    Posted: 24 October 2012 at 21:27
I just loaded this afternoon's photoshoot into Lightroom 4.2 and went to make a custom colour profile (from a pic with my colourchecker passport).

To my amazement, when I went to select it in the camera calibration part of the develop module, I have just discovered a multitude of other colour profiles. Camera Standard, Camera Deep, Camera Vivid, Camera Landscape etc, just like the creative styles for in-cam Jpgs.

Finally! Is this the first Sony camera to receive the 'canikon treatment' in Lightroom. I've always loved the sony Standard colours but struggled to reproduce them in Lightroom from raw. Now adobe have done the job for us! I shot with RAW+JPG, Standard, +1 contrast and comparing the camera jpg to the raw with 'camera standard' selected is quite a close match. Much closer than the Adobe Standard profile.

You damn Brits and your A99's! WAAAH I want one!

No, I have nothing to contribute. I can't even LOOK at my A77 right now. Piddly little tiny sensor thing!

Imagine how I feel with my childlike a33. Sigh. . . If only I was a real boy.
Hahah
Jk I love my Lil wonder but the a99 is giving me goosebumps.
And possibly the shake.

My 24-70 Sony will be here Friday. Have the 24mm F/2 Zeiss as well, and the Sigma OS 70-200. And a Sony 50mm F/1.4, and you're not supposed to start a sentence with "and" AND I don't care.

I've called places, did online chats with Crutchfield advisers, refreshed ebay, and still cannot find a retail USA model to buy. Thought about the Canadians, eh, but doubtful it'd get here by Halloween.

My dream is to shoot my kids' video and stills for Halloween with the '99!

O relax, today's shiny new battleship is tomorrows Dreadnought. Take solace in the fact that the A77 is still an outstanding and cutting edge camera - at least for the next 5 minutes until its replacement next year.

Poor ol me still has to use an A300 Dreadnought, but at least it's not a pre-Dreadnought (some kind of Minolta - not that they are bad, just technologically challenged in comparison to today's stuff) :)

I should be taking delivery of the newest class of hardware in the next week or so - perhaps as early as tomorrow.

First a-mount camera. Adobe provided additional profiles for nex cameras as well AFAIK (even Sony NEX-VG20 :)) and RX100.

I gotta hand it to ya - you used the word "Dreadnought" 3 times in that reply and I still don't know what it means. Context clues aside.

that feature is now also available for the NEX 7 in Lr 4.2 i noticed.

it can be a handy feature, especially when starting out with a new camera and/or Lr, but as any other preset supplied, after some time it will not be exactly what you want and you will start making your own presets, maybe based on those already offered.

in the end you will be better of getting a good working knowledge of all the sliders available so you can dial in the values you want yourself. but, i agree, it makes starting out and getting a feel what different settings can accomplish quite a bit easier.

Dreadnought refers to the quick decline of the first modern battleships, the very archetype of steam punk type machines. It was cutting edge at one point, cost an exorbitant amount and was quickly superseded by the subsequent generations. To sum, refers to something long defunct.

So a little bit of hyperbole eh? The A300 still takes digital pics, right?

I just ordered an A99. Call me...Ishmael!

OK....Ishmael it is and hyperbole it was. Sure the example used is a great exaggeration in relation to the gulf between the A300 and the A99. But I used it to make the point in a convivial way. A hundred years ago, things could more or less stay current for 20 years or more. These days, consider yourself lucky if something stays current for 18 months. So yep, the A300 is indeed a DSLR.

I was pleasantly surprised by these profiles as well. And they all work very nicely.

Just out of interest, I just discovered the Nex 5n also has a few extra colour profiles for .arw files in LR4.2. Amazing!
