Adobe colours are completely incorrect by default
I’ve been playing with Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Camera Raw, Adobe Photoshop, Image Data Converter (made by Sony), and JPGs from my Sony a7rII. I notice that by default, the colours from a RAW look vastly different to the JPGs out of camera. I know most people frown upon JPG shooting (myself included) but I somewhat prefer the colours; they look more natural.
After playing around with the options quite a lot, I’ve managed to get close to mimicking the JPG colours without too much hassle. Image Data Converter does it straight off the bat, and it’s interesting why Sony haven’t collaborated with Adobe. In my opinion, it’s a huge hassle to have to use that program and then export the files as tiff, to then edit them in Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Lightroom.
I’ve also discovered a few bugs with the Adobe Camera Raw options, especially when defaults are saved. I’m not sure when I’ll have the article completed, but I’ll post an update when it’s done.
The differences seem subtle at first but upon looking at many different photographs, the differences are obvious.
