I am just asking for some numbers... I understand that a lot of art might be involved but absence of any numbers in the whole profiling thing sounds odd ... |
Jeff linked those numbers. The same one I found years ago via a 10 seconds google search. You know, sometimes people just don't like to spend time when the speaker is the first to be lazy.
Like the recent topic = http://www.luminous-landscape.com/forum/index.php?topic=70491.msg558028#msg558028
"Today I made the usual dual illuminant camera profiles I make for each new model I test.
I find them to be much more accurate than Adobe Standard."
And when I asked how did the author actually found that they are more accurate (how dare I ?!) - I heard the following
I'm the "author" of that thread, which was opened to be helpful, and maybe it reached its goal, taken that almost 30 people got that profile.
I'm not the author of those two comments (which I kinda agree with, time after time), so you're mischievous, at best.
You obviously can check RGB values of the patches against given values. They are objective. What you clearly can't do is to check chromaticity values of colors in a real world scene.
What apparently anyone understood but you, is that these latter tests must be evaluated by eye, and any serious photographer is able to do it.
It doesn't take a genius to figure out which image has more realistic colors and, when the ratio is 9:1 (if not even 10:0) towards the custom DNG corrected, it's not that hard to write a thread like that.
and topic starter did not post the original raw files (he was asked), I 'd assume he was afraid to show how the target was actually shot /"You'd see a CC24 covering almost 95% of the frame." - that is the first sign, right... fill the frame with the target/
I even lost time to explain that on that very thread an still you keep on this provocateur tone. If you really like to test it's been shot at 1,3", ƒ/5, ISO 125 for the indoor and 1/20", ƒ/5.6 for the outdoor.
Let me add a last thing, when it seems that no one replies to your [rude] requests, chances are that either no one knows the answers (I do, and certainly much more do both Mr. Chan and Mr. Schewe) or, more simply, people is ignoring you.
Have fun solving the riddle.
