Not a problem

LR5 - no Fuji X-E1 Camera/Lens Profile

I use LR5.6, but it was also the problem in previous versions.

In LR LIBRARY module, the CAMERA model (X-E1) and the LENS model (e.g. X18mm2 R) is correctly displayed.

In the LR DEVELOP module;
when you tick CORRECTION PROFILE, there is NO profile found.

In the TAB profile you can than select yourself the BRAND = FUJI
and select the MODEL/PROFILE, but the possible selections are than only: Finepix X100 or the Finepix X100S

OK, let's convert the RAF into DNG thru the latest Adobe DNG Converter 8.6 as the Fuji X-E1 should already be supported by since DNG Converter 7.2!
Well DNG Converter is a bit of a black box, you only know it is converting from native RAW to DNG raw file format.

Loading the DNG into LR5.6, to cut story short: SAME RESULT wrt LIBRARY and DEVELOP module.

Dear gents and ladies of Adobe, in what way can you say you support FUJI X-E1 with its X-lenses ?

Review this https://forums.adobe.com/message/6293...

It tells you how to tell if your camera automatically applies a Lens Profile and thus, doesn't need a profile in Lightroom.

Like with any recent mirrorless camera with an electronic viewfinder, the lens profile for the X-E1 is built-in and always on, so is not in any list to select. The Camera Raw plug-in for Photoshop tells us this:


Here is what the raw image looks like without any lens corrections, as seen in a raw-analysis program. Note the barrel distortion:


As far as Camera Profiles (not Lens Profiles), the X-E1 has 9 in addition to Adobe Standard:


Are you seeing something less than these or why would you say there are no camera profiles for the X-E1?

Hello Steve,

I am referring to LR, not Photoshop and it's ACR.
But nevertheless you hinted me in the right direction.

It's that TINY information that ACR shows and LR doesn't.

And as I was not aware that FUJI RAF contains lens profile in its ExifIFD, which is than used by LR. LR is only hinting for support on camera model. And FUJI itself is also not mentioning this on their paper or internet information.

But for simplicity reasons I would expect that LR automatically tickmarks the LENSprofile in the DEVELOPmodule, just for clarity towards the more ignorant user community.

Photoshop's ACR and LR have the same raw processor so if one does something the other does the same thing--in this case applies a built-in lens profile.

I wouldn't expect a user-interface element like a built-in-profile-indicator to be added until LR 6 when several new things that ACR already has will likely be added, like the Brush edit in Gradients that ACR has but LR doesn't.

ACR gets new things because it's part of the cloud. LR won't get new things until people pay more, which would be the upgrade to LR 6, otherwise what would be different about LR 6 than the last LR 5 version that people should pay for.

And, this automatic built-in lens-profile application has been happening for several years, already, so ACR adding a visual indication is what is new, not the scenario of it occurring. But I agree that the indication should have been added long ago.
