Lightroom 3.3rc DP1x support.. updated

Lightroom 3.3 release candidate can be downloaded from Adobe Labs page and supports the DP1x but they suffer from the same bad colors as Sigma Photo Pro 3.3 – strangely enough, it’s ONLY images with colors that reaches a very high amount of light and mostly affects yellowish tones

See the difference between Lightroom 3.3 release candidate and SPP 4.2

Update: I just found another good example of when above is not true. :)
LR 3.3rc vs SPP 4.2 - DP1x shot 2
LR 3.3rc vs SPP 4.2, and I had to change SPP to neutral color mode to get similar highlights. Also I had to saturate the SPP picture quite a lot to match LR’s version some. It looked pretty pale in comparison but perhaps more real? Full size.

Let’s hope Adobe continues to work with the DP1x support and – well, same with Sigma. :)

    I hope Adobe fixes the problem. So it still looks like exporting tifs from SPP and adjusting in LightRoom is still the best way to go?

    What will we do when the SD1 is ready? Hahahaha

  2. Hi Isiah, well, I must say that I’m pretty puzzled about the Dp1x raw files. I almost have a feeling that SOME (very few) images has been written to the card with a couple of 01001011 missing – the translation can’t be done correctly LR, but SPP takes those mistakes into account and the image is correctly calculated..

    My guess is that it’s a firmware issue. :)

    When the SD1 is ready, then we all go out and take beautiful pictures like we always done! :D

    “Photo by Linn Rytterfalk” that brought a smile to my face :)

  4. Hi Carl and Linn,

    you should try RawPhotoProzessor although you have at first to
    convert your x3f-files to dng (and all the work will done by adobe
    as Carl said :-))!
    I got more natural colors and better shaddows and lights with my
    SD14 and DP2-Files using RPP.

    Greetings from Germany – Jürgen.

  5. Jürgen Krüger, Downloading! :)

  6. Jürgen, I had it installed since long time, just didn’t remember. :) Anyways, here’s two shots developed using the RCC engine and it’s way to much work to really be a useful software! I think result is on levels with Raw Developer but Raw Developer being so much easier to work with and more control over sharpness and other attributes.

    Please show me your best developments. Would be fun to see.


    Adding these plus a few others in a raw pack now.

    Hi Carl,

    I took Your pictures, converted them to DNG and processed them with
    RPP. I made also a little description of my work as a pdf-file.
    I’ll add the results as JPEG’s to this replay, the 16bit-TIFF’s are
    to fat I guess.

    Kind Regards – Jürgen
    Ups – the pdf was rejected, perhaps it is tooo big – sorry!

  8. Hi Carl,

    I’ve send the PDF by eMail.

    Regards – Jürgen

    Hi Carl,

    today I made a second version of developing your pictures from the dp1-Raw-pack with RPP. Now I’m using whitebracket “As Shot” and got a little bit warmer colours. For details look into the new PDF by email to you. I think now you’ll have an impression what one can do with RPP. I will this finish now with uploading the 4 new generated JPEG’s

    Have a good time – Jürgen.

  10. Hi Jürgen. Those are HUGE! :D Thanks – I wonder if maybe your monitor isn’t calibrated? Because they look washed out on my side. I’m pretty sure that you see something else. Do you find my images generally to dark on your side? (that would suggest that one of us has a too bright setting). Especially the last done.

  11. Compare to my version..

  12. Jürgen Krüger says:

    Hi Carl,

    1st: my monitor is calibrated in order to get good results with my lab (it’s – an they are good for me.

    2nd: yes – your picture with the guy in front of the house seems a little bit to dark for me, especially the shaddow in the doorframe. The colour of the “falufärg” varies in dependence of age, I think yours has to much saturation in respect to the orginal (but I do not know the original, but I’ve seen many).

    3rd: I like the more smooth colour (like watercolour paintings) not the plakative ones.

    4th: I forgot to switch off a parameter of RPP to reducing the contrast to give some swing for the further workflow (in my case with Apple Aperture)

    5th: I complete the workflow with Aperture and export the final JPEG’s, so they should be a little better than the previous (second) ones (but keep in mind: I like natural colours, the most digital camera’s tends to oversaruration)

    6th: I will add some information to the PDF of my Workflow and send it to you by email.

    last: X-mas will come for me if I hold the SD1 in my hands :-)

    Kind Regards – Jürgen
