Thanks for the nice test Vieri.

Seems you made everybody happy: the ones claiming that there IS an improvement of colors (using WB settings) and the ones who say, the RAWs don't show significant differences (manual WB)

But i'm wondering if the DP3m solves "all" skintone problems of DP1m and DP2m, just because the WB settings are better?
If there are just little differences in the RAW, it should be possible to get the same colors and skintones with the DP1m and DP2m.

I'm still looking forward to a "non-scientific" real world outdoor portrait with all three cameras, taken at the same time.

Hello Maceo,

well, the reason why everyone is happy is that everyone was basing their claims on different assumptions to prove different conclusions... which everyone could do, while at the same time conflicting with everyone starting from different assumptions I guess this is why a good ol' controlled test helps.

Thing is, you can certainly - with different amounts of tweaking - bring two DP files to look the same. The thing is, SPP is not the friendliest piece of software to do so, and some of these tweaking need then to be done in PS or similar, where they involve playing with single colour channel hue/saturations, which in turn is not your average user would do. SPP custom WB brings things close enough, except for reds / pinks: this unfortunately IMHO would still make a portrait look different if shot with the DP3M...

Best,

Vieri
