I recently tried creating a dng profiles for my camera. I am having trouble making a profile for my Panasonic Lumix LX7. I am using Lightroom 3.5 and Color checker Passport 1.0.2. I successfully created a profile for my nikon d5000. For the Lumix, the pictures are coming out with too much Magenta. I made profiles using a cloudy day and profile using 5100k bulbs. Still too much magenta. Any suggestions?
Also, I'm metering on the 3rd darkest grey square and then bracketing. When I look at the files RGB values, a darker exposure gives me a value closer to the value of the 3rd darkest square. How do I determine the correct exposure?
Thanks for taking the time to read and answer.

Eric Chan quite recently suggested (wrong word, as he is the developer or one of them it is not a suggestion, but rather an instruction) that the right exposure is the "brightest" one that Adobe DNG PE will still accept w/o error message... It has some internal checks implemented... so just make several shots gradually approaching clipping in 1/3 EV increments and the most ETTR'd one that PE still accepts is the right one... brute force... if you are using the software from XRite then I do not know the answer, but I 'd suggest to try Adobe PE first and then try the shot that was the best for Adobe PE for XRite profile creator.
