eNo wrote: whether you can make adjustments to make colors match. The only camera I could never master in this respect was the D7000, and that was only under mixed, tough lighting conditions. Yes, skin tones were a bit of a challenge. For my work, the D700 and D600 are virtually identical with regards to skin tone rendition as I showed here.

Yes and no. The D300's easy to match, have to tweak some on the D600. And the D70 never could. Even worse in LR. If I get the skin tone close, the back ground will be different. The D70 used different set of pictures controls, makes it tough to match.

Incidentally, unless you profile your cameras, don't just expect to take shots of swatches and expect them to match. Did you at least sample the gray swatch to match the WB in post? At any rate, look into DNG Profile editor and dual illuminant camera profiles (Google it).

You think I pay $100 bucks for a card and not make custom profiles. I use DNG profile editor, not to thrilled about the Xrite profile editor. Making profiles get me in the ball park on my D300's and my D600. Some tweaking and I can get them real close. But even using the Adobe editor, my D70 is still a foul ball. As for the WB question, yes. I explain that in my post.
