What am I doing here? I found I was pulling back the curtain on the Wizard of Oz. At the pixel level the RAW tif (yes RAWS are compressed tifs) can only have a luminance value and a color value. All the countless sliders you see in software con only manipulate those things. Keep that in mind.
Keep this in mind. It's called a converter for a reason. It converts data from one state to another. It's all raster data. You want to call it a tiff? Call it tiff. It's pointless because a tiff is nothing but a raster mapping of data. Your OS video system's frame buffer is a raster of data as well. Do you want to call your video card a raster tiff generator? What's the point?
You know what raster means, right? You have an X/Y table mapping within a 2:3/3:4 ratio rectangle of every tiny square pixel of various luminance, the variation determined by the RGGB filtering of photons collected to create an electrical charge. That charge is assigned a voltage measurement. IT'S NOT EVEN A SQUARE PIXEL OF COLOR at this stage. A/D converter takes those charges that represent a luminance level (some of those are clumps of noise) and converts it to 1's and 0's where IT'S STILL NOT A PIXEL OR TIFF.
It's all interpreted by software! You are looking at a concoction of software that happens to generate an image that pleases you. You've just decided to pick what stage of interpretation is the most true according to what you see on your display.
That texture of noise I see in your first sample close up crop I've seen duplicated in ACR's Grain panel just by twiddling sliders long enough to find it.
