[Digikam-users] profiles & better profiles for Canon...

I'm going my first steps on 0.9svn, found a lot of things I liked (and 
wished), but as the human beeing I am I start with what I miss ;-)

One of the most important things (for me) are those icc profiles. 

1) How does somebody find out, where to find/get those profiles? I haven't 
found a hint in the documentation or on the digikam.org site (but to be 
honest, I haven't searched very serious - so if it's somewhere, please tell 

2) Shouldn't there be a set of "standard profiles" (at least wideGamut, RGB 
and SRGB plus some Camer-spezific ones) delivered together with digikam, 
paced in a default directory with the install? Or are there legal issues that 
prohibit this?

3) I've downloaded the profiles from bibble. But there is not one 
Canon-Profile that really satisfies. Most of them produce too dark images and 
all of them produce a very bad contrast compared to the results of Canon 
Software. In fact I have not found a Canon-profile yet I could use for my 
professional work...

Are there some other Canon Profiles around somewhere I could test (for me: 
CR2 / Canon Eos 20D)?

Finally: I am not 100% sure, but it seems to me, that the previews in 
the "apply profiles"-dialog do not match the result you get after saying ok. 
This makes it difficult to find out what profiles should be applied...
