Shooting RAW dng files with the iPhone 6s and Adobe Lightroom Mobile

As of the 13 September with the new version of the iOS operating system, the iPhone now can shoot RAW dng files. For those who don't know what that is, it is the digital version of a negative.  

The image retains all of the information from the brightest points down to the darkest shadows. With RAW you can bring the details out from these areas.  

As mobile phones are used for a large majority of photography these days, it is a huge step forward (and yes android users have had this for some time!) 

i went for a run this morning and took some test shots with my iPhone and did the post production on the phone with Lightroom mobile. There maybe some noise and grain in the images but remember that these are taken with an iPhone!

New Camera Test

For my birthday last month, my beautiful wife, bought me a new camera, a Fujifilm X-E1. I had some old manual Olympus lenses from my father in law, and with the aid of a 10 euro adapter they just pop on. It is totally different from my other cameras as it is all totally manual, no auto-focus too which makes for interesting times trying to photograph the kids!

 

Still it is a fun little camera and delivers some great images in full RAW format (digital negatives) and is a lot smaller than my Canon DSLR. Mirrorless cameras are making a real impact at the moment with some fantastic cameras coming from Fuji, Sony, Panasonic and Olympus. They range in price from about 400 to 1700 Euros but there arealways deals to be found on sites such as ebay.
