Panasonic GH3 - Skin Tone Color Cast

Hi Panasonic Users,

I sold my GH2 last year because skin tones were shifted toward magenta/green, which I could not fix it in post.

On reviewing the samples from Photographyblog and GH3 Genesis Movie, I detect the same color shift to skin tones. This shift is very apparent in the Grey and Skin Colored tones. It saddens me, I waited for a year hoping Panasonic would fix this for us. This notwithstanding all the wonderful features they have included this year.

Because I shoot mainly people photos, the Panasonic 'G' color palate is somewhat unnatural to my eye.


1) Can this unflattering skin tone shift be fixed? Perhaps a camera setting or in post?

2) Is this a Sensor model problem?

Thanks in advance.

David A.
