'Scuse the partially off-topic post but don't know where else to ask. I'm trying to search the forum for discussions regarding camera calibration profiles in Lightroom, specifically where to download any profiles for Nikon FX cameras, if there are any updates since beta 3, to see if they're out of beta yet. I'm trying to search for all discussions containing messages dealing with camera calibration, in other words, where the words such as "Nikon" appear in the discussion title. No matter what words I enter into the "Search Lightroom Forum" box at the upper right side of the screen I get no results returned. I've tried the words "camera", "profile" ,"Nikon" , "Raw", "ACR", "calibration" alone or in combination and nothing is returned. I've even tried searching for a word I can see perfectly clearly in the message headers on the same screen as the search box and it doesn't find it. What's going on?
The calibration profiles have been out of beta for a considerable while now. Those built by Adobe are automatically installed with LR. They appear in the calibration panel for the appropriate camera with RAW files from that camera. There is at least one Adobe profile (the Adobe standard) for every camera supported. In some case there is more than one profile. Adobe also provide a free tool for building your own profiles, which can be found here.
I was referring to the profiles for the D700 that emulate the manufacturer's in-camera image settings (Standard, Portrait, Landscape, Vivid) released in "Beta V3" versions by Adobe Labs earlier this year. Was looking to see if there were further updates published yet or if the beta is ended and the collection of camera profiles for the D700 bundled in ACR have been replaced by new, updated profiles . But that doesn't deal with the other problem that occasioned this thread... When entering "Nikon" as the search term in the "Search Lightroom Forum" dialog box I get zero hits. I would have expected dozens of references to message threads containing the word "Nikon" in the discussion subject, just like a search on the word "broken" should produce a reference to this thread.
