Lightroom profiles - beyond Pentax supplied?

Having just bought a K1 (and loving it so far.. other than the availability of lenses...), I am wondering if there are custom LR profiles that are available and created to be colour neutral etc for the K1. I presume huelight has one.. any others I should be aware of? I remember seeing on a 645 review that there was a need for such profiles for portrait work (which is mostly what I do) - and playing with sample files, that would be my observation too. Haven't had time yet to see how skin looks under different conditions using adobe standard or Pentax neutral, so I don't know if this so much a need for the K1

There are a whole bunch of K1 profiles built into LR: standard, bright, landscape, natural, portrait, vibrant. Do none of these suit you? I find Bright is a good starting point.

I create my own LR profiles for all my cameras using ColorChecker Passport. I think the result is more neutral than the other profiles, but more important I get more consistency between cameras.

However, it would be possible to get the colour you want for a set of photos in the Develop module, create a Develop preset with those settings, then import some photos specifying the Develop preset in the Import dialogue, and create a new camera profile based on that.
