Leica SL: White Balance in Adobe Camera Raw, Gray Overcast Lighting

Leica SL camera firmware v1.10. OIS disabled.

This study evaluates white balance and tint using Adobe Camera Raw 9.3.1 (520) in Photoshop CC 2015 (version 20151114 r.301, latest as of 2016-01-03).

The choice of camera profile for raw conversion exerts a pronounced influence on color rendition. Indeed, the choice of white balance and tint can be wildly different with the choice of camera profile.

Accordingly, with any new camera it is a good idea to shoot a color checker target(such as the Datacolor SpyderCHECKR) to determine the appropriate white balance and tint settings for raw conversion in typical lighting conditions: sunny, overcast, tungsten, etc—whatever one commonly uses. Once determined, these settings can then be used as baselines for work in which the white balance and tint may vary according to time of day and other factors.
