Recommendations Android RAW Viewers?

Would like to view RAW photos on my Android phone.


Did a search using key words "Android RAW viewers" both with and without "..." but got nothing.



Appreciate any recommendations!


Thanks


Ken

It's unlikely any CHDK created RAW image files will display on an Android device.  But viewing CHDK created DNG formatted images should be quite possible.  Did you search for DNG format image viewers?

Edit : this link  Best Android apps for: DNG viewer says Snapseed will display DNG files. And it's actually the photo editor I use on my mobile phone anyway!  Also, File Viewer for Android might be worth a look - it claims to display DNG images.

waterwingz,


Thanks for the 2 links.


The latest ver 3.0.2 of "File Viewer for Android" only supports Android 5.0 & newer.  I installed it on a phone with 6 and tried some NEF photos and everything OK.


A friend has a Samsung Note 3 with Android 4.4 so checked earlier vers & downloaded ver 1.0.3. We loaded it on the Note 3 and tried same NEF photos also OK.


I have not used CHDK for a while because my latest Canon P&S is Not supported. 


Did search for "CHDK RAW photos" and found some at https://chdk.fandom.com/wiki/Samples:_RAW


Is there a way I can download them? 


Also is there a website where I can download CHDK RAW photos?


Thanks again for your help!


Ken

This site has CHDK DNG and raw files among others.

srsa_4c,


Thanks for the link!


"Canon (CHDK): Both the old-style CRW, and new DNG" 


Any recommendations concerning CRW photos?

If you mean CHDK CRW files (which are just frame buffer dumps, not in the actual Canon CRW format), my recommendation is: Don't use them.

Outside of some corner cases, there's really no reason to prefer them over DNG, and a lot of reasons not to.

Since this is the CHDK forum (and specifically the CHDK raw sub forum), it's likely waterwingz thought you were asking about DNG viewers specifically for CHDK. You're welcome to ask here, but for non-CHDK use, you might get better advice on android / smartphone photography forums.
Don't forget what the H stands for.
