Canon EOS 77D Profile, bad contrast, colors etc

Hi guys,

I am a planespotter for more than 15 years now and use Canon cameras to take pictures in RAW. I recently got a EOS 77D and am getting horrible results when importing the pics to LR. I have never seen something like this before.

I had a rather simply EOS 700D before and never had such bad results when importing RAW pics to LR. Now I have a bad contrast and lacking colors on all of my pics, even if taken in good sunny conditions.

I already changed the LR setting to "Camara Standard" but this only helps a tiny little.

The amount of actions needed to get a good result of my pictures is so high, and has never been with the older cameras. I hope there may be others with this camera and problem and maybe there is new profile for LR to handle RAW images of my camera.

I attach two of my recent images as examples. One in bad conditions, one in sunny conditions. Direct LR import with no adjustments made. They never needed so much rework at my older cameras in RAW. Sometimes I even could use the import straight and export it.

I did exactly the same upgrade, from a 700D to a 77D and also the same experience.  I do love the control system of the 77D, but my experience is that the colours are not as good and its spot focusing at distance is appalingly bad.  The 77D needs more post processing work to come close to the 700D colours but after a couple of years of testing, checking and trying different techniques etc I finally sent the 77D off to have it serviced by Canon. 

 

The camera was returned with a rather odd comment from the Technician 'Please note this is the limitation with this camera'.  Whether that was some admission that the focusing was not brilliant or not I don't know and I couldn't find a way to ask anything further by email.

 

I do wonder if the focus system on the 700D was better because it used a 'dot' for spot focusing, whereas the 77D uses a square which is much too big for distant subjects?  Anyway, in summary sadly my experience is that upgrading to the EOS77D has been an expensive 'mistake'.
