I've been using Cobalt profiles since their early days when it was just a film emulation preset. Along the years, this project has matured and evolved tremendously. Recently, after reading @GabrielPhoto's thread about it, I decided to give their new color profiles and film emulations a try. I was hooked!

The color profiles are camera specific which seems increase accuracy. Once you install a profile designed for your camera (Lightroom or CaptureOne), all Cobalt film and digital emulations will work with it.

Since I want this project to succeed and continue evolving, I've purchase the Fuji digital + film emulations, Leica CCD Monochrome and Kodachrome emulations for my Sony A7R IV and Leica M10-P cameras. I'm very happy with the results.

I asked the owner (super nice guy) for a promotion code for FM members and we are getting 15% off until the end of July.

Promotion expired

Here are a few samples. If you get some emulations, feel free to post on this thread!

I also very fondly read Gabriel's thread. I might need to give these a look myself!
Thank you very much for getting us that promo code to use.

Thanks to Gabriel's excellent review/examples I already bought some of the profiles recently.
Might try some more with the code, thanks.

Oh crap, literally just bought two of them last day..

Can confirm that they are excellent though, decided to go for them for my A9 instead of (re)buying another Canon 1DsIII

Thank you Fred for your kind support!

We hope to give help to pro photographers and some kind of inspiration for the editing process to amateurs and film lovers like me as well.
At this right moment, we are uploading on the website our new CCD FEVER pack, something made for "vintage" digital camera lovers in order to enjoy on new bodies the color signatures from Leica M9, S5 Pro, P645d...
And to be honest I am the first who enjoy that!

I've been waiting for that Leica M9 emulation for a long time! Either that or buy a M9.

And to be honest I am the first who enjoy that!

That's why they are so good. You take pride developing them.

I've been searching high and low for profiles that will emulate Leica Monochrome for my M10 as well as the Fuji profiles for my M10 & Sony. This looks like a great solution!

Does one need to buy a set for every camera?

Hi, yes.

Is the cost to enjoy a fixed calibrated color reproduction at the same level for every camera.
Because that you can shot a wedding using many brands and working in post with a same color signature.

Besides that, it's also important the expanded level of reproduction of our profiles. as already explained there

And we did the Monochrome emulation, not as others, but a scientific one!
as described on our website:

"We achieved a less than 0.8 DeltaE of our target over the entire spectrum; the quality of this emulation is unparalleled and if youíre looking for that black and white signature, here it is!"

Thank you for organising the coupon, Fred. After seeing your images in @GabrielPhotoís thread, I ordered the Sony A7R IV pack and Monochrom CCD emulation. Iíve just used the coupon to add the Leica M10-P and Monochrom CMOS ones. If only the Fujifilm emulation included Superia Venus 800

As you can see on the website, you have to contact us for "tailored requests".
C1 is made in a different way so for any combination camera-emulation we have to follow a custom process.

Feel free to contact us for personalized requests!

So dumb question, are the emulation packs additional profiles or presets that you can apply to the base profile you got for your camera?
