What I tried till now resulted in profiles that had at best an peak DeltaE of 17-18 and an average of 7-8. Most of the times the profiles are to saturated and overly reddish... I use Argyll now, after worse results with basICColor Input. Here is the Capture One tethered studio procedure and what I tried: - evenly illuminated ColorCheckerc24 (double checked evenness) - tried different exposures with and for different applied curves - WB with BabelColor target - applied "color view profile (former "Phase One - No color correction)" and either standard/linear - no curves / applied curves to match CC24 gray patches "ideal" values - everything else zeroed, including sharpening and NR - processed 16bit TIF with "Embed Camera Profile" - in Argyll I use scanin -v NameOfMyFile.tif ColorChecker.cht ColorChecker.txt and than colprof -v -D"Camera" -qm -am -u NameOfMyFile in basICColor I also used the... basic settings ;-) keep camera gray and no absolute white thanks in advance for any help with this regards nino P.S.: I basically want to see if I can get decent results with a custom ICC profile, before investing even in a ColorChecker SG. I couldn't get hold of a trial for the ProfilMaker or the MonacoProfiler, not even of the InCamera software.
