Video Tutorial – Customize Lightroom’s Default Develop Settings

In order to define different default processing settings for different cameras, select Lightroom’s Preferences and click the  Presets tab.  Under the Default Develop Settings area, check “Make defaults specific to camera serial number”. This can be extremely useful , for example if you are shooting with multiple cameras and want Lightroom to automatically apply a different Camera Calibration profile to each. Click here for a video about setting default Camera Calibration profiles (and other options). (This video covers both Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw in Photoshop.)

Notice that in the preferences you can also choose to “Make defaults specific to camera ISO settings”
