Hi Everyone,

Bought the WhiBal pocket size card - works OK for in-camera custom WB (balance is better then without it).
I do not use it in PP (it is a smallest one, but I am able to "fill the frame" with it - not to worry about it here).
The WhiBal claims it is at L ~ 75, a ~ 0, b ~ 0 in CIELAB color space: http://www.whibalhost.com/_Tutorials/WhiBal/06/index.html

What I do not understand is where this particular "neutral grey" CIELAB point lands in any of the in-camera RGB color profiles (sRGB and Adobe RGB). Is it 128R, 128G, 128B in both sRGB and AdobeRGB? Does anybody know for sure?

If no definitive answer, - I will then talk to WhiBal and share the response.

Thanks,
Dmitry
