Sony (and Minolta) color profiles for Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe Lightroom - UPDATED 2015/10/17

I've created new Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe Lightroom color profiles (standard, faithful, landscape, leica, portrait, neutral, positive film, skin tone darker, skin tone lighter, vivid blue, vivid green, vivid red e vivid) for every Sony (and Minolta) interchangeable lens cameras:
I've photographed, under the direct sunlight, a 24 color GretagMacbeth / X-Rite table, then, after converting the RAW to DNG, I've created the standard color profiles with Adobe DNG Profile Editor. Starting from the standard profile and using as reference the "non standard" Nikon, Canon and Leica's profiles, I've created the creative profiles.
The standard profiles are accurate only for the A700, the A850, the A900, the A55V, the NEX-5, the NEX-5N, the RX100 and the RX100M2 (where I've photographed the color table with the corresponding camera), for the other cameras I've just used the best matching one.

The profile files must be saved under the following folder (be aware that it could be hidden):

Windows:
"C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles"

MAC OS:
"HD/users/yourusername/LibraryApplicationSupport/Adobe/CameraRaw/CameraProfile"


NEW October 10, 2015
  • Sony ILCE-5100, DSC-RX10M2, DSC-RX100M4 new color profiles
  • Fixed SLT-A77 and ILCA-A77M2 (note that Sony has moved the name from SLT to ILCA in the last A77M2, I hope that the next Alpha mount camera will be a mirrorless without the translucent mirror)

I'd like to say Thank You, for Your Alpha Profiles, shared around this web ...

Maurizio said...

Thank you for the comment.

Aurelio Vieira said...

Thanks for this great job.

Hugo said...

wow, thank you very much for doing this.

Russell said...

Grazie Millie Mauizio!

These profiles, ESPECIALLY the Minolta 7D, are greatly appreciated!

Russ

Mycroft Holmes said...

Thanks for sharing the profiles.
One comment: would you consider changing the internal profile name to be identical to the file name?
When Lightroom shows them in the list, you see something like "Vivid", so it's hard to know if it picked the right file.

Maurizio said...

The correct profile is always chosen, LR search the camera id inside each files.

novak said...

Hi There,
Awesome work - a huge thing for alpha/nex owners.
A question- now that LR 3.5 is out - any chance of creating profiles for 5N anytime soon?

Maurizio said...

I've just updated the colour profiles adding support for all the new sony models (A65, A77, NEX-C3, NEX-5N and NEX-7).

C.Ryo said...

Thanks so much for your work and sharing.

Crix said...

Thanks for your efforts and your generosity in helping others!
Is the profile for the 5N created with the camera or did you just choose an existing one that matched?
Best regards,
Christian

Maurizio said...

Actually the NEX-5N standard profile is based on the NEX-5 real profile. I'm still thinking what NEX buy, the 5N or the 7.

misianne said...

Grazie. Molto gentile da parte tua.

AXII said...

Hi, thank you so much for these... may I get some help? I've tried looking for the folder to install this, but I don't have CameraRaw, only Lightroom. Where must I install these files for Lightroom? Thank you much again..

Maurizio said...

The folder is the same also if you don't have PhotoShop installed, CameraRaw and LightRoom share the same engine.

AXII said...

After a little digging, I found the folder :) It was hidden, and I had hidden folders turned on. Thanks again Maurizio!

Maurizio said...

I forgot to write that the folder is hidden in Windows.

John Inglis said...

Thank you for this God send for those who are who are challenged by all this--let alone bringing new life to my Nex 5! Thank you so much

Maurizio said...

Thank to everyone for your comments!

Crix said...

Hi Maurizio,
I was also tempted between 5N+EVF and 7.
7 has more knobs, integrated EVF and flash shoe, better looks, but too much pixels (Comparing A77 versus 5N at dpreview comparometer, 5N is better IQ IMHO) and more noise. The 300 Euros plus is not deciding factor.

The 5N apparently has excellent IQ, small size, EVF is tiltable and touchscreen, but only alternating use of flash/evf/extmicro.

In the end, IQ is the most important thing for me. I have a remote control unit triggerable with the integrated one, so that is not BIG problem.

