Thank you so much jst13. I took a look at your photos on Flickr - they are a joy to look at.

I am a fairly experienced photographer and I am looking for a DSLR-like app for iPhone XS Max that would of course feature DNG support. Can you advise?

Thanks--

Halide and Moment are considered the best. However, shooting in RAW is a waste of time IMO. The images off my 11 pro looked dull in RAW, as they usually do. It takes too much time to sit there messing with each one in LR just to get it to match the way the JPG looks SOOC. I'll take the slightly over sharpened JPGs off the stock camera. The DR is also much better when I compare images taken in the stock app vs Halide or Moment. Im sure this is because the stock app takes multiple shots and combines them to give you the best DR and Deep Fusion is awesome. You dont get that shooting in RAW with a 3rd party camera app. The only time I ever use Halide is when there is a tricky lighting situation and I need to take control over my shutter speed and ISO, but that was only maybe a handful of times with my XS Max and 11 pro is even better at reading a scene, doubt I'll need it.

Thank you Dexter. I appreciate what you said about taking photos as processed by Apple. However, very often, I wish to achieve results that Apple software would not be able to anticipate and I am not after realistic and attractive-looking landscape or flower etc. I often use the image as a starting point for further processing. That is why I need RAW.

Thanks again

Pavel

Ok. You may want to check out this thread for more info and comparisons on the stock camera and shooting RAW with 3rd party apps.

Pavel, how you are going to process the DNG with phone or PC?

Lightroom mobil is my preferred App for iphones below the version 11....for the 11 pro apples nativ output is better then any RAW App can produce up to now..

but for your phone LR mobile is the best if you use Lightroom in generell otherwise i would go with camera pro or Halide
