Working with an unlisted lens profile



  • Getupah


    Could you please add a lens-profile for my Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD lens (Canon mount)?

    It received:

    - an EISA Award for Photo Innovation of the year 2017-2018

    - a TIPA World Awards for best DSLR superzoom lens in 2018

    Therefore it should definitely be supported by Capture One Pro.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yours sincerely,

  • William Rounds


    Could you please add a lens profile for my F mount Nikkor 28MM f/1.4E lens?  This is my most used lens and it would definitely be appreciated.

  • Mike Nelson Pedde

    What I would really appreciate is the ability to apply ANY lens correction to a rendered image - jpg or tif. If I want to process an image made with my cell phone for example, even manual lens corrections are grayed out and inaccessible.Back when I used Lr I had that option.

    Also, Adobe offers (offered?) the ability to create and use one's own lens profiles and to share them with others. That could also be of benefit to some users, especially with older, manual lenses. For example, a friend of ours shoots a lot of macro work with old enlarger lenses. But this would be useful for old Minolta, Pentax, Hasselblad, Nikon... lenses.

    Any shot made with Voigtlander Apo-Lanthar 35mm f2 Aspherical lens on Sony a7riv, Capture One recognizes as Loxia 35mm and that goes also for Voigtlander Apo-Lanthar 50mm f2 Aspherical which gets recognizes as Loxia 50mm. So, I applied to the Customer support with no positive outcome (not to say receiving bureaucratic and absurd responses). The problem is not solely that it recognizes as a different lens, but also as you export the image in the EXIF it registers as the other lens (mentioned above). No other software except Capture One does this!!!!


    Miło będzie zobaczyć korekcję obiektywów Dronów.  Parrot Anafi czy DJI MIni 2,  DJI Mavic 2 Pro. Wielu  fotografów wykorzystuje drony do fotografii. Niestety wady obiektywów z nich  nie są korygowane w takim stopniu jak np w Lightroom. Wrzucam zdjęcie z  Parrota Anafi do Lightroom i mam tam odpowiedni profil, który idealnie prostuje  zakrzywienia. Dla mnie tylko tego obecnie brakuje gdyz wychodzi nowy C 1 22 wiec będzie mam nadzieję tam wszystko. I mam nadzieję ,że takie profile do dronów tez się tam znajdą.

    I currently use Capture One 20 Perpetual License. I have Canon EF-S 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 IS STM that used with Canon 7D Mark ii.

    I already registered the lens correction profile on my camera (provided by Canon) and always shoot using RAW format ("CR2" file extention) with lens correction enabled, but seems Capture One 20 unable to read the lens profile that embedded in ".CR2" RAW format file since nothing happened when I chose "Manufacturer" lens profile correction.

    If there any solution for this problem other than manually correct it by using "Generic", please let me know.

  • Stefano Azario

    When capture one support writes "If your lens is not listed, does not have a Manufacturer Profile option, or if it's in the wrong mount and the aforementioned option isn't available, feel free to post the lens request in this thread. " 

    Does the mentioned thread no longer exist?



    Hi there! Thank you for this great article.

    It would be really great if you could add a lens profile for:

    Canon RF 16mm F2.8

    I have CP1 22. I'm in search of a profile for a Tamron 70-180 2.8 Sony mount.

    I was wondering if this lens profile is available or if it's coming or if there is a way to get it from Tamron.

    Thank you

    Nikon Z lenses, especially the phenomenal industry class standard Z 70-200 f2.8, and the most versatile and probably  sharpest ever Z 24-120 f4 are not supported. The result is, when opening a RAW, you will get an ugly vignetting. This is independent from the camera used (Z9 or Z6II) And you need to set that vignette back manually on all images in one step.
    Is there a way to make this automatic, can I write a lens profile myself?

  • Stefano Azario

    PLEASE PRIORITIZE a profile for LEICA Q2 MONOCROM !! it’s been out a long time, The Q2 is a popular camera and capture does have a partnership would Leica after all.

  • Mike Nelson Pedde

    Laslo: Since there's no lens profile for the lens(es) you're describing, I'm assuming you're using the Vignetting tool (and not the Light Falloff tool) If you're making the same correction to every image shot with that lens you can simply create a custom preset, select all of the images made with that lens and apply the preset to all of them (make sure Edit Selected is turned on). If you're only importing images made with that lens, you can apply that preset on import.


  • Laszlo Bekesi

    Hi Mike,
    I tried the light Fall off setting in the Lens Profile tool… yesterday
    I made the edits on a new set of pictures.
    It dis not work out well… I had problems as in the final exports there was a white-ish vignette on most of the pictures, especially with wider zoom images (on both lenses I used: 24-120Z and 70-200Z).
    This was not visible on the edit screens.
    So I am puzzled now and I think it is better not to touch these light fall-off sliders and just leave the manufacturer’s profile as it is by default…
    So finally as a summary it seems that the pictures under editing do not perfectly utilize the manufacturer’s lens profile embedded into the Raw files, but finally at export they are used.
    But now I really don’t know.

