No problems here.

I actually use an app on my Samsung smartphone, which has an IR blaster built in.

Depends on whether you're using a Mac or Windows PC, but on Windows copy the files to:

C:\Users\[USER_NAME]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0\Downloaded

...then restart Lightroom. The lens profile will be located under Make: RICOH.

Irix has released lens correction profiles for their 15mm lens on Nikon, Canon, and Pentax mounts, and thank goodness.

You can download the profiles from their site here: Irix - Downloads, under the 'Other' section.

Quick update: I shot a message to Irix and they confirmed they are working on Lightroom lens correction profiles. So that's good.

Cheers, and I don't mind constructive criticism! I definitely ran into a few instances where I could tell something was a wee bit off but the tools I had weren't granular enough to do a whole lot about it. The overall effect is fine for its intended use (a contractor's website), but I would certainly like to continue to hone my technique over time. Comments are always appreciated.

I'm hoping that someone will develop a correction profile for the IRIX, as the default tools in Lightroom are more or less limited to basic barrel distortion and horizonal/vertical corrections, and it's tiring to apply these by eye each time. At some point it's a matter of Effort In vs Result Out.

But now I'm self-conscious. I'll have to give them another pass.

re: rectilinear UWA lenses, it's partially a matter of end goals. Most of the time, the photos exist to draw interest and sell a product. UWA shots exaggerate space in a compelling way and provide spacial context for the surrounding environment that no amount of creative framing with a 35mm can reproduce. I think it's important to provide a mix of fields of view, so I will generally provide 35-50mm handheld shots for details and fixtures on top of the 'show me the room' shots. I feel it works well.

Thank you! It's 90% just being there. :)



I honestly hadn't thought about it until just now, but you're absolutely right. I hate taking photos and only realizing later that my perspective was just slightly askew.

I was a little hurried during this shoot so I'm afraid focus may not be totally perfect here.

These are five-exposure HDRs, shot at f/8. The Irix has a good deal less inherent distortion than my Sigma, but it's worth noting that Lightroom does not yet have a correction profile in place for the Irix, so any adjustments have to be eyeballed.





Here's that first shot as a single exposure (non-HDR), adjusted to taste in Lightroom.

I'm going to be doing a kitchen shoot with an Irix later this morning, replacing a Sigma 10-15 that I had been using in crop mode. Will report back!

I've had a great experience with it on my K-1, but I'm sure the screen resolution has something to do with it.

I'm doing some interior test shots at f/13 and it's actually not bad. It's only wide open that it's obvious.

For my usage, it might be sufficient. Distortion is blessedly low, almost imperceptible.
