I just started shooting with a DJI Mini 2, which can do RAW.  However, when I import into LR using my normal preset, it says 'profile missing' under the calibration section.  If I go to the dropdown, I can select 'color', but the adobe color profile (and others) are nowhere to be found.  They are there when I import RAWs from my other cameras.  BTW, this image from the DJI is a DNG.  Not sure if that has something to do with it?

P.S.  Maybe the camera for the Mini 2 isn't supported yet?

The attached link shows Adobe's RAW file supported cameras. I do not see the DJI listed, but keep in mind this is routinely updated.

While https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/kb/camera-raw-plug-supported-cameras.htmldoes not list any DJI , it may be that DJI used another companies camera, Hasabald comes to mind.

 

Any literature on that?

 

If you look at a photos metadata, what camera id listed?

When I look at the import options for the DJI, it shows FC7303 as the camera model.

I downloaded a sample DJI Mavic Mini 2 DNG from dpreview.com and don't observe that behavior. Upload a problem DNG to Dropbox or similar and post the sharing link here, and we can see if this issue happens on other LR installations and perhaps identify the problem.

That threw me for a loop, but a little googling educated me: Adobe doesn't make "Adobe XXX" profiles for DJI cameras, so LR and Camera Raw use the profile that DJI embeds in the DNG (that's the "Color" profile). See the long discussion in this thread:

https://www.lightroomqueen.com/community/threads/dng-still-image-not-treated-as-a-raw-file.34879/ 

 

And in case other readers are wondering, this DNG really does contain raw data, not RGB data, as confirmed by the Metadata > DNG tagset:

Evidently you got the "Profile missing" error because you applied a preset on import that tried to apply the Adobe Standard profile (or a profile based on Adobe Standard, such as Adobe Color or Adobe Landscape).

Ah, that explains it!  Thanks for that info.  I do have my import preset configured to default to Adobe Color.  So I guess I am just stuck using the "color" profile.  That's a shame because I do like Adobe Color, but I guess it is what it is.
