You can change many of the settings to make them the new Lightroom defaults. You can also save the calibration to a Preset and apply that at Import.
The way to do it is to start with a newly imported image with nothing changed, yet.
Then modify the settings you want to be the new defaults, then hold the Alt/Opt key and click Set Defaults… and affirm that you want to update to the current settings.
Be careful to use a new image because otherwise any other image settings you’ve applied will also be saved as the new LR defaults.
Customizing the LR defaults won’t affect existing images, only new ones after the change or if you click Reset which sets the image settings to whatever the defaults are.
Thanks ssprengel, just what I wanted to know. Cheers. :-)
Is the camera profile setting like a photo paper .icc setting? If you change the default as outlined, say from Adobe Standard to Camera Faithful on an newly imported image, is that setting specific to the camera used for that image or is that a general any camera failthful?
For example, I shoot a Canon 5D MkIII and a Canon 7D MkII. If I change the camera profile default to Camera Faithful will it be the correct setting for images imported from either camera?

All those setting are recorded for the camera serial number. So they only affect that one camera. That may be a good reason to make a preset out of them also if you have 2 cameras of the same make and model.
Thanks. That helps a lot. I'll create a preset for each camera just setting the camera profile and perhaps the lens correction.
