>Are there any profiles available for sale or otherwise that would do this? Are there any big names out there who would do a custom profile?
Not yet. That is just the hope and expectation.
Could it be that they're waiting for the release version? I had expected a flood of profiles...
We have anticipated such a request from users. Hence tutorial #3:
For step 2, you want to open a DNG from your 5D.
For step 3, you want to choose your preferred D700 profile for the "base profile"
You can skip step 4 unless you want to make tweaks.
Make sure to do step 5.
Then restart Camera Raw / Lightroom and enjoy. The new profile should be available from the CR / LR profile popup menu when you select a 5D image.
Many thanks Eric! So will that CONVERT the 5D's colours to that of the D700 profile or just assign them (which might look weird as the base colours might be different?). Am I right in assuming that I don't need any specific files but can just use any to trigger the base profile assigned? It sounds too easy! :)
OK, tried it out, looking good, subtle but to my eye far more natural skin tones. Just hope I don't get any problems cropping up along the way!
Beni, it was designed to be easy. (The hard work is done under-the-hood by the DNG Profile Editor to grab the appropriate parts of the color profile from the 5D and D700 and slap 'em together.)
The distinction between converting/assigning doesn't apply in this case. (I know you're thinking about convert vs. assign in Photoshop.)
Basically what you're doing here is building a profile that will interpret 5D colors more similarly to how that D700 color profile behaves. It won't be perfect but the overall color style should be pretty close.
I have downloaded the camera profiles package and the DNG profile editor, but I cannot find where the non-canon profiles are located. Can you help?
You need to (1) install the profiles with their installer and (2) be opening a Nikon or Canon file that is supported. At this time, no other camera makers are supported.
You can only open profiles that are appropriate for your camera. You use those as a starting point for creating your own custom profiles. In other words, if you have a DNG file from a Canon camera, you aren't going to be able to see a listing of the Nikon or Olympus profiles.
Not true Jim, not at all. For a start if you follow Eric's instructions on the previous page you will find out that you are wrong, secondly the profiles are pretty easy to find, just do a search on your computer for *.dcp files, on my PC computer they are under C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles\
Another neat trick is that if you open up a DNG file from the camera whose profile you want, then your camera's profile, the drop down menu shows profile from both cameras, makes it easier.
Looks like I had better become a little more familiar with the profile editor. I apologize for the misinformation. I haven't used the profile editor very much. I have just been using the profiles Adobe has provided for my camera.
However, in defense of my original answer, IF you only have a DNG file from one camera then you will only be able to see the profiles for that camera. And that is the context of my thinking when I answered the question.
