Canon EOS 6D Mark II profile ?

(John) #21

@RawConvert Interesting. Useful site. I compared the 80D with the D7500. Not much difference but I’d guess Canon are saving higher iso for later or decided not worth doing.

The flattening you have posted on the 6DII might have something to do with fake low iso settings. It might be worth looking at noise performance as well if that isn’t included in the graph.

Off topic but also looked at 80D compared with an OMD E-M5 and E-M1. As I own both I know that the E-M5 is better on noise, not much though but I have used it to take test shots at ISO 25,600. I’d say that there was more range than 3 stops in the shot if that is what the vertical axis is. Ok needed noise reduction and not suitable for all shots due to that. On the other hand maybe there was only 3 stop range.

Lucky me. I bought the 80D and not for dynamic range.

Scouts honour: I promise to read the instructions before shooting!
My colorchecker just arrived - and one more question comes to mind:
Should I do AWB - or should I set white balance manually (now that I have the colorchercker_)…

Now just pray for a sunny day in southwest Germany tomorrow… :wink:

We need your RAW shots, so WB is not an issue. :wink:

Now that you mention it… :smile:
(Why didn’t I think before posting?)


Don’t feel bad, it is a very common behaviour. (This very post of mine being an example.)

O.K.: A rainy weekend in my corner of the world - but I had a go at the “Tungsten” - Shots. Biggest problem: Finding lamps with Tungsten - type light bulbs…
Found 2 small ones and did the best I could, hope it is good enough. :smirk:
Maybee you could have a lok at my “Tungsten” - output:

Cameras: Canon EOS 6D Mark II / Canon EOS 60D / Canon EOS 1300D
Lens: Tamron 28-75 / 2.8
All shot in AV with f8 / ISO 100
Bracketing -1 / 0 / +1

I finally got around to have a go at “Daytime” - shots.

Same as my try with Tungsten:
Cameras: Canon EOS 6D Mark II / Canon EOS 60D / Canon EOS 1300D
Lens: Tamron 28-75 / 2.8
All shot in AV with f8 / ISO 100
Bracketing -1 / 0 / +1

Have also been saved to the Dropbox - folder!.

If not OK I would appreciate a hint…

Great, I hope to get it included in RawTherapee 5.3.

(Christian Malchus) #29

Thank you - I owe you one!

@PhotoViking thanks to your color target shots, the DCPs will be in RawTherapee 5.3:

@Morgan_Hardwood Thank YOU; glad I could make a small contribution! :smiley:


@Morgan_Hardwood @PhotoViking Thank you to everyone involved in adding support for the Canon EOS 6D Mark II. Raw images taken with my camera in RawTherapee v 5.3 are looking good. The same raw images had a strong purple cast when converted with dcraw.exe.
Happy to contribute more reference images if needed. I have an x-rite ColorChecker and passport.


@PhotoViking Glad this post was here as well since the Supported Cameras list does not cite the EOS 6D Mark II as supported yet.

Hi @spacelatch

Where did you find a link to that article? I gave up on maintaining that article a long time ago, all references should be deleted.

I just edited it, but I would still like to know how you found it so that I can remove the reference.


I did a Google search when evaluating replacements for dcraw.

My search term was: rawtherapee supported cameras
