Lightroom, the R, color temperature.
1

Is it something on my side, or the color temperature is way off in Lightroom CC/Classic for shots taken with the R?

I have to set it above 8000K to get a balanced sunlight shot. Compared to the M5, in the same scenery, i need to add at least 2000K to get the same result.

Re: Lightroom, the R, color temperature.

Using AWB (ambient), there is a slight difference, but not 'way off'.

Standard Picture style

Adobe color is default with a little more contrast and warm tone compared to Adobe Standard. But DPP, Adobe Color and Adobe standard are close enough I think.

What I mean is the actual absolute number for the temperature:  a normal, AWB shot appears neutral with the Adobe Color/Standard profile. But the temperature slider is  just short of  8000K, while it should be about 6000K.

Yes. I have noticed that too.

This is a good example. Needs more than 20 000 K

That's strange.

This screams bug.

You can file a report at adobe.

Re: Lightroom, the R, color temperature.

I had this same issue with ACR / Lr with the R as well.  I was getting a WB reading of 6450 and tint of -40 (yes, negative 40) on images shot at kelvin 5500K.  The same RAW file on my friends computer would open up 7250K, +8 tint.  I had to uninstall Ps and Lr, scrape out the remaining folders, reinstall and now all is well in the world.

Reinstalling the whole thing is out of question. Restoring all my setup is a couple of days' work.

I'll try opening an issue with Adobe. Either case this seems an issue with ACR/LR.

Re: Lightroom, the R, color temperature.

I get a similar thing with Fuji's new X-T3 in Lightroom.

I downloaded this RAW file and as shot AWB shows these numbers...

Damn!

I  think Adobe is running a copy-paste approach sometimes when they want to rush the profiles out the door after a camera release but haven´t had the time to develop them properly from scratch.
