  • absolutely, currently I am using my old Canon 10-22 f3.5-4.5 with the ultra on the E-M1 and it works a treat as long as I do not use the ultra wide 10mm setting. 11mm seems alright with minimal to ...
  • Just to add with regards to using APS-C lenses and the Focus reducers, the 0.71x ultra does result in slightly larger image circle than the APS-C standard, so with some lenses there will also be ...
  • I think the reason I was able to practice this technique years ago is thanks to Nokia's Pureview zoom technology in 2012 which would allow for digital cropping from an exceptionally high ...
  • Nice phone photography tip :) I have been practicing this technique for years. With the improvement of image quality of mobile phone cameras over the years, one can reframe or crop into an image ...
  • ahh was it captured wide open, ie at f4?
  • Replied in great post
    Hey Jostian You should give Camera pixels a try. It is the only app that can capture and DNG and do an automated in app conversion to JPG. ie JPG is derived from the DNG skipping Apples image ...
  • Very wise indeed. The LED flashes in mobile phones are way too weak to compete against a backlit scene. LED flashes work optimally for illuminating a dark equal lit scene. The only phones I know ...
  • As basic pixels said, the reason why the file size is smaller is more to do with the image processing and noise reduction. In general a less noisy image will render a much smaller file than a ...
  • great shot! Wish the bokeh was less busy, but I guess with the limited camera hardware this is probably the best bokeh one can achieve with small optics and small sensors.
  • Good answer, but one has to wonder if someone could hack iOS for the excluded older phones to enable this feature. This may be possible on say a jailbroken  phone....
  • another good method to reduce NR on the iPhone is to ensure lower ISOs are used prior to capturing an image. Sometimes if light is less than adequate a steady hand or a tripod may be beneficial. ...
  • Light room mobile may render a better resultant image  due to clever mature image processing techniques. I dare say if you put the DNGs generated by Camera Pixel or any 3rd party raw capturing app ...
  • It depends on personal tolerance on quality. It is probably best to get some test prints done at your local photo print lab or printer and then base on your own opinion to whether the water color ...
  • this test just proves that Lightroom is better at lifting shadow detail than Snapseed. To compare the DNG output, would it be better to capture LR DNG, and Camera pixel DNG and use Snapseed on ...
  • The app has since been renamed CameraPixels, which is much easier to search on appstore it seems.
  • Wow, from your results pixel peeping the default JPG is very descent. The images you are getting from Camera pixels seems to render the thread thicker from the auto developed output, also the ...
  • If you are comparing the contrast, saturation, and sharpening, the Apple JPG does look better, albeit a little water colored. The detail rendered from the converted DNG does render better fine ...
  • Indeed! Exposure bracketing DNG is quite a descent feature in my opinion, but would be even better if there was an option to enable the DNG-M (auto DNG converted JPG) to work with RAW captured ...
  • Replied in Headphone jack
    For the iPhone 7, yes it is included, but since the iPhone SE line is considered a more "budget" series to Apple, they would most likely only include earpods with lightning connector, with the ...
  • Curious, Some full resolution examples would be good to see thanks.
