S3 Noise vs S2 Noise, an Observation and Question
Mar 30, 2005

I've noticed that my S3 images are way more noisy than my S2 images were. The shots compared were raw against raw, iso 100 against iso 100 so the comparison is largely apples to apples. The scenes weren't quite the same but similar.

The S3 images were shot in expanded DR mode, F1 rendition. Both images were blown up to about 20X32 in PS CS (bi-cubic). I used a 1X4 crop from each image to compare noise and the noise from the S3 is substantially more. In fact, if I print the S3 image, the noise makes it almost unacceptable whereas, printing the S2 image looks like a larger format print.

Has anyone else observed the same or is it my equipment?
