Recently David set up a new downloads area were we can share Lightroom camera profiles.

The files I uploaded went live yesterday (friday) and in the first 24 hours there were 565 downloads.

Looks like this could be a very popular part of the site if more people got involved in sharing.

Surely the chief advantage of creating a camera profile is that it reflects the sensor in your own camera?

? Are you sure they are camera profiles.

To me the ones that have been created appear to be more like lens profiles as they are for different lenses with the same camera.

So why do you need different camera profiles for different lenses ?

Because different lenses can have different effects.

The difference that exists between Adobe's generic profiles and your own camera profile is just as likely to exist if you try sharing home-cooked profiles with others. Those profiles are only more accurate to begin with because they've been produced by measuring the colour response of your own sensor. That same type of sensor might very well vary between one manufacturing batch and the next.

Lenses have different colour characteristics, especially pronounced if you like mixing up your brands.

That is why I thought they were lens profiles not camera profiles.

So your trying to tell me no two 5D Mk111 sensors will be the same or deliver the same results Smile

Ah well guess we better all go back to using the default adobe profile.

Well, my version of Lightroom 5 thinks they are profiles.

Your looking in the wrong section, camera profiles and lens profiles are not the same.

Nope, I'm trying to tell you that even same-model cameras can vary in their output. Do you imagine Adobe don't use actual 5D MkIII bodies when creating profiles? They're providing you with a generic profile, you're rejecting it, and now you're providing someone else with a generic profile, which is what it becomes when it's not applied to your camera.