And lastly, I thought, inspite of all the hype, a 7 is still only a premium compact camera with CDAF, so it still lacks a lot compared to any DSLR - except the price -)).

The 5N is the same, but at least with a much lower, adequate price. And when taking a look at the fastly revolving evolution wheel of bodies (M43 bodies within less than 6 months, Nex 3, 5, C3, 5N and soon 7 within less than 1.5 years) an even better Nex will be lurking around the corner.
So I'd recommend the 5N now and tommorow, who knows -))

Maurizio said...

I just ordered the NEX-5N...

邪惡藍 said...

Very thank for you. My KM D5D , NEX5, A850 is useful on that!

MostOfTheTime said...

Thanks!
Great profiles for A900 and A700.

Shawn R said...

Thanks for creating these. I've been able to install the A55 and A700 profiles, but the KM7D is in XML format. How do I install those?

Maurizio said...

I fixed the 7D and 5D profiles there was a wrong file extension.

Liew said...

Just install Sony NEX5.
Really appreciate your work..

Crix said...

Hi Maurizio,

still no good weather for updating the 5N files? :-)
How are yor experiences with your 5N
Best regards,
Christian

Maurizio said...

I hope to have the time tomorrow, it's not so easy with a work and a family with two little children.
I really like the 5N, I mainly shot with manual lenses in raw, and so I've not used to much many of its features (that are jpeg and af lenses only), but the quality of the files (photo and video) is much better than the NEX-5.

ed said...

Thank you very much for this great job. Now I have to learn to work with it.
Really appreciate your work.

Deckchairboy said...

Thank you very much, the A700 profile is excellent - I appreciate you sharing them.

yanello said...

Grazie infinite! Lavoro straordinario!

Arimin said...

Graet job !!! Thanks for shearing !!

Fabio Bucchieri said...

Grazie mille!!! Sei un grande!

Ivars said...

Thanks for profiles ;)
I just want to correct You - in Windows 7 one should save in the following folder: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles

Maurizio said...

The folder I've shown is the general one and it's valid for every windows users, yours folder is correct but the profiles will be avaible only for one user.

Raff said...

Thanks - any chance you can give me some pointers how I can load up the profile in Light Room (Adobe) once they are saved on my MAC? bit new to this... Cheers

Maurizio said...

Just copy the correct camera folder (for example "Sony SLT-A77") under the path "/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/CameraProfiles/Camera".
Now you will find the profiles under the Develop module, Camera Calibration section.

Raff said...

Thanks so much Maurizio - 1st day on light room so a lot to learn.. Loving the colour profiles esp Faithful and Neutral... Found the standard Adobe profile made all the Nex 7 shots look way over saturated... Keep up the great work! Raff

rc.d [aka initd] said...

Thanks for sharing these profiles with us. Great work!

Unknown said...

Maurizio -- I apologize, but I can't find the folder /library/applicationsupport... on my Mac. Any additional clues?

bookmatch said...

Will these profiles work with Lightroom 4? I have a Sony SLT-A65 with the most recent firmware.

Maurizio said...

The profiles are compatible with the last LR version 4.0 and even with the 4.1 rc2.

A. said...

thank you for the effort maurizio!

i'm going to try these settings :)

grazie mille!

SCREAMER said...

Thank's for profiles, I'd used a200, a700 and a55 ones, but now I've bought A57 and need a profile for it.
If U don't have enough time, please share the method to create one, it must be same sensor as nex-5N

Maurizio said...

I'll post it in the next week.

mohd izhar mohd yunos said...

thanks maurizio for the a57 profile

Maurizio said...

Let me know if it’s working correctly, I’ve no way to test it.

Jessica "Su Good Sweets" said...

Thank you!!!!! I just bought the Sony A-57 but my version of Lightroom doesn't support the profile.

Maurizio said...

The color profiles are supported from version 2.0 to the last version 4.1. Which version do you own?

Andrew Visconti said...

hi ,i stumbled across this, are these profiles for the a57 sony for video ?

Maurizio said...

The color profiles can be used to develop photos with Adobe Lightroom or Adobe PhotoShop and Camera Raw.

Corrado Casoni said...

Ho una 7D e una Nex5...
Grazie, grazie e ancora grazie !!!

Michael Severini said...

