Hi all, first of all Happy New Year!
I just take a look into colorcharts to profile my DSLR camera, and I found that Colorchecker SG from X-Rite it's one of the most popular.
Reading  around  I discovered that Xrite doesn't provide the reference file for that chart..
In "ref" dir of Argyll I found it but I think it doesn't came from Xrite directly but it's a user contribution right?

I should consider buy that chart or some one else?
Free to give me suggestion :)

I've had great results using Wolf Fausts "C1" IT8 chart:


Another nice thing is that Wolf has made his reference files available under a Creative Commons license:


I can highly recommend his targets. And of course, 25EUR is hardly painful if it somehow does not work out for you.

Ah yes, I know that site. Since I own a Minolta Dimage scanner too I sent a mail some month ago for few question but never got any response.
For that reason  I discard it
