"Color science" is a term that gets thrown around quite a bit as a catch-all for some things that are actually under the umbrella of science and many that aren't at all. This excellent video unpacks all the baggage that comes along with the term "color science."
Coming to you from Gerard Undone, this awesome video talks about "color science," what it truly is, and what it means (and should mean) to photographers. A lot of photographers will eyeball photographs taken by different cameras from various brands and declare the colors from one to be more "accurate" or "better" than the other, when what they really mean is "I have a subjective preference for the colors from this camera." While there's nothing wrong with having subjective preferences (photography is an art, after all), it does annoy me when people pan a brand's color science as "bad" or "inaccurate" when they've not actually tested the accuracy and are turning their opinions into declarative sentences feigning objectivity. Whether you're just starting out or looking to buy a new camera, it's important to understand this distinction along with the fact that you have quite a bit of control in post over the colors.
