The issue is that in the FP3 the camera had 48MPs which were tied to a bayer array and could only output 12MPx.
In the FP4 each photosite can be processed separately hence the 48MPs gives 48MPx in selected situations. The output can be much smaller depending on a) user selection and b) what is offered by the software.
Of course I can’t really see any of the real detail, this is all hearsay.
@Phragmites should be the case to ask to the NGCam project to implement such a thing? I sent a message to NGcam cahnnel, maybe I will send another one to the general GCam. It would be pretty interesting creating a fork/XML config for Fairphone btw!
PS. I’ve just realized someone took already initiative
Call me “stupid”: but I have tried to take pictures with the FP4 / OpenCamera / RAW(DNG) settings. And they come out REALLY flat. Tried to import them in Capture One, but could not find any matching camera settings; and ACDSee also was no big help (I was able to get some color by maximizing the saturation - but even then the colors were too muted).
How does one get the colors straight for the DNG-files?
@Phragmites What happened in the end to your ticket about being able to save RAW images on the FP4?
I got my FP4 last week and see a lot of potential for the phone to have a great camera with flexibiity for the user. I am actually really interested in putting together a list of feature requests for the stock camera on FP4
Hi @chilllitang . I’ve not heard anything back about that ticket, sadly. I’ve been using Open Camera and Adobe Lightroom Mobile to save the RAW files for editing on my computer and occasionally on my phone. I prefer their camera controls to the default camera anyway, so it’s not a big deal.