Any chance you would create a profile for the Nex-7 for Aperture 3.3?

Maurizio said...

I don't use Aperture and I don't known it very well, but I think there are no tools to create color profiles for it.

MajorTom123 said...

Will you also post RX100 profiles? Adobe just published an RC of ACR and Lightroom with RX100 support. I love this little camera. :)

Maurizio said...

The new release candidate versions of ACR and LR already include Standard, Landscape, Portrait and Vivid profiles for the RX-100 and the NEX cameras.
In the following days I'll update my profiles, using the Adobe ones when available.

Kevin Reilly said...

Thanks so much. The standard profile looks perfect with my A55 photographs. Great job!

Janaka Jayasuriya said...

Thank's a lot! Definitely trying this when I get home. I was wondering whether there was something wrong with my camera :S! So this colour profile thing seems to be the answer. I saw a Youtube video pointing to your blog.

Helio said...

Thanks for sharing

regretela said...

Thank you sooo much for the Sony SLT a57 profiles! I will definitely enjoy using them!

DRAMILL said...

Thanks so much for your work and sharing.
I have a Sony SLT-A57K model. Is there an original camera profile for Lightroom?

Maurizio said...

You should use the A57 profile's link, the "K" only means that your model is sold with the kit lens.

Neill Pearson said...

I really love your profiles and have used them for all my Sony cameras.
Is there way to make them work fully in LR4?

Currently if I use the A77 profile it wants to switch back to the previous LR3 options.

Maurizio said...

I'm using the color profiles with LR 4.2 without any issue, could you please more specific on the error? Are you using LR3 saved presets? If so, you should save them again with LR4.

Neill Pearson said...

Sorry you are correct! I used one of your profiles to create a preset in LR3 before I upgraded to LR4.
When using that preset in LR4 it reverts back to the LR3 settings.
I have now created a new preset using one of your recent profiles and all is well. I was getting mixed up between profiles and presets.

gsaronni said...

I am using the profiles for ages, but now I have upgraded to Windows Seven and Photoshop CS6 and I don´t know where is the Camera Raw folder to install them

Any tip?

Maurizio said...

"C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles\Camera"

Alexander Kirkeby Eieland said...

Great service! Thanks! I would like however to see a profile for the Nex-6 -Do you think you could create one for that camera aswell?

In the meantime, might the profiles for Nex-5n or Nex-7 be a good alternative?

Wolfgang.T said...

Hi Maurizio,
many thanks for your nex 5n profiles.
Now I use an nex 6.
Can I use the profiles also?
Thanks Wolfgang

Maurizio said...

I'll post some new profiles in the following days, including A99 and NEX-6

Hams Nocete said...

hi, i cant seee the c:/ Program data..is it same with Program files?

Wolfgang.T said...

Still many thanks for your fine profiles.
Can we hope for Nex 6 Profiles, you are still working on it?
Grazie

ScottE said...

Thank you for the profiles!

Would you be able to make a NEX-5R set when you create the NEX-6 downloads??

I love your 5n & A57 color profiles and would be ecstatic to use them for the 5R

Maurizio said...

NEX-5R and NEX-6 profiles are ready!

Deckchairboy said...

Grazie Mille Maurizio very good indeed when I used them in combination with convert to dng on import.

Unknown said...

Thank you!

Wolfgang.T said...

Great!! Thanks!!!

Сергей Губерниев said...

A77 not work in ACR 7.3
Why?!
(work in ver 7.2 and <)

Maurizio said...

Starting from ACR 7.3 and LR 4.3 the profiles must be located on your roaming profile folder:

Windows:
"C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles"

MAC OS:
"HD/users/yourusername/LibraryApplication Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/CameraProfile"

Kyungmoo Kim said...

you wrote 'NEWS December 12, 2012
DSLR-A99, DSC-RX1, NEX-5R and NEX-6 new color profiles'

Could you tell me where I can download the a99 profile please?

Maurizio said...

I fixed the A99 link.

Kyungmoo Kim said...

Thanks for the a99 profiles, but they don't work in my case. I think these profiles should be for a99v not a99.

Maurizio said...

I fixed the A99 profiles, exif reports A99V instead of A99 (like for the A55) and ACR/LR didn't recognize them.

Joel said...

