ACR: Camera specific profiles for Olympus OM-D E-M1

  • Under Consideration
  • (Edited)
Please let us have camera specific profiles for the Olympus OM-D E-M1's most important color modes (Natural, Vivid, Muted, Portrait) besides the Adobe Standard profile!

This was such a huge improvement when it was introduced for Nikon and Canon cameras long ago!

Note for repliers:
Please let's refrain from recommendations for "making your own profiles". This request is not about getting "correct" color, it's about achieving the same color rendition that the camera provides.

And from what I know neither I nor anybody else outside of Adobe had any success in creating matching profiles with the tools we're provided.

The OM-D series is hugely popular and MANY users love the colors these cameras produce. Adobe could make us VERY happy!

Some information that may help the decision (on http://www.43rumors.com):

"First preorder reaction: E-M1 most sold overall(!) camera at Amazon US!

12 hours after the announcement the Olympus E-M1 is the most sold (orders+ preorders) digital camera at Amazon US (Click here to see the ranking). ..."

I am also pleased to see that this is under consideration. I have been using Lightroom since the original version one. My cameras of choice are presently Olympus 4/3 and Panasonic m4/3 and would be grateful to benefit from some camera matching profiles.

Purchased the OMD EM1 and also had the EM5. The olympus jpegs have gorgeous skin tones and overall colour that I just CANNOT tweak to get in lightroom. In Lr there is a terrible green cast to everything. I hate having to use the Olympus software, then exporting to Lr to finish my edits. Please PLEASE create some profiles for the OMD cameras. Some people, like myself just can't lug around big old canon and nikon anymore.

What version of Lightroom do you have? LR 5.3 has profiles for many Olympus cameras including E-P5, E-M1 and E-M5. And the profiles are very good.

Updated!! Ugh this is too much work! I just want to take pictures, lol. Thanks Thomas, these colours are MUCH better. I've been trying to get the colours right inside this church with no success but now it looks good and I can keep all the little details. Thanks again.
