Cornerfix profiles for ultra wide Voigtlaender lenses on Sony NEX-5 and NEX-7

In a previous article I already described how to post-process images which were taken with ultra wide legacy lenses on a Sony NEX in order to eliminate the magenta cast in the corners. I use the free software cornerfix (which is available for Mac and PC).

In order to get the best results, you should create your own lens profiles. Therefore you can follow these instructions. I recommend a flat field reference file which is based on a picture through a matted glass panel.

But as you may not have such a glass panel at hands you can also download one of my profiles and give it a try.

If the profiles work for you, then please leave a comment or send a note.

View from Nebelhorn to Hintere Entschenalpe

The Nebelhorn is a popular mountain near Oberstdorf in the south of Germany. It is so popular, because it can be easily accessed via a cable car from Oberstdorf. From the summit station to the summit you only have to walk about 50m. The viewpoint where I made this panorama is a bit farther away, but still accessible very easily.

Hintere Entschenalpe

The name of the alp you see here roughly translates to “Hindmost Colossus Alp”. It is found in the Retterschwang valley near Bad Hindelang. Cycling from Bad Hindelang brings you from 800m to the alp at 1451m in about 10km distance. You should use a mountain bike with the appropriate gears!