Hi, Big thanks for your profiles it seems to been great!
I have one problem, it only appears 5 profiles in Lightroom, not all of them. I have saved the folder into the camera raw folder and as i said, five if the appear in Lightroom but the rest don't.

I have the nex 7 and i need help, what can i do to make all of them to appear in Lightroom.

Maurizio said...

It was my mistake, just download the NEX-7 profiles again.

dynacam said...

Thanks for the NEX-6 profiles

JimL said...

Thank you very much for the NEX-7 profiles. I found a link to these profiles and a very favorable comment on the NEX-7 forum at Flickr. I appreciate your taking the time and trouble.

Grant Wilson said...

Thank you very much for your work! It is very much appreciated.

Auke Hoekstra said...

I bought my A77 today to replace my A700 and was trying to make Lightroom work best for its pictures. Thank you for sharing the profiles. Nice work!

Marc Garrett said...

Just tried out the RX1 profile. Many thanks for creating these.

josefwells said...

Any chance you could share some of the RAW files (specifically the RX100 for my interests, but others too might be nice) with the "Darktable" open source project? They use these to set up extended color matrices.

Francesco Campanella said...

Maurizio grazie per l'immenso lavoro che hai fatto!
Devo però farti una domanda, forse banale!
ho effettuato la copia dei profili nella cartella di lightroom, come da te spiegato, ma non ho capito, una volta aperto il programma, come caricare o usare questi preset.
grazie per la risposta e grazie ancora per il lavoro!

Maurizio said...

Trovi i profili nella sezione Camera Settings, del modulo sviluppo di Lightroom. Vengono visualizzati solo quelli compatibili con la fotocamera utilizzata per la foto selezionata.

chiumeister said...

Hi,

I copied the Sony RX1 profiles into the Camera/Sony DSC-RX1 subfolder but neither Photoshop 6 or Lightroom 4.3 see any of them. Can you please check the files again. Thanks so very much.

alonzoh said...

Unfortunately most of the SLT-A57 profiles seem to be broken, the images get a green tinge when i apply faithful, neutral, vivid, and landscape (leica doesn't even appear). Please can you fix them. Would be really nice. Thank you very much.

Maurizio said...

I checked the RX1 profiles testing them with an arw sample image and they work flawlessy.
Are you shure you put the files under the folder
"C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles"

chiumeister said...

On my Mac, i placed the .dcp files into myHD/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw as well as myHD/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/Camera/Sony DSC-RX1

Maurizio said...

Dear Alonzoh, I rebuild the A57 profiles, could you check them again?

Francesco Cornaggia said...

Grazie! Utilissimi.

Excel Solutions Asia said...

A big thank you not for just the links for how and where to save them. I was having a problem trying to understand the profiles and why nothing was showing excepts Adobe Standard. After hours of forum reading your post solved it! A HUGE thank you

olli thomson said...

Thank you. This is very generous of you.

Alex Abdi said...

Cam you create a Fuju like color profile for the SLT cameras please?

Skip Plitt said...

Maurizio, thank you for the Sony a77 profiles. I think I finally figured out how to get them in my LR4.3 (after several attempts). Here's how I did it: After downloading your profiles I unzipped the folder and moved all of the profiles into a folder on my desktop. From there I searched for and opened the correct file that has the Camera Profiles (per your instructions) and then moved each profile into the Camera Profiles folder. Afterwards I opened up LR4.3, picked a photo to develop, scrolled down to the Camera Calibration header and clicked onto the appropriate profile. They all seemed to be there. I can't wait to try them out. Thanks again.

jennied said...

Question: I was able to install these for my a850 into LR3, but not LR4. Advice?

Thank you so, so much for these!

Maurizio said...

You must put the profiles under the folder:
C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles\Sony DSLR-A850\

Stephen Loos said...

I am so confused on how to get your camera profiles into lr4! I have downloaded the a77 file and unzipped it but that's as far as I can get. Could you please walk me through the process, step by step? I have no idea what you mean by "just save it to your HD, users,..."

Stephen Loos said...

I found the contents folder under Lr4 but there was no library folder. I tried going to resources and found camera profiles but when I pasted the dng files in that folder they didn't show up under the camera calibration section of Lightroom. I even tried restarting the computer and Lightroom and that didn't help either. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Stephen Loos said...

