Long overdue for a cell phone upgrade I ordered the iPhone 7 Plus after watching the promotion video, and several youtube reviews. My ship date was way out Nov. 7-11th. Sigh. Oh boy, this phone is popular I thought.
To my delight I received an email saying my new iPhone 7 Plus was shipped I’d have it the following day! I received it Thursday late afternoon, and began the process of updating my iTunes, backing up my iPhone 5’s data, images, etc., then followed the steps to get my new phone up and running. It took a long time, and it wasn’t without a few glitches, but I was able to take it with me to the Eastern Sierras for the week-end to try it out while I was photographing Fall Colors with a group of photographers, and friends.
I was really excited to try out the dual lenses in the new iPhone.
Here are three images I made using it.
Mono (moh-noh) Lake South Tufa Area Daybreak. Tufa is pronounced (too-fah).
On the top two images I used Adobe Camera Raw after uploading the images to my computer. I applied my standard settings: I opened up the shadows, and tweaked the blacks, and highlights. Then I added a bit of contrast, vibrance, and cropped off bits that didn’t add anything to the image or to strengthen the composition. I added sharpening for the web and resized them for web viewing.
Conway Summit Alpine Glow (Sunrise)
North Lake: This image is SOC = Straight out of the camera aside from resizing for the web, and cropping off a bit at the top.
+1 MORE: I packed lite, really I DID!
The camera won’t replace my DSLR, but I’m impressed with it and will probably start using my phone camera more than I have been. I wonder if my FZ200 will be the camera that gets shelved for this camera though?
I have oodles of images I made over the week-end made with my trusty Df. I’ll be sharing those soon.
