Re: Real world test

Hi Phil!

Wow, interesting thread. Thanks to vortout for starting it and Jonas for telling me about it.

The ISO 1600/3200 = shifted ISO 800 fact was known before, so no surprise. Gordon's K10D examination and the implication of using a fixed low-noise amp are especially interesting in this light..

I always suspected there might be some WB processing done. I could not see it, though. And Phil's post probably explains why.

But I'd assume that by correcting the RAW WB, even if a very similar colour can be achieved, there would be higher noise in the channel with the most correction. Whethe it's enough to worry about, is another question, though...

Cheers
Jens
