I have spent some time working with the X-Rite Colorchecker Passport to produce camera profiles. I have had much exchange with X-Rite and watched Michelís video. For me, there are some strange things going on.
1. From what I have read, the hardware and software are supposed to make a profile for that particular camera shooting in that particular light.
2. I find from Michelís video, and other sources, that after jumping through all the profile making hoops, one must then also set the white balance in the application (Lightroom, etc.).
3. In the video, that white balance was set by using the eye dropper on the appropriate square on the Passport on the same image which generated the profile in the first place.
4. Since the target from which the white balance is made is available to the profile making software, why isnít it done in the profile making process? Isnít that what a profile is all about?
