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

Ramon, Ramon, Ramon... I think it is you who lacks the intelligence here. If you scored 50 points in a basketball game, would you want the newspaper to report that you scored 27 in regulation + 23 in overtime, or just 50 points?

How about if you were trying to monitor the temperature outside in degrees C, and your thermometer kept giving you values similar to 225.6 K + 102.3 F? You would just shake your head and say, huh? I know you would! You don't come across as that bright.

The issue here is consistency. If I am setting a value, then I probably did so for a reason. Maybe I want to see that it is a constant (i.e. Panoramic shots, which your lack of intelligence may preclude you from understanding that you need constant WB values between shots). I also want the software that I have spent over a $1000 on in the last 5 years to please replicate to me the same value that I input to my $5000 camera... not some value that it thinks is the best fit. Because in all honesty, it won't be the best fit anyway; I can and will have to manually adjust curves later to my hearts content to get what "I" feel is the true color, regardless of what Nikon or Adobe thought that value should be.

Ramon, does the immaturity (or the sloppy grammar, lack of reasoning) in this post sound familiar? Hopefully it shows you how immature your post was... people in here deserve to be respected. Jason has a valid question/request... if you don't like it, don't respond... read another thread. Quit acting like an idiot... or go ahead and flame me... show 'em the real Ramon and how cool your are!!

I understand TK's explanation and that the decrypted values will most likely be consistent for consistent Nikon settings. However, I disagree that they ‘match’ numerically or color-wise what my D2X intended. As a software developer myself, it doesn't seem that hard to output the Nikon value (with all due respect TK - I love Photoshop, keep up the great work!). However, since you are already recognizing the camera raw (you must, since you are decrypting the WB), then you could simply hide your variables and show the Nikon equivalent. It would make a lot of Nikon/Photoshop customers happy. If Nikon's SDK doesn't provide you with the WB number, then we can stop posting here and take it up with Nikon.
