Processed through C1 with WB adjustments only, color is not great. Its not that the color is inaccurate, its just odd. There is usually a general yellow cast, certain reds are over saturated (but not all, certain hues that you find in caucasian skin), and some over saturated blues. When I say over saturated blues and red hues, I mean so saturated that they bleed color, they tend to absorb nearby colors. I can usually clean these up in post, but not always, and each frame requires slightly different adjustment. To be frank, it reminds me of a digital elf from 2003. Under strobes it is less of an issue, because the problem is consistent and easier to fix. I've had the D800e for months, but have mainly shot for B&W, using the Canons for people due to work flow considerations. I love the color from the Canons (DS3, 5d2, 5d3).
My question is whether anyone knows of a profile, or if one is being created, that can be used in C1 or LR 4.1 that is actually pleasing?
