I'm starting a new thread because I can't find anything appropriate.
Has anyone doing colour critical work with a Canon 1Ds Mkiii done any comparisons with the latest version of DPP and either ACR or LR?
A quick Google shows that this camera is regarded as having a red (saturated) bias.
Most of my work will include a Gretag Macbeth Color Checker and a basICColor Grey card in some of the shots.
A side by side comparison of the same file opened in DPP and ACR (and having had the White Balance Tool applied to the grey card in both files) shows an alarming difference, to put it mildly.
On my monitor, the DPP file is as clean as can be. The ACR has a strong warm/reddish cast. (Also, after correction, the red value of blue patch on the Gretag CC typically reads zero.)
I've been using ACR for most of my work and have been aware of the problem and correcting accordingly. I'm just too used to all the extras that ACR has.
But, one would think that Adobe could match the quality of the DPP file at least?
Is anyone using DPP in their workflow?
