This is not a critique; it's just my curiosity.
Yesterday I was wondering why I don't like Capture One despite all those ravings on the net how it renders perfect skin tones and how natural C1 colors look.
It seems that's not the case with my Nikon camera and also it's not the case with some other cameras.
If I open the same file in my other RAW software there is no problem, but Capture One gives me over saturated reddish and orange tint. It recognises my camera and my lenses and changes color profile for my camera but….
It seems Capture One color profile for certain cameras does not represent those cameras as it should. On the other hand, those Phase One cameras owners seems to have no problems with colors. I wonder why.
I just wonder if there is a better solution with Capture One 11 rather then spending afternoon fiddling with color sliders and I don't know what else and saving custom profiles.
Something like: cange to sRGB (I have) or go to settings and unclick this setting …. etc
I found the same issue with Capture One 11. On the wildlife and landscape images I shoot with my Canon 7D, the default 7D profile emphasizes browns and oranges. On some images this works, but for others such as snowy landscapes it can look "dirty".
I tried changing the ICC profiles to different Canon models and found that using the Canon 7DII version 2 profile and pulling down the saturation slightly gives me a look that I like. I set this as the default profile for my Canon 7D. I also found I could use the sRGB profile if I increased the saturation to around 90. For my Canon SL1 I use the default 100D (SL1) profile.
In fairness, I also do not like the default Lightroom profile, although Lightroom's alternatives are more clear. The default Adobe Standard profile seems to blow out magentas and deep reds. I use the Camera Neutral profile as my default and sometimes switch to Camera Faithful if it gives a more pleasing look.
