5D Mark III in camera lens aberration correction
« on: April 18, 2012, 12:58:41 AM »
Hi all,

Since I switched from my crop body (Canon 350D) to the 3D Mark III (great camera), I found that the Canon 50mm 1.4 I loved is not so good with portraits anymore, I replaced it with the Canon 85mm 1.8 which has a better reach but lots of chromatic aberrations at full aperture. I had high expectations in the in camera lens correction but it seems this lens is not supported (correction data not available).

Is there a list of the supported lenses ? Does anyone know if canon plan to support more lenses through a firmware update ?

Thanks,
John

Not sure about the in-camera correction, but ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) also has a database of lenses that it can correct for. I just checked and it does appear to correct for the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM lens.

Hi Lessmore,

Even in DPP it is supported, but I was looking for the in camera support. My 24-105 4L is supported but not the 50mm 1.4 or the 85mm 1.8.

Actually, the lenses are supported for chromatic aberrations...It's just the profiles for these lenses are not loaded into the 5d mark III by default...

Install the EOS Utility that comes with the camera...then connect the camera to your computer via USB. Open the EOS utility. Once open, click on Camera Settings then Lens Aberration Correction. A window will open with lenses listed. Check and uncheck lenses you want support for...I think there is a limit of 40...don't remember for sure. Once done, click Ok...The profiles will now be available in the camera now...

I did this once and checked that the lenses I have were checked and also checked a few I plan on getting in the future...

Does the the in-camera lens fix work with RAW files, or is it just processed jpegs?

Just JPGs, but it sets flags in the RAW metadata so that DPP will automatically apply the corrections.  Other RAW converts just ignore the flags.

I used the update from canon. It did ask to insert the original disc, and I inserted my 7D disc because my 5D Mark III disc was at work. You answered my question though. Thanks!!!

Use EOS Utility while connecting your camera to the pc, in 'camera setting/remote shooting' you can get the list with supported lenses. You will see the 85mm 1.8 in the list, just add it to the list for your camera. (not all the lenses are standard included into the camera list) Happy hunting afterwards :)

Hi all,

Since I switched from my crop body (Canon 350D) to the 3D Mark III (great camera), I found that the Canon 50mm 1.4 I loved is not so good with portraits anymore, I replaced it with the Canon 85mm 1.8 which has a better reach but lots of chromatic aberrations at full aperture.

Is there a list of the supported lenses ? Does anyone know if canon plan to support more lenses through a firmware update ?

Is the 500mm 4.0L IS supported?  I see support for the II version but nothing else.
