What happened to the Nikon Z6 Camera Matching Profiles?

Since the last update, most of the Nikon Z6 camera matching profiles have disappeared from LR. It used to have the full set found on the Z6 camera, but now has only 11. Is this an issue with my LR install or has Adobe removed the profiles?

 

Thanks

With the update to Lightroom Classic 9.2 Adobe has made introduced new procedures for creating Default Develop settings for individual camera models. You can see info about this in the Top post in this forum. The link below also provides additional details on how to proceed with the process.

Thanks, but the article you linked to is about the new behaviour of default import presets for cameras.

 

I asked why over half of the "camera matching" profiles in the Develop Profile Browser have disappeared for the Nikon Z6. 

 

Prior to the last update, the list you can see below was a lot longer. Is this a configuration hiccup on my Lightroom install, or have Adobe removed a large swathe of profiles for the Nikon Z?

I imported a sample Z 6 from dpreview.com into LR 8.2.1, and it shows the same 11 Camera Matching profiles as for my LR 9.2:

So I think your current LR installation is fine. Without seeing a screenshot of what you were seeing before, it's hard to know why you saw an abnormally large number of Camera Matching profiles.

Not a holder of a Z6, so downloaded a sample. Brought it into Develop, and the following screenshopt shows 11 Camera Matching Profiles.

Now looking online,  (  source ) I see that the Nikon Z6 comes with Picture Controls, the normal ones being: Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, Landscape and Flat. And those are included (with 5 Monochromes)

 

Did the Camera Matching profiles in previous version of LRC include the " Gimmick Picture Controls" (Creative Picture Controls), those being:Dream, Morning, Pop, Sunday, Somber, Dramatic, Silence, Bleached, Melancholic, Pure, Denim, Toy, Sepia, Blue, Red, Pink, Charcoal, Graphite, Binary and Carbon????

 

" Gimmick Picture Controls", not my words, that is from the source I listed above

 

Follwup/ I see in the online manual, Nikon calls those Creative Picture Controls.

Thanks David for doing the research. Yep, before the last update I did have the "gimmick" (harsh!)picture controls available, two of which I found useful.

 

I'm just curious as to why Adobe dropped them.

 

Hmmm.... well I suppose I'll just have to desaturate and lower the contrast the old fashioned way.

"I'm just curious as to why Adobe dropped them."

 

It appears to be an unintentional bug. Those "picture control" profiles are available for the Z 7 in LR 9.2, and the .xmp files defining them for the Z 6 are present in LR 9.2, e.g. on Mac:

 

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/Settings/Adobe/Profiles/Camera/Nikon/Nikon Z 6/Nikon Z 6 Camera Melancholic.xmp

 

But LR 9.2 isn't reading them for some reason, though LR 9.1 did.

 

I recommend you post a bug report in the official Adobe feedback forum, where Adobe wants all bug reports and feature suggestions: 

https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/categories/photoshop_family_photoshop_lightroom

 

Be sure to include the first ten lines of the menu command Help > System Info.  Provide all the details, rather than linking back to this thread -- experience shows that Adobe developers tend not follow the links.

Just a note to express my gratitude for the researched responses I received for this post. Thank you.

I'll wait to see what Adobe do with the support request.
