Generally speaking, red channel problems CAN be a product of all DSLR files that I have seen. When shooting red roses, California poppies, or magenta clothes, the red channel can sometimes become blown (R=255) or merely super saturated (R=190-250). The solution most always ends up becoming a PP one and might well include some initial exposure compensation, like -.5. If the problem is simply too much red saturation, that can easily be taken care of in your raw conversion.

If the red channel is truely blown, the solutions are many:

1- Cut initial exposure

2- Do a double raw conversion and mask the reds. Most effective

3- Simply reduce the saturation in raw conversion
