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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
