The app’s announcement put up says the Expert RAW app can shoot in lossless JPEG and 16-bit Linear DNG RAW codecs. GSMArena stories each produce photographs that profit from multi-frame HDR processing, however that the latter presents the flexibility you get when modifying a RAW picture file. Just make sure to use an app like Lightroom to edit the DNG file as a result of common photograph apps like Google Photos will strip out its HDR and different post-processing.
We’ve contacted Samsung for more details about the app, together with when it is perhaps made out there for the S21 and S21 Plus or whether or not its options may ultimately make their means into the inventory Samsung app.
