Colors of DP1M, DP2M & DP3M pretty close
Mar 27, 2013

I used the x.rite colorchecker to set a custom white balance for all three cameras. Then used manual exposure to shoot the chart making the framing approximately similar. -Made a small mistake with DP3M though, Isomehow it switched to a faster shutterspeed, 1/3 of a stop- Shots are taken mere seconds apart, light was natural but pretty stable overcast. In SPP I adjusted the white balance using the second grey from the top left. On all three that meant an adjustment of 2Y+2M. Saved the file as ProphotoRGB 8-bit TIFF. And did the readings in Photoshop using a 11x11 pixel color pricker.

As far as I'm concerned this resulted in pretty similar color responses. I did not find any big deviations. So my conclusions; (when using a custom white balance) the three cameras yield pretty similar color responses.
