The Camera Calibration Panel in the Develop Module is missing. My Lightroom CC is up to date. I have been using Lightroom for about ten years and have never seen this panel. I wouldn't know it's supposed to be there if I hadn't just read an article about it. I'm a Mac user. Does anyone know why this panel is missing and what I can do to get it?

With Lightroom open and in the develop module go to Window >panels and click on camera calibration. Or, right-click on one of the panel headings in the right-hand column and make sure there's a checkmark for camera calibration.

It's incredible easy. So easy in fact that's exactly what I did but OMG there is no Camera Calibration under Window -> Panels.  I have Histogram, Basic, Tone Curve, HSL/Color, Color Grading, Detail, Lens Correction, Transform, Effects and Calibration. I see a profile browser but not cameras.

Profile was formerly selected in the Camera Calibration tab but more recently is selected at the top of Basic panel.

 

Camera specific "matching" profiles tend to be for Raw, and you will not see the same options in the case of a JPG or TIFF image (for example). There are various kinds of profile now, including ones that are not strictly Calibration profiles but rather, more like effects - such as LUT based profiles. Also depending on what camera took a given Raw there will be a different list of available camera-specific profiles to choose from. Not every supported camera offers camera-matching equivalents for every colour mode choice selectable in the camera. There may be none such offered, or not in the initial support of a given new camera model. And certainly there will be none such when LrC has imported a DNG converted Raw from an unsupported camera, which it is interpreting via generic DNG support only.

Not quite sure what you are referring to when you mention cameras. There isn't one. Lightroom recognizes the camera you are using and provides any profiles available for that specific camera. There isn't a provision to choose different cameras. The calibration panel is provided in case you want to customize how Lightroom interprets the red, green and blue from  the sensor from the camera you are using. What are you referring to when you are looking for cameras?
