How it works

Our Cobalt profiles are every serious photographer’s next step to enjoy the best workflow and the most accurate color reproduction.

Our color reproduction is way better compared to the standard profile; please see below the impressive difference between the two Pointer Gamuts and the vector size on a SG Color Checker target.

Our Method

-600 samples tested (Xryte SG has 140 samples )
-two main illuminants d65 and StdA (DNG standard)
-different transformation than the Bradford model used by Adobe for the d50 calculation.
-for DNG the internal forward matrix is limited in the Prophoto/ Human Locus in order to avoid posterizations.
-Looktables and ICC (C1) are adjusted to be relative to any different contrast curve.
-CIECAM02 is the transformation model (better tonal separation)
-main colorimetric stadium is proprietary, to build profiles we use DcamProf.

The modular base on our profile set is artifacts-free and the ideal starting point for any effective workflow.

If you are either a landscape photographer or a wedding professional, with our profiles you’ll feel confident no matter how harsh or extreme your working light conditions are.
Your colors will be safe and your skin tones accurate.

The modular base of Cobalt gives the same color reproduction to your cameras, whichever brand you are using.

Start your wedding day, your reportage, or your commercial shooting with your favorite mix of camera brands, trusting your result from the very beginning of your work.

Now you can use your favorite camera brand and even combine different camera brands for your work if you wish; our profiles will give you the same color reproduction. This means no more trouble combining images coming from different camera brands.

    "La cosa che apprezzo di più è la totale assenza di artefatti anche dopo elaborazioni spinte. I colori sono belli e naturali. Consiglio caldamente di inserirli nel proprio workflow!"
