Nikon Z7: White Balance and Tint in Adobe Camera Raw using Datacolor SpyderCHECKER (Mountain Mid-Day Autumn Sun)

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

Lightroom users: since Adobe Camera Raw is a shared code between Photoshop and Lightroom, the figures will apply regardless of which program is used.

Previously, I evaluated white balance and tint for the Nikon Z7 in mountain mid-day clear blue sky sun. However, I had noted a very strong shift in tint when shooting in mountain shade. I had compensated for this buty not had a good metric for reference. Now I do.

This page uses a SpyderCHECKER® color checker card to evaluate the appropriate white balance and tint in the Adobe Camera Raw 11.0.0.61 dialog in Photoshop CC 2019 20.0.0 in mountain morning shade.

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.
