S3 IS RAW comparision photos
Dec 25, 2006

I managed to get the RAW hack (from http://digicanon.narod.ru/ ) working on my S3 IS, but after spending some time testing I've decided it isn't worth the hassle most of the time. The only useful differences are that there's more fine detail due to the lack of noise reduction, very dark areas don't get desaturated, and there's no in-camera sharpening. The extra highlight range isn't terribly useful as one or more channels often end up clipped anyway. Anyway, here's two 100% crops, first the original JPEG ( -2 contrast, saturation, and sharpening) with the saturation turned up a bit, no other post-processing:

Next, the RAW image, converted to a 16 bit TIFF with dcraw, contrast and saturation adjusted, and a bit of sharpening applied:
