Photography buffs rejoice! Nokia releases DNG color profiles for the Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520
Earlier today, Nokia released DNG color profiles for the Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520, and we've got to say we were impressed with the showcased results.

Those of you scratching your heads right about now, take note. A while back, it was made known that Nokia has, as promised, added support for true .DNG raw files for its two most trendy models. These relatively gigantic files contain a lot of information about your snaps, like exposure settings, which you can later tweak with professional software. According to the Nokia Conversations blog, Nokian photography hobbyists and professionals alike have collaboratively come out with several DNG color profiles that will help you get the best results under several distinct scenarios. There's a flash, fluorescent and daylight-halogen profiles, with each best applied according to the appropriate scenario. In other words, you're advised to use the flash profile for pictures where you know you've used flash, and so on and so forth. A sample has been provided by said Nokians, and it speaks for itself.


Once again, these will only work with the Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520 (which are, not at all accidentally, the only two models that offer .DNG support), and the profiles are to be used within Adobe's Lightroom suite. More profiles could come, but Juha Alakarhu, head of imaging technologies at Nokia, refused to give out any promises:


If you're interested, you can download the color profiles for the Lumia 1020 from here, and the ones for the Lumia 1520 from here. If you're not sure what to do with these, then go right here and read up on Adobe's official guide.
