I seriously doubt the Sola 2100 is going to help anyway unless its night time or very deep. Its nowhere near powerful enough shallow and sunny to overcome natural light.


If its wide angle you need to be close - if you're over half a metre away its too far.  And if you are close enough my money is on TTL not firing the strobe enough so switching to manual is the answer.


If macro then TTL should, kind of work.

If its TTL then quite possibly its choosing to use too much ambient light and not enough strobe and the result is a blue/green washed out image lacking in colour.


Try it manual without TTL above.

So how would i go about creating a "40T" calibration style profile for lightroom/ACR?


Ive looked at the DNG editor but that needs a colour chart which obviously isnt applicable to this.


EDIT:- Scrap that, i found it.  Created a 100T profile and its a massive improvement.

Interesting, I've never played with custom profiles before. Need to look how to go about creating one.
FWIW it tried capture 1 and it's fine. The restriction appears to be entirely adobe raw.

Camera colour space is sRGB.


Its an issue ive had going back a few years with various canon compact and DSLRs and all versions of LR/ACR at the time.


Rebuilding the red channel would be a lot of work - its easier to import raw into DPP then export the TIFF into lightroom.  Its an extra step and one id rather not make hence the question.

I can edit that TIFF perfectly.
