Samsung Galaxy s6: Update On Android 5.1.1 Has Difficulties With Raw Photos

Since yesterday, the German users of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge update to Android 5.1.1 get delivered. It should support photos in DNG format, but this won’t work with all DNG enabled apps.

Samsung distributes the update to Android 5.1.1 for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge since the beginning of the week. It improved among other things the

camera2 interface so that the Smartphones can take photos in raw format. That it will not work with the built-in photo app from Samsung is indeed annoying, but, after all, already known by users who have tried the update with other international versions of the S6.

You will need an alternative camera app with support for DNG, but with the German version of the 5.1.1 not all play together the DNG enabled apps. Only banned snap camera DNG files on the device, and the app L camera available in the play store, still experimental and on Github. The app manual camera (including the Diagnostics app from the same manufacturer) says that S6 would support no RAWS. Camera FV-5 although offers the option to save DNGs, but we have found no DNG afterwards.

Be sure test DNG app before buying

FV-5 camera wants to can take Although DNGs after the update, but we have found it on the device anyway, anywhere. It is currently unclear whether the problem is related to the two different camera chips of the S6, if an update of the apps helps or whether the German firmware requires an update. Interestingly, some blogs reported that the US version of the S6 works perfectly with manual camera.

All these apps, there is also a free trial-which to try, seems to be currently recommended, if you want to elicit his mobile raw photos before making a purchase.

Google has introduced the new camera interface camera2 with Android 5, which implements a hardware independent way of, inter alia, to take raw photos. But the raw support is not required for the device manufacturer, long time not every mobile phone with Android 5 implements it. Known raw support Google’s Nexus 6, LG G4, HTC one M9, Panasonic Lumix and shut the Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 edge with Android 5.1.1. Some few phones have a proprietary raw built option before, including the Panasonic Lumix (with Android 4.4) and the OnePlus one.
