p.1 #1 · Cheap P&S raw shooter ($35)


Just for fun I picked up a Canon A1200 P&S refurb for $35 during Canon's last online sale. Loaded CHDK onto it (http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK) and tried some raw (.DNG) shooting. Here's my first raw snapshot, corrected for some insane barrel distortion at the wide end and processed quite a bit in LR4 to test how well the raw images hold up to some tonal abuse.

I thought for the briefest moment about getting one and then realized I'd never carry it anywhere. If it's worth photographing, it's worth dragging the SLR. Everything else gets the phone.

Some more samples. Turns out the A1200 doesn't have a controllable aperture on its lens, so it's f/2.8 and forget it! (well, it's variable aperture based on focal length).
