Pentax K-5 Raw Camera Profile

Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

LightZombie member AdrianP has provided a Raw Tone Curve for the Pentax K-5. Adrian writes,

I think it probably pulls the highlights up (way) too far but it makes quite a pleasing image of, for example, the studio shot at DPreview and a couple of test shots. See what you think.

You can download the K-5 Raw Tone Curve from here.

Thanks for the donation, Adrian.

A bit more help please!

It is great to see The Zombie alive :)
Could you please tell me how can I incorporate the specified code into my LZ (running under virtual WinXP)?


There have been a lot of questions about how to use these files, so I've now created instruction pages for how to download files and update your LightZone installation. You'll find them on the top of the left column. Or for Windows, click here.

Thanks :)

Simply great service.
Thank you all for the efforts you spend...
UPDATE : I have now updated both the dcraw.exe file and the profile for my (hitherto unsupported) Pentax K5 camera, following your directions. Works like charm :))
I am grateful!
