Is it possible to manually apply a lens correction that isn't default in lightroom?

I was shooting with a DJI Inspire 1 and a Lumix 25mm F/1.7 which is not an officially approved lens for the drone. Therefore, the lens isn't recognized when I import it into Lightroom so that the lens profile doesn't show up. There is some noticeable distortion that I would like to get rid of and I am not that great at doing it manually but it isn't the end of the world.

Lightroom will only match lens profiles and cameras that are supposed to be matched. In other words, it won't match, for instance, Canon lenses with Nikon cameras and vice versa. So I don't believe it will match your lens/camera combination the way you are wanting it to do it.

Ok, thank you. I just didn't know if there was manual input for lenses or not.

You can manually select a lens in the interface in the lens corrections section. The lenses can be any including ones that there is no way to even put them on your camera but I do not see any Lumix lenses in the list so this would probably not help you. Adobe used to make an app available (lens profile creator) to create lens profiles for your specific camera/lens combo with simple calibration charts you can print yourself but the app stopped working some time ago.

Thank you, technically it is a Panasonic Lumix and I checked the drop-down menu as well and didn't see it. I ended up going into Photoshop and doing a manual +3 on the lens distortion filter and looks good enough.
