I have a samsung galaxy and it has a brilliant screen. I would love to use it to review photos taken on a DSLR while out and about but I haven't managed to find any way to view RAW images in android. My camera is a canon so I guess it would need to have specific support for cacnon's raw format.

Are there any photographers here that can recommend some apps?

Searching the Market, I found RawDroid Demo. It says it'll open raw files from DSLRs including Canon. I haven't tried it and it doesn't seem to have many downloads, so I'm not sure if it will work.

Fantastic! Will try that thank you! –  barrymac Jun 3 '11 at 13:26
Cool it was added to the market yesterday! :-) –  barrymac Jun 3 '11 at 13:31
Just for completion, at the point of writing RawDroid is basically a batch converter from raw to jpg. You can then view the jpgs in the usual way. It's a very first release however and I'm sure the app will be updated to have more functionality in future –  barrymac Jun 23 '11 at 9:15

I just released a raw viewer for Android.

It has a very basic importing tool (it's something that I did for myself to be able to review the pictures in a bigger screen) but the best thing is that it can be used as one of the possible actions for images from your favorite filebrowser.

It's name is Rawpal Gallery. You can find it in the market: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.rawpal.gallery

I will apreciate any comment or sugestion.
