It's a gorgeous fall day out today, and I couldn't keep myself from snapping a photo with some natural light, coffee, and greenery in it.
What you might not notice unless I mentioned it though, is how much more detailed this particular iPhone photo is -that's because it was shot in RAW. (full-resolution Flickr mirror here)
RAW support was added in iOS 10 a week or two ago, but my initial tests on my iPhone 7 Plus didn't go so well. Capturing in one program would lead to desaturated colors in the output, I couldn't get the full-Rez file to display correctly when finished editing - my opinion before today was that it was a bit of an unfinished mess.
Then upon waking up this morning I saw that Lightroom had been updated to take advantage of both the 7 Plus's cameras & had been optimized for their RAW output. Good stuff. And surely enough - so are the photos.
I don't know about you guys, but I'll take a grainy & detailed photo with awesome dynamic range over a smoothed over and even one any day. So I'm having a field day with the iPhone 7 Plus's sensor output. Just look at the detail and grain in my hand, the coffee, and those plants. It's nearly film-like! Magnifique!
That's all for now, but more to come soon.
