There seems to be a good analysis of the issue here: http://www.color-management-guide.com/web-browser-color-management.html

If you are using your home printer for example or an ink jet based system, leave your files as RGB all the way. Manual CMYK conversion is specific for comercial printing, where the plates respond exactly as you define the values on the CMYK file; but almost all inkjet and laser printers make their own internal calculations-conversions. If you send a CMYK ...

Short answer first. What is the actual color space of film in film photography? There is none. Now long version. Colour space is a mathematical abstraction. Colour space defines mapping between device values and percieved values. It is not entirely correct to say that some camera (sensor) or film has a colour space because almost no camera's or ...

I foud this graphic on photo.net, in a thread discussing the same topic: I can't vouch for its veracity, but it looks reasonable. Both of the depicted films are a bit wider than AdobeRGB in the reds, but much shorter in green. But see the discussion on the next page, deeply saturatd greens require high densities and thus dark colours, which this chart ...

It depends. (Don't you hate answers like this?) For each kind of colour film, the manufacturer is obliged to find a complementary dye "set" to use in combination with each of the three different wavelength light sensitive layers R, G, & B. There is a direct comparison of photo optical process analogous to electromechanical imaging materials and ...

I think it was the EktaSpace that was invented to hold all colors of films. Since silver halide color papers are still used as media for printing from digital, there are also color profiles of photographic papers floating around the Internet. See https://www.drycreekphoto.com/icc/ for examples. These should give you some idea. As you can imagine, ...

Before the current color systems there was the Munsell System of color notion developed by Albert H. Munsell. This is a three-dimensional, tree shaped arrangement. He prepared all the colors which can be represented using swatches over coated using pigments. The various hues are placed horizontal around a circle of ten major hues. This was followed by the ...

Today those of us not in the color reproduction industry as a profession tend to talk and hear a lot more about certain color spaces that a particular imaging device can or cannot support than our counterparts heard before the digital imaging age. Saying an image device (such as a camera) supports a standardized color space means it is capable of producing ...

Try to look at the histogram of the pictures. Is it unbalanced to the left? If so, you may be tricked by the preview screen. Also, could it be due to the screen you are using, which has poor contrast or low backlighting? Note that, typically, laptop screens don't have much contrast unless you set the backlight high or if exposed to sunlight.

There must be some reason why they don't even bother to mention the possibility of using a camera? Inaccuracy? Complexity? Requirement to calibrate the camera first? Inability to properly calibrate the camera for this purpose (cameras are usually calibrated with ColorChecker with reflective colors only)? Inability to eliminate reflections? Too much noise ...
