"LR4 behavior with D7000" Sun 23-Dec-12 02:19 PM by JerryLoSardo
Whenever I post-process images in LR4 that were shot with my D700, within the Develop module under Profile (on the lower righthand panel) I have access to about 18 different camera profiles that simulate different picture controls. In addition to the usual Vivid, Standard, Neutral, Portrait, and Landscape, there is an alternate Vivid v4, Standard v4, etc. Then there are the D2X Modes 1, 2 and 3, and each of these also has an alternate v4 version. Finally there is Adobe Standard and ACR v4.6.
However, images shot with my D7000 only offer me 6 options: Neutral, Standard, Adobe Standard, Portrait, Landscape, and Vivid.
Can anyone offer me a reason as to why I'm given different choices for different camera bodies? I tried searching Nikonians, but came up empty. I'm using LR4.2.

V4 profiles are improved profiles relative to the original Nikon emulation profiles. They solve some problems seen in more extreme conditions where the older ones could sometimes create a "rainbow-like" pattern in small areas of the photo. ACR 4.6 is the older Adobe Standard profile and is there for compatibility with images created in past versions of LR. The reason there are no D2X modes is that Nikon doesn't offer the older Mode 1, 2, 3 profiles in their software for more recent cameras, so there's nothing for Adobe to match.
