I recently purchased an IT8 target and I created the ICC profiles for the camera I own. At the moment I consider the profiles as "experimental" and I am waiting for another sunny day to re-take pictures of the target. Though, the profiles look good to me (but not yet as good as I would like) and if any of you is interested I will be glad to share them: you can contact me through the e-mail you find on my website: http://albertoferrante.name
In any case I will make the profiles available for download on my website as soon as I have the feeling that they are good enough to be published ;-)
I forgot to mention that I really thank Pascal de Bruijn for his tutorial on generating camera profiles: I found it very useful!
Even though, I made some small variations (besides using ArgyllCMS instead of using LPRof as Pascal suggests in his latest version of the tutorial).
Well, I've made some adjustments to my profiling process. I highly prefer the CMP target, as it's matte, and can easily shot using a strobe. So it's much more convenient…. Argyll 1.1.1 now has a -a m mode, which I like.
I also tried to recreate the Canon EOS basecurve (ment for profiles made with -q l -a g).
Would you be willing to share the IT8 shot RAWs with me (especially of the 40D and the 7D)?
Pascal de Bruijn
Thanks for these info and for the curve, Pascal.
Yes, I can share the raw files, but I suggest to wait until I can re-shoot them better.
I don't mind…
I'd love to inspect the current ones… maybe I can give some pointer for the re-shoot?
Pascal de Bruijn
Pascal, I sent you a private message on Flickr with the address of the 7D raw file ;-)
I uploaded the profiles on my website: http://albertoferrante.name/tips.php
I still consider these profiles to be "experimental" and I would be glad to receive feedback on them.
I just wanted to notify you that I have updated my ICC profiles for Canon EOS 350D, 500D, 40D, and 7D. The update is quite important as, with the new profiles, highlights are handled much better than before. Please notice that different base curves in the highlight may be required.
The profiles can be found at the usual place (please, see the readme.txt for instructions): http://albertoferrante.name/tips.php
Feedbacks on the new profiles will be appreciated!
