Hidden in the LR 5.3 release notes... camera profiles for damn near every Oly m43 body ever
Dec 12, 2013

As a software developer I like to read the release notes when a new release of software that I use ships. In any case, way down at the bottom of them I saw this tidbit:

  • Added Camera Matching color profiles (Natural, Muted, Portrait, Vivid) for the following Olympus cameras:
    • Olympus E-5
    • Olympus E-M1
    • Olympus E-M5
    • Olympus E-P1
    • Olympus E-P2
    • Olympus E-P3
    • Olympus E-P5
    • Olympus E-PL1
    • Olympus E-PL1s
    • Olympus E-PL2
    • Olympus E-PL3
    • Olympus E-PL5
    • Olympus E-PL6
    • Olympus E-PM1
    • Olympus E-PM2
    • Olympus STYLUS 1
    • Olympus XZ-1
    • Olympus XZ-2
    • Olympus XZ-10

Holy moly!  In any case, I installed Lightroom 5.3, applied the "Natural" profile, and it looks pretty good.  I'm curious to compare it with an in-camera JPEG just to see how close it is.  Let the fun ensue...

Does this mean it can apply JPEG processing like Olympus viewer (same as In camera JPEG processing)? - if so that will be amazing.

My guess is that Olympus finally worked with Adobe to provide the profiles, which means they should be pretty darn close to the output from Olympus Viewer.

I checked against an in-camera JPEG and it was close but not exactly the same.  I don't have time to do any good comparisons at the moment (must get some sleep) but before too long I expect to see some here by more industrious members.

Either way, I expect the "Camera Natural" profile to be my new import default.

I think if its very close, than that would be close enough, a great starting point for processing Raws. I am going to update to 5.3 asap to see for myself.

Excellent find! Thanks for sharing it here - I'm surprised it's taken this long for someone to find and publicize this fact.

I just upgraded to 5.3 and changed my default (import) preset camera profile to camera natural. Good stuff!

Any problem with the RC? Can or should it be a separate install rather than an upgrade?

Just install the 5.3, it will automatically remove the RC.

Since nobody else has done yet this I chose a random photo with a range of colors and applied the different profiles:

Adobe (default)

Muted

Natural

Portrait

Vivid

finally ACR/LR will correct lateral CA for Olympus/Sigma/Panasonic lenses on E-M1 from the data supplied by camera's firmware... tested and Warp* tags have data for 3 planes (RGB) in DNGs converted from ORFs

Until today I never noticed that "Muted" puts a warm/brownish hue on greens. Compared to Olympus Viewer and it does the same. So LR hits it.

Great! Thanks! Might be worthwhile to upgrade to this version.

I hope some forum members can provide comparisons of how the profiles renders skintones.
