Do you use the camera calibration tab? First, second, last? Which setting do you use?

What other tweaks do you use on the majority of images?

Most of the time I start with Adobe standard, and most of the time it gives pleasing results.  I have issues with it over saturating the reds in some instances (like silk red dresses, for example) and I'll go to camera neutral and adjust it from there.  Adobe standard tends to punch up the colors so it's fairly easy to saturate already vivid colors.

As RedFox88 stated I also have import presets which you can setup in Lightroom, I use this to set my sharpening, NR, that sort of thing.  You can set them up based upon the image ISO.  For instance my sharpening gets set to 50 with a mask of 60.  I'll often adjust off of this but it's a good starting point.

Hope this helped...
