As a landscape photographer, you understand the importance of having access to linear profiles. The advantage of using linear data from the sensor as a starting point for editing is the added margin for making adjustments without sacrificing image quality. By providing a calibrated linear profile, we offer our customers the best possible starting point for their beloved cameras, free from any corrections or contrast curves. This technology allows for extended editing capabilities, ensuring that your creative vision is realized with the highest quality possible.

Cobalt Colour

Our Method

– 600 samples tested (Xrite SG has 140 samples )

– Two main illuminants d65 and StdA (only on DNG basic )

– Different transformation than the Bradford model used by Adobe for the d50 calculation.

– For DNG basic the internal forward matrix is limited in the Prophoto/ Human Locus in order to avoid posterizations.

– Looktables and ICC (Capture One Basic) are adjusted to be relative to any different contrast curve.

– Transformation model CIECAM02 (better tonal separation)

– Proprietary main colourimetric stadium, to build profiles we use DcamProf.

Sensitivity metamerism index,
a number that says everything.

ADOBE D65 ISO 17321: 65

COBALT D65 ISO 17321: 79

 

The sensitivity metamerism index (SMI) is an essential measure of a camera’s ability to reproduce accurate colours, as defined in ISO standard 17321.

To assess the colour response results of your camera, you can find numerous reviews online using a standard Color Checker of 24 patches (on the left). However, our test uses the impressive HR-1 target with 1131 patches (on the right) and a Sony A7rii camera.

It’s important to note that modern cameras have excellent colour quality, and it’s the colour profiles that make the real difference. So, forget about the old-school phrase “this camera has better colours” and educate yourself about the impact of colour profiles. Trust us; it will revolutionize your photography!

The quality of our basic profiles has been tested to impress

Our current generation of v2.1 base profiles has obtained the Fadgi 4-star rating on the Color SG target.
“FADGI is a collaborative effort started in 2007 by federal agencies to articulate common sustainable practices and guidelines for digitized and born-digital historical, archival and cultural content. 

Our profiles adhere to the highest standard, and our DeltaE significantly surpasses that of standard profiles (as evidenced on the right).
