In this paper, the performance of chromatic adaptation transforms based on stable color ratios is investigated. It was found that for three different sets of reflectance data, their performance was not statistically different from CMCCAT2000, when applying the chromatic adaptation transforms to Lam's corresponding color data set and using a perceptual error metric of CIE ΔE94. The sensors with the best color ratio stability are much sharper and more de-correlated than the CMCCAT2000 sensors, corresponding better to sensor responses found in other psychovisual studies. The new sensors also closely match those used by the sharp adaptation transform.
