Profiles for Nikon and Canon's should be available from the site sometime today.  (see note from M. Tapes in the RSP forum).

I understand they are having issues with their e-commerce site.  It also looks to be $59.  ($49 introductory.)

That's pretty precious.  "Oh, you'd like accurate colors?  Well, we can fix that.  Over half again more, please."

Of course I'll buy it.

I have downloaded them and will give them a try in the coming days...

I wonder if the profiles for the D2x were built based on the firmware 1.01... I would think that they probably used 1.00, which might make them useless since it appears that significant changes were made with the way the camera handles WB etc... Wonder whether it does have an impact?

Cheers,
Bernard

There's only a short free trial window, so I'm not going to dl until I have some material that's more color sensitive than the landscapes I usually shoot.

I don't know how the profiles hang together with the core application, but I can't imagine that the C1 users need to dl new Etc profiles with every change to C1.

They're better.  I need to experiment more.  Right now I don't think I'd buy.  Some of my trees went from oddly colored to a little neon.

Not a C1 versus RSP response here, but just on Magne Nilsen's profiles:

I've been using Magne's C1 profiles (D30,D60,20D) for some time and am not sure if the "film curve" was the one originally used to create the profiles or what since the "extra shadows" curve seems to give a more accurate response.  My point being that with each release of C1, there seems to be subtle changes that affect these profiles a tiny bit.  I queried Magne on his web site at about version 3.7.x something and he said that he wasn't aware there had been any changes, though.

With RSP and the color engine dll that bundles all the ETC profiles, the one for the 20D seems to be producing results between lo sat (my preference) and hi sat and the extra shadow curve in C1.  In other words, you'd be hard-pressed to see any difference as far as color goes between the two.  Which is a good thing!

Basically this is all from the perspective of the type of landscape photography I do.
