Camera Tools

DCamProf – digital camera profiling tool

DCamProf is a command line tool for making camera profiles, and performing tasks related to camera profiles and profiling.

DCamProf has no measurement functionality, but you can use the free and open-source Argyll CMS to get a .ti3 file with measurement data which DCamProf can read.

This is free and open source software.

Features include:

  • Generate camera profiles from test target measurements or camera spectral sensitivity functions (SSFs).
  • Import (and export) measurement data from Argyll.
  • Detailed control of matrix and LUT optimizers to hand-tune the trade-off between accuracy and smoothness.
  • Test profile color matching performance, with free choice of illuminant.
    Save reports and data files for plotting.
  • Simulate reflective spectra all the way to the locus.
  • Built-in spectral database with Munsell, Macbeth CC24, spectra from nature and common illuminants.
  • Import spectral data to be used in targets or as illuminants.
  • Analyze camera color separation performance under different illuminants using SSFs.
  • Native camera profile format, can be converted to DNG profiles (DCP) and ICC profiles.
  • Support for ICC raw converters that apply pre-processing curves, such as Capture One.
  • Apply a subjective film curve while keeping neutral realistic colors.
  • Optionally design and embed a subjective look in your profile.
  • Decode and hand-edit ICC/DCP profiles, and re-encode them again.
  • Generate own test charts.
  • Correct uneven lighting in test chart photos (flatfield correction).
