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


You can do a lot with an iPhone, but it can’t replace a big sensor camera yet. They just are not there. The stock camera app on the iPhone with the stock processing produces some good images sometimes, but goes way too strong on the noise reduction smearing followed by sharpening. It’s the thing I hate so much about the iPhone camera. Night mode can do some really nice things to get a useable image in the dark, but Apple makes a lot of choice for you on how it looks.

Apple introduced the ProRAW format a few years back in the stock camera app that is basically a pre edited raw, but contains all of the data behind the scenes you can adjust. These result in like 25MB files on my 13Pro and around 60-80MB files on the new 14 pro. I don’t want a lot of these on my phone taking space. To fix a lot of issues, you can pick up a third party app like Halide, which offers a ton of improvements with waveforms, iso adjustment, manual focus dials, shutter speed and such. They can also use compressed, regular RAW, or Apple ProRAW. Plus they can capture depth data to store for editing. If you want, you can adjust depth data and edit the distances using an app like Focos.
