Some things to check

Hi, I have a new SD1M that produce colors not true: some reds are orange, some greens are light blue; I've tried to change wb and to set up a personal wb, but with no result...which could be the cause?

Can you post an example?

Some things to look at:

1) Have you tried bringing down exposure in SPP - the reds going to orange can be a result of over-exposure.

2) What color mode are you shooting in? Neutral yields I think the closest to real colors.  Also if reds still seem a bit orange, try +0.2-+0.3 saturation in SPP (processing a Neutral color mode image).

3) Do you have the SPP working space set to sRGB?  Display colors seem odd otherwise.  It doesn't mean you cannot still save in AdobeRGB or ProPhoto, it only affects review.
