Lately I've been tinkering with Adobe Camera Raw to try an emulate the skin tones from Nikon cameras. I find Sony has a tendency to lean more towards the yellow/blue channel, while I tend to prefer the contrasty reds of Nikon images. So I took a shot each from my Sony A7III and my Nikon D750 and tried creating an HSL adjustment color preset that matched with the Nikon raw output. Anyways, here's a sample below. The difference is fairly subtle, but you can see for yourself. The top is my standard edit and the bottom is the same image with the Nikon HSL Adj. preset applied.

Feel free to share you thoughts. Thanks!

Very cool! I will try it out. -- Whoops. Is this a downloadable file? All I get is a link to Flickr telling me I can't have access.

PM me with your email and I'll send you the .xmp file which you can drop in (if you're on a Mac):
Library > Application Support > Adobe > CameraRaw > Settings

Either that or just load it into the ACR presets. It should work in Lightroom as well. Also I've been trying to emulate Nikon greens, which tend to be more subtle, with added black and less saturation. Sony greens tend to have more saturation and are brighter.
