Samsung Galaxy S7 How to record images in RAW format

The powerful camera of the Samsung Galaxy S7 offers you many possibilities hitherto only expensive cameras were withheld. Namely, it involves the option to record photos in RAW format.

The RAW format is the uncompressed version of an image. In contrast, a JPEG is a compressed version of a photo. During compression of photos details are always lost, which can be detrimental, especially in the post-production. In the RAW format the photo remains exactly as it was recorded by the camera. Therefore, the image size is many times larger than it is the case with JPEGs here.
