Kodachrome200: I find this obsessing over exact color to be a bit odd. I will say i find alot of the adobe standard profiles un appealing they make peoples skin pinkish. But color does not need to be this exact a science. we never worried about this in the film days. You could compare four different film stocks and theyd all have widely different colors . perfection wasnt possible and we didnt seek it. We just wanted pleasing color. I actually like the uncalibrated color of the portrait image better than the calibrated

Very true, many films were color balanced to match their prime market areas. The rendition of skin tones being one of the prime drivers. A nice challenge shoot 4 people against a Paisley Wall Paper - 1 swarthy Italian, 1 pale Anglo that hasn't seen sunlight in months, a young Asian, and an moderately dark African under mixed light sources. Make one standard print. You only have time for one shot.

We were picky about which films we used for each type of shooting and kept a selection on hand because of the wide range of color responses. When shooting a critical project multiple rolls were purchased from the same batch to keep color variation as low as practical. All selected to keep wet work to standard time line as much as possible.

John-G: I still don't see RAW images in file explorer on Win7. I can click and view them in Photo Viewer but thumbnails are not showing up like they do for JPEGs.

Install privileges can get corrupted and have to be reset even in an administrator account. This has happened in 2 out of the 10 desktops and one laptop out 12. Had to activate the hidden administrator account do the net commands twice and the install errors stopped then rest set install with administrator level functions for my user/admin account. No idea why or how the corruption occurred but that on is fixable.
