Select lens profile manually (as Affinity currently selecting the wrong one)


Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble getting Affinity to apply the correct lens distortion profile in develop persona.

I'm shooting on a Canon EOS 550D with a Tamron 18-200mm F3.5/6.3 DiII VC B018 (as recognised in the EXIF within Affinity). However, when I open the image, it keeps applying the Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8 profile to the images.

I've downloaded as the additional lens profiles for Tamron lens and installed them into the correct folder via the preferences, and confirmed the relevant .xml file contains a profile for Tamron "AF 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC".

However, I keep getting the wrong lens profile applied.

Is there a way to manually select a different lens profile in develop persona, or what should I be doing to ensure that Affinity selects the right profile? Thanks in advance.

EXIF says what? Does this match the database entry for auto-correction (Lensfun)?

@stokergDone, and really appreciate you looking at this. Filename is 97374.cr2 in line with this thread (I know it's not an image to win an award, but demonstrates the issue without subjecting you to holiday snaps!)  

@Pšenda EXIF details are in original post - there is slight variation in the naming convention, hence checking the reason for manual. Will make sure full update here if there's anything back from Tech support.
