I purchased an X-Rite ColorChecker to attempt to get better white balance for my camera (a7R IV). My first attempt at using it has yielded wildly questionable results. Process below. All files referenced can be downloaded in the zip archive here.
- Shoot image
- Use ACR to convert to
Use X-Rite's "ColorChecker Camera Calibration" to create profile
Sony ILCE-7RM4.dcpfrom the DNG
Open original ARW or DNG in ACR.
- Change from default profile "Adobe Color" to the custom one I just created.
Results... beyond horrible. See below (Adobe on left, new custom profile on right). What am I doing wrong?
