Does anyone know if it's possible to lock the focus, on this phone, then adjust the exposure? E.g. I want to lock the focus on an object close to the lens, and then move the phone around to point at something else while I lock the exposure separately on different areas of the scene. Does anyone know if this is possible?

PhD4: Photo app # 2,874 in the effort to try and make a phone something more than it is.

@phD4, Hiya,

Thanks for taking the time to reply. The shot of the water on the hand isn't filtered, but I did use Photoshop Touch to increase the mid-tones a lot. It was a really dark image using ISO of 50, & a shutter speed of nearly 10k. The white line is a lens flare/refraction from the sun.

Agree with you on the limitations of the phone completely. This year's mobile camera gen. is really improving on the last, & we can expect some great results as they encroach more into replacing the point & shooters.

My ears perked up, with your original comments about trying to make a phone, something that it isn't, & you're quite right. The phone isn't a camera, but, it's becoming one. There are many, unlike yourself, that believe it should be replacing (& already has) their point n shoot. Belief in change, regardless of restriction, is where we find innovation & fresh thought. I love to try to push the boandaries of mobile tech, just to see where it takes us, & I love my big lens cam too.

Still don't think mobile photography is worth much?
..and is a filter very similar to presets in Lightroom?

Here's a not so blurry, no so shabby, photo, or two, from a "cameraphone" PHD4:

I love a challenge. Mobile Photography is worth a second look ;o)

Sure, I'll see how I go. Where do you want me to post them? Hi Misho!

Leon Shmyhol: Who needs Adobe Photoshop on a mobile device? What's the purpose?

People like me that only edit their mobile photography on a mobile device.

The effects are shockingly bad, and so out of date you swear you were back in 2009.. but, the tone, colour enhancing, and tools are absolutely wonderful.

This app has loads of potential. Hope they allow keeping of exif data in an update real soon.

Better late than never Adobe!

This is a god-send for the severely lacking Android platform, I'm so pleased to see someone finally brought out a serious photo editing app for the droids ;o)
