What are RAW images?
When an image is captured on a standard smartphone it is automatically processed to balance colors and lighting levels, then compressed into a JPEG or DNG format to take up less memory. This compression process removes some of the finer details of the image.
RAW images are saved with no processing or compression. This is very useful for most photographers because they can then process and balance the image themselves. They can also print the image in much larger sizes and still maintain a high level of detail, since the image has not been compressed.
Note: The LG V20 cannot display RAW images itself. When you capture a RAW image, the phone makes a copy which it processes and compresses as normal, and that is the image it will display. RAW images must be transferred to and viewed on a computer.
RAW image capture can only be used in the Manual camera configuration. To enable this feature, switch to the Manual mode, tap the Settings icon, then tap the Save as RAW switch to turn it on.
What do the Manual camera controls do?
WB (White Balance) allows you to adjust the warmth of your image colors, to compensate for various lighting conditions.
FOCUS gives you manual control of the camera focal distance.
EV (Exposure Variance) adjusts the exposure of the image to compensate for backlighting.
ISO adjusts how much light the sensor absorbs: higher settings are brighter, but grainier.
S (Shutter) allows manual control of the shutter speed: a slower speed captures more light, a higher speed prevents blurring from motion.
AE-L (Auto Exposure-Lock) freezes the current exposure levels and aperture settings, for keeping consistent exposure levels between images.
What is the battery size?
Your phone has a 3200mAh battery.
Why is my LG V20™ battery life inconsistent?
How fast your battery runs down depends on what you do on your LG V20. Features like Bluetooth®, GPS, games and web browsing put more strain on the battery than simple features like email and text messages.
