P: Disabling automatic lens correction profiles for photogrammetry (DJI)

Hi There,

 

I would like to request a function for Adobe Lightroom Classic & camera RAW:

 

Option for disabling / ignoring built in camera profiles particularly for DJI drones completly.

 

I use Adobe Lightroom for developing camera RAW images (including from DJI drones from mavic Mini to Zenmuse P1 sensors) for my work processing the images into 3D models with the use of photogrammetry. 

 

I have realised that with some cameras (e.g. from DJI drones) the software always applies a default lens correction profile despite this function is unticked in the editing panel.

As any software induced manipulation related to the geometric properties of the lens is highly undesired (it is introduces error / lessens overlap etc.) I would like to have an option for all lens corrections be enabled or ignored.

 

Strangly there is option with most other RAW delepers (RAW Thrapee, CaptureOne pro etc.) only Lightroom in forcing this on us.

 

I do understand that in most cases its a convenient and usefull function but for photogrammetry this is very detrimental and I hope this can be amended soon.

 

Kind Regards

I assume that you are referring to this:

That Built-in Lens profile issue involves both Adobe and the Camera or Sensor Mfg. You will need to put in a request for change with DJI. May uses of various cameras have not been very pleased with this, And it appears that sending requests for change to both Adobe and the Camera Mfg has resulted in some change for at least newer cameras. My Fuji X-T5 for example as opposed to an older X-T3. No, I have no proof of anyone complaining to Fuji, But I do see that change is possible.

 

Unfortunately their does not appear to be any retroactive changes by Adobe on this, just changes for new cameras. And it sounds like Adobe has drawn a line in the sand on retroactive.

 

Also, see:

Incidentally, much of what you stated about checked/unchecked is mentioned in the above link. It is very informative.

Adobe allows the lens profiles embedded in raws to be disabled only if the camera manufacturer provides Adobe with permission to do so. Presumably the other apps don't care about getting permission from the manufacturer since they don't have contractual business arrangements with them as Adobe does.  So you should complain to DJI as well as Adobe.

 

For most cameras, you can disable the embedded lens profile by converting the photo to DNG using the free Adobe DNG converter and then using Exiftool to delete the profile from the DNG.  See here for details:
