I'm currently using CHDK's DNG 1.3-format for RAWs, but it is limited to 10-bit? Someone in this forum wrote that the sensor is 12-bit for this camera? Should I use CHDK RAW to get access to full bit depth? Is it then possible to get those RAWs to Lightroom with 12-bit via some method?
Closest Lightroom lens correction profile I found is for 310HS, but it looks different than JPEG even though it looks better than no correction at all. There is a way to extract default lens correction method from the firmware or someone has the profile for 300HS?
When I open DNGs in Lightroom 4.4, colors look very saturated compared to camera's JPEG colors. There is more color information preserved with RAWs, but still those colors look way overdone. How can I fix this?
RAW has more noise than JPEG because camera doesn't do any noise reduction for RAW. What kind of noise reduction method I should use? There is better ways than Lightroom noise reduction?
