I am trying to understand what is the best colour profile that I can generate from a ColorChecker for calibrating my camera. I always used ICC colour profile standard but now I saw also DCP colour profile standard that has the possibility to use two illuminants. From this article it seems that they are better compared to the ICC profiles because they allow using multiple illuminants I wanted to understand what are the differences between the ICC and DCP colour profiles and what are the advantages of one and the other.


Beware that generating a good profile is tricky. You need perfect illumination, (spectrum, space homogeneity, color temperature, luminosity) which is usually at the fringe of what an amateur can do. This will be your limitation before being your choice of profile format.
