Saturation level in DCRAW

Quote from: Guillermo Luijk
what do you mean by XYZ scaling? XYZ is an intermediate colour space to which images are converted prior to final conversion to sRGB, Adobe RGB. In fact I think DCRAw multiplies the RGB -> XYZ and XYZ -> output colour profile matrices to do the conversion in a single step.

The only scaling applied is when white balancing, and that is donde in the RGB Bayer domain, even before demosaicing.
I mean -o 5 option on conversion for XYZ output.

Maybe Elle Stone is doing (part of) just this with her modification of dcraw:

(4) Increase the precision of the camera matrix primaries by changing the data type from integer to floating.
   I doubt the increased precision will be visually apparent, but why not - it was an easy change."

Good light - Hening.
