Canon colors on Foveon cameras!
After many weeks I found the time to develop my project to finally have my beloved colors of a calibrated Canon 5ds on my Merrill camera!
I already published a colorimetric version of a profile for MERRILL to apply on LR, C1 or via CUBE file; on this case, my purpose was to have the not perfect but effective color feeling I always love to have with my Canon cameras.
Following you can see many Merrill samples of the same image without (on left) and with (on right) my new profile applied on a standard Prophoto TIFF developed on Sigma Photo Pro with the neutral color setting and Daylight white balance.
UPDATE: new Merrill profiles are on Version 1.8!
As you can see, the skin tones now are more natural, the green cast is gone and the reds, and the blues are finally back!
There is a comparison between the same reference picture from Imaging Resource; on top the dp1 Merrill tiff with my LUT, on the bottom the 5ds raw with calibrated profile.
Following the develop of my profile LUT for Merrill I developed a profile for DP QUATTRO cameras series.
The first image here in the bottom is a comparison between a dp2 QUATTRO tiff and a Canon 5ds Raw with a calibrated color profile.
The following images are some samples of the result!
If you enjoy this work, I am offering each package (MERRIL or DP QUATTRO) of profiles for 12,00 £.

Each package contains:
the color profile for MERRILL/dp QUATTRO cameras in two different formats to be used in:

So, for the MERRILL CAMERAS:

For QUATTRO CAMERAS:
develop your favorite pictures with NEUTRAL color mode on SPP, WB set on AUTO, export it in Prophoto 16bit TIFF and open this with CaptureOne or perhaps with Photoshop/Camera-raw to apply the right profile and finally enjoy the REAL colors of your pictures!
