i think you can use the colorchecker passport with C1, it's even easier, you just need to hit A for auto tone and C1 will work it out for you automatically. no need to create a new color profile and restart like lightroom. I have to double check where i found this info.

Vinz, I've been reading this too but if no profile gets created then how do you cover a variety of scenarios, lighting etc without having to use the CC for each type of scene each time you need that setting?

i think the colorchecker passport is designed to be used each session or everytime the light changes. because even if let's say you're using it for all your sunset landscape, the intensity or brightness of each scene affects the color too, not just the kind of light. please correct me if i'm wrong or if i understood you wrongly. i have poor comprehension. :p

that's what I thought too. A buddy of mine has one, and I've seen him use it in a church. Only had to do it once, but it was funny watching him do it. Not sure it would even work well in the mixed lighting atmosphere.

I think it's one of its purpose, to be able correct the white balance even in mixed lighting. Also useful in fashion, product shooting or beauty shots that needs accurate color.

For now I'm just using an expodisc. I suppose the colorchecker passport is more accurate.

Yeah I'd hate to become that jaded about photography. Even now there are times when I just don't feel like shooting b/c I had a busy weekend...and sometimes I miss things worth documenting.

I've become that way about post processing, but thankfully not taking pictures in general. I find that I'll have cards full of images for weeks on end before I bother with editing them... sometimes I even forget I have cards with shots on them :eek:

I hoped I would use the JPEG's more with my switch to Fuji for that reason, but even though they produce awesome JPEGs, I can't help but feel the desire to tweak them a bit in post still so I usually don't bother with posting the JPEGs.

In n Out burgers, LAX. Was scoping this place out last time I was out, it's a nice place to shoot planes. Only issue with shooting planes is the heat the plane produces causes major atmospheric issues.

EDIT: btw, it's a fantastic spot, all sorts of planes land. I think I'll visit again and try to see if I can catch the airbus, should be a significant sized plane. During sunset, the light on the plane is just beautiful at the right angles, but I didnt get a chance to figure composition with the kids around.

Hehe I wish I had an interesting story that involved me pulling people out of a burning car....

But I was basically driving home and stuck in traffic. There was a billowing cloud of smoke way down the road, and this is what I saw when I finally got near it. I happened to have the RX1RII in my glove compartment. Shot this out of my window going 2mph.

Vinz it can be used in that way but probably the most important way is by using the software that comes with the ColorChecker, you can produce WB and Color corrected Camera Profiles for a variety of different lighting situations eg MidDay/Daylight, Night, Studio Lights etc then in LR or PS you either import using one of your saved Presets or just apply a preset in Develop. It is this latter use I wanted to try it for BUT it doesn't play ball with Capture One as the profile is produced as a DNG which both LR & PS are fine with.
