    Is there a way to apply the camera's default processing in Lightroom to RAW files? I shoot in RAW but most of the time, I only post-process a few photos, leaving the rest unused. Is there a function in Lightroom to process the photos using Panasonic's default camera settings? Thanks.

    Shoot RAW + JPEG.

    Shooting RAW + JPEG tends to fill up the buffer pretty fast, and I am using a sandisk class 10 card. But if there is no way around it, then I guess I will have to...

    Can't you just use the software Panasonic provides with the camera?
     
  5. Silkypix (supplied with Panasonic cameras) is a stand alone image editor. It isn't set up to emulate the in-camera processing effects such as Olympus does with their supplied software. Perhaps not such a bad thing from my experience :smile: (joking...sort of)

    You can't get any more default than your RAW files. If you don't want to post-process much at all, then just play around with your camera's settings until you find something you like (JPEG that is), and then you don't even have to worry about bringing them into LR. Just use something like Picassa or Bridge to bring them over and catalog them.

    Just play around with a RAW until you get the look you want and then set that as your default import preset in Lightroom so that it's applied to every image. You can even set the defaults on a per-camera and per-iso basis, I have default noise reduction and sharpening set differently for high and low ISOs, all automatic.
