Red roses and RAW colors - help!
Oct 23, 2011

I am having problems to achieve natural red colors when importing RAW format into LR3. It happens ONLY with reach red colors.... any other colors look perfect.

This is how it should look like (Panasonic camcorder HDC TM700) :

This is how it looks after RAW import into LR3 (7D and 100mm L):

As you can see it is over saturated, the structure is non-existing and the color tone is completely wrong. I tried to edit colors, saturation, temperature etc., it gets better, but still too far from the real colors.

Again, the problem appears to be only with red colors. The same RAW picture looks slightly better in Canon DPP, but still colors are wrong.

Please help... am I missing some settings with the RAW format?
