Color Balance: Why are X-Pro2 Images Tinted Green?

Shot with the 24-megapixel Fujifilm X-Pro2 and XF 10-24mm f/4.

In field usage, I noticed a tendency for images to have a green tint on the LCD of the camera. Given the riskiness of assuming correct color on the rear LCD, I wondered only in passing at first. But as it turns out, the X-Pro2 consistently delivers in-camera JPEGs with a green tint, as will be shown here, along with what to do about it.

The findings with the DataColor SpyderCHECKR concur with the examples shown here. Those examples were with Adobe Camera Raw using raw files; these examples are with JPEGs generated in-camera from RAW. Thus with only the camera is involved, the green tint is observed. The behavior is consistent, suggesting some kind of color bug in the X-Pro2. Moreover it is occurs across the frame in its entirety; it is not a peripheral color cast issue. Whether the behavior is be peculiar to the particular camera cannot be determined here.
