Are you using the latest version of ARC too ?
I found this out about the red conversion with DPP about a year ago. I shot the old fort in St Thomas which was a deep muddy red and ACR kept making it orange. DPP easily spit out the red. Bibble too got much closer to the red. But I haven't done any color test recently with the later versions of ARC.
Have you also looked at uprezing in DPP? I have found that when I "save and convert" in DPP if I let DPP do my uprezing, I get better...Show more →
Yes, most current ACR 4.2 which is the same raw engine used in both CS3 and LightRoom 1.2. These were out of CS3. I have not tried uprezing in DPP yet. Its really a pity that ACR performs so poorly as I also love all the controls and for a lot of shoots, LightRoom is indespensible for editing raw images quickly.
When I shot my Fuji S2 a while back, I went through the same issue with Fuji RAWS being superior in the Fuji software vs ACR. A lot of us Fuji shooters shouted fairly loudly and I think Thomas Knoll heard the call. ACR eventually matched, if not outperformed the Fuji converter. It would be interesting to see what earlier versions of ACR do with this 5D file as the RAW engine in ACR changed last year when Adobe bought RawShooter and switched to their Raw engine. At the time, I did notice that the older, non RawShooter ACR worked better with my Fuji S2 files.
