Having fun with camera / film profiles in Capture One Pro 7 and LightRoom 5

Favorite to less favorite : 1. Capture One Pro Pentax KIIs Generic Profile  2. Capture One Pro Leica M240 Generic Profile 3. Capture One Pro Velvia Profile 4. LightRoom Velvia Profile

Lightroom Velvia profile shows the most accuracy to emulate the film. The spoon in the center is indeed Orange. However, this profile in LR5 smeared too much detail on the pink ribbon.

Capture One Pro Velvia profile makes the best color popping effect. The saturation is strong but doesn’t lose details.

Two of my favorite Capture One Pro preset generic color profiles are Pentax KIIs and Leica M240. Pentax has the most subtle color. It has the best balance of natural light, contrast, details, and saturation. Leica M240 although isn’t much different, but noticeable brighter shadow brightness and saturation.

For landscape and normal scenes, I would go for Pentax KIIs or Capture One Pro Velvia profile. For Portraits I would go for either KIIs or M240. LR5 Velvia has very strong color rendering probably only suitable for landscape. However, Capture One Pro is noticeably sharper, much better control at shadow area. LR5 can indeed squeeze out more dynamic range out of the camera. Much more fine tune options on curves just like Photoshop.

  1. Hi! Where did you get the color profiles of Velvia for C1? It doesn’t seem to be included on the default profiles, at least I don’t see it when I open a file from my camera. Thanks for you post, very interesting.
