I collected a few coloured items (one with both florescence and
reflector) together with the QPcard201 and took a few pictures. I have
tried your profile, with white balance against a grey patch on the
target, my own customized profile following the how-to, the camera
default JPEG output and the "standard" profile that came with the
camera. I've put all four resulting images plus the original raw file
on my website.


The camera default output is just crap, but that's probably because I
had no way to perform white balancing - it is set to automatic WB. The
"standard" profile is off in many places and that was the original
reason for me to put together the how-to. Hard for you to know how the
colours are supposed to look, but the two top cups are supposed to be
red and orange. I think that your profile and my custom one are so
close that it requires a calibrated output device to see which is most
true and I don't have that at the moment. They are not the same,
