Re: Re-evaluating my photography… can an iPhone work?


I've carried an iPhone together with Sony (A7, A7ii, then A7C) for years.

iPhone is like a camera stuck in AUTO mode. It's better than nothing, but ...

You have no control over exposure settings.

It doesn't produce RAW files, and sometimes the JPEGs (HEIC) are awful, especially in low-light, so forget about post-processing.

The ergonomics are horrible.

The flash is very low-powered, can't bounce.

It runs out of battery during a long day way before the camera does.

It doesn't shoot in normal 3:2 aspect ratio.

It takes an extra second to go into shooting mode, not as good as instant On/Off on the real camera.

It lacks mode buttons and memory pre-set buttons, so you waste time fiddling between different modes.

Sometimes you'll get a decent photo, but it's hit-and-miss.
