Irix customers requested updates to the lens correction profiles for Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom and the manufacturer has delivered. The news posted on their website a few days ago announced not only the improvements asked for, but 2 new video tutorials to help install the new profiles.
…more accurate correction data for distortion and vignetting…
The improvements include more accurate correction data for distortion and vignetting, along with more standard cataloging within Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw. The earlier version of the profiles required the user to look up the profile under the name of the camera manufacturer. This updated version can be found under the Irix name after installation. Correction for vignetting is precise and completely automatic once the lens has been selected. Remember, radial distortion is well-controlled in these lenses, so the noticeable effect will be minimal. You will notice an increase in exposure at the corners of your images.
