Download Nikon D3000 18-55 and 55-200 Kit-Lens Profiles for free

The Nikon D3000 is a entry level DSLR and the kit-lenses you get with it are not the best lenses in the world – but with the new lens correction introduced in Photoshop CS5, Camera Raw 6.1 and in the forthcomming Lightroom 3 will help you get better pictures even if you are just entering in the semi-pro digital photography.

Since Adobe and no other user has yet supplied Lens Profiles for this “cheap” lenses I’ve made them on a rainy sunday. So just download them and put them in the according folders to enjoy them.

The zip files includes the profiles for the NIKON D3000 with Nikkor 18.0-55.0 mm f3.5-5.6, and the NIKON D3000 with the Nikkor 55.0-200.0 mm f4.0-5.6 lenses.

    I wonder if this is a profile for the D3000 *in use with* the 18-55?

    I’m just looking for a profile for the 18-55 VR lens, also I’m looking for a Nikon D80 profile.

    Will this work as a correct lens profile?

    Regards, Fredrik

    • Hi,
      I think Adobe has changed it’s policy in the regard of pairing cameras with lenses. This profile is made with a D3000 but should work now with other cameras as well. But the 18-55 VR is a different lens than this one and therefore this profile is not suitable for you.
