Thanks Mike.  The Adobe tutorials talk about applying the profile to DNG files (naturally), but it seems like the profile could be applied to a non-DNG raw file.

Yes, ColorChecker Passport profiles can be applied to NEFs. However, they are camera specific. You cannot apply a profile created from a D800E to a NEF from a D800.

The process is as follows. Take a RAW shot of the ColorChecker Passport. Convert it to DNG. Open the DNG in either the X-Rite software, or Adobe DNG Profile Editor. Save the profile.

Then the profile can be used for any NEF from that model camera in ACR or Lightroom 4.

Thanks Robin!
