D800E lens correction profiles for Photoshop CS5
« on: March 05, 2014, 02:58:05 PM »

Hi all,

I was wondering if it was possible to get the D800e lens profiles to work in CS5?

Thank you,

Can't think of any reason why it should not work.  Have you tried; and what problems did you encounter?

The D800 and 800E both supported in the last ACR version 6.7 for CS5, so if it is a specific lens that is missing then check out which ACR version required Here

Tony,
Thank you kindly for taking the time to reply.
In the dialogue box for the lens correction filter in CS 5, neither in the drop down menu for camera model or when clicking 'search online' does the D800/e come up... oddly enough the D4 does come up.

Mouse, thanks kindly for the reply. See the note I gave to Tony. BTW Tony, I checked on that link and it says that only Photoshop version 13 supports this lens.
The problem is, I shot the pics and edited them in C1Pro 7 as I needed to use the LCC function to properly capture the photos and that software doesn't have the correction profile for this lens, so I wanted to do the correction on a PSD file in my version of CS5.

Thanks for the help, it's much appreciated!

Hi Steve,

Since most distortion correction methods are implemented as a post processing step anyway, have you considered a cheap solution such as PTLens ?

With a bit more work you can also use Hugin to create a tailor made distortion and photometric correction profile that can be applied to individual images. And you'll get a powerful Pano stitcher as well.

Cheers,
Bart

Steve, my bad as I made an assumption that you would be correcting via ACR in Photoshop.  AFAIK the lens correction filter in PS (CS5 and CS6) is limited in camera and lens choices, in the case of Nikon cameras to D3, D300s, D3x, D4 and D700 and I do not think it can be updated in any way.

Within CS5 Lens corrections have you considered manual adjustment via the Custom tab?  You can remove distortion, CA, Vignette etc. and save the setting for future use.  Perhaps this may be good enough?

If I recall correctly, any Nikon lens profile created with a full frame sensor camera should work fine with a D800 (since the optics will be the same regardless of the sensor).  THere also are third party profiles people create and upload to Adobe's website that you can download and install to your computer using the Adobe lens profile downloaded applet.  Your best bet is to go to the Adobe lens profile forum for more information.  (However I am not sure if downloaded profiles will show up in the PS lens correctionm  panel; however with a recent enough version of PS you can edit the PS image in ACR, which to my mind has superior controls for lens correction work anyway.)
