I wanted to raise some concerns about the colour rendering of my M10P's DNG files by Capture One.
I am currently using Capture One 12. About to upgrade to 20.
I have seen some comments on here already that the M10 ICC profile is way oversaturated. I have been using the DNG File Neutral setting instead.
Something that has been bugging me is that when looking at photos shot in shadow, Capture One has removed almost all of the colour from the dark areas of the picture. It's pretty much like looking at a black and white photograph. I have found that this is a particularly an issue with any red in the shadow - Capture One pretty much removes it entirely.
I am finding this to be a particular nuisance when trying to lift detail out of the shadows, only to find that there is no colour in the shadows.
Has anyone else encountered this issue and has anyone found a fix that they might be able to help me out with?
Let me starts the ball rolling.

Where are icc stored in C1
For Windows, C1 recognizes all icc files stored in the following folders. Adhere to correct icc naming convention to avoid confusion. For Mac, the icc file is with default file extension .icc. They can be renamed and used interchangeably.
1. C:\Users\JC\AppData\Local\CaptureOne\Color Profiles (hidden folder, for long-term custom icc storage)
2. C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\color (for testing, temporary custom icc storage)
3. C1 system installed folder, Not recommend
Leica T exposure with lens TL-23 and with Filmtype Standard
To minimize highlight clipping, I always set the exposure compensation at -2/3 stop. I wonder if this is the practice with Leica T.
With C1, for minor exposure adjustment, I prefer to use a tone curve. For simplicity, use the above custom icc instead of C1 Generic icc.
Note that tone curve adjustment does not modify the raw exposure. For this custom icc, only the tone curve in C1 Generic icc was changed.
😊 Your suggestions are most welcome.
For the first time, I'm considering getting a Leica, as the Q2 looks very tempting... However, I was worried that the crop modes would not work with Capture One, which is a bit of a deal breaker. So, before purchasing one, I wanted to make sure that this could be fixed and made a script to retrieve the crop factor and apply it in Capture One. 2 goods news:
It's possible! It works with a combination of Exiftool and Applescript (so, unfortunately, it doesn't work with the Windows version), and it integrates into the Capture One menus I release it as open-source, so that others can use it if they face the same issue: https://github.com/bezineb5/c1-crop-from-exif Now, I just have to wait until B&H gets some Q2 in stock... unless I finally go for a Q.
I hope this will help some of you!
