Camera Profiles for Fujifilm X in ACR / Lightroom

The Adobe Camera Raw engine is shared by both Adobe Photoshop CC and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, so the ideas here apply equally to both. Certain other raw converters also offer camera profile variants.

When converting using Adobe Camera Raw, the choice of camera profile can exert a large influence on color and contrast.

Found under the Camera Calibration area in the Photoshop CC raw conversion dialog, the Camera Profile choice controls the resulting look of the image. The source of these profiles is unclear; Adobe Standard presumably comes from Adobe lab targets, the other presumably from the camera vendor.

Most cameras have at least one alternative: Camera Embedded, and some have more than that. Still others offer nothing but Adobe Standard. Which profile to use is a matter of taste and what is preferred might vary by image. Moreover, changing the profile can mean that the Tint is substantially affected (magenta/green shift) so white balance might also need adjustment.
