We have been so lucky to find a source for profile images, and made profiles for 93 different cameras. The advanced profiles are more detailed than a simple matrix operation, which is the base of the “simple” profiles that are already present. This should hopefully give more faithful color reproductions for most cases.
Advanced profiles are available for the following cameras:
You can try out the new profile by installing the Rawstudio daily (which also includes other goodies).
Unpack the profiles into “(home)/.rawstudio/profiles”, and they should be picked up if you are so lucky to have a supported camera.
If you want to tinker around with them, and have access to a Windows or Mac based computer, you can pick up the free DNG Profile Editor, and download the recipe from here. You will also need to convert your test images to DNG, for that pick up the (also free) DNG Converter. All of these are also rumoured to work under WINE, but if you try, do tell us your experiences below.
You might have to re-calculate the whitebalance, since the camera to white calculation might be slightly different in some profiles.[*] To re-calculate the camera whitebalance use the ‘c’ key. This should only be an issue if you change the profile. If you have the advanced profile set as your default the whitebalance will be calculated from that.
As always, feel free to share your experiences. Thanks to Imaging Resource for making colorchart RAW files available.
[*] Rawstudio stores the Kelvin Temperature and Tint, and not the adjustment resulting from this being run through the profile base matrix. You feedback is of course welcome, but the difference would of course be that changing this would have the temperature jumping back and forth when you change profiles.
