what about uploading such a DNG file? (use yousendit.com)
Re color space selection in the camera: the raw image data is in the color space of the camera; the in-camera selection affects only the embedded preview and thumbnail. You can select between sRGB, AdobeRGB1998 and ProPhoto RGB when converting the raw image in TIFF or JPEG.
Thank's for getting back to me. I'll definitely send it. What email address should I send it to through yousendit? Sorry, i just signed up but I've never used that program before. Thanks!
you can use a fictional email address as recipient; after the uploading finished, a URL will be displayed for the downloading. If you post that here, everyone can download it seven days long.
If you don't want to make the file public, send it to me, "contact dot me at telus dot net" (I am not writing the address in cleartext to avoid getting even more spam than I am getting now).
Here is the link for the DNG with the color shift:
here is the link to the original CR2 file before it was converted to DNG
Thanks for looking!
Just in case you ever need to Google for the converter , Emily, I'll point out that there's nu such word as "convertor" in the English language. ;)
this is not a Raw file but an sRaw1. There was an error in ACR/DNG converter in conjunction with this format. I converted it with the DNG converter version 184.108.40.206 Beta and the color is all right.
Pls download the newest DNG converter, that will solve the problem.
I just downloaded the newest converter and the color shift seems to be somewhat better, but the dng image is about .5 - 1 stop darker than the raw file.
I also shot a few in Raw (not sRaw1) and the color shift does not occur, but the dng still comes out darker when I convert. Any idea what that is?
Thanks for all you help!

Darker than what? DPP? Embedded preview?
Actually, the ACR should display a *brighter* image due to an automatic "exposure" adjustment of 0.65 EV (0.4 EV with normal raw). (This is a clandestine adjustment, the slider does not show it.)
However, different default adjustment parameters change the "natural" appearance.
darker than how the RAW appears in Photo Mechanic. I think the exposure adjustment is the reason though. The color situation seems to be solved now, thank you for all your help.
Does Photo Mechanic show its own rendition of the raw image or does it just use the in-camera generated, embedded JPEG preview? (Sorry, I'm not familiar with that application, but I am curious.)
Photo Mechanic usually shows the embedded JPEG preview. So what you are seeing are differences between the Adobe rendering and the Canon rendering of the raw data.
