Exactly. This is why I've stopped using Lr with my Sony, as I only really use my Colorchecker for studio shoots, and I'm tired of fighting the colors I get from LR. It's not a WB issue, it's a color issue. I can spend time playing with RGB curves and camera profiles trying to get the colors where they should be in my landscape shots, or I can just open the images in C1 and be done. :)

I've spent the last 10 months or so trying to figure out Sony colors when using LR. I was VERY frustrated at first. On the whole I think I'm satisfied these days but definitely do a fair amount of slider tweaking. I downloaded C1 at one point but didn't have the patience to slog through the learning process. I think I'll give it another go this winter when I've got more time on my hands.

Vinz, I use black foam core board like these from Michaels for my background when shooting smaller objects. I also have gray. The back side of these are white.

Thanks Gene. I will try that. I also need a black foam core anyway for flagging light on my cinematic portrait.

David, I've never really managed to get my head around this so excuse the daft question. With colourchecker passport, once you set up a colour profile for your body is that it? I.e colours will then always be correct? Or do you have to repeat the process each time you shoot?

As Scatterbrained said, you're technically supposed to create a new prodile in varying lighting conditions, but I typically just create one for natural light (once) and go with that.

I've tried creating profiles in differrent light conditions, but haven't seen nearly as much of an impressive difference in that as I have seen in having a profile vs having not having a profile. But, that could be because I'm a 90% natural light photographer (10% city lights). And city lights are an absolute pain to work with because we seem to be in an ongoing transition from the old sodium vapor to LED. So for city lights shooting I just worry about getting my WB right.

I've tried creating profiles in differrent light conditions, but haven't seen nearly as much difference in that as I have from having zero profile vs having a do-it-once profile. But, that could be because I'm a 90% natural light photographer (10% city lights).

So, if I borrow my buddy's color checker, and say I shoot it for most common places I shoot with, I'm probably good to go and can return the item?

There's only a handful of places that I shoot a lot, like my home, my mom's, ect. Sometimes I have to deal with mixed lighting, and that by far is the biggest hassle, but I'm sort of ok with figuring it out on my own. I'm also open to learning new stuff.

It could be worth a try. Personally I'm not so concerned with perfect accuracy as I am with getting a good general color interpretation (how blues, reds, magentas, greens, purples, etc. are depicted).

When I'm using C1, I don't bother with the passport (maybe I should try it ;)). In contrast to LR, the built-in Sony profile in C1 seems to render good looking color pleasing to my eye. But, in LR I just don't like the colors from the generic profiles as compared to a custom profile via the colorchecker passport: some hues look completely different. My first comment on this subject was contingent on "if you use Lightroom."

Now, if someone is doing a multi-camera project with Sony and Canon or Nikon cameras, and the color from each camera needs to be consistent, then that's when it's especially critical to create a project-specific colorchecker passport profile for each camera.

Having some struggles selling my Batis 85mm...I bet it would be a lot easier sell if Sony hadn't released their excellent and well-priced FE 85mm 1.8!

I tried the B85 a while back. Wasn't blown away (for the price) and coming in at 127mm on my APS-c I decided it wouldn't get used regularly. I sold it....thankfully with only a loss equivalent to a rental fee. The FE85 came out like a month later! ;-)a

the FE 85 makes it seriously hard to use any other 85

Very good IQ and nicely sized lens... oh yeah, the cost :-)
