NEX 5 camera profile in Lightroom or ACR?

Anybody knows, is there any lightroom / ACR camera profile for NEX 5? Not a lens profile!

The last versions of Lightroom 2 (2.7) and ACR for Photoshop 4 won't handle the Nex raw files. Lightroom 3 and Photoshop 5 will handle the raw files. If you don't have either of the new versions you can use the latest DNG converter from Adobe to convert the Sony raw files to DNG files that will work in the prior versions.

cheers.......

Thank you, but I have Lightroom 3.2 and I can open NEX-5 raw files (ARW). I search for a camera/color profile for NEX with the purpose of obtaining converted images like jpegs out of camera but with added benefits of PP realized in Lightroom or ACR (sharpening, lens correction, WB, etc)

I found some Lightroom goodies for NEx though these are from the era when lightroom did not support NEX it seems

Re: NEX 5 camera profile in Lightroom or ACR?

The latest versions of ACR & LR 3.3 should not need extra camera profiles for the NEX to be installed as they are setup to handle NEX files. However don't expect LR etc to open up RAW files that exactly mimic those processed by the camera - such files usually need some extra tweaking to optimise output & that after all is why people use RAW.

Some people like to use presets to get a wide range of different starting images & to give their pics a distinctive style but it is debatable if such images are accurate with regard to real colour etc. There is no harm in downloading such presets & trying them however.

Jpeg processing although much improved these days cannot ideally handle pics taken in a variety of lighting situations & that is why experienced users prefer to use RAW.
