Canon DCP profiles
« on: October 25, 2018, 11:19:51 am »

Canon's DPP. Does anyone know where I can find them on a Mac? I have looked everywhere, did web searches.

DPP doesn't use DNG Camera Profiles for fairly obvious reasons. It uses .icc color profiles and in Windows they are in C:/Program Files/Canon/Digital Photo Professional 4/DPP4Lib/icc. How that translates to Mac I don't know.

IF the question was about DPP, not .DCP profiles....
Seems the Google Machine  ;)   found Canon DPP here:

I'm trying out DXO PL 2 which claims to now be able to apply camera DCP profiles. In their instructions they actually show a 7D2 profile. This must one that was created, not the one that Canon uses?

You can create your own if you have a Macbeth Color Checker.
You have Lightroom or ACR? Not sure but maybe you can locate the profiles for that and copy to (wherever??) this product looks to access them.

I have a ColorChecker Passport and LR. I have profiles but I'd like to include camera profiles.

Camera profiles is what this product creates. I’m confused about what you need

I want actual Canon profiles, not Passport ones or any others. That is easy to solve.

I'm starting to think it shares then emulated profiles, not actual manufacture files. At their site it says - DxO PhotoLab 2 now supports .DCP profiles. This feature lets you maintain the same colors even if you switch between several processing and RAW editing programs.

You can't switch between DPP and DXO. Canon's LR profiles are just emulations. Normally when I send a file from LR to DXO I use DXO's generic profile which is pretty close as well. However it comes back tp LR as "Color". You can't apply Canon or Adobe profiles, just those legacy, etc ones. I'll try out an LR profile and see what comes back.     

I did find Adobe's camera profiles. just found Adobe's. Mac has 3 libraries. System, local and user. It is in the local library.

Application support - Adobe - Camera RAW

There are two folders. Adobe Standard and Camera. I find it hard to believe DPP would keep their profiles in there.

I'm still trying to find the Canon profiles to be sure. Working on E. Dinur's tip.

I don't think original Canon profiles can be used. Adobe and it's emulated camera profiles, 3rd party, Passport, etc.
