I have a Panasonic GM-5 (micro four thirds) using an Olympus 9mm f8.0 fisheye. The lens is dumb (doesn't have electrical contacts) so the camera doesn't know what lens is attached and Lightroom can't apply an automatic correction to the lens for distortion and CA. I downloaded the Adobe Lens Profile Creator and successfully created a ***.lcp file for my lens. It is installed in the standard file subdirectory (I think):
Users/[username]/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0 (Using a PC). I'm using RAW files, but lightroom doesn't show the correction profile as being available for my lens. I downloaded a custom ***.lcp from Adobe and it went into a subdirectory under 1.0 titled "Downloaded", so I put a copy of my profile in there as well. I can see the downloaded profile. Still no luck with mine from Adobe Lens Profile Creator. I know most micro 4/3rds lens profiles are automatically applied. Does that mean Lightroom will not recognize my custom profiles? I can apply a Canon or Nikon standard profile to my photos, so it doesn't look like lens profiles are disabled for micro 4/3rds images per se. Thanks in advance for any assistance. R. Ikenberry
Did you create the profile for RAW and not for jpg - these are different?
Look for this line in the profile (multiple entries): stCamera:CameraRawProfile
I think you are absolutely correct. My native RAW files weren't recognized, but the JPEGs were, so I used them. Consequently I made a JPEG calibration profile. Converting my RAW images to DNG via Photoshop and will try again. Thanks!
Successfully created the RAW profile. That was the problem, using JPEG images for calibration generated a JPEG only profile. Thanks so much for the guidance.
