Android 5.1.1 update brings RAW function to Galaxy S6 camera

Taking your phone photography skills to the next level? Users of the Samsung Galaxy S6 will soon have the capability to shoot RAW on the Android 5.1.1 update — just like with DSLRs.



People have been expecting this feature to arrive with the Android Lollipop 5.1 update, but were disappointed after seeing that there was no such option. It turns out that Samsung is planning to unlock this added function when 5.1.1 rolls out. With it, users can now go as low as 50 ISO on its manual camera settings which is the lowest that most DSLRs can normally go. Manual control over the sensor’s shutter speed is also possible.

It’s also been reported that for the features to work, a Galaxy S6 is needed with a camera app “that has full support for Lollipop’s Camera2 API.” All these manual settings and improved capabilities would add nicely to our 5 Tips to Improve Smartphone Photos article.
