D800 untwisted camera profiles available
Dec 30, 2012

I used 'Untwisted' versions of camera profiles for my D700 and as I couldn't find any for the D800 I have used the open source DCP Tool to create 'Untwisted' versions of five Adobe D800 camera profiles; AdobeStandard, Camera Landscape, Camera Neutral, Camera Portrait and Camera standard.

If you want to know what impact on a photo using an untwisted profile has see here:

For information about DCP tool and more detail on Hue Twists see here:

You can download the untwisted D800 camera profiles I created here:

Install as follows:

Exit from any running Adobe applications, then copy the file to following location:

On Mac OS X:
in your user folder /Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/CameraProfiles

On Windows 2000 / XP:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles

On Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8:
C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles

Now in the camera profile section of ACR and Lightroom you should see five new profiles each with "dcpTool Untwist" added to the end of the profile name.

The effect of using an untwisted profile varies from image to image and can be quite subtle and the effect can become stronger once tone adjustments are carried out. Feedback welcome. As ever image adjustment is a matter of personal taste.
