    Converting NEFs to DNGs - color balance problems

    PhotogJill

      Hi

       

      I am wanting to use DNGs with Xrite's Color Checker Passport which requires a DNG to create a camera profile.  I downloaded Adobe's DNG converter, to convert the NEF  to a DNG, and it does the job, but when you compare the NEF and DNG, the DNG looks totally different to the NEF, and it is completely blown out in terms of exposure and the color balance is awful!

       

      I am trying to create a camera profile for my studio where I use strobes, but the DNG is such poor quality compared to the NEF, that I am sure I am doing something wrong!

                                                       

      Can anyone give me any help with this?

       

      Thank you!
