I have earlier used -am, but -aX gives better Delta-E values.
A close fit for a small number of samples generally doesn't mean all that much.
Indeed...unless you've got a *lot* of samples and an impeccable workflow for
generating them, you're almost always better off with a looser fit. Especially
over the part of the gamut that you can sample with reflective charts, cameras
are remarkably linear and well-behaved. Unless you really know what you're
doing anything other than -am -qm is going to give worse results, because
you're making the profile tightly fit the errors in your workflow.
-ax -qh has its place...but I don't think I'd recommend it for anything smaller
than a few hundred spectrally diverse patches. I use it...for
synthetically-generated charts of tens of thousands of patches completely
covering the entire theoretically-possible set of reflective spectra. That's
where -ax -qh really shines.
But if you're making a profile from a commercially-available reflective chart,
-as -qm is your best bet.
