The Canon PowerShot S3 IS is fitted with a Digic II image processor, the same type included in last year’s S2. The new S3 has a different image sensor with more resolution though, which could affect the camera’s ability to accurately record colors. To test this, we snapped several exposures of a GretagMacbeth color chart. This chart consists of 24 colored tiles and is used by many imaging professionals to standardize what colors should look like.
