Canon EOS R: White Balance and Tint in Adobe Camera Raw using Datacolor SpyderCHECKER

See my Canon mirrorless wishlist and Nikon mirrorless wishlist and Sony mirrorless wishlist.

Canon EOS R

An about $127 DataColor SpyderCHECKER was used for this evaluation. I use the clamshell version so I can safely carry it without damaging it. I do not use the calibration software as I have not been satisfied with the results versus the stock Adobe profiles.
