Plain and simple; what I see through my viewfinder, color-wise, is no where close to what I get when post processing, even when using a grey card to nail WB. I use ACR and notice the camera profiles give dramatic shifts in color, generally strong magenta, strong green, or the contrast goes to hell. Skin tones are almost always magenta or green, it drives me nuts! I shoot raw + jpeg, my D700 is set to neutral. The jpegs vs what comes out of ACR is just so dramatically different...The problem is most evident when it comes to skin tones, but also on a lot of landscapes they just seem to lack range/depth of color. Generally the jpeg colors look infinitely "cleaner".
Would setting up my own profiles possibly fix this issue? Would getting an x-rite passport be worth it for this? I've read NX2 generally gets you close to the jpeg a lot faster, is this true?
I hate to be one to point blame at the gear, but I have a strong feeling my problems lay 100% in the camera profiles of ACR.
