Canon 5D III - HDR Posterization

I really love the HDR effect (natural) from the 5D3 and it is hard to get close to it using other HDR programs but a HUGE drawback is the posterization I get in the final image out of the camera when shooting sunrise or sunset shots.

I shoot RAW - Keep the three master files and the JPEG HDR image that the camera makes.

Is there ANY setting to prevent this? Color space?

Thanks,
Michael

You should post an example of the problem, with the settings used in your camera that results in the particular output.

The answer is shoot your own bracketed RAWS, and process them with Photoshop or HDRPro in 32 bit mode, then do your tone mapping before exporting to JPEG. The more of the math/mapping you do at the higher bit depth, the less banding and artifacts you get. Always try to use at least 5 frames and monitor your histogram to make sure you are getting the full dynamic range of the scene captured.
