Photo Tweaks for Sony Cameras

Sony A6000, A5100 and A5000 cameras are technically as perfect as cameras can be, except the colors out of the camera - yellowish, cold and soft.



It is very easy to do it in Lightroom. First, get the correct color profiles from here. For Windows 8, unzip the files into this folder: C:\Users\Mary\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles. Replace "Mary" with your user name. Restart Lightroom. Apply the new profiles like this:

To sharpen up the photos, apply "Detail" and "Lens Corrections" like this:

That's it.

I included four color profiles in the package for all the aforementioned three Sony cameras:
  1. 70D Standard: colors look like Canon 70D's.
  2. 7D Dark: most close to Sony and Capture One.
  3. EM5: my favorite warm and reddish Olympus colors, above photos used this profile.
  4. 5D2: quite close to 70D but less red overcast.
I tried MANY other profiles, but these are the only ones I could accept.

Samples using these profiles in above order:
