Hi All,

have updated my Classic today and read also Voctoria post about the new features. Just have a question regarding the defaults system

When selecting a camera model what will be the difference between choosing Adobe default or camera settings?

Adobe Default picks the normal default, Camera Settings tries to apply the camera matching profile (e.g. if you were shooting in B&W in the camera, it selects the B&W profile for that photo)

ok, thanks for the info. Will it also do something when shooting RAW?

The defaults only apply when shooting raw.

Then Camera Settings would go with something like Camera Standard, or if there's no such profile, it'd revert to Adobe Defaults.
