  • iPhone photo quality advice
    You could also use a third party camera app that skips the processing, like Halide or Moment. They give you a lot of manual control. Source: 20 days ago
  • iPhone 13 and up ugly & frustrating Photo post-processing
    Best way around this is to use a third party camera app like Halide. Source: 27 days ago
  • iPhone 13 camera settings
    I really like to use Halide for situations where I want more control over the camera, and it will take RAW images to be edited later. Source: 3 months ago
  • Any tips how to improve night shots? Iphone14pm
    Halide is a third party camera app that gives you significantly more manual control over the camera - e.g. You get to set ISO, shutter speed, and focus manually. Source: 4 months ago
  • The Limits of Computational Photography
    To find the RAW feature you need to do two things: Go to Settings -> Camera -> toggle Apple ProRAW on Then in the Camera app there will be a "RAW" button that you can tap on to enable RAW capture Third party camera apps like Halide ( focus on just using the RAW capabilities by default. - Source: Hacker News / 4 months ago
  • Apple iPhone 14 Pro Camera test
    Yes, and is an excellent choice if you want more than the native RAW mode offers. I only shoot RAW, it does require post-processing to get social media looking photos if that's your bag. (Normies want the pop, not the accuracy; nice it has both.). - Source: Hacker News / 8 months ago
  • Are there benefits other than better editability when taking pictures in raw mode?
    You can get some benefits or raw capture without storing raw with an app like Halide. Instead of using the iPhone cameras deep fusion to composite multiple exposures together you get their processing or lackthereof. Also you can take a 24MP picture and still save it as a HIEC instead of RAW this taking up far less storage. I don't mean to pretend I know what I'm talking about just that it may be worth trying...

  • How do i stop apples auto-something function when i take photos??
    Your best bet is using a camera app like Obscura or Halide instead of the built-in Camera app. They let you manually adjust focus and exposure and such, and actually save the picture you take (with optional AI touchups). Source: 9 months ago
  • 1-iii or 1-iv for casual photographer?

  • Is it worth it to get iPhone 13 pro/iPhone 13?
    Ah, that reminds me: The 13 Pro is pretty good (I have one) -- but there is a twist. For the consistently best picture quality, you may have to use one of the $$$ third-party camera apps. The default camera app on the 13 series generally works fine, but it has always-on HDR. That can sometimes take wonky pictures and turn the image into a watercolor painting. Example. The current solution is to get one of the... Source: 11 months ago
