I am looking to get some Raw images in Cannon- CR2/CRW; Nikon- *.NEF ; or Adobe DNG- *.DNG files.

I am looking to process them using some post-processing tool like Lightroom and want to test a few image processing tools provided in it, hence looking to get these raw images from publicly available raw image content.

From dcraw's FAQ:

Where can I get an assortment of raw photos to test my software?

Try raw.fotosite.pl, www.rawsamples.ch, and Glass Lantern RAWpository. A "full review" at Imaging Resource usually includes a few raw shots. For the complete dcraw test suite (every camera supported by dcraw), I sell a 3-DVD set for $700 and web-based updates for $300/year.

Apart from pointers given by asalamon74, for many,good raw images here is what I found: http://www.cs.tut.fi/~foi/sensornoise.html

Also one of the URL mentioned my asalamon74 was broken, here is the working/cached version:

Hi goldenmean. The best way to correct broken URLs and other typo-mistakes other people's posts is just to edit them, or to make a comment on that post. Thanks. –  mattdm Apr 27 '11 at 14:39
