The Mavic may already have a lens profile built into the raw DNG format. In Lightroom, you can confirm this by looking for the presence of an Info (i) icon on the lower portion of the lens correction panel. If it is there, clicking on it will inform which aberrations are being automatically corrected.

Thanks for the hint. But there is only the message what I try to activate the correction, that a matching profile can't be found.

Thank you for confirming. Would you be able to upload a sample DNG file from the Mavic Air and provide a download link?

I created a profile myself.
There is obviously not much to correct. Here is the link to it: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ugkO2R7hNoNLYcq4LdUwrhXX337Eiru5/view?usp=sharing

What I don't understand: I can apply it for DNG files but not for JPGs in Lightroom?!? Is it because I created the profile with DNG files?

Hi,

Thank you for sharing the profile you created.

I located some external sample DNGs from the Mavic Air which includes a built-in WarpRectilinear opcode for correcting distortion and a GainMap for vignette correction. Your images should also include the opcodes unless there is a way to disable lens corrections in the camera (I'm not sure).

The screen capture below is of the "info" indicator I mentioned previously. This is from Adobe Camera Raw, but an equivalent version of Lightroom should display the same information on the Lens Correction panel.



External lens profiles such as the one you created work on either raw or JPEG images, but not both. JPEGs are output referred and are usually corrected for lens aberrations in-camera, so they typically do not require a lens correction profile.

That said, if you make a copy of your existing profile and change the value of the following element (all instances of it) from True to False, it will become available to apply on JPEGs.

<stCamera:CameraRawProfile>True</stCamera:CameraRawProfile>

                                               - change to -

<stCamera:CameraRawProfile>False</stCamera:CameraRawProfile>

The results may not be ideal given that the DNG is a scene referred image and that is likely what you used to create the profile. You can also reshoot your calibration targets in JPEG mode to generate a JPEG-specific profile that way.

Hope that helps.

Regards,

- Chris

Thanks for the explanation Chris. 

There is not option to disable it in the camera/drone. 

Now I see, that the embedded profile is used in Photoshop. My Lightroom installation was broken, so that might be the reason why it was not using and showing the integrated profile. 

When I had created the profile myself, I was surprised because there is nearly no change to the 'normal' DNG, which I had never seen before.

Where do I make these setting for Lightroom to apply the profile for JPGs? 

Thanks
Claus

Hi Claus,

The profiles (raw and JPEG versions) can be copied to the same LensProfiles/1.0 location in your user folder where Lightroom, Camera Raw and Photoshop will all read from.

I'm not sure which version of Lightroom you have, but there was a brief period when we first added the "info" indicator to Camera Raw that it had not made it to Lightroom for a version or 2 later. That could be the difference you see.

Regards,

- Chris

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled yongnuo lens profile?.

I have the Yongnuo YN35mm f2 lens, which I am using with a Canon 7D Mk ii. Lightroom (Classic, at least) does not appear to have a profile for this lens. At least when I work on photos taken with this lens, no profile is apparent.

As it is a reasonably popular lens (not terribly well known, but it is known as a very good sub $100 lens), and because I have it, a profile would be very much appreciated.

One question to you Chris: How do I get the profile now into Premiere Pro? I thought there would be a way but I can't find it anymore or was this just for LUTs?
There are a few lens correction but they are not for the Mavic Air and with the 4 sliders I can't get the horizont strait because it looks a little bit like a snake with a valley in the center like this:

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom/Camera Raw: Lens Profiles only work on raw/DNG files.

Lens profiles are only available on RAW files. However there is a list of (useless) "default" profiles that is available to any image format. 

In the most recent update to 7.3.1 the limiting of the Lens Distortion tool has made it impossible to correct lens distortion for anyone not using RAW image formats. As an editor this has made it impossible for me to correct image distortion from some of my clients. 

Where I used to be able to add a lens profile to an image then make large adjustments with the distortion slider, then I could alley them to multiple images vis the Sync option. I can now only make small adjustments that are not significant enough to make up for the lack of lens profiles in the "default" options available to non-RAW images.  To correct these distortions I have to do each individual file in Photoshop. This has INCREASED not decreased production time dramatically. 

Either add ALL profiles to the availability of all image formats or restore the functionality to the distortion slider. In reality both should happen, the profiles should be available across all formats AND the distortion slider should work as it did in previous versions.

Please fix this yesterday.

Nothing has changed with lens profiles in LR 7.3.1 on my Windows 7 system. In the past lens profiles for non raw image files (JPEG) were only provided for "select" lenses. The vast majority of lenses only have a lens profile that is usable with raw files. I have no idea what you mean by, "there is a list of (useless) "default" profiles that is available to any image format.   Where are you seeing these lens profiles?

