it can be fixed in PS as a raw file.

Honest question: Isn't it possible that he clipped the red highlights completely, meaning he can't recover them in raw?


Iliah Borg says that it is <very> unusual for red to blow before green in the Raw data.

I'd be very interested to hear more about this. Does this apply to any sensor, or only the Fuiis (which ones).

Any sensor with typical strength CFAs.

Anecdotally, I see more problems with the red channel in people's photography than with any other channel.

If it's just the red channel that appears clipped in a landscape like the OP's, that's often due to the processing (in-camera or in post).  But let's take a look at his Raw file.
