Baseline Exposure in Lightroom 3 - How to adjust for it when using a Nikon D3 or D700

One of the most frustrating things in Lightroom when using a Nikon D3 or D700 is that the Adobe Standard Profile overexposes your raw images. It took many frustrating hours to figure out why this is. When you use the camera profiles that Adobe has included, the exposure issue seems fixed. However, when you use the X-Rite Colorchecker Passport custom profiles, the images are overexposed again. The culprit of this problem is known as Baseline Exposure. This video will demonstrate how you find the baseline exposure for a particular image, and how to adjust for it in Lighgtroom.

For illustration I used raw files from a D700 and D5100

Here's a video I posted on youtube explaining the solution:
