White Balance and Tint in Adobe Camera Raw

I evaluated white balance and tint for the Canon EOS R 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 Canon EOS R has a whacky white balance compared to all other cameras I’ve used as of late 2018. Perhaps Adobe has yet to introduce a custom profile for it as of 16 October 2018.

An about $127 DataColor SpyderCHECKER was used for this evaluation.
