I've used both the Moment app and Halide to shoot in RAW. The files are saved as DNG. Note however that RAW on the new Xs iPhones is problematic. In Moment they are basically unusable as they are terribly overexposed. Halide has a new version out in which they've done some work to alleviate that, but I've not found them to be very useful, particularly low-light images.If so, does anyone know how to set it to shoot in this format?
You do not need to have a CC subscription to save the raw edits in LR. I use LR all the time and it saves the raw edit jpgs just fine to the camera roll.Adobe Lightroom Mobile has a very good RAW camera built in and shows highlight clipping, very useful when shooting RAW. It’s free, but to save RAW edits in LRM you have to have a CC subscription. You can however, export the .dng RAW file and edit it in another image editor.

I don’t use highlight clipping much as it doesn’t show when close to being clipped (which is what is need to shoot ETR). ProCamera displays the live histogram which is much more useful.The overexposed Xs series RAW files have been noted by the Halide folks and they’ve recently updated their app. This article on Luminous Landscape emphasizes the necessity of being able to see highlight clipping and adjust the exposure accordingly. This article may be paywalled, but if you can read it, read it through without leaving the page.
TL;DR, CameraPro, Lightroom Mobile, and RAW+ Apps have highlight clipping features. I have not used CameraPro yet, but I have tried RAW+ and it does not save images for me and this is noted in some reviews, however the app is free for the first 100 shots so you can certainly try it out. Lightroom’s camera works well for showing the highlight clipping.
LR mobile allows you to save the edited raw files as jpgs without a CC subscription. I use it all the time (or use to, I seldom use my phone for photos these days).I do this.
Oh the edits, yup. I do t see that as a problem anyway. I really never used LR Mobile on my phone to do the edits. Way too small of a screen. I would always dump the LR raws off to the iPad or laptop anyway.That’s correct on LR. You have to save the edits as jpeg unless you have cc subscription.
Oppsss. Sorry. . Saw “AZ” in your screen name and “Fountain city”. The town in Arizona is actually “Fountain Hills”. Time for my second cup of coffee (its morning time here now).
Me too, I still shoot large format black and white, usually 5x7 and 8x10 but I live 7x17 and 8x20. I have a 1920s vintage 8x20 Korona that’s so loose you’d swear it could never take a sharp image, yet it does.Oppsss. Sorry. . Saw “AZ” in your screen name and “Fountain city”.

I actually seldom use my phone for photos anymore. Sometimes a little “digi-snap” here and there but that’s about it. For me, cell phones just aren’t there yet, but can certainly make some very acceptable photos for many people and certainly fine often for social media post.
I’ve been photographing for ca 55 years and am just using one of my cameras these days.
