    Re: DSLR vs. iPhone

    They're quite impressive! Beautiful scene in the first and a brave soul in the second.

    I have to keep reminding myself I do NOT need a smartphone, though I'm often tempted.

      Some great photos with phones. As always the best camera you have is the one you have with you. (Borrowed saying)

      Took these two on a misty morning on a work to the Swiss office from the hotel.

      Best Regards

        Couple more. The foliage shot was taken with an iPhone 5; the bike with an iPhone 6. Post processing with FotoRus

          More from the iPhone 6 using the Pro HDR app.

            Re: DSLR vs. iPhone

            I just founded the last version for ios8.


            Description

            Introducing Pro HDR X, the first complete overhaul of the world’s most popular HDR app. (Requires iOS 8.)

            Five years ago, we created Pro HDR, which won many awards and has since been purchased over a million times. Now, we are thrilled to release Pro HDR X, the first app to leverage iOS 8’s bracketed burst exposure capture support. No more waiting, no more worrying about dynamic range — Pro HDR X captures true HDR images automatically and instantly, with dramatically better results than ever before.

            "Pro HDR X is far better than Apple's built-in software" -- TUAW (October 19, 2014)

            Going way beyond the limited HDR built into iOS, Pro HDR X dynamically analyzes the scene in realtime and provides up to 10 additional stops of dynamic range. For the first time, Pro HDR X now uses three separate full-resolution exposures to generate your HDR, giving you maximum dynamic range with minimal artifacts and noise. And we still also offer manual mode for those who wish to select their exposure points by hand. Plus, there’s even a new slider that lets you fine-tune exactly how much HDR effect you want after your shot is captured.

            Not only does Pro HDR X feature a massive leap in image quality and speed, we’ve totally redesigned the UI, bringing a modern iOS 8 look and feel to the app. We’ve hand-crafted the interface to perfectly suit each device’s native size and resolution, from the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, and of course to the new iPhone 6 and 6+, both of which get custom new layouts and optimizations. And we haven’t forgotten iPads, which also feature brand new interfaces perfectly suited to their larger screens.

            The features don’t end there. Pro HDR X also includes:

            • Advanced photo library support, from editing single images to aligning and merging HDRs from two or three bracketed images. We even let you import giant DSLR images from your photo library (up to 24 megapixels) so you can create professional HDRs on the go.

            • State-of-the-art image registration and blending. We precisely correct for translation and rotation between images, giving you the sharpest possible images. And of course, our images are saved at full resolution.

            • Rear and front camera support (real HDR selfies… yay), self-timer, flash options, digital zoom, cropping, and grid overlay

            • Live-updating sliders to perfect your HDR; control HDR strength, brightness, contrast, saturation, warmth, and tint, or let Pro HDR X pick the best settings for you

            • Beautiful filters and frames custom written and designed by us

            • Text captions so you can add words to your photos (your choice of font and color)

            • Geotag (optional) GPS + Compass / EXIF data saved to your camera roll

            • Share your HDRs with the world via built-in iOS sharing support

            Please note: Pro HDR X requires iOS 8. If your device runs iOS 8, Pro HDR X will support it! If you don’t have iOS 8, we still offer our original Pro HDR app, which supports iOS 4 and newer, so check that out.

              I've been using PRO HDR X for about two weeks. It's certainly much faster (instantaneous vs. several seconds of analyzing) and the results are very good. In side by side tests the original version sometimes is better.

              My wife and I have been on the road for five weeks and will finally return to Vermont at the end of the month. We'll spend a month there before spending the rest of the winter out west.

              We've taken thousands of shots with a Canon EOS Xsi (Sigma 18-300), a Samsung Galaxy Camera (not a phone) and two iPhone 6's with Pro HDR and Pro HDR X. In addition I used Snapseed for some post processing of the iPhone shots. Here are a few samples from the iPhone. All but the dragon shot used one of the Pro HDR versions.

                What outstanding shots. I particularly like the one with the lamp and the Bird of Paradise flowers and the sky that speaks to me. Also the dragon and the hot air balloon

                  And one more. For giggles I took an iPhone photo of my DSLR. The second small light is a passenger jet.

                    Okemo Mountain "unretired" me for the month of January so I'm back running one of the ski racing operations. One of the advantages is that I get to go up on the mountan before the lifts are open to the public. The snow is unmarked and makes for some interesting photos. These are both iPhone shots. The black and white shows what skiers call "corduroy snow" - the result of giant grooming machines.

                      Re: DSLR vs. iPhone

                      My wife and I retired and have been on the road since November with our Canon DSLR, Samsung Galaxy camera and our two iPhone 6s. Here are a few of the iPhone shots we've taken. In most of them I've used a free post processing tool called Snapseed. A couple of these might have been taken with the Samsung.

                        Re: DSLR vs. iPhone

                        I've enjoyed following this thread. So many great shots.

                        I too did a side by side comparison of an iPhone 4 and a Top Pro DSLR. When set to the closest match of resolution, field of view and shooting in "P" mode, using as best I could the same subjects & composition, lighting etc., I resized the images to Web Size. There were differences, but the DSLR images were no where near the 8 times better, than should be based on cost comparisons

                        It's good to see a retirement being well done - Long may it be so...

                          Graham - I'd love to see your comparison shots.

                          I don't take a lot of people pictures but did like this one I took with my iPhone of my child bride (she's only 62) yesterday at a Starbucks.

                            A few more taken with either my iPhone or the wife's Samsung Point and Shoot. Post processing done with Snapseed.

                              Saw an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal arguing that smartphones still can't match the performance of traditional cameras.

                              I use both but have been pretty happy with the iPhone 6.

                                Some great examples in this article.

                                For those of you on Facebook, I've put together an album of iPhone photos.
