Some software, like Photoshop Elements, can correct barrel distortion. If you know the percentage of distortion (for any given focal length, it's inside the JPEG, in the EXIF info) you can build a table of how much correction to apply. Just take pictures of a white peg-board with pin-striping, you can build knowledge of how much correction (barrel and even pincushion) to apply.

Does anyone have information on the correction profile for the S3? If so, you can save me an afternoon of shooting work to figure this out.

The first time I saw barrel distortion (neighbor's borrowed digicam) I couldn't believe it. Straight archways in a house were curved terribly.

I was so happy to find out I could correct this in software! But I don't know how much correction to use.

Does anyone have correction information compiled for the S3 yet?

I could also correct the horrible shots I made when I borrowed my neighbor's digicam the last few years.

Anybody have the info for the S3? Other cameras?
