New Huelight profiles for K-1 released

Just checked on Huelight's twitter account and pleasantly surprised to see that several hours ago they released their camera profiles for the K-1.

Huelight Pentax Camera Profiles

I'm very pleased with their profiles for the K3 vs Adobe's generic profile.

I'll be ordering sometime this week!

I loved the K-3 profile. I will be picking up the K-1 profile for sure.

Is there just 1 profile? I noticed with Adobe's ootb profile, all pentax shots are muted. I was converting them in pdcu to Tiff just to get the out of camera color.

Are you using DCU5 to apply the jpeg processing and then exporting? Cause that would explain the muted colors in LR.

Its an optional color profile you can use when developing raw images in adobe products. Typically, you have the choice of the embedded color profile, or using the adobe standard profile. This gives you another options using the huelight profile. Its just a different choice of how to render colors when developing a raw image. I find it gives much more pleasing skin tones when compared to the other two.

Yeah, the Adobe profile, at least for the Pentax cameras I tried, is just okay. Not really great. Embedded is slightly better. RawStudio and Huelight are better, especially with red and blue colours. But it does depend on what your subject is. Most important is to set up the profile before you start any other PP. First colour profile, then WB, NR, contrasts, finally saturation, vibrance. If you have a fully developed photo and switch colour profile, it will look odd at best.

Huelight provides, at least for the K3, four different profiles to choose from.

Generally I use low for portraiture, standard for sports, and high for landscapes (although this can vary depending on the scene).

I like the more muted K-1 RAW profile. Its a much better starting point. The Adobe profile is much better with the K-1 that it was with the K-3. I tried Huelight and I was not really that impressed. I ended up buying an X-rite color passport and creating my own profiles.
