I made these color calibration example pictures the other day and I thought they did a good job of illustrating color calibration so I thought I would share them here.

These images show the difference in color response when using a custom DNG profile vs. the Adobe standard profiles in Lightroom/ACR. Half the image has the custom profile, the other half is using the Adobe Standard profile.

Many people here talk about monitor calibration but calibration of your camera sensor can also play a role in your output. The colors depicted in the pictures were much closer to reality when using the custom profile vs. the Adobe standard profile.

BTW this is using my D80 camera- but if the system works you should be getting the same color results no matter what camera you use.
