Hello,

I am running PM 5 build 17719 (c8049ca) with MacOS 10.12.1 as mentioned above focusmode, whitebalance do not work in the infopanel and the ICC profile is wrong. It should be Adobe RGB but it shows sRGB instead.

This seems connected with Canon EOS 5D Mark IV files. I didn´t have the problem with the 5D Mark III.

IPTC saved with PM doesn´t work properly either. Some fields (e.g. caption) doesn´t show up in Photoshop or CaptureOne.

Any help?

The ICC profile is that of the embedded JPEG which is always sRGB.  RAW files don't have an ICC profile associated with them.

What IPTC/XMP settings are you using?  You should be using the "Adobe" settings which should produce an XMP sidecar file for your RAW files.

Thank you Kirk,

I changed to Adobe settings, but it didn´t had any effect on the files when using CaptureOne. Still missing datas and also some words changing the spelling (e.g. n instead of b). I usually convert files within C1 and C1 now doesn´t tranfer the data properly. XMP sidecars are also not very appealing to me, as I have now more and more files in my folders. All of this wasn´t the case before, with my older 5D´s.

Any thought´s?

Thanks
Ralf

Hi Kirk,

I checked older 5D files and it shows not always sRGB. With the 5D Mark III and earlier it shows exactly what was the setting in the camera body (s. attachmend). This seems to me correct, because it should mirror the settings, so if I decide to use JPEG instead of RAW it would be Adobe RGB. Am I wrong with this thoughts?

Many thanks
Ralf

This question has popped up here a while ago. The newer Canon cameras apparently always save the embedded JPG as sRGB, despite the camera being set to aRGB. See the discussion here: http://forums.camerabits.com/index.php?topic=10616.0

I don't see how specific letters can change unless the text is being reinterpreted with a different encoding.  XMP is UTF-8 and all applications should interpret the text as UTF-8.  Legacy IPTC data is subject to interpretation however.  We don't recommend relying on legacy IPTC data.

Hello Kirk,

there is a b missing in the coyright field - not changing. Sorry that was my mistake. I am just wondering why these things with the 5D MK IV are changing when they worked before with the older 5D cameras?

My workflow is adding IPTC informations into the RAW files while importing. After that, converting with CaptureOne to Tiff. It seems now that this is not working anymore. Do I have to get in contact with the CaptureOne people about this issue or do you have a solution?


Thank you Hayo for clarifying...

Best
Ralf

If you can furnish a sample Canon 5D MkIV RAW file that exhibits this behavior, I can look into the file and see what the copyright field looks like.  If it is properly represented then you'd have to take up the issue with the C1 folks.

If you can put a sample up on something like DropBox and give me a link to it that would be the best, otherwise you can contact me privately for our FTP server information and then you can upload your sample to our server.

Thank you Kirk,

 I was just preparing a sample file for you and used another camera body and the issue disappeared. So, I have to investigate more on my end to find out if this is a specific camera problem. I will report back, when I am closer to a result. This will take some days, as I am quite busy at the moment.

Sorry for the inconvinience I caused so far.

Best wishes
Ralf

Ralf,

The 5D Mk IV was not whitelisted in PM to parse the maker note and therefore some fields are missing including {focusmode} and {whitebalance}.  I have added this model (and a few other recent Canon models) to the whitelist and these fields should be back in the next release.
