White balance of UV-photos in Lightroom 4

I found out recently, that Lightroom fails to reproduce in-camera white-balance that I have set for UV-photos.

This can be best illustrated by showing the in-camera JPG (1) and the RAW-file (2) after opening it in LR4. Other RAW converters like UFRAW/GIMP or Silkypix get the WB correct, but I would love to keep my workflow that is currently based on LR.

Camera: Panasonic Lumix G1, modified for UV and IR photography.

more info on this topic can be found here:


Any hint about a feasible remedy is highly appreciated.

Best wishes,


in-camera JPG, WB was set manually

this is how LR4 renders the file with the WB setting “as shot” – that is more than slightly off …
