I have used the ColorChecker Passport (CCPP) camera-profiling system for some time. I recently received my D800 and set about creating a dual-illuminant profile for the camera. So, I shot the target in both tungsten and outside (cloudy) light, and converted the properly-exposed NEFs to DNG using Lightroom 4.1. When I tried to create the profile, I ran into a problem. In the CCPP software, I dragged-and-dropped the DNG files into the app. The first file was recognized, but the second file was flagged as a non-valid DNG. So, I reversed the process. It did not matter which file I brought in second; it always said the file was bad. I then tried to create a tungsten profile from the tungsten shot, and an outside (cloudy) profile from the cloudy file. Both were created without problems, which suggests to me that the files were fine. I sent a note to X-Rite about the problem, and I'm awaiting a response. Has anyone else tried to do this? What was your result?
