Creating a colour profile for your camera isn’t easy. It requires a careful light setup and a new profile for every different lighting situation. A scanner profile is easier to create because the scanner lamp always lights the medium evenly. If it doesn’t, you’re dealing with a broken scanner or a very low-quality device. The basis for the calculation of a camera/scanner profile is the comparison of measured data from the profiling target and the RGB values of the patches from the image or scan. X-Rite’s i1Profiler has a scanner module, but not a camera profiling setup. A new app from a respected colour management expert is basICColor input.