Nevermind, I figured it out. Man was that a doozy! I figured out that you have to go under the develop presets folder in lightroom and find it that way. Anyhow, thank you for your good work, they work great!

josewela said...

Thank you for the A77 profile!
Great job.

craig s said...

wow, thanks so much! My NEX-5N also thanks you!

The Otter said...

The link for RX1 profile is not working. Can you please correct it. Thank you

Maurizio said...

The RX1 link works. Could you check it again.

Thanks
Maurizio

The Otter said...

Thanks Maurizio. The RX1 link worked this time.

BoY SecA said...

Hi Maurizio,

I tried to copy and install the A700 profile to my Lr 4.4 based on instruction given but it didn't work.

Anything I missed out? Please help. Thanks in advance!

Maurizio said...

Did you follow the guide?
You'll see the profile under Camera Calibration section.

The Otter said...

I am having the same problem as BoY SecA. OS X 10.8.3 LR 4.4.

In the develop section, under Camera calibration I don't see anything setting starting with Sony DSC-RX1.

Please advice.

The Otter said...

Never mind. I removed the presets, checked LR, and then added them back in, and noticed the added Camera Profiles.

Is there a way for me to rename the profiles so they showup with my camera name in front of it?

Maurizio said...

Dear Otter,

"Camera Name" has no sense in front of profiles names, LR will show you only the matching profile of the camera belonging to the selected picture.
Also, with standard names, you can, for example, assign "Vivid" profile to all the imported images, despite of the camera model.

The Otter said...

Pavlos Papageorgiou said...

Oh thank you so much! I was on the point of selling my a65 for its awful color fidelity, and now instead I can enjoy it. Thank you!

www.nellifoto.hu said...

Thank You, for Your Alpha Profiles.

Can you modify them to work in Lightroom5?

Maurizio said...

The profiles works with Lightroom 5.
Did you put them in the right folder?

www.nellifoto.hu said...

C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles

LR4.4 OK
LR5 not working

www.nellifoto.hu said...

Sorry, user error. A580 profile and A700 arw.

Now everything is perfect

I'm happy :)

Maxim Kovalev said...

Not working in Adobe Camera Raw 8.1. When I use ACR 7.1 all are good, but in ACR 8.1 Adobe ships own profiles and yours not visible in combobox "Camera Profile"! What is it?

Gagan Kaushal said...

Thanks for the profiles. But as commented earlier, the profiles for Sony a57 are making the photos very green. Can you please look into this?

Maurizio said...

Re: Not working in Adobe Camera Raw 8.1. When I use ACR 7.1 all are good, but in ACR 8.1 Adobe ships own profiles and yours not visible in combobox "Camera Profile"! What is it?

The profiles are working with LR 5.0 and ACR 8.1, did you put the files under the correct folder:
C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles\

Maurizio said...

Re: Thanks for the profiles. But as commented earlier, the profiles for Sony a57 are making the photos very green. Can you please look into this?

I download some A57 raw files from here: http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/sony_a57_review/sample_images/

I didn't notice any green color cast, with any of the profiles.
Could you try to download the profiles again?

Alexander Thömmes said...

Hello,

I have problems with using the Lightroom profile for my Sony A65.
Only the Adobe Standard Profile is available.

Maybe the problem is that in lightroom 4.4 the modell of the arw file is "SLT A65V" and not "SLT A65"

Could you please help me and add the profiles also for the SLT A65V?

Thanks

Nichole said...

I am in the same boat as Alexander above. I cannot get the profiles for my A65 to show up in LR or ACR! I think I have them in the right folder but I am not sure. I just recently added LR 4 and I am not sure what I did wrong. PLEASE Help. My pictures look yucky!

Maurizio said...

I've fixed the A65 profiles, adding a V to the camera name: SLT-A65V

Dalton Bryant said...

When I download the Sony A65 profile it shows up as a .xml file and won't work.

Maurizio said...

Re: "When I download the Sony A65 profile it shows up as a .xml file and won't work."


I've fixed the A65V zip file, try to download it again.

Maurizio said...

Re: "When I download the Sony A65 profile it shows up as a .xml file and won't work."


