Overcast day?
In reply to Kevin P Kitching, Jan 26, 2013

Most of my profiles I make are duel illuminate profiles. One image shot under incandescent light and one in bright day light. Then I use adobe profile editor to make my profiles. I even made a profile using just my studio lights and there was still a slight difference between my D300's and my D600. Where the D70 had the biggest difference. But I was using adobe profile editor. I have tried using the X-Rite Lightroom plugin but I did not like the end results, the image had to much contrast and I didn't like how the profile made the skin tone look. So I didn't spend to much time in LR trying to find ways of making it look good. Maybe I will give it another shot if the profile will give me a more even results between cameras.

Firstly, I shoot the Colorchecker passport with each body (with same lens) in the same lighting (I choose overcast weather - outdoors) and within a few minutes. I then create profiles from each camera using the X-Rite Lightroom plugin.

After importing images from each camera I apply the appropriate profile and guess what? The colours match!

I use more than Nikon, so I have to ensure consistancy across bodies and the above works for me. Also have a totally colour balanced (profiled) workflow too.

Hope this helps.
