I created my own Lightroom (Camera Raw) Camera Profile for my Nikon D800 and thought I would share it in case it was of any use to others. It is based on the Adobe Standard profile but removes the cyan cast in the blues and the slight magenta cast in the reds (skin tones look better in my opinion). It also rolls off the highlights in a more gentle manner which I prefer.
Download it from here or the Downloads page.
Does this work on Lightroom 5? Thanks.ReplyDelete
Yes, it will work fine in LR 4 & 5 (process 2012)ReplyDelete
I saw that you are a member of the lightroom forums but for some reason I am not able to post there. I am having some frustrating issues with Lightroom. I have been using it for years and I know the ins and outs of it BUT, I am exporting an image which I have dragged up clarity and sharpness. When I export it I have it to the best settings possible without any (to my knowledge) known compression. Though, it comes out much softer than in LR. Do you know what might be going on, and what I could do to avoid this? I will include a comparison as well.
The left is a screenshot from lightroom, the right is a tiff I exported:
Btw I am using Lightrom 4.4. The export settings for this photo was set to 100%, TIF, 300DPI.ReplyDelete

I really like your interpretation. Do you consider also to make a profile for Nikon Df? :)ReplyDelete
Hi Jim, I don't have a Df to test but I have used the profile included in LR and applied the same tweaks. Its in the download section. Let me know if it works - Cheers NikReplyDelete
Yes, I have tried it and it works fine. Thank you very much!ReplyDelete
Hi! Thanks a lot for sharing!ReplyDelete
Do own D800 and struggle with skin tones for a while. Come across possibility of using Adobe's DNG profile editor, looks like what I need. But can't find those beta profiles that are mentioned in forums and articles anymore...
The beta profiles were for older camera's, you don't need them now.ReplyDelete
Hello! Can you renew the link, it does not work now...ReplyDelete
Does this work for a D800E?ReplyDelete
I have created a profile for the D800E, it is in the download section.ReplyDelete
Would you mind describing a bit, how did you make this profile based on Adobe Standard?
I'm interested because I have Nikon D7000 and it seems to me, that Adobe's Standart profile has same issues for my camera.
I could use Camera Standard - it produces more accurate color, but, as for me, Adobe's one has visually better local contrast.