I've fixed the A65V zip file, try to download it again.

Ugo Baldassarre said...

ciao Maurizio. Grazie mille per questi utilissimi profili. Non ho ancora risolto il problema della patina rossa appena Lr va ad aprire il file dopo l'importazione ma almeno ho qualche possibilità di scelta adesso. Perchè si verifica questa alterazione nell'apertura del raw?

Maurizio said...

Che versione di LR usi?
Non ho mai avuto problemi di patina rossa in LR, hai provato ad aggiornare il driver della scheda video.

Ugo Baldassarre said...

Ho LR 4,4 ma mi porto questo problema già da alcune versioni della 4 (prima non lo usavo e non usavo neanche Sony, quindi non saprei).
In pratica subito dopo aver importato (e visualizzato correttamente il raw per alcuni secondi) viene applicata una patina rossastra-saturazione+. L'unico software che non mi crea il problema è quello nativo della fotocamera (me lo fa con tutte a77, a900, a58).

Maurizio said...

Hai controllato di non avere un' "impostazione di sviluppo" applicata automaticamente in fase di importazione, altrimenti ti suggerisco di disinstallare LR, cancellare tutte le cartelle Cameraraw e Lighroom che trovi in varie posizioni, sotto il profilo utente, e installare nuovamente LR.
Se vuoi provare la 5.2RC che va molto bene, puoi scaricarla a questo link:
http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/lightroom5-2.html

orcasmac said...

I'll add my grateful thanks for the RX-100 profiles. Very helpful indeed, and it saved me the trouble of creating them myself! ;-)

Thanks again,
Dave

Dave Apodaca said...

Hey there, I have downloaded the A65 profiles and copied them to the correct folder but they are not showing up. LR 4.4 Any ideas?

Maurizio said...

I had changed the camera name from SLT-A65 to SLT-A65V, as requested by Dalton Bryant, but checking them with A65 raw samples, I've discovered that the correct name recognized by LR is SLT-A65, so I revert things back and I've fixed the zip file (try to download it again).

Anyway the correct folder on Windows is:
C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles

Dave Apodaca said...

That fixed it...Thank you so much!

David Landry said...

I just tried to import the NEX 6 presets into LR 4.4 and they are greyed out. I noticed they have a file extension of .dcp. Shouldn't it have an ext. of .lrtemplate?
Am I missing something?
Thanks
David

Francis Shum said...

Thank you for the profiles.

The Landscape profile for A65 is broken. Please check. Thanks again.

Maurizio said...

RE: Francis Shum said...

The color profiles have the correct extension, they will show up in the camera calibration section.

Francis Shum said...

Thank you so much Maurizio. The Landscape profile for A65 is all ok now.

Fitz said...

Hi. Will these work with Photoshop Elements 11/12? Many thx.

Maurizio said...

RE: Fitz said...

-------------------------
They works with Adobe Camera Raw, so I think that they should works under Elements.

Mike said...

Thanks so much for the profiles for my Sony A700 & A850.
Can you comment on the difference between faithful and standard ? I am using Lightroom 5 to proof for printing on my Epson R3000.

Maurizio said...

For color calibrate your printer you must use the standard profile.
Faithfull profile is derived from the Canon one:

Fitz said...

Re Photoshop Elements - they do work, many thx.

prabu said...

THANK YOU!! This made my day and I cannot express how useful it is for me!! Best wishes and God bless.

Wolfgang.T said...

Hi Maurizio,
do you plan to make profiles for the
Sony A7.
That would be fantastic.
I don`t know if you like that Camera?
NiceTime!!!

Chongnuo Ji said...

Great Job! Thanks so much!
But I wanna point out,Sony A58 has the same COMS as ILCE-3000,so you can just copy A58 profile to be ILCE-3000.
It is true,open the PS ACR profile folder see its Adobe Standard Profile,really the same!
I just use dcptool to change its model, works great!

Maurizio said...

I've just uploaded new ILCE profiles.

Michele Caminati said...

GRANDISSIMO!!!!!!!!!!! Mi piacciono ytantissimo i tuoi profili per la Sony-5n, non vedo l'ora di provare quelli per la A7! ;-)

One of Nex 7 Profile seems a bit too green for my liking. Or did ACR software causing this to go green like Adobe does green things? Just curious. The clouds in skies should be blue/grey not green/blue/grey. I have never seen skies with green/blue/grey before. lol Maybe it could have been twisted profile?

