IPhone 8 plus review

I just bought an iPhone 8 plus.  I’m a keen iPhoneographer (is there such a word?!) and the main reason for updating from a 6 plus is the supposedly better camera.  So, yesterday I took the phone for a wander amongst the fallen leaves and vibrant colours on show in Clifton, Bristol.  Its a radically different camera, primarily because it now has two lenses, ‘wide’ and ‘telephoto’.  It also promises  ‘a larger, faster sensor. A new colour filter. Deeper pixels. And optical image stabilisation for photos and videos’.  I am a Lightroom fanatic and use the Lightroom mobile app as my go-to camera (as opposed to the ‘Camera’ app built in to the iPhone, and this gives me the ability to use RAW image shooting (Lightroom shoots in DNG format).  So, in theory the images are much more adjustable and non destructive, unlike JPEG images which is what the ‘Camera’ app uses.  Anyway, this is by no means a proper review, so it only remains for me to show you a tiny selection of images from the walk… they look great to me, and the resultant RAW files are of high quality, with plenty of detail, even in the shadows.. colours are rich and contrasty.  As for Lightroom mobile, I’m an evangelist, but it has to be one of the best bits of Photo software there is?  and its still new and developing… I love it that I can shoot on my iPhone, and it then syncs the images to my desktop so that I can then edit as soon as I get back from a shoot… or, in fact, start editing in the coffee shop on the way home (with those edits in place by the time I’m back on the office)!  fantastic.
