Re: Color change from D7000 to D7100

There is one very basic question I have to you. Why are you using the Jacket instead of the color checker passport to verify your colors?

It seems to me it is more sound just to see if the squares on the color checker passport have the colors that they should have. This can even be done with computer software by selecting on the squares with color picker software and then checking the resulting values against the RGB color tables.

The jacket is of a somewhat undefined color, and that just makes everything harder.

Furthermore to be sure you have the correct white balance you can spot white balance also on the Color checker passport, the 4th patch from the white one in the bottom row of the ColorChecker classic is 18% gray.
