Nokia is constantly trying to improve its flagship cameras and also, at the same time, re-confirm its position as a leader in imaging technology and innovation with its smartphones. Currently, the Lumia 1020 is considered by many to be the best camera on a smartphone, and the Lumia 1520, coming shortly to AT&T, will bring a similar experience to a phablet form factor.
We’ve been hearing about RAW image output functionality from Nokia’s flagship camera phones for quite some time, and today, the Finns have updated their Nokia Camera app to support just that. The change log is rather simple: “Support for DNG capture (Digital Negative Format) on the Lumia 1520 and 1020 running the Lumia Black software update”. However, there’s a glitch: while the Lumia 1520 will be available with the Black package out of the box, the Lumia 1020 is still yet to receive the refresh. This simply means that, while the Nokia Camera app supports DNG output, the OS on the 1020 does not, yet.
