Examples — RAW Processing

This page details how the Canon 5D Mark III (and 5D Mark II) images were processed from RAW into 16-bit TIF for evaluation.

RAW conversion

Adobe Camera RAW (version 6.7 (319) beta in Photoshop CS5 prior to July 2012, then version 7 in CS6).

Color balance

Typically, images are processed with a white balance at 5000°K with Tint=8 to Tint=18 (there tends to be a green cast), with a modification to color temperature in a few cases to suit lighting variations (“season to taste”). Sometimes the 5DM3 seems to produce a strongly green-tinted image, so that a tint including some magenta was used.
