iPhone 7 DNG vs JPG (RAW vs JPG)

Comparison of shadow recovery from iPhone 7 RAW/DNG images vs JPG

It’s iPhone 7 launch day here in the U.K. and our 256GB iPhone 7 in black has arrived and the first thing we wanted to test was the new ability of the camera to shoot in RAW (actually Adobe’s open format RAW called DNG) and see what benefit it offered over shooting in normal JPG mode and we’re surprised, and disappointed, by the results.

Sony DSC-RX100M3 Sensor Dust [Sample Pics] : [Repaired by Sony]

My Sony RX100M3 has developed some large sensor dust spots, most noticeable in the sky on landscape photos at small apertures. This article shows an example of the sensor dust along with some test shots against a plain white scene at different apertures.

I bought my¬†RX100M3 in December 2014 and it’s pretty much the only camera I use to capture my personal memories and I choose to leave the bulky Canon 5D Mark iii for work only events.

In the last 8 months I’ve taken my trusty RX100M3 skiing in Austria, a long weekend in Paris, a stag week in Vegas, a week at Glastonbury Festival and most recently a week in Switzerland. I look after my kit and it’s never dropped, exposed to moist or excessively dusty environments, kept in a soft pouch, etc. It’s got an official Sony screen protector on the rear and Sony grip on the front. (If you are reading this and you own any RX100 model do yourself a massive favour and buy the Sony stick on grip, you’ll thank me).
So on my latest trip to Switzerland I was trying to capture the beautiful lake view and instantly noticed a large dark spot in the sky on every image.

Review of the Toma brown half leather case for the Fuji X100, X100S and X100T.

I’ve always been a bit blinkered when it comes to digital cameras and never looked at anything other than Canon. I’ve got a lot of money invested in the Canon camera brand including S90, G10, 5D Mark ii, 5D Mark iii, 7D and a whole host of L-series lenses. Last year I came across a brand new Fuji X10 at a price I just couldn’t refuse and I was starting to get the ‘new camera’ itch so rather than the latest G-series Canon or the EOS-M for my travels I bought a Fuji X10 and fell in love with it, especially in it’s Toma half leather case. The X10 accompanied me on all my holidays and trips for the year and it was a welcome relief to leave the bulky SLRs and camera cases at home for a change. However, something was lacking, I loved the X10 but I kept finding myself thinking “I miss the bokeh from a bigger sensor” or “I wish I had my 5D3 with me right now” and I was also finding it a little slow to focus when jumping from an SLR to the X10 so this is where the X100S came in…
