Like it, I'm still waiting on Adobe to bring up todate the RAW bits needed to
load into Lightroom :(
I'll have to give this HDR thingy a try, thanks for sharing!

Adobe has posted Photoshop Camera Raw 6.3 and Photoshop Lightroom 3.3 release candidates. The G12 is included :-)

OK, I have now profiled the G12. The colours are now accurate and the images have better punch.....

Nice. Silly question, what exactly do you mean when you say profiled? Color profiling software that examines output of camera against what it is expecting?

Thanks for the kind comments.

As every sensor can produce slightly different colours, even between the same model, it would be almost impossible to cover them all. So generic profiles exist which are general, but not totally accurate. By profiling your individual camera bodies, you can ensure that the colours are more accurate.

My SLR's and compact camera colours are now pretty much identical when viewing them in lightroom.

Another dumb question; How do you Profile an individual camera body?

The only dumb question, is the one that isnt asked.....

Take an image of the colour control patches with each camera. The software will generate a profile for each. In lightroom or ACR, you select the profile to apply to your image(s).

Of course it is subjective. The fact remains though, that the colours in this original file are not accurate. A matter of personal choice of course, but I am often governed by customers who will demand that the 'product' is accurately rendered.

I am sorry sir, I did a Google search after asking. That is a very detailed process. I would need to follow the book instructions very carefully. Pardon me for putting my mouth in motion before my mind in gear! Anyway...

I think your photographs are ... WOW ... or COOL, FAR OUT, from my (degeneration :) generation (18 in 1972) 0f AWESOME.

I was only 14 in 1972 :cool:

Its actually not that complicated to use the hardware/software. Once you have done it once - it easy. I will often profile the camera being used on a shoot to those actual lighting conditions at the time. There isn't much difference from the generic profile that I have produced if the truth be known.

Both versions are good (though the first version is a tad over sharpened for my taste). The G12 produces lovely files which your good eye enhances! :)
