To live with this, I developed my own DNG profiles based on PSKiss cross camera profiles over the last few years.

Surely you just supported what the others are saying??? Not being a smartxx but...

The PSKiss cross camera profiles are far from perfect. I had to work on them to get them to work to my taste. These profiles do not aim to provide accurate color, but rather, colors which emulate other brands. What the others are suggesting is to use a color chart. That does not solve the problem, it just makes everything more clinical.

Understood, the thing is, the calibration is just step one. Step 2 is adjusting the color profiles so that output is 'to your taste' where necessary.

As you have done.

Cannot do 2 easily until 1 is done, no?

The Achilles heel of calibration is that users of color chart systems such as Xrite CC & QPcard (I have both) need to assure they either calibrate for every lighting type, or must be very sure about the accuracy of the so-called dual illuminant profiles. These systems are only very good in controlled environment, with QPcard being somewhat better than CC for mix lighting (yes, I think QPcard is milder & better than CC). These work fine for studio and landscapes, but will be a disaster for example, shooting in an event hall with tungsten ambient lights, daylight floud lights & our speed lights being gelled to the acceptable average of 3200K.
