I have the latest Lightroom CC 2105.6.1 with Camera Raw 9.6. It only support DSC-RX10M2 and below for profile correction. When is Lightroom going to support DSC-RX10M3

Hi Jeff,

The DSC-RX10M3 has a built-in lens corrections profile and was first supported in Camera Raw 9.5.1, so you should already have support in LR CC 2015.6. Note that the built-in profile is called out at the bottom of the Lens Corrections panel as in the screen capture below. This shot is from the ACR UI, but the same should be true in LR.



Regards,

This feature need to be enhanced.
I have 5D4 and RX10M3 both, each time I import photos, I have to check the source is from 5D4 or RX10M3. If 5D4, let IMPORT apply profile automatically,  If RX10M3 turn the options off. It is very boring and trouble.

Nooooo, just update the per-camera defaults. https://www.lightroomqueen.com/articl...

Hi Victoria - I did as your article suggested, but then I realized that I often use a non-Sony lens, a Tamrom 150-600mm lens, with adapter,, for my wildlife photographs. So if I set the defaults for the Sony Cameras to be 'no profile' applied because they have built in profiles, I will not get the lens corrections for the Tamron, correct? I use that lens on both my A7rii and the A6300. Thanks in advance for your reply!

There's two separate sets of defaults involved Brenda.

Lens defaults - set in the pop-up in the Lens Corrections panel - Auto, Default and Custom. If you set the right lens profile for the selected camera/lens combination, then select Save new lens profile default from that pop-up, it changes to Default. It'll only apply the selected lens profile to that camera/lens combination, so if you use another lens on that camera, it'll still select the right profile for the other lenses. 

Then, there's the general defaults mentioned in my article. As long as the lens pop-up is set to Default when you set those general defaults, it'll still use the right lens profile for each lens. It only comes unstuck (setting a specific profile regardless of the lens) if that pop-up is set to Custom.

Help please.  I am running LR6.8 with ACR 9.8 on a Win10 machine.  I recently received a Sony DCS-RX10M3 but my Lens Correction panel states that a lens profile could not be found.  LR lists the camera correctly in the metadata.

Here's what I see.  What do I need to do to enable lens corrections?


Thank you,

Steve

Hi. This camera has built-in lens corrections. Uncheck "Enable Profile Corrections" and see the post above for additional details.

Chris: Thank you for the response.  I did uncheck "Enable Profile Corrections" and did not get the information message.  I also looked for messages in the Lens Correction panel on several photos prior to checking the box. No messages were found.  The message area in the panel is blank.

Since I do not get the info message regarding built-in profiles, how can I verify these profiles are used.  I have a couple of photos where there appears to be some distortion.

Thank you,

Steve

Chris:   When building a panorama in LR I get a caution that LR could not find/match the lens profile for photos taken with this camera.  Suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi Steve,

I have some ideas about the root cause.

First, confirm you are shooting raw (.ARW) and not JPEG as any lens corrections would already be baked into the JPEGs.

If you are using raw, do you happen to have the smart previews optimization enabled in the Develop module (see the preferences panel below)?



There is a known issue in Lightroom where it will not indicate that the built-in lens corrections are present in a smart preview. This would likely cause the panorama lens profile warning as well. If you have this option checked, try unchecking it and restarting Lightroom to confirm whether the built-in profile message is present and/or the warning goes away when generating a panorama.

I'm not sure if this bug was resolved in 6.8 or is scheduled for a future release. I'll need to confirm with the Lightroom team.

Regards,

- Chris

Chris: you are correct.  My mistake.  Somehow I managed to import the JPGs only, and look at the file extension when working with the photos.  Everything works as expected for the raw files. I get the info message in the Lens Profile panel and no warning when creating a panorama.   Again, my mistake - the error was between the ears.

Thank you!

Steve
