          Re: iPHONE photography

          I've also taken some iPhone 3G pictures in my time, but the camera in this phone is so bad, I'm only using the iPhone camera in 'emergancy'...., when I can't get my Pentax.

          Someone just walked over the workshop floor into rainwater leaving a pattern from the shoe heel. I saw a face, naturally....

            Great shots of the Queen, particularly the one of the impressive bow.

            I must also say, that the first image of QM2, it almost looks like a big smiling mouth across her stern.

            iPhone images are very much "emergency photos" for me as well, but I do shoot an increasing number of images with my iPHONE.

                Posted some Mustang images in the random cars thread, but since they were iPhone pictures, here are one of them again plus some more taken with my iPhone6s

                And last, an iPhone picture taken at home one Friday evening


                I like to use my iPhone as a camera more and more because of the increased camera quality from iPhone 3 to 6S, but when doing so, I also like to put the pictures through some effects. As I don't like when using my Pentax

                  First of all, nice new additions to an old thread.... the camera and image quality since iPhone 3 and 6 is a giant leap of technology.

                  Secondly, I was in Thailand (not a big surprise I guess...) and during my last visit I took nearly 1.200 pictures with iPHONE, and only 43 with my DSLR (of which only 17 was left after going through them and deleting duplicates and such).

                  In media these days and for quite a while already, it is stated that the new mobile phone cameras are killing the DSLR cameras. I think as the technology improves even further, camera makers such as Nikon and Canon for example, needs to rethink their models, pricing and edge. If they wants to continue selling DSLR cameras in the future, they really need to take a hard look at what people wants, needs and should be given in terms of technology. I fear the DSLR will eventually end up as a tool for only the work-professionals.

                    I agree with you when it comes to take pictures with a mobile phone.
                    I went to Sandnessjøen for 10 days to do a job, brought my Pentax with me, and for those who know me, you should expect 250-350 pictures from that trip. Not a single one did I take with my Pentax.
                    With my iPhone though, oh..., about 75 to 100...

                    Then again, I hope the DSLR will live on, because if you want quality and to be able to be a creative photographer, you'll need a DSLR.

                    You ask what people wants.... I don't have the correct answer, but quality is not part of it.
                    People don't give a d*** about how a picture appear, as long as it's easy to take, cheap and you can estimate what you see in the picture.
                    Oh yes, you can use a mobile camera in a very creative way..., but the majority of people don't.
                    Have you seen all the videos taken with a mobile phone camera? Everyone suffer from the VVS (Vertical Video Syndrome), simply because they don't know how to handle or use the phone as a camera. I got a headache just thinking about it.

                  Since it no longer was possible to get a proper workphone, I'm nowadays also partly draggning around one of these things. It's fantastic to hold in the hand, but it's definetly not efficient when it comes to getting things done. Yes, it also can take photos in the 3:2-format too...

                    I find that iPHONE images are - as far as I can see - lagging far behind my pocket camera as well as dSLR.

                    But still by far, iPHONE is the most used camera.

                    I wonder what you meant that it's not an efficient phone to get things done? Just curious.

                      I find it quicker to do things on an Android phone.
                      For example, there's no dedicated "back" button on the iPhone. I have not found any good keyboard either, that allows me to write as I prefer and not the way Apple thinks I want to.
                      The iPhone don't also work very well without iCloud.

                      Oh, yes, I agree on those sentiments.

                      But for me, having been in the Apple world for a decade, I have gotten used to it, and every time I help my father with his Samsung, I'm lost.

                      I guess it all boils down to knowing what you are used to.

                      Do you have a proposal for a good keyboard? Or are you using the original one?

                    Scrolling through albums, and just came up with one photographed by iPhone only. My Pentax was left home when I flew to Stavanger.

                    I found my iPhone very useful for this week-end in Stavanger, and to be honest, I din't miss my DSLR once. And that's the truth.

                      Thank you for sharing these Sterkoder, and for sharing your thoughts.

                      I have also been using iPHONE a lot for travel photography, it's just so much more simple when compared to a DSLR. But, in the midst of editing a lot of images lately, I clearly see that iPHONE still can't compare with images from the DSLR. I hope and pray they'll move up to 20MP eventually, like most of their competitors already have.

                      IPHONE camera has come a long way since my very first iPHONE more than a decade ago, but it can't always compare in quality.

                      These look good though, for the purpose of sharing images online. It's also fast, effortless and simple. And people like that, immediate images straight to the web and to social medias.

                      On another note, I bet you saw ROGALAND in the WW2 movie that was launched recently, right?

                      Just can't remember the name of the movie.

                        I use my iPhone camera ONLY if I can take a picture without having to zoom. As soon as you zoom in just a little bit, the iPhone camera stink, totally useless.
                        I wonder why Apple are so slow in developing a useful camera or even cooperate with a good camera maker, as Huawei do with Leica.
                        As you point out, a DSLR is always better and I belive so too.
                        The movie you think about, with ROGALAND, do you mean Dunkirk? Seen it once, but didn't think it was a very good movie. But that's me :-)

                      #58
                      I totally agree with you... as soon as you start zooming, even a tiny bit, iPHONE really sucks...

                      Other mobile phones like Huawei and Sony is far superior.

                      If by chance, the next iPHONE don't get better, I might be inclined to use another brand too. I don't expect Apple to become better than 12MP. I have been disappointed SO many times before.

                      I just can1t remember the name of the movie but you should really see it... she was painted all white and used in the movie. I have seen the movie, and while it may not have been one of my favourite movies, it was quite good.

                        The movie is most likely DUNKIRK.
                        I will most certainly stay with iPhone, because my every day is so easy and the phone and Mac cooperate without me having to transfer pictures and other stuff via cable. The iCloud is so handy, to put it that way.
                        But I would love to try the camera on the Huawei.
                        (As it must be millions upon millions using their iPhone for photography, it's rather strange and almost not to understand, why Apple don't put more money and effort into the camera).
