When U Want to Do it RAW
When you take a photograph on your smartphone, it usually captures in JPEG format – which is fine for everyday pictures since it produces decent-quality pictures with small file sizes. But the JPEG format tends to compress the images, resulting in a loss of data that limits the amount of adjustments you can do with the image.
An image captured in RAW, on the other hand, may be 10x larger than a JPEG file but has all of its image data retained. You get more control over the image’s contrast, colours, shadows, and highlights when using a RAW image processing application. RAW is also very useful for photographers when you’re taking pictures in an environment with varied lighting situations, allowing you to fine-tune the images during post-production.
The HTC U Ultra is one of the very few smartphones in the market capable of capturing RAW images, giving enthusiast photographers unprecedented control over their photos.
