Call for Camera Images

Recommended Posts

As part of some upcoming development work, we would like to test our software with a huge variation of camera images, and we’re hoping that some of you may be able to contribute to these efforts. We would like to receive the following files, in order of preference:

 

  1. RAW + OOC JPEG (Out Of Camera, i.e. the JPEG as written by your camera, with no modifications)
  2. RAW
  3. OOC JPEG

 

We aren’t interested in receiving JPEG images from RAW files that have been developed in software.

 

If you upload any images, we will never use them for marketing material, we will never share them outside of Serif, and no-one outside of the development department will have access to them. They will be used purely for development and testing purposes.

 

 

Please upload your images via Dropbox File Request:

https://www.dropbox.com/request/Z0QnvXPKfbUNCvbNKxU5 

 

 

We would like to thank you for your ongoing support, and will now leave you to speculate upon what this upcoming development work is for…

Hi Mark, I uploaded 1 RAW + JPG ooc. Camera Panasonic FZ1000.
Have a lot of white and shadow contrasts - snow and shadow. I hope you can use it.

Hi Mark, could you be a little bit more specific with regards to the required picture type/content? Do you prefere highISO pics, special lighting situations? ... or would any RAW crap that will be chucked out soon do the job as well?

Cheers, Timo

Also Mark,

You say 'JPEG as written by your camera, with no modifications'.

Is it OK to have ADR, sharpen, saturation etc. set on jpeg to my taste WITHIN the camera settings and NOT the ooc default jpeg settings?

cheers, Paul

Hi Timo, you can upload multiple images with different settings if you like, that would be useful.

Hi Paul, as long as it was written by the camera, that is fine.

Bonjour.

Mon boîtier (Canon EOS 5D mk II) est sur la liste des appareils testés.

Avez vous besoin d'images spécifiques (mur de briques, objets colorés, etc...)

Réglages boîtier "neutres" ? Sensibilit ISO?

 

Cordialement.

Salut, tous les paramètres et les images sont bien. Vous pouvez télécharger plus d'une image si vous le souhaitez.

Hi, any settings and images are fine. You can upload more than one image if you like.

What is the purpose of this work? Does it matter which lens I use (maybe you intend to make lens-specific profiles)?

If you have multiple cameras or lenses, please feel free to upload multiple images. 

 

Feel free to speculate about what the purpose is :-)

Done. I’ve uploaded some images from my Ricoh Theta, which takes equirectangular images. Of interest in those files is the Pitch and Roll data which can be used to level the photos. I currently do this via a script that uses Hugin’s tools, but if Affinity Photo could do that, it would be great.

At present I have two cameras (Fujifilm X-T1 and X-E1) and 5 lenses (XF 16/1.4, XF 27/2.8, XF 35/1.4, XF 18-55/2.8-4 and XC 50-230/4.5-6.7).

I used to own Canon 30D and 40D and 5 different lenses, but I would have to check if I still have any SOOC jpegs at home.

I don't have a huge amount of images in RAW format. I uploaded a sample to your dropbox.

 

Cheers!

I'll see if I can take some pictures this very weekend, as varied as possible. I have a Nikon D3000.

Best regards!

Oh, I like to speculate: Only unprocessed files from cameras are wanted, because you do not want to loose internal metadata like maker notes and you want to get real raw data instead of some linear DNGs or similiar. This is usefull for:

1) Testing and improving the raw engine (Needed for Demosaicing, Noise Reduction, Lens Correction, Lens Sharpness, etc). Also needed for regression and performance tests to measure how development goes.

2) Implementing a DAM / LR like tool, which imports OOC JPEGs and RAWs. (Here especially the preview generation and metadata extraction could be tested). If I would develop this, I would use LibRaw for previews and an ExifTool wrapper for metadata.

Cold, Warm or Hot? :-)
