We’ve know that RAW image support was coming to the HTC One M9 from day one, but it had yet to make it way into the final software. Thankfully, a new update to the HTC Camera app is finally bringing Raw capture to the One M9, where it will be found as a photo mode in the camera app.

One of the star features for the HTC One M9 is supposed to be its rear camera, which finally moves away from the UltraPixel setup of the M7 and M8. Unfortunately, poor post processing and other issues have led to an arguably somewhat lackluster experience. With access to RAW images, however, third party programs and just everyday photo enthusiasts might be able to edit the files themselves with the aim of creating better images.

Raw image support is obviously the biggest change here, but there’s also some minor changes effecting some other HTC devices as well. Here’s the changelog, for those interested:

  • Raw Camera mode, only available on the HTC One M9
  • Crop-Me-In mode, only available on the HTC One (M8 EYE) running Android 5.0 Lollipop and the HTC Desire EYE
  • Adjustable divider in Split Capture mode
  • Add and remove camera modes

To grab the latest version of the HTC Camera app, you’ll want to head on over to Google Play.
