    Hi all. Hopefully someone can help me.

    I recently purchased the G5 which I am enjoying very much, however I just discovered a problem when I import my RAW bracketed photos to Photomatix Pro. There is a reddish hue to them once imported. It only seems to happen with RAW files, not JPEGs. Has anyone else experienced this? I also have a GF3 and I don't get the reddish hue when I import RAW files from that camera. I've updated to the latest version of Photomatix but that didn't help.

    Check the HDRsoft FAQ page.
    The G5 is not yet on the list of cameras supported. Also, they recommend exporting your RAW files to TIFF, then merging the TIFF's in Photomatix, since they do not have rights to proprietary RAW converters.

    Thanks Mike! Probably should have thought of checking there first. :redface:

    I tried RawTherapee and also results were awful.
    But G5 comes with SILKYPIX Developer Studio and it does good job for the RAW files.
