Subject: Re: ACR Calibration


Since even before Photoshop CS, with the original ACR, some have attempted to get ACR to "match" Canon JPG colors...they eventually just give up.

The only good match for a Canon JPG--either an old-fashioned one or one of the new ones with "styles"--is Eos Viewer Utility (and perhaps Breezebrowser.) Even Canon's own DPP uses different math to do the conversion and won't match an in-camera JPG.

Just be happy that there are many different ways to process a RAW...and ACR is one of the very best.

If you, for whatever reason, prefer the color of a particular styled-JPG, then EVU, with all of its clunkiness and ultra-conservative highlights processing, is your best bet. It supposedly uses the same, exact, processing parameters as the camera.

On a side note... using the color checker to tweak ACR is not the end-all and be-all when it comes to your personal taste. Colorimetrical accuracy may or may not be your cup of tea. What it does is gives you a known starting point from which to to begin to tweak and use your own judgement.