In the most recent update to 7.3.1 the limiting of the Lens Distortion tool has made it impossible to correct lens distortion for anyone not using RAW image formats.
If you're talking about the 'Distortion' slider in the Lens Corrections> Manual panel it works the same as in the past in LR 7.3.1 on my Windows 7 system.

Something is wrong with your LR 7.3.1 installation. Please try opening the Creative Cloud app, uninstall LR, restart your system, and reinstall LR 7.3.1.

I spent 3 hours on the phone with support and they compared it to their version on a Mac and agree that it is different in the level of effect. They opened an old version and compared it to the 7.3.1 to confirm. Maybe it is a Mac thing but the level of affect is in fact different.

So it appears to be a Mac only issue. I suggest mentioning that to Rikk Flohr at your original post. He is an Adobe employee and others landing there with Mac systems can confirm the issue. If it is a global change in 7.3.1 on OS X that should help anyone on a Mac who is experiencing this issue.

This lens profile has existed for years. Are you using RAW files or .JPGs? The profile exists for RAW files; producing one for JPGs is problematic, because JPG images have already been processed. I've used the profile (and lens) with Canon T1i and 7D Mk ii.

That lens profile has been available for raw images from Canon and Nikon DSLRs since LR 5.5 in June 2014 and the C before the 700 in lens model number you give indicates Canon DSLR.

On Windows, the lens profile files are under the Lightroom program folder.  For example, this is the path to that lens profile on my Windows 10 64-bit computer:

Having lens profiles for FUJI FX lenses such as 18mm F2, 35mm 1.4, 50mm 1.2 would be really nice. Many people find this a problem when using Adobe Lightroom Classic and have to rely on third-party software.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lighroom 6.14 Camera Profile Lens Profile.

I just updated to LR 6.14 on my 64 bit Windows 10 PC. My camera is a Panasonic Lumix FZ 200 which is listed in the Camera Raw list of supported cameras but its lens is not. The thing is this camera has a fixed 24-600 mm zoom lens. You cannot remove it and use another. So quick question, why is the camera supported but not the lens? Or, to put it another way, if the lens is not supported, how is the camera?

Thanks.

Not sure about LR 6.14, but the newer versions of Lightroom and PS's Adobe Camera Raw plug-in show a little message that the lens profile is built in and has been applied, and if you click on that message, you get a bit more detail.  Here is the message in ACR 10.3, but even without a message, the profile is being applied. 

Removable-lens DSLRs tend to have separate profiles you have to enable and select from individually, whereas mirrorless cameras like the Lumix which typically have built-in lenses, or only a few you can switch between, have built-in lens profiles.  The reason for this is the camera, already, is doing the distortion correction for the electronic viewfinder and as such writes the lens correction parameters into the metadata of each raw file for Adobe and others to use.  That's why there is no lens profile supplied in a separate file that you have to enable and select for this particular camera. 

Adobe has been applying the built-in profiles for years, but due to agreements with the first few cameras' manufacturers they weren't allowed to disclose the use of built-in profiles so there was no message in older LR versions--basically because the distortion was so bad in the uncorrected version of the raw data that the vendor didn't want anyone to see it or even know the distortion was there.  Since those early days, Adobe either worked with this camera manufacturers to update their disclosure of lens profiles being used, or perhaps still hides the fact on the first few camera models from various vendors that were produced, but now they are able to disclose the use of built-in lens profiles and have updated later versions of LR to have the little message.  It is possible that LR 6 is still old enough not to have such a message.

That's an older lens so I wouldn't count on Adobe making a profile, but someone else did and made it available via the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader that is no longer available as of 2018, but I already had it installed so used it to download the profile.

Here is the third-party profile that appears to be for that lens that I just put on Dropbox:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/1url3nmi7njo8xe/Canon%20EF20-35mm%20f3.5-4.5%20USM_LensProfileDownloader.l...

If you're on Windows, put the .lcp file, here:

C:\Users\*yourusername*\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0\Downloaded

or using this shortcut:  %APPDATA%\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0\Downloaded

If the Downloaded folder doesn't exist, create it, first.  Restart Lightroom/Photoshop and see if the profile is shown for your raw photos with this lens.  I don't have the lens so I cannot test for myself.

On a Mac the folder should be:

/Users/[your user name]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0

I'm going to put your request in a comment instead of the title so people can more easily see which lens you're asking for a profile for:

"When (from which version onwards) will Adobe Lightroom support a lens profile for the Fujinon Fujifilm FUJINON XF 50-140mm?"
