Two (not) identical A590IS

I have two A590IS cameras, both with the same FW version, the same settings, CHDKs etc. So I have made remote USB controll and I do 3d photos with SDM. But now - even if I set everything the same on both cameras (f, time, WB, ISO) both photos are slightly different as you can see

Everything ( but clock :) ) is set the same, and the photos are not the same. For me it looks, that WB is not the same, but it is as EXIF says :) So probably it is sensor issue, not fixable at home. But I have CHDK and I could probably use curves correction - but how? How to discover proper curve shape? Is there any tool which could calculate it? Or only set&try method?

The images are not accessible to me (I just get shown this page http://hotlink.friko.pl/3.jpg), but I see that the camera orientation is not the same - one camera is upside down (because you are using an SDM rig?). What happens if both cameras have the same orientation?

Here are images:

Yes - the cameras orientation is different, because I use SDM rig. And I must confess that I haven't tried to do some photos without it, so I don't know if it is the cause :)
But even if so, it is not a solution for me, because mounting them in the same orientation, makes the distance between lenses bigger, what is not good for stereophotography - A590 body is not symmetrical :/
So maybe there is still hope in CHDK curves? :) Or some other feature?

First of all, that is a difficult subject to capture on a point-and-shoot camera.

You have white snow and a very dark statue, it is almost black-and -white.

They look OK to me.

If you wish, load them into StereoPhoto maker (SPM) and select Adjust\Auto Color Adjust.
Choose left or right image as reference, SPM will try to adjust the other image to match.

I can't see the photos either, but if the reason is different WB, you may get improved result using custom WB mode instead of the "Sunny" preset. The camera fine tunes white balance in all preset modes, but not in custom mode.

Also, you may be able to find Canon's WB coefficients from JPEG EXIF:

No go, I get the same hotlink images zeno does, possibly because I refuse scripts for safety.

@fudgey
can't see them in Firefox, but I just tried Safari and it shows them. As you say, security checking must have been preventing it in Firefox.
