    RAW sample repositories

    Both dpreview.com and imaging-resource.com provide useful samples for comparing digicams at various ISO settings, but unfortunately they focus on JPEG and provide no downloadable RAW samples. It would be great if owners of current digicams would upload RAW samples to one of the following sites:

    http://www.rawsamples.ch/index_en.php
    http://www.glasslantern.com/RAWpository/
    http://raw.fotosite.pl/

    If you can post comparison shots from more than one camera (preferably using a tripod and equivalent settings), then it would be even more useful. I'm sure many small-sensor buffs would be happy to compare the Canon G9, Panasonic LX2 and Ricoh GX100 (at 35mm or 50mm), and the LX2, GX100 and GR-D/GR-D2 (at 28mm). Needless to say, adding a DSLR to the mix may also make things interesting

    Thanks!

    Another trick is to use www.yousendit.com. What you can do is send raws to yourself than post a link to the downloaded files on there site. Works great

    Guy, the challenge isn't really to find a place to host the files (I'd be happy do host them if the links above are insufficient), the challenge is to convince people to shoot those files and contribute them. Any takers?

    That's true. One also has to be careful how much value they place on there samples also. Copyright and all that if one is worried about that stuff.

    BTW welcome to the forums
