Re: Camera-->sRGB versus Camera-->ProPhoto-->sRGB

Hi gollywop.  As I understand it, all conversions (including from camera space, if not short circuited by vendors' proprietary Raw converters) need to go through Profile Connection Space (XYZ D50) .  Come to think of it, the two color space flows should probably look like this:

1) Camera Space --> PCS --> ProPhotoRGB --> PCS --> sRGB
2) Camera Space --> PCS --> sRGB

If my understanding is incorrect I'd be interested to know.

If you have means for making them available, I could e-mail them to you.  They are dngs (I didn't keep the originals).

Excellent, fire away to my mail and I will share them (google Drive, linked to the Gmail account - you could probably do it too).  If you also had a NEF, that'd be great.
