    Morning All,

    Got my Note 8 last Wednesday. My last Android powered phone was the HTC Desire HD. Since then I've had iPhones so I'm still re-educating myself.

    Has anyone noticed any weird behavior when vewing RAW images?

    - Pictures were originally taken on a Nikon D5300 (uses NEF extension for RAW images)
    - Pictures were then copied to my Note8 from my laptop via USB
    - I#m using the Samsung Gallery App to view then on the phone
    - Images are on a SanDisk Ultra memory card (same problem if they are stored on the phone though)

    If I view one of the RAW images and zoom in they are not pin sharp and a bit distorted/out of focus.

    If I click the filter icon (the one with the 3 overlapping rings) I can see the image become sharper. If I then apply one of the default filers from within the gallery app and save the image it remains pin sharp and completely in focus.

    Anyone else noticed this?

    Yes I noticed this too. I thought it was just the way it saved the photo to save space? I'm not sure.

    Even when posting the photos online tho, it seems they aren't as crystal clear as I had thought they'd be. Maybe I'm missing a setting?
