AuthorSubject: CS/ACR & Nikon Nef   [Go to Bottom of Page]

Imaging Revue:

When I got the ACR plug-in v1 I found the results when processing Nikon D1x Nef's to be very magenta in skin tones. I found this on three D1x's and know of many others who found similar output.

Now with the new CS/ACR I get the same results but with CS/ACR's added calibration controls (along with improved workflow methods) I'm hoping it will be a viable alternative to Nikon Capture. ACR's shadow detail, overall detail and smoothness are far better than Nikon Capture.

In looking at an image, a headshot that has a digital grey card in it, I am able to click balance off the card then neutralize the magenta skin tone via ACR's Advanced Calibrate Tab. In so doing I came up with the following settings: Red Hue +15, Red Saturation -3, Green Hue -20 (all other settings are 0).

What I'm wondering is.... Is the a more methodical way to calibrate ACR to a particular camera other than eyeballing it after having done a click balance of a MacBeth Color Checker (2nd whitest patch) or a digital grey card? Once one is able to calibrate CS/ACR to a particular camera default should that setting be consistent across all color temp's?

As I mentioned above I found the settings of Red Hue +15, Red Saturation -3, Green Hue -20 (all other settings are 0) to work in one instance. Have others personalized the calibrate tab when calibrating a D1x Nef and what settings have you found?

Thanks,
