    Hi,

    New to this forum. What is the output file that is produced by the camera on the phone? Is it a simple jpeg? Is there a RAW file available also?

    I will have to copy the images to my laptop and work on them with 3rd party software. I want to know if I need any additional software.

    Many thanks in advance,

    Mike

    .jpg is standard. RAW is available in the camera settings if you want that

    Excellent! Thanks Shaw.
    Have you processed any of the raw files?

    Nope I'm not a photo expert. I just stick with the standard jpg. The settings state that if you enable RAW it will save as both jpg and RAW.

    Hey!

    The Note7 saves photos in a compressed JPEG by default. However, you can also have it save both a compressed JPEG and a raw DNG file while shooting in the Pro mode.

    JPEG photos usually have post-processing applied to them by the camera software already, so they're ready for sharing. DNG photos are just the raw images captured by the sensor, but because they have a ton of information, they are much better for editing in photo apps like Snapseed and Lightroom, both of which support DNG editing.

    Personally, I keep that option enabled, as when I'm in the Pro mode, I'm likely going to be spending quite a bit of time getting the perfect shot.

    Thanks D13,
    That is exactly what I wanted to know. I work on camera files for a living. I was curious about the raw aspect. Do they come out of camera with the .dng setting?
    Also, what card reader are you using?

    Thanks,

    You have to use a file manager to get the RAW files since they don't show up in the Gallery.

    I actually use Lightroom and Snapseed on the device itself to edit the RAW files.

    And I don't actually use a card reader. I just snag them off the device itself.

    Yeah, give that a shot.

    Takes a bit of getting used to, but once you do, you'll love the results when you are able to tweak the photo to how you want it to be.