    Please consider adding support for

    Tamron SP VC USD 85mm 1.8 (Nikon F)
    DJI Mavic 3 (both lenses)
    DJI Mini 3 Pro

    Manufacturer profiles of the DJI drone cameras are worthless, light falloff is terrible and there is a strong color cast (towards green). Drone photography is huge, please consider expanding support to these sytsems.

    I find it difficult to understand why we can’t add our own custom profiles? This should be possible given the slow pace and pretty incomplete list of lens profiles baked in C1.

  • Jonas Bengtsson

    I find it difficult to understand why we can’t add our own custom profiles? 

    I using a Sony/Minolta AF Reflex 500 mm E=mount, Sony A7c FF.  
    Actually a favorit lens. Doing some panorama with CO stittching tool. 
    It has a light fall of that needs to be corrected.
    Please, make it possible to save own profiles. 

  • Michael Khalsa

    Greatly appreciate it if you could add the following Sigma Art Lens profiles (preferably e-mount)

    Sigma 28mm F1.4 DG HSM Art  (e-mount)

    Sigma 40mm F1.4 DG HSM Art (e-mount)

    Sigma 70mm F 2.8 DG DN Macro Art (e-mount)

    The first two get very high reviews from many people as belonging to the pinnacle of Sigma art lenses. While the 40mm is extremely well corrected, the 28mm profile can probably benefit from Capture One's magic. Both of these lenses would typically be used by professionals (and weight lifters).

    The 70mm macro is not the same as the older A-mount version (different optics), and quite popular.

    Thank you for including the Sigma 45mm f2.8 lenses, which has wonderful rendering, and one of the jewels in the lineup.

    Since Tamron has so many great lens in terms of quality and performance for different mounts. Please add the profile and your support for SP 45mm F/1.8 Di VC USD EF Mount.

    Chromatic aberration and light fall-off are two of its most critical issues that need to be fixed.

  • George VDOKAKIS

    As far as I know canon RF 100mm F2.8  macro is a very popular lens. It would be very helpful if it was on the list.

  • Gayane Bet

    Dear CaptureOne Family!  TAMRON 28-75 G2  is a very popular lens. Ad on the list please((((.

  • FirstName LastName

    I would greatly appreciate the option to apply ANY lens correction to a rendered image, whether in jpg or tif format. When working with images taken from my cell phone, even manual lens corrections are unavailable as they appear grayed out and inaccessible. In the past, when I used Lr (Lightroom), I had the privilege of accessing such features.

    Furthermore, I recall that Adobe offered the capability to create and utilize custom lens profiles, with the added benefit of sharing them with other websites. This feature could prove especially valuable for users who use older, manual lenses, like our friend, who often uses old enlarger lenses in macro photography. Additionally, this functionality would be helpful for users with lenses from various manufacturers such as Minolta, Pentax, Hasselblad, Nikon, and more.

  • Albert Lew

    Please create lens profiles for all the Sigma contemporary lenses for e-mount, including 24i, 35i, 65i, and 95i.



  • Guido Engels

    I have been using the Tamron F2.0-2.8/35-150mm Di III VXD lens for over a year. It has been one of my most used lenses on the Sony A9 + A7r5. Unfortunately, I've been waiting for a lens profile in Capture One. May I hope that this will be implemented in the near future? With kind regards

    It's frustrating to hear about the issue you're facing with Capture One recognizing your Voigtlander Apo-Lanthar lenses as Loxia lenses. It's even more concerning that the customer support experience hasn't been positive, with bureaucratic and absurd responses. This not only affects the in-app recognition but also impacts the EXIF data upon export, which is certainly inconvenient. It's puzzling that this problem seems unique to Capture One, as you mentioned. Hopefully, they can address this lens recognition problem promptly and provide a more satisfactory resolution.

  • Demetri Dourambeis

    I agree, it is frustrating and poor support. However, the Manufacturer's Profile appears to work OK. And checking to see what the profile is doing regarding distortion can be seen by using the Crop tool and toggling the 'Hide Distorted Areas' check box in the Lens Correction tab.

    In the later updates of Capture One, they have been kind enough to inlude a Leica Q3 profile which concerningly renders the image ever so slightlyy differently but you do get the added functionality of being able to adjust Sharpness and Light Falloff which is unavailable on the Manufacturers Profile.

    This may all sound a bit arrogant on Leica's part but when you are spending that amount of £$€'s on a camera, you should really have to be adjusting anything anyway!
