P: Firmware update for DJI FC8282 Air 3 breaks Adobe camera profiles

The most recent firmware update 10.08.03.67 for the DJI FC8282 Air3 broke the ability of LR / Camera Raw to recognize its camera as a supported camera, and the Adobe camera profiles are no longer available for the camera's DNGs.

 

The update changed EXIF:UniqueCameraModel from "DJI FC8282 Air3" to "DJI FC8282". But "DJI FC8282 Air3 Adobe Standard.dcp" is defined on the former camera-model name and doesn't recognize the new one.

 

You can download two sample DNGs from here:

https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/is3vqeiyatkfe0m73or87/not_works_DJI_20240101111934_0001_D.DNG?rlkey=o...

https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/4e3dgl8p5s66a9lk3lv4l/works_DJI_20231210105602_0005_D.DNG?rlkey=22xdl... 

 

When you import them into LR 13.1, observe that the Adobe camera profiles are available for the "works" DNG but not the "not_works" DNG. Here is the relevant output from Exiftool:

 

 

======== not_works_DJI_20240101111934_0001_D.DNG
[EXIF]          Software                        : 10.08.03.67
[EXIF]          Unique Camera Model             : DJI FC8282
======== works_DJI_20231210105602_0005_D.DNG
[EXIF]          Software                        : 10.07.01.04
[EXIF]          Unique Camera Model             : DJI FC8282 Air3

 

 

 

Here are the relevant contents of the .dcp showing it doesn't contain the new camera-model name "DJI FC8282":

 

$ strings -8 DJI\ FC8282\ Air3\ Adobe\ Standard.dcp | sort -u
?@0<>_AV?
?Copyright 2023 Adobe Systems, Inc.
?N_t?`Sv?
Adobe Standard
DJI FC8282 Air3
com.adobe

 

 

Three possible workarounds while Adobe and/or DJI sort this out:

 

1. Use Exiftool to change the camera-model name stored in the new-firmware DNGs:

 

exiftool -F -m -uniquecameramodel="DJI FC8282 Air3" not_works_DJI_20240101111934_0001_D.DNG 

 

 

For files already imported in your LR catalog, you'll have to remove them from the catalog, run Exiftool, and then reimport them. I verified that this makes the Adobe camera profiles available, but there's a potential gotch. The -F file is needed because, at least in the sample DNGs provided, the offsets of fields in the MakerNotes are corrupted, possibly due to DJI bugs. Exiftool tries to fix the offsets, and the fix appears to work, but I haven't done any real testing to try to verify.

 

2. Roll back to the previous version of the firmware using DJI Assistant 2. I saw some DJI forum posts that sometimes this is allowed, sometimes not, depending on the particular version currently installed. I have no idea if this works or what its consequences might be.

 

3. Use the DNG Profile Editor to change the camera-model name in "DJI FC8282 Air3 Adobe Standard.dcp". I don't know if this is possible, since I can't run the DNG Profile Editor on my Macbook Pro -- the Mac version is currently broken on Mac OS 14, and the Windows installer won't install on ARM Windows, even though the x64 emulation is available.

Thanks for getting me into the correct direction. I was able to edit the original dcp files and replaced the name with the new one. 

Just drop the new files into the same folder and it should work again!

@default49e92pvs7f00: "Still not working for DJI Mini 4 Pro. Imported DNG files still use Color and not Adobe Color "

 

This bug report was about another camera. I recommend that you start a new bug report and include a sample DNG from the Mini 4 Pro. Upload it to Dropbox, Google Drive, or similar and include the sharing link in your post.

 

Assuming the problem with the Mini 4 Pro is similar to that of Air 3 (a DJI firmware update changing the metadata field EXIF:UniqueCameraModel and thus breaking the existing Camera Raw profile), if you're on Windows, you can use workaround 3 described in the top post to make a version of Adobe Standard (on which Adobe Color is based) that recognizes the new camera model. If you're on Mac, I can provide another tool that will let you do that.
