PS CS6 does not recognize my EOS Mark III

Jul 3, 2012 2:43 AM

Tags: #lightroom #lens_profiles #canon_eos_7d #photoshop_cs6 #eos_5d_mark_iii

It is no problem to use the lens correction in PS CS6 with my EOS 7D and the 24-105 IS L lens. Using my new EOS Mark III with the same lens, Photoshop does not recognize the lens. And in the dropdown menu, where you can normally choose the camera type, Canon is no available (Nikon, Pentax, Sony... are available.). Why is that so? Lightroom 4 has no problem with that issue.

    Since there are several different features in Photoshop that are lens-specific, can you describe what you're trying to do in a hair more detail?  Are you seeing this issue in Camera Raw or the Lens Correction filter, for example?

    EOS MK3?  Do you mean 5D MK3 ?  Do you have the ACR 7.1 update?

    HEllo!

    And is it recognized correctly in Camera Raw? Is it a RAW file or a JPEG. Those details might be useful to know.

    I know fairly little about how Adobe accumulates lens profile data, but I have always thought that it's at least in part user-submitted (though I'll be darned if I've ever run across a description of how to do it). 

     

    Perhaps it is as simple as no one having submitted profile information using a full frame camera for that lens.

     

    You can see it for your 7D because someone may have submitted information describing the characteristics of the 24-105 zoom for a 1.6x crop camera.  Adobe would not be able to apply that to a full frame camera, because they simply would not have measurements of what the lens is doing to the image out past the edges of the smaller sensor, and so they leave it off the list.

     

    All this is just speculation.  I'll be curious to see if I'm near the mark.

    Hi Noel,

     

    I know fairly little about how Adobe accumulates lens profile data, but I have always thought that it's at least in part user-submitted (though I'll be darned if I've ever run across a description of how to do it). 

     

    You should hopefully find informaion here:

    And can ask questions here:

    I don't keep up with this utility so I can't say if it's very active. The last update reads 4/2011.

     

    regards,

    steve

    Thank you kindly, Steve!  Something new to learn today!

    If I'm not mistaken, Lightroom profiles are pushed by updates, why the lens correction filter needs to search for new profiles. did you try to use the lens profile downloader, vistble on the page that Steve linked to?

     

    What about Camera Raw, does it also have the profiles?

    I'm having this same problem, and was just told by Adobe support that they only recently became aware of this issue and it is being worked on by "engineering".

     

    Which begs the question, why does it take almost a year for them to be made aware of a problem that was posted in their support forum?
