In it Rick from Colorado states:
“Try these camera calibration settings in Lightroom. They’re not an exact match for Mode III, but they’ll get you in the ballpark.
Red Hue: -25
Red Saturation: +35
Green Hue: 0
Green Satuation: +10
Blue Hue: +10
Blue Saturation: -25
Depending on which contrast setting you prefer in Capture or in-camera, you may need to adjust some of the other parameters as well. A “normal contrast” setting in NX is similar to a “strong” contrast curve and a contrast setting of around 30-35 in Lightroom. These settings work fine in ACR as well.
In practice, I have presets in Lightroom and ACR called Mode III Color, Mode II Color and Mode III Default. The first and second simply change the values on the camera calibration tab, with the Mode III one using the values I just mentioned, and the Mode II reflecting zeroed settings. Those enable me to quickly change between two different color palettes. The Mode III Default setting incorporates color mode, tone curve and contrast values and gives me the equivalent of Mode III and a normal contrast curve. It replicates a combination I use frequently with Capture.
