Lightroom lens profiles for MFT mounted Fujian and Samyang

MuistoLately, I’ve been playing with Adobe Lens Profile Creator and since there aren’t that much profiles available for Micro Four Thirds cameras, I decided to post my todays efforts here.

First one is a profile for chinese CCTV lens which has a C-mount thread and it’s got some serious distortion and vignetting. I bought my copy from eBay for some $25. I don’t mind the vignetting, but the distortion is sometimes annoying.

Another one is a profile for PK mount Samyang 8mm f3.5 fisheye on E-P1. I don’t know if its any use for other people, since the 8mm lens is REALLY picky about PK adapter thickness, but here’s it anyway:

To install, copy the .lcp file to proper directory:

  • Mac OS X: /Users/(UserName)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0
  • Windows 7: C:\User\(UserName)\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0
  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\(UserName)\Application Data\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0

The profiles are shot on Olympus PEN E-P1, Fujian aperture at f5.6 and Samyang at f8.0. Both had about 2m focus distance to the chart.

PS. In theory, these could be uploaded to Adobe’s Lens Profile Downloader tool, but unfortunately it seems to have some sort of bug with Olympus lenses. If you select “Olympus” from the pulldown menu, nothing is shown. But if you only write e.g. “Olympu” the tool shows profiles correctly.
