Are you using PEF or DNG format for the raw files? DNG files embed a colour profile which you can select by going to the colour tab (alt + c) then select the colour management module (all the way down) and set it to Camera Standard. I think the camera standard setting for PEF and DNG will look different with the DNG file looking more like the Pentax colours.

For this reason I recommend shooting DNG with Pentax cameras. It just gives you one more colour preset in RT.
I shot the same scene in PEF and DNG and loaded them into RT. There was no difference I can see when set to Camera Standard, or any other profile. The file browser views look more like Pentax DCU color until selected. Then the contrast and color change dramatically. The only setting from the camera that is preserved is the white balance that was set at the time of the exposure.

The thumbnail can be reset by the "clear" option, but I have not found a way to reset to the original camera settings in the main editing view.

That's interesting I have to do the test myself. The tooltip on Camera standard
Code:
Use a simple colour matrix from dcraw, and enhanced RawTherapee version (whichever is available based on camera model) or on embedded in the DNG.
The priority amongst the choices isn't clear neither is which one is currently active. Perhaps the embedded DNG profile never gets activated due to one of the other options getting there first.

The file browser initially displays the thumbnail created by the camera. So thats a sooc jpeg display until you load the image in the editor or apply a profile. This lower res jpeg is still embedded in you raw file and can be extracted using various tools. If I'm not mistaken the "Auto matched tone curve" on the exposure tab use this thumbnail to create a tone curve.

You can't really "reset" to the sooc settings (note that nothing in the raw is changed only the view in Rawtherapee) because that would require the exact same software and pipeline as the camera. Even if you reset the thumbnails by deleting cache or pp3 files as soon as you touch them they will change again because they are only previews generated by the camera.

Pixel shift is such a pain I often hesitate to use it.

I have comparison images on these two and the difference in detail in the reds is well worth the extra effort.

Hey Norm, what are you using for post processing?
I use the supplied Pentax software, Digital Camera Utility to combine the pixel shifted images, export a 16 bit TIFF, then process using my normal processor, Apple Aperture, software that's been officially dead for a few years now.
