    I seem to remember someone saying that they developed a preset that mimicked the out of camera jpg images.

    If you are willing to share your secrets please let me know.

    What I did is I downloaded the Adobe Lightroom colour profiles for my NEX-7 from here (scroll down a bit, there are profiles for the NEX-6 on that page too.) then I shot in Raw & Jpeg for awhile and adjusted the profile I prefer (Landscape) until it matched to my eyes what I saw in the Jpeg, then I saved it as a preset to add on import.

    So, now when I import the Raw file it auto adds that preset and it looks really close to the Jpeg Sony would have given me OOC and looks like exactly like what I saw on the viewfinder/screen of my NEX-7.

    Thanks but I can't figure out how to install on my mac? Can't find a folder or anything for camera raw.

    The Library folder is hidden in OSX Lion and Mountain Lion. Go here to learn how to 'unhide' it.

    Then go to 'user' > Library > Application Support > Adobe > CameraRaw > CameraProfiles

    and put it in there. Don't overwrite.

    Keep the library unhidden as it gives you access to Lightroom too 'user' > Library > Application Support > Adobe > Lightroom

    Which gives you access to the folder Develop Presets. I keep a copy of that folder as a back up in Dropbox so that if anything happened to my Lightroom installation, I can have all my presets back without guessing.
