    So can all the Apps that got access to the "41MP" photos also use the DNG photos? (phriz.be, AT&T locker, etc...)

    DNG photos are RAW images, not meant to be accessed by those services. Digital negative allows you to define the settings and basically "develop" your digital photo.

    You can rename your 34 MP .jpg, then access that via those services.

    Yeah, I understand what they are, but why just because they are DNG/RAW would we not want to have the ability to email them somewhere straight from the device?

    You have to rename them from a PC, correct? Kind of pointless if that's the case, ya know?

    I gotcha, I haven't tried yet with the new update.

    That is a good point, wasn't thinking of that.

    While I agree that it would be good to have more flexibility with DNGs overall, trying to send a 41MP DNG via email probably isn't going to work for most users anyways. The file size is roughly 40MB, which far exceeds (most) email services maximum file attachment size. Even if your mail provider allows 50MB (like mail.com), most recipients, like those on Gmail, Outlook and Yahoo, will just bounce the message back.

    Definitely true - but you never know. I think the access to these files will come in 8.1 when there will apparently be some form of File Manager. At that point, it will also likely be easier to upload them to SkyDrive and share the link straight from your phone.

    Good point. Totally forgot about email file size limitations.
