Nikon camera profiles vs Adobe camera profile in Camera Raw

  1. Just wondering if you prefer using the Nikon camera calibration profiles, or just stick with Adobe Standard in postproduction. It looks to me that the Nikon profiles has better dynamic range (which is usually better starting point for me), but they have also slight warm color cast (my monitor is not calibrated, so I am not sure about this).
  2. I use custom camera profiles for RAW conversion using Adobe Lightroom. I find custom profiles give more accurate color than Adobe Standard or Camera profiles. You can purchase custom camera profiles for your camera or generate them yourself using Adobe's free DNG Profile Editor software, X-Rite Passport software, and others. Your monitor needs to be calibrated if you want to get accurate color.
