    Does LR 5.5 RAW 8.5 Recognize Panasonic Cameras & Lenses?


      Why doesn't any of the Panasonic lens or cameras show up in the Lens Corrections>Profiles>Enable Profile Corrections window? Under the Lens profile options when I click on the down arrow it shows nothing related to Panasonic. Lightrooms web site says it supports Panasonic. Does anyone know why nothing for Panasonic is listed? Thanks in advance.

          Camera Raw has long had profiles for Panasonic cameras.  If it didn't, I wouldn't have been able to use my four Panasonic cameras' RAW files.  However, Camera Raw does not have any profiles of which I'm aware for Panasonic MFT lenses.  It may be that the Camera Raw profile for the camera produces an image that doesn't require the additional refinement that a lens profile would add.  Have you tried creating your own lens profiles to see if they make a difference?

            If this is a newer Panasonic camera, a micro 4/3 (MFT) camera, then it is likely that the lens profiles are built in and always on, invisibly doing their job, therefore cannot be selected or deselected in a list of profiles. 


            Starting with, I think, ACR 8.4 for Photoshop, there is information about whether a built-in profile is being used or not, but LR, as yet, doesn't have this indication so questions like yours arise all the time.


            If you want to post an example files, using dropbox then someone with PS may be able to tell you if your camera has built-in profiles or not.
