Nikon Z7: White Balance and Tint in Adobe Camera Raw using Datacolor SpyderCHECKER (Mountain Morning Shade)

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

Nikon Z7

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

...

I evaluated white balance and tint for the Nikon Z7 using 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.

The Nikon Z7 raw files have an unusually strong magenta tint compared to other cameras I’ve used as of late 2018. The settings on the following page might save you some grief:

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.
