Subject: Re: ACR v3.2 D2x white balance still not correct

I'm not english native speaker. But still it seems to me that most of this thread is people not understanding each other. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

As far as I understood, there is not a single absolute correct Kelvin number to define white blance. Nikon thinks of it as 5200 K when Adobe, due to differnt algorythms/profiles produces best results with 4800K.

It was many times reapeated here, that taking the number 5200 from nikon into the adobe calculation, it would produce wrong colors.
But as far as I understood, nobody ever asked Adobe to do so. Instead, adobe should go on, use their 4800 number and do their best.
ONLY: in addition, one still wants to see somewhere, that the camera has been set to 5200 in the nikon way of doing things, when the shot was taken.

That is not too much to ask for, is it?

(and taking this a step further, one could even provide a curve for fine-tuning. so that, e.g., a nikon 5200 will be translated to adobe 4850, because somebody likes the result better...)

If, on the other hand, adobe simply can't figure out what the camera setting has been, because of the encryption, thet that could have been stated more clearly and have ended the thread early on ;)
