K-3 to Photoshop

Just bought the k-3. I shot in RAW. What setting should I have in the k-3? What printer file should I use in Photoshop?

There are some recommended settings in the PF in-depth review:
Pentax K-3 Review - Recommended Settings - PentaxForums.com

When shooting in raw image capture settings don't matter much. But I'd recommend setting up your jpeg profile so that it's too your liking.

Use DNG rather than PEF. Photoshop can't yet read PEF files from the K-3.

As twitch said. And until Adobe comes out with a K-3 profile you may have to boost saturation and clarity a bit in ACR in my experience.

Or shoot JPG (I can't believe that I wrote that), the K-3's JPG engine is excellent!

That's what I'm finding, too.
