Lightroom Mobile (Android): Colours in RAW format inverted?

I've got a brandnew Huawei P10 lite and installed the latest Lightroom CC (Android).

When I take a photo in RAW, it first seems OK in the preview.

But when I look at it later (after it is stored on the mobile as well as in the Adobe cloud) all colours are inverted (e.g. red becomes blue, blue is red, green is yellow, and so on).

I cannot find any setting where I can correct this error.

It is only happening when I take the photo in raw format. When I change to jpeg it is ok.

I know that it has to do with the interpretation of the raw format - but how can I change this misbehavior?


Thanks for any support -

Hi Roland, Can you please try out few other third party cameras (like Camera FV5, Manual Camera, etc) for DNG capture, and let me know that the issue is specific to Lightroom CC for Android or not.

Also is the issue happening post importing the images in Lightroom CC or the source image itself has the issue (Lightroom Camera captured images can be found at DCIM/LightroomCamera directory).

Hi Arnab,
thank you for your quick response. Regarding your Qs:

- The issue already exists on the source image itself and can be found at DCIM/LightroomCamera already in the DNG file (size 22,44 MB - it is a real DNG)

- Now comes the interesting part: I purchased the pro Version of Camera FV5 to be able to switch to RAW format. Now the APP tells me that RAW format is NOT supported by this camera! So I looked up a review of my Huawei P10 lite and it says that the light version of this mobile really does not support RAW format.

So I think that the following happens: Because the Huawei P10 supports RAW the P10 light is the same hardware but maybe the RAW functionality is somehow disabled by the operating system via a software switch or something like this. While the Camera FV5 reads and interprets this settings correctly it might be that Lightroom CC detects the RAW functionality and uses it to produce the DNG file. Now since it is not supported by this model there might be some Driver files missing, that take care for the right colour interpreteation and this might be the reason why the colours are diplayed incorrect.

Bottom line is - unfortunately this mobile doesn't support RAW format officially :-(.

Anyway - thanks a lot for helping me to find out!!!
