The news has been announced by Google spokesperson Gina Scigliano, who said: "Android's latest camera HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) and framework supports raw and burst-mode photography. We will expose a developer API in a future release to expose more of the HAL functionality." RAW support will allow users to create professional-style photos by using photo editors, just like people who snap photos with a DSLR can.

 

Sure, it won't be as good as using a DSLR camera, but RAW support will only be embraced, not pushed away.
