Camera Calibration / Camera Profile Setting for K200D in ACR?

Does anyone know of any camera profiles for the camera calibration section of Adobe Camera Raw for the K200D. I went through a phase of shooting RAW before deciding that I'd save it for select instances (and use the RAW button), as it simply fills my HDD unnecessarily, and I figure I've still got enough to learn regarding processing jpgs.

Now I have a few days worth of RAW files that I'd like to batch process in the same manner my camera does (as I rather like the JPGs from camera with my current setting).

Any suggestions?

If you prefer the results from the camera to the results from ACR, the easiest way to replicate them would be to simply do the batch job in PPL.

But frankly, I think you have it backwards if you're trying to master processing JPEG before tackling RAW. Processing RAW is far simpler and more effective than processing JPEG. I'd say it takes a really good RAW shooter to truly understand how to squeeze the best reults out of JPEG, not the other way around.

The K10 and the k20 both use the standard profiles adobe supply. Both are available in AdobeCameraRaw 5.4 and Lightroom 2 and I would be surprised if not already available for k200.
I use Adobe 4.4, you might prefer Pentax 4.4 if you want the result to be as camera like as possible. By the time I have finished file-tuning the image it hardly matters which you use.

new profiles are always better. just like acr 5.4 is better at processing raws than 3 was. the newest adobe standard are great.
