"Take a RAW photo of a real color chart outside to get a white point of D65" The simple fact that you have a blue sky will contaminate the real color chart with a blue-ish cast... making the following other steps error-prone.


Hope this helps.. I used to get a Cyan cast which is a similar kind of situation as you have here ( I think ). It turned out the measurement of ambient light during calibration was contaminated by the fact that the walls behind me were painted red. this would explain why calibrator added a little cyan to compensate for the red. You might want to do ...


The camera sensor does not have a color space that allows going back and forth to XYZ since it does not have the same sensitivity curves as the human eye (Luther - Ives condition). The best that can be done is come up with a transform matrix that minimizes the sum of the errors in LAB for the set of standard colors (Gretab -Macbeth). I believe this process ...


You're right; the camera has its own native color space. When a camera is said to use or support sRGB (or Adobe RGB, as many also do), that means that it has native support for transforming its raw sensor data into that color space. When you use an out-of-camera RAW converter, like Lightroom or Darktable, that program needs to know about your individual ...


Since both the camera and your computer are displaying the same file, the problem likely isn't in the way your applications, EOS Utility 2 and Lightroom 3, are handling the files. The issue is most likely in the way the camera's display system and the computer's display system are handling the files. You can't do much about the camera's display system, ...


I'v get a Spyder4Elite where you can choose an option to match multiple screens called "StudioMatch". Don't you have the same with the ColorMunki software? I suppose it's named differently.


I recently upgraded to a Canon ip8750 photo printer plus also a new Dell 2713h monitor and encountered the same issue where the prints had a slight magenta tint to them. I also used an HP all in one and although not perfect, the prints were adequate. After lots of trial and error, I used the spyder4 calibrator to recalibrate the monitor to wide gamut. I ...


The setting looks fine, except perhaps turning on the black point compensation, but it probably gets turned on automatically behind the scenes anyways. There are some things that I would try to get to the core of the problem: Print something with printer color management instead of PS color management. Does it come out magenta as well? If yes, the ...


In DispCalcGui go to Options->Set additional command line arguments... New dialog box should open with a list of tools. In the box that says "dispcal" enter -Q 1964_10 and see if it makes any difference. This parameter sets standard observer to CIE 1964 10ยบ, which reportedly improves the results when matching multiple displays with different backlighting ...


Somewhere in your graphic card or monitor settings you have your RGB range set to 16-235 instead of correctly to 0-255.
