Samsung Galaxy S6 and Edge receive Raw support with 5.1 update

Samsung has done some great work with its flagships optics since the release of the Samsung Galaxy S5. When the device was first released back in 2014, many took note of the stunning pictures that could be captured using the Samsung Galaxy S5. Fastforward to 2015 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 has only expanded on its predecessors success with an updated aperture lens and optical image stabilization. Not content with only those features though, Samsung has also added Raw support for the camera of the Samsung Galaxy S6 that will allow you to capture images in their full, uncompressed glory. Also included in the update are lower ISO values that match those on commercially available digital cameras.

There is a small catch, however. When Sammobile reported that the Samsung Galaxy S6 would have RAW support, they were under the impression that it would be accessible via the stock camera app. Well, the update came and went with no signs of RAW support or the ISO values. Sammobile was quick to realize that the support was in fact there, just not via the stock app.

So for all of you happy Samsung Galaxy S6 owners who have updated your device to the latest firmware, you will need to download a third-party app that has been optimized to use Lollipops Camera2 API. Not a hard task to complete as most of the popular camera apps were quick to update to include this feature.