Helen Yuan said...

Hi - I'm using Mac. I tried to copy the Sony ILCE-7 profile for Lightroom5 but I cant see those Sony ILCE-7 Leica or Vivid Blue or other that you created. Do those suppose to be seen on the pulldown camera calibration menu of Lightroom5 too?

James said...

Thanks so much for the NEX-F3 profiles!

Andreas Petersson said...

I got a nex-5T and tried to get nex-5r but i cant use it. Does it have to be 5T specific?

Maurizio said...

Dear Andreas, you need NEX-5T specific profiles, I'll upload them in the following days.

Ciao
Maurizio

airfang said...

I couldn't use the RX1 one with RX1R, can you please help make one for RX1R? I imagine you just need to set the camera name somewhere before you regenerate the color profiles? Thanks a lot if that's not much hassle!

airfang said...

never mind, found dcpTool and used that to change the values inside the dcp files :)

If you'd like I can send you the updated ones for RX1R

chiumeister said...

airfang

Yes, can you please send me your working profiles for the Sony RX1R.

i am at chiumeister@gmail.com

thanks!

Andreas Petersson said...

Hello again.

Really looking forward to the nex-5t profiles. Cant see that they have been posted.

BR Andreas

Sin Godfrey said...

I really looking forward to the 5T Camera Profile, hope to see this very soon~

Shailesh said...

Thanks for the awesome work. I probably will save lot of time in processing arw files from my Sony SLT A77.

Lucien said...

Thanks so much for the RX1 profiles. It's awesome!

Яро Слав said...

Dear, thank you for your work. It is thanks to you, I realized what a real LightRoom!

Erol Diener said...

Hi Maurizio.
Thanks for all your effort!
Your profiles are very welcome. I really appreciate it.

I'm using LR 5.4 ACR 8.4. Unfortunately all Nex-6 Profiles produce a green tint. To bad. I was hoping to fix that one barrier which currently stops me to switch from Nikon to Sony Nex.

Anyway, thanks a lot.
Erol

Maurizio said...

I've downloaded some NEX-6 raw sample from:

http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/sony_nex_6_review/sample_images/

and I didn't notice any green cast after applying the color profiles, on LR 5.4.

Erol Diener said...

Dear Maurizio,
Thanks again you for your effort to verify the problem I reported.

This is pretty unfair ;)

The raw files which my nex-6 produces, act differently to your profiles than the raws you can download form photographyblog.
Sounds weird, I know. But I was able to reproduce that.
Well, I have no clue about the reason. Maybe because my nex-6 has a different firmware loaded (the latest one) than the nex-6 photographyblog used for their review? Would you mind to check some of my raw's. Could be that there are other nex-6 users facing the same problem.
Thanks. Erol

Erol Diener said...

Dear Maurizio,

I guess I found the reason regarding the green cast I discovered with your nex-6 profiles.

I set the WB while the Adobe "" "Camera Portrait" profile was applied. I used a reference photo where I hold a gray card. The values I got was Temp 5400, Tint 18. Then I applied your profile "Portrait" and got that strong green cast.

Now, while your profile was applied I set the WB again, and voila, the green was gone. The WB values I got now was Temp 5600, Tint 50.

I was not aware that you need to reset the WB when switching over to your profiles. If you stay between your profiles, the WB keeps fine. Just if you change between your and Adobe's one.

There are a few comments here about green casts. It's quite possible that they made the same mistake I did.

Thanks again for your profiles.
They work and look great! :)
Erol

Please note that your Minolta 5D and 7D links are reversed. The 7D link downloads the 5D files, and the 5D link downloads the 7D files.

Maurizio said...

Thanks, I've fixed them.

Lori said...

I have placed the Sony SLT-A77 folder in the following location: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/CameraProfiles/Camera The only profile that shows up in Lightroom 5.4 or Camera Raw 8.4.1 is Adobe Standard. Please help - I am going crazy!

Mr SecondCam said...

Hi Maurizio, I use a Sony RX10 and would love to get Profiles für the different Situations, vivid, landscape etc.
Could you be so kind to provide these files?
Kind regards from germany.

