What are raw .DNG files and why do they matter? Now in photography RAW is an umbrella term for uncompressed images that usually professional photographers use for best results with editing. The other big advantage coming with DNG files usually storing original sensor information with unaltered color saturation and white balance. We have reached out to Nokia to confirm whether the DNG images from the Lumias will indeed store unaltered original sensor info.
Now, Nokia’s camera guru Juha Alakarhu broke the news that both the Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520 will be able to capture images in DNG, great for those who plan on doing some more fine-tuning and editing post-capture, isn’t it?
