    Hi Michael, 

    We're currently working on its implementation. 

    It will be definitely added in the upcoming updates.

    I really hope this is coming soon, I cannot use Luminar as my main electronic dark room while it doesn't have the built in lens corrections.

    I am sticking with Adobe until Luminar has much closer feature parity with Lightroom:  DAM, auto lens corrections, luminosity and color range masking...etc.    And now in Lr and ACR we can easily use different raw development profiles plus traditional presets.   I will be surprised if there is feature parity with Lr this year.

    This is a required feature for the very next update/version of AURORA if you want it to remain competitive (better actually); ON1, SNS, and others do both HDR stacks and automated correction. I do a lot of batch HDR work with large sets (hundreds), and as far as I'm aware my choices in Aurora 2019 are:

    1) Use the JPEGs from the camera because they're already lens-corrected, but then get halos from the JPEGs; or 

    2) manually slog through hundreds of pics manually correcting the results from the batch. 

    Both kind of make useless different features you worked to add to Aurora (batch and eradicating halos). 

    While you're working on actual lens correction, you would do well to incorporate your own version of Topaz JPEG-to-RAW for processing brackets of JPEGs, I think you might be able to reduce the halos by 50% or better. Right now they're obvious on about 80% of my JPEG sets (I process both JPEGs and RAWs of the same brackets and pick the least-troublesome).

    Hi David! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I will pass them to our developers.

    Anastasia,

    I am confused.   Look at Alina's response from one year ago.

    "We're currently working on its implementation. 

    It will be definitely added in the upcoming updates. "

     

    Was that a true statement or not?   If so, when?    If not, tell us the truth that using raw file lens correction data is not part of any "soon" release.

    @Michael Sorry if my reply confused you. The point of my answer was that I will forward your opinion to our developers so they are aware of it and consider implementing it sooner.

    Hi, Luminar 4 is here.... and the problem still is present.

    Three files from me:

    RAW file by Luminar 3/4 - this is totally different from what I see during taking the photos. The M43 camers correct the lenses on the go in the LiveView

    RAW form Silkypix - free for Panasonic owners, But I use the Pro edition for Panasonic:

    JPEG from G9

     

    There is a bit of wigneting on the last two files - it's ok, because i used a ND filter with a CPL+UV

    Cheers,

    Adam

    Same for me, very disappointing that M43 auto lens corrections still seems to be missing from Luminar 4, probably won't be buying any further versions.

    With respect, Macphun/Skylum has had over 2 years to "look deeper into the issue".  Look at the first message in this thread.  Lens correction info is in a m43 raw file.   Years since the request and not the first indication that auto lens corrections for m43 systems will ever be implemented using the raw file data.

    OK so under canvas you can enable Auto lens corrections, my question now is how can you set this to always enabled?  Because why would you ever want it off?

    Karl, the Auto lens correction in luminar has some specific logic behind it and it's hard to say if the "always on" will always do a good effect on the photo

    If You look at my post in this topic:

    https://community.skylum.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360006524600-Cameras-supported-by-Luminar-4?page=1#community_comment_360000970240

    You will see that the correction isn't correlated with the lens/focal length. I have two pictures with the same lens/focal length and the amount of correction is different.

    In m43 the lens correction is a std. When I'm taking a photo in the EVF/LCD the picture is corrected...When i start to process the RAW it would be nice to see the same picture I had in my viewfinder

    Some more input:

    Adam, I see your point.  What I personally want is what Lightroom does, using the built in correction information.  Until Luminar does that it will never be a competitor for Lightroom in my opinion.
