New color profiles for Lumix DMC-G8 (G85/G80/G81)
7

Based on the idea originally expressed on this post:

https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/58075625

And based on the fact that Adobe now officially provides the color profiles for the new GH5, I used the dcpTool to decompiled the GH5 profiles and recompiled them just changing the model string to "Panasonic GMC-G8". So, now, we can see the profiles in Lightroom:

Camera profiles for my G85 RAW file.

Here is the download link:

You just need to copy all DCP files to the folder:

C:\Users\{user name}\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles

Please let me know if it works for you

I am not sure if it is 100% accurate with the camera original profiles since the sensor in the GH5 is different then the one in the G85, but, at least those are the latest "official Adobe" color profiles for Panasonic, so, maybe that counts for something...

Works for me in Lightroom on my Intel Mac.

The colours seem a bit over cooked, Reds mainly, so could be sensor difference as you say.  I find the Cine D profile most useful.

Nice work, thank you. (Panasonic dmc-G80)

Cool! Let me know if, besides "working" (aka, showing up on LR), if the colors look accurate for you

Think I was editing the text when you replied :))

Well compared to the camera jpegs the colours from the profiles look rather over done, especially the Reds, interesting slight changes in hue too, not very much though.

I find that for me, the Cinelike D profile is very useful.

Was thinking the colours shouldn't be that far off, so went back and checked my LR settings... in my haste I forgot that I had set up a preset to be applied during raw import, re-set that and checked again..  glad to say colours are now very very close to out of camera jpegs when using the standard camera profile, have not had time to check the others but would think they are fine too.

Again, very well done and thank's for making these available.

Cheers, Colin.

Awesome! Good to know.

I still didn't have time to test myself. I will post some boring CC passport shots later for comparison

Here are some boring sample pictures. I have all them processed in camera from the same RAW file, and then on Lightroom. The only thing I did in LR was to change the color profile.

STD:

STD - G85

STD - LR

VIVID:

VIVID - G85

VIVID - LR

MONO:

MONO - G85

MONO - LR

L.MONO:

L.MONO - G85

L.MONO - LR

SCNY:

SCNY - G85

SCNY - LR

PORT:

PORT - G85

PORT - LR

If you want to play around, here it is a ZIP files with all JPEGs and the RAW file:

They look pretty near "spot-on" to me, well done, and thank's for the link.

Cheers,  Colin.

Panasonic/Lightroom released profiles for your camera. Thats why you have two now.

Re: New color profiles for Lumix DMC-G8 (G85/G80/G81)

Lightroom just released official profiles, so, that is why you see doubles. Just delete those old ones and use just the Adobe official ones.

If you read my OP, I pointed out where to put the files (so, you should just remove them there). In Windows they are at:

C:\Users\{user name}\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles

Ok. I got a bit confused cause they were named the same.

I guess the built in profiles is not stored in this folder, but nowadays are built in LR?

All best!

Exactly. That folder is just for custom profiles. Offical LR profiles are in another directory.
