Subject: Re: ACR v3.2 D2x white balance still not correct
What I find especially strange about this whole thread is that this issue is not in any way specific to the D2x. It was the same way the the D70 and I would assume all other cameras supported by ACR. (And yes I've used ACR for a while now with both the D70 and now the D2x - no need to accuse anybody of being trolls)
BTW the numbers ACR uses are not "random", you'll find they're quite consistent even if they're not identical to the Nikon numbers.
What Jason and Jess don't seem to acknowledge is that if ACR were to use the "Nikon" number, ie make the WB behave the same as it does in Nikon Capture, Adobe would essentially have to take away our tint control. They would also have to provide custom WB interface/behavior for each camera they support. I'm guessing even within the Nikon model lineup there are differences from one camera to the next as to exactly what the numbers mean.
What it really boils down to is that ACR is a camera-agnostic RAW convertor. If you're looking for camera-specific approach to converting, then you should use the manufacturer's convertor. When I see people wishing that ACR produced results identical to NC I can't help but think they're completely missing the point of what ACR is all about.
