Nokia's Lumia Black software update is a major one for Lumia 1020 users who can now save images as lossless RAW files in DNG format.
AT&T began rolling out the software update today for Nokia Lumia 1020 and Nokia Lumia 1520 devices in the U.S.
Amongst the most notable changes for photographers is the addition of the Nokia Camera app, formerly exclusive to Nokia's new Lumia 1520 phablet and Lumia 2520 tablet. The app takes the best of the Nokia Smart Camera and Nokia Pro Camera apps and adds the ability to save photos as "RAW," or lossless DNG files.
Additional new features include:
To check for the Lumia Black update on your Lumia 1020 or Lumia 1520 from the start screen scroll down to and tap “Settings” > “About” > “More Info.” If the firmware revision matches the revision number listed in the “New Software Specifications” section below, then the device has the latest software available.
The Lumia Black update will start rolling out to other Nokia Lumia owners around the world in early 2014.
