Camera Raw: Camera Profile for Ricoh GXR doesn't represent colors correctly

I own a Ricoh GXR with A12 28mm unit for two months. Recently I found that Adobe's CameraRaw doesn't fully support the RAW file by this camera. When staring the camera towards some blue light source, often find that the in-camera JPEG file gets the accurate blue whereas the RAW opened by LR/PS would be too over.

Don't know if any has come across the same problem.

Which profile do you have selected under Camera Calibration in the Develop module?

Could it be that your problem lies in the fact that the WB scale in ACR/LR doesn't extend as far down as needed? See this thread at the U2U forum for a similar issue occuring with underwater photos.

Dear Jeffrey, I am using Adobe Standard but I couldn't find any specifically for GXR.

Dear Beat, Definitely not WB problem. I am attaching the pic output by Lightroom (with no adjustment) and you will know the problem. Unfortunately I deleted the JPEG file directly from camera, otherwise we can have one comparison...

Adobe Standard is the name of the default color profile for the GXR. It is specific to the GXR (not a generic profile). If you find the blues are too saturated for this image, try reducing the Blue Saturation slider in the Camera Calibration panel (i.e., dragging it to the left).

The RAW file is processed by Capture One Pro 6.3.2 and got this result...Pretty close to the In-camera JPEG

So see if Adobe can help in this case. I can send the RAW to somebody who can help. Please let me know what to do for next step

Thanks a lot anyway!

P.S. I suspect the same issue happens on Sony sensor. I have one friend using Sony A850 encountering the same problem.
