Color profile distortion with Nikon Z6

Camera: Nikon Z6

Lens: Nikon Z 20mm f/1.8 & 35mm f/1.8

 

I import my photos from camera to Lightroom. When viewed from within the Library, the pictures look exactly how it appears in the camera LCD screen. 

 

As soon as I enter into Develop mode, I notice a distinct change in the color of the photos. This is without me making any changes at all! Specifically, as soon as I enter develop mode, the photo quickly transitions (~2 seconds) from what it was to a new profile, which is quite disappointing to say the least. I tried changing the color profiles to say Adobe Landscape. But the picture is still impacted greatly. 

 

Most affected areas are the sky. The natural sky blue turns into teal and the picture overall burns (as in, it tends to get darker).

 

I notice that basic settings such as exposure, texture, clarity, are almost always affected, but even when I bring them back to 0, the picture still looks very different from what I see on the camera. 

 

Could you please advise on what could be going wrong?

So you should see a change from the camera generated JPEG to the previews LR produces after import. 

Are you saying that after this, you see a big difference just going from Library to Develop? Now Develop is the module to most accurately view raw data (the other modules use a different and faster preview architecture) but the differences shouldn't be really huge. If so, first thing to try is disabling the GPU. Better? If not, this could be a display profile issue. Recalibrate and recreate the display profile and try again. 

Keep in mind, the preview you see on the LCD is built by the camera and is a proprietary rendering of the raw. That rendering is also found initially in the raw but again, at some point, LR has to build it's own previews which can differ.

Are you saying that without touching any slider in the Basic Panel, some of those have been already moved?

Yeah the settings are always modified. Attaching a video on how the colors change once I move from Library to Develop mode. 

 

Take a look at Photo 17 around the 28 second mark. Keep an eye out on how the colors in the photo ribbon for photo 17 change as soon as you click into the image.

Please post your System Information as Lightroom Classic (LrC) reports it. In LrC click on Help, then System Info, then Copy. Past that information into a reply. Please present all information from first line down to and including Plug-in Info. Info after Plug-in info can be cut as that is just so much dead space to us non-Techs.

Pre v9.3 v9.2 you could change the Develop Default settings. Sometimes user accomplished this by accident, resulting in what you describe.

 

This link discusses that:

https://lightroomkillertips.com/customize-default-develop-settings/

 

You would want to Rstore Adobe Default Settings.
