NicolasRobidoux,
I agree with your finds, looks like you found the best neutral/balanced option... Image

Re: [SOLVED] Donate a high quality raw image to science?

Henry: Bruno George Moraes (Brazilian embedded systems software engineer with an interest in image processing) is really impressed by the main demosaicing method of http://www.my-spot.com/RHC/RHC_Demosiac.htm . Good links about RAW demosaicing algorithms http://www.libraw.org/articles/bayer-moire.h...

Re: best downsampling method for DSLR photographs

Henry and Luiz and whoever else feels like testing and posting opinions: Could you please let me know what you think of EWA Lanczos2Sharpest, Lanczos3Sharpest and Lanczos4Sharpest as downsampling schemes, ideally through linear light? Sorry for the delay, I need to set my forum options to monitor t...

Re: best downsampling method for DSLR photographs

Kaiser3 seems to give good results. I'll see what comes out of Adam's thesis, and will think about optimizing taking "2D" explicitly into account (like I did with LanczosSharp, LanczosSharpest, Robidoux, RobidouxSharp...). My curiosity about Kaiser is that I read somewhere it may be better than Lan...

But I am still friend to orthogonal Lanczos/Mitchell and the “moiréless” 4 lobes thing... :)

Re: best downsampling method for DSLR photographs

Indeed, the sharper the source, the less sharp the downsizer should be. If we have some algorithm to evaluate the sharpness, can we have some automatic calculation for "b" like f(source_sharpness, user_preferred_sharpness)? Although a user is likely to fairly quickly figure out what b they like in ...

Re: best downsampling method for DSLR photographs

EWA-Lagrange looks like a less sharp EWA-Catroom and I prefer EWA-Lancozs3 and EWA-Mitchell over EWA-SincSinc2, how would be a good command line for kaiser?

Re: best downsampling method for DSLR photographs

This topic is gold, thanks guys! The backpack, I prefer the linear light version, but the windmill nobody likes the house bricks in the linear light version... :lol: I am enjoying the sharpness of EWA Catrom, sadly it is not 100% moiré free as we can see in the backpack center strip and in the house...
