I will have to check this out. Only recently upgraded from a 7 to 12 Pro Max. I have had the phone for a couple of weeks and yet to take one photo with it. :) I upgraded my Apple watch at the same time.

As much as I have read and heard, it's something between the classical RAW as we know it and a better JPG.
It is processed by the phone already...

Kind regards

Format is DNG which allows for additional "out of phone" processing for "when you get home".....:cigar:
Sure Panther,
but it seems not that pure DNG (RAW) as we know it. I mean the data directly from the sensor.

Please let me know, when I'm wrong.

I read somewhere that standard RAW straight from sensor is very grainy so ProRAW is a processed format to make the image more useable. The advantage of ProRAW is better dynamic range.

I went for a wander last night to check out the neighbours Christmas Lights.

I took the phone along and fired off a few images. What I have found so far, RAW is off when the camera is opened, touching the RAW button enables it. IBIS looks like it works fine in low light. I can view the images I took on the phone, I can email them, post them on social media, etc., but cannot open the files when I plug the phone into my work Windows computer. The files sent from the phone are JPEG, however viewing the files on the phone, or tablet, etc., they have a RAW watermark on the screen

Over the weekend I will download them to my photo editing computer and see if LR can open them.
