Maybe someone can help me make sense of this. I'm using LR 5.2 and Photoshop CC.
When I preview my raw files in Windows photo viewer (using the MS Camera Codec Pack), there's a fair amount of image information on the edges that is not making it's way into LR/ACR. I checked and have no import presets being applied and lens correction options are not enabled.
I thought setting the aspect ratio on the G5 at 4:3 captured the largest sensor area and I would be sacrificing the least amount of data. Somehow Windows can view more data on these raw files. I tested a few. In both LR and ACR via Photoshop CC.
I want to get to this data! Anyone know why LR/ACR isn't letting me get to it?
Lightroom is making Lens corrections automatically when processing the raw files. The lens correction data is imbedded in the raw file which Lightroom will read. This is at the request of Panasonic. Micro Four Thirds lenses are constructed to be compact and light which means that limitations are then corrected using software processing. The thread below will provide additional info.
