Hasselblad X1D II 50C: White Balance and Tint in Adobe Camera Raw, Mid-Day High Altitude Sunlight, DataColor SpyderCHECKR

This page assesses the white balance and tint required for raw processing in Adobe Camera Raw in mid-day sunlight with clear blue skies at an elevation of 8400 ft ~= 2560 meters in May. In such conditions, the sun is high overhead and the light is bluish (high color temperature).

This page might save you time and effort in getting ideal color balance.

Setting the ACR color balance to “as shot” (camera was set to Daylight) results in color balance that is WAY off, being 4 points too green and 4 points too blue (in Lab mode) in this case. Clearly it is unwise to use “as shot” or “Daylight” with ACR. This is true of many cameras I have tested. Never assume that “as shot” or any fixed white balance setting is accurate for raw conversion; do your own evaluation as my instructions detail.
