I am trying to calibrate a scanner using Kodak Q60 target.  But I'm not able to 
obtain the LAB values corresponding to the scanner RGB values, as given in the 
'profcheck' file. Please help, what am I doing wrong?Here is the procedure I am 
following: - the correction matrix is generated using: 'colprof.exe -v -am -qu' 
(I expect the matrix value represents XYZ in D50)- the matrix is modified by 
using: Bradford matrix (D50-to-D65) and XYZ-to-sRGB conversion matrix. (to 
apply the correction matrix to scanned RGB values and convert them to sRGB in 
D65)                Bradford matrix =[0.9555766 -0.0230393  0.0631636; 
-0.0282895  1.0099416  0.0210077; 0.0122982 -0.0204830  1.3299098]              
       XYZ-to-sRGB conversion matrix=[ 2.3706743 -0.9000405 
-0.4706338;-0.5138850  1.4253036  0.0885814; 0.0052982 -0.0146949  1.0093968]; 
- the modified matrix is applied to the scanner RGB values to obtain corrected 
sRGB values.
Am I missing something while computing this modified correction matrix?? 
because the LAB values of the patches given by 'profcheck' are slightly 
different  than the corrected sRGB to LAB.
Thanks  in advance.
