I’ve finally gotten around to playing with the raw files out of the Panasonic LX100 I bought last week, and was disappointed yesterday to find that only the Adobe Standard calibration profile exists, and it’s pretty flat and yucky looking. I haven’t played yet enough to know how faithful it is, but there’s also a pretty strong hue shift in the reds vs the out of camera JPEGs, and I don’t love it.
Well, in hopes of getting myself a better jumping off point, I bought the Huelight LX100 profiles from http://www.colorfidelity.com/panasonic.htm yesterday. I installed them this morning right after an Adobe Camera Raw update that seems to have come out last night, and suddenly I seem to have a whole lot more profiles in that menu than I did before!
I haven’t had any time to play, but at first glance, the Camera Standard profile is quite faithful to the default out-of-camera JPEGs – at least as faithful as the Can0n 70D Camera Standard profile is to that camera’s on-board default processing, which is what I’m used to. I’ll have to see if this is true for a few more shots, but if so, I’m totally prepared to start shooting raw only!
If you’ve been looking for better baseline raw rendering from the LX100, have a look at your updates and see if these have landed for you also, then let me know in the comments.
