Lightroom 6.1 or Camera Raw 9.1 Bug for D810 shooters

20 June 2015 - 06:49 AM

For my fellow Nikon D810 shooters who recently updated their Lightroom and/or Camera Raw apps, you may be noticing that your images appear a bit flat upon import. That is because Lightroom 6.1 and Camera Raw 9.1 ignore the Adobe Standard Color Profile from Nikon D810 raw images. Instead, they default to the next available profile in the Camera Profile pop-up menu which is Camera Flat, so your images display with unexpected color. 


Good news though ... below is the workaround until it's fixed. I just did this on my Mac, and after restarting LR, all is well. In addition, when I import new images into my LR library, they default to the Adobe Standard Color Profile. Nice.



Northern Channel Islands - Peace (3-day)

24 March 2015 - 10:41 AM

We (Immersed Imaging) have chartered the Peace dive boat out of Ventura, California, for a 3-day trip to San Miguel Island (just 6 spots remaining). The trip is August 27-29, 2015, and we will board the boat the evening of 8/26.

This will be an underwater imaging-centric group, and we are limiting the number of passengers to just 20. The boat can carry 32 passengers and has 24 bunks, so not only will we have plenty of elbow room, we’ll also have at least 4 bunks open for extra storage, etc. 

The service and support on the Peace are exceptional, and this trip promises to be no different. The 3-day limited-load charter is $650.00 per person, and includes the following:

  • 3 days of awesome diving (at least 3-4 dives per day)
  • Air fills (nitrox is available for $75 for unlimited fills)
  • Meals and snacks (which are outstanding)
  • Non-alcoholic beverages (BYOB)

For more information, and to sign-up, please click below. We hope to see you there!
