, retina monitors are known to saturate colours a little to 'please the everyday eye'. But do it check too haha.

Well yeah, even on a retina display I'd say his accuracy is higher. It's tricky, hard to call who is closer. In any case, none of these pictures is perfect as the keycaps are soft beige and light grey... Really hard to capture. I use a random Samsung 17" monitor (and I have a cluster of dead pixels in the top of the screen) so everything I make is purely by eye and imagination... And physical color chips I have!

No problem, I trust your call! :D was just wondering since it looked brighter on my monitor.

What in the world does that mean? For future reference, unless the set has already been produced in an earlier round (which can be easily verified via simple google search), the "pictures" advertised are invariably going to be computer generated renders. I've actually spoke with Massdrop regarding making that explicit for those that are new to the hobby but with a little bit of common sense it should be obvious enough:
Is it the first round? If yes, renders. Are any of the "pictures" labelled as actual samples? If not, renders.
Bottom line, always assume they're renders if you're buying a custom set. Every time.
