Expand Dynamic Range and Deepen Color of M43 RAW Files.
Camera RAW Profiles and Presets for Micro 4/3 Cameras.
Available Friday, June 21st are four core Adobe Camera RAW profiles explicitly designed to maximize color and dynamic range of Micro 4/3 sensors. Color Profiles for Camera RAW get closer to the light-data captured from the camera's sensor than a preset, thus allowing for more dynamic range and deeper color. When used right, the results are files that have both vibrant color and dynamic range not possible with presets alone and magnitudes more than what in-camera jpegs allow.
The core profiles that Giulio developed over the past several months breathes new life for older cameras in the Micro 4/3 lineup and expands the capabilities of the latest bodies by Panasonic and Olympus.
Giulio Sciorio began his career in color in the late '90s when he was a colorist for Fox Animation. Since then, he's honed his gift for seeing color into his post-production workflow for commercial clients and now is finishing the development of profiles and tutorials to be offered for sale December 17th. These profiles are currently compatible with Adobe Lightroom CC, Classic and Camera Raw for Mac, PC, and Mobile.
Core Technology: Dynamax
The most prominent challenge photographers face when using Micro 4/3rds cameras is capturing a wide dynamic range in their images. All too often, you have to decide if you want to keep highlights at the expense of shadow noise or clip the highlights and capture clean shadows.
The Dynamax for Micro 4/3 expands the dynamic range by approximately 1 stop in the highlights and 1 stop in the shadows. This gives photographers freedom to capture in high contrast lighting like never before. Dynamax is at the core technology of all profiles developed.
Expands Dynamic Range. Neutral Color and Tonal Response.
Dynamax is the perfect foundation if your work is post-production heavy, potentially fix over/underexposed shots or build your own custom presets to suit your vision. Designed specifically to maximize dynamic range and color response of Micro 4/3rds sensors.
Bold Color. Vivid Details. Smooth Grain.
Panachrome BC is a color look with excellent color quality, sharpness, and fine grain. Recommended for bright light situations where you want to emphasize deep, rich colors.
Rich color. Smooth Grain. Detailed Shadows
The deep, vibrant blues and fine grain of O-Neg BC but with extended dynamic range in the shadows. O-Neg Super is perfect on bright, contrasty days when you want to bring attention to blue skies while preserving details in the shadows of the scene.
Honest expression. Even tonality. Classic
This classic black-and-white look allows for maximum flexibility. Push the tones around when you need it, leave it alone when you want maximum dynamic range. Suitable for even the most challenging lighting situations, Micropan renders a level of realism that only a classic black-and-white photograph can.
