Android 5.1.1: RAW support and lower ISO values
As expected, the international Android 5.1.1 update delivered support for RAW images and lower ISO values. Samsung didn't make the changes public, though, perhaps because they are not available via the stock camera or gallery app. If you want to shoot in RAW format and view images later, you'll need a third-party solution such as Camera FV-5 and Adobe Lightroom.Camera FV-5 Lite
