Details from Google I/O last week about Android's plans for a camera app update in its next OS release were thin. Now with a developer preview of the new OS available, more information has emerged about what we can expect from Android's camera capabilities.

Android 'L' as it is called at the moment is available as a developer preview.

Android Police has taken a look at the developer documentation and found that Android L will allow for Raw DNG image capture. Other new features include performance updates that will make faster burst shooting possible at full resolution and a host of other controls such as:

  • Exposure time
  • ISO sensitivity
  • JPEG metadata
  • AE/AWB lock
  • Exposure compensation

Read more about the updates at Android Police. Android L is expected to make its full public debut in late 2014, in the meantime the developer preview is available for download
