    I'm processing some images taken by a friend who used the STF8300C. Does anyone know what the bayer matrix pattern is for the camera?
    Thanks
    Dave

    Dave,

    Type "Bayer Matrix" into the Search box and find Doug's post from May 21st on this very topic. The text of which is pasted below.

    "The Bayer matrix is fundamentally the same in these sensors. At most you may have to adjust the color balance - which you really should do anyway.

    I can't speak in detail about third-party software that we've not evaluated, but the conversion algorithm for ST-2000 should work okay.

    Here is some information on how to measure your color balance and correct it: http://www.cyanogen.com/help/maximdl/Color_Balance.htm You should be able to achieve something similar with your software."

    Ok thanks Bill. From that post looks like it's RGGB

    Actually it turns out for this camera BGGR leads to the correct result

    Great Dave, I'm glad you were able to get it figured out.

    When trying to determine which Bayer conversion method to use in a given software package, is it valid to take a picture during the day and try different conversion methods to see which produces the most natural results? Or is there something different about daytime pictures that would cause a different Bayer conversion to be needed compared to a nighttime picture?

    That's a perfectly good technique. Recommended in fact.
