Adobe update adds Fujifilm color profiles to Adobe Camera Raw 8.4 RC
Adobe has updated Adobe Camera Raw, adding color profiles for Fujifilm cameras, as well as Raw support for some recent models. The Release Candidate versions of ACR 8.4 for Photoshop CS6 and CC are now better able to mimic Fujifilm's Film Simulation modes - at least in terms of color response.
The camera and profile updates are available for CS6 users, as well as Creative Cloud subscribers. CC subscribers receive a series of additional features not supported in CS6, including a Before/After comparison tool.
In addition to the Fujifilm color profiles, the latest versions of ACR also add support for the following cameras:
- Canon EOS 1200D (REBEL T5, KISS X70)
- Casio EX-100
- DJI Phantom
- Fujifilm X-T1
- Hasselblad H5D-50c
- Hasselblad HV
- Nikon D3300
- Nikon D4S
- Olympus OM-D E-M10 (*)
- Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS40 (DMC-TZ60, DMC-TZ61)
- Phase One IQ250
- Samsung NX30
- Sony Alpha a5000 (ILCE-5000)
- Sony Alpha a6000 (ILCE-6000)
* denotes preliminary support
The update also includes 37 additional lens/camera profiles.
We've prepared a quick comparison of Adobe's versions of Fujifilm's Film Simulation modes, to test how closely they match the originals. Here we have three X-E2 images converted in-camera, using the relevant profile, and in ACR 8.4, using both the corresponding color profile and the existing Adobe Default profile, which was previously included.
The highlight differences in the images are likely to stem from the use of DR200% mode in all three images. Although ACR now interprets the DR setting so that the correct middle grey is achieved, it does not apply different tone curves for the different DR modes, so the highlight response is not consistent with the JPEG result.
