PRESS RELEASE: NEW: LEICA S2 Color Profile for ICC-based Workflow Software
Solms, Germany (June 1, 2011) -- Leica Camera AG is pleased to announce a Leica S2 color profile for ICC-based workflow software. Users wishing to benefit from the new offering can now download the software from the Leica website and take advantage of new, improved features.
The Leica S2 raw data format complies with the specifications in the ADOBE DNG 126.96.36.199 standard (June 2009,) enabling DNG-compatible raw data converters to be used for processing Leica S2 DNGs. As a result, products such as Capture One 6 from Phase One can be utilized.
Further improving the color characteristics of the Leica S2 data, an ICC color profile specifically developed for the Leica S2 is now also available.
While Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw do not support this profile, a special “Adobe Standard” Leica S2 DNG color profile is integrated into the software and used automatically.
For registered S customers, the color profile and installation instructions are available for download in the owners’ area: https://owners.leica-camera.com/index.php/de/login
