Studio scene comparison (Raw)

This is our standard studio scene comparison shot taken from exactly the same tripod position. Lighting: daylight simulation, >98% CRI. Crops are 100%. Ambient temperature was approximately 22°C (~72°F).

For a (more) level playing field for comparison we also shot our studio scene in Raw mode with each camera and converted it using Adobe Camera Raw. Because Adobe Camera Raw applies different levels of sharpening to different cameras (this confirmed) we use the following workflow for these conversions:

  • Load Raw file into Adobe Camera Raw (Auto mode disabled)
  • Set Sharpness to 0 (all other settings default)
  • Open file to Photoshop
  • Apply a Unsharp mask: 100%, Radius 0.6, Threshold 0
  • Save as a JPEG quality 11 for display and download.

Note: this page features our new interactive studio shot comparison widget. Click here to find out more.

I have owned PowerShot S100 for a while and in many ways it worked well - for a while. Bought the S100 for the GPS feature which can be quite slow. In areas that are less than open a signal may not be received, but it mostly worked. The largest drawback and reason I am writing this "comment" is because my S100 camera just stopped working on a trip through India, Nepal and the UAE. A message appears "Lens Error - Will shut down automatically - Restart camera". The camera turns itself off and the lens will not retract and CANNOT be restarted. If you are planning an important vacation you may want to consider another camera. Please check other reviews regarding this issue elsewhere. I do not want others to have a vacation of a lifetime ruined my a nonfunctioning camera.

Great review, Kelcey :) Canon PowerShot S100 is a very nice pocket camera. Some extra zoom would be nice though, it is quite expensive for just 5x optical. I think there are some more capable cameras for $350 out there.
