SD9 Color Accuracy

Cold and raining outside - hence messing around inside with the new SD9. Shot the Macbeth card, white balanced on patch 22 and got it's lightness about right.

Delta-C and Delta-Hue are deviations from LAB values listed on my Macbeth card leaflet

The Chroma (similar to Saturation) are mostly positive and close enough for Government Work.

The Hues are another matter:

Green is trending a bit toward yellow but not hugely.

Red is trending significantly toward yellow as expected (Brown Reds).

Cyan is trending heavily toward blue as expected ("Foveon Blue").

I care less about color accuracy these days - so no big deal for me.