Stefano Calderan said...

Maurizio, c'è qualche possibilità di vedere i profili per la nuova A77 II ?
Grazie!

Richard Gillespie said...

To install Camera Profiles (Mac) right click Lightroom"Show Package Contents","Contents", "Resources", "Camera Profiles". and install into "Camera" folder

Wolfgang.T said...

Hi, Maurizio do you think is there an profile for Sony RX100M3 comming?
It is a great camera!! Thanks for your bussy work!! Wolfgang

Maurizio said...

In the following 2 weeks I've planned to do a complete rebuild of the profiles, including latest Sony cameras, like RX100M3 and A77 II.

Stefano Calderan said...

I'm waiting for your news!!
Thanks! Great work!

Nicola De Cristofaro said...

Salve Maurizio, grazie mille per il tuo lavoro,
sono nuovo al mondo Mac e non riesco proprio a caricare il profilo (ILCE 6000) in Lightroom 5.6, "credo" di aver seguito tutte le istruzioni sopra postate da tutti ma il profilo non viene caricato, la cosa strana e' che ora non mi applica nemmeno i vecchi presets Nikon (me li applica solo sui file Nikon), quando invece all'inizio dello "smanettamento" me li applicava sui file Sony.
Ho confrontato i come si vedono le immagini nell'Image Data Converter v4 e confermo che i tuoi profili non vengono caricati
grazie, Nicola

Nicola De Cristofaro said...

smanetta di qua, smanetta di la', ci sono riuscito

grazie

Maurizio said...

Bene, ti avrei risposto questa sera.
Appena trovo il tempo, ed una giornata di sole per fare le foto alla tavola colori, ho intenzione di aggiornare tutti i profili ed in particolare quelli della A6000 che ho appena acquistato.

ciao
Maurizio

Stefano Calderan said...

Bene!!! (anche io ho una A6000) Se riuscissi anche con quelli della A77II....

Guilherme Maranhão said...

Thank you! I really didn't like the magenta skin the A7s would give people, your portrait profile was a great help!

dikkied said...

Hello Maurizio, I am following your good work. Can you tell me whether (and if so when) you publish an profile for the Sony RX100m3. Mnay thanks in advance and keep up the good work.

Michele Caminati said...

Ciao, grazie mille dell' ottimo lavoro! Ho sempre usato i tuoi profili su nex-5n e Sony A7... ora ho anche la A7s, trovo però che i profili diano risultati un po' differenti su quest'ultima e spesso mi trovo costretto ad intervenire sulla tonalità del canale blu... in particolare adoro il profilo "portrait" su A7, ma sulla A7s ottengo risultati abbastanza differenti, l'effetto è voluto o sono i files della macchina che rendono il profoilo differente?

Maurizio said...

Ciao Michele, grazie per il commento.
Purtroppo non ho una A7S per fotografare la tavola con i colori campione e creare un profilo standard corretto, dal quale derivare i profili creativi (portrait, vivid, ect...).
Probabilmente il sensore della A7S cattura i colori con dominanti diverse rispetto alla A7.

Michele Caminati said...

Grazie mille, è quello che immaginavo, purtroppo hanno una risposta un po' differente su A7s. Per ora cercherò di scattare una foto con gli stessi settaggi su A7 e A7s, applicare i profili e provare a registrare un preset per uguagliarli... senza i tuoi profili i colori delle Sony non mi piacciono u n gran chè! ;-)

Marco Keuthen said...

Thanks a lot for the profiles (using A77)

Elderin Moi said...

Hello Maurizio,

i was unhappy with the colors from my Sony A7r when processing the RAW files. There is no way to adjust them to look like the gorgeous JPEGs in Lightroom. Of course you can change all colors even individually that is all based on your camera profile and the ones for the A7 series are poor in my opinion.

I now use your profile "Faithful" as a starting point and i like it.

I wrote a little article on my blog at gerhardsphoto.com and also put up a link to you site. I hope that is ok with you.

Thanks again.
Elderin

Maurizio said...

Ciao Elderin,

Thank you for the comment and the article on your blog.

I'm sorry I have little time to improve and extend the profiles.

Maurizio
