    I got my 7+ 256 last night, arrived pretty late which did not leave me much time to check out the cameras.

    However, today I had an editorial shoot and knew it would lend it self really well to some of the more peripheral type shots along side my other gear. I used both lenses equally but the new 56mm 2.8 was really brilliant to work with.

    For many, smartphone cameras have long suffered from what I refer to as "Go Pro Disease" in that we have been stuck with fairly wide lenses and nothing else unless an accessory lens is used.

    Enter the iphone 7+'s 56mm 2.8. Some have really poo-poo'd both the speed and lack of OIS on this new camera. That really baffles me since in decent light it most certainly does well enough. Shooting some shots in DNG via Camera Pro 8 went the extra mile on both lenses but the improvement was especially noticeable on the 56mm.

    So I'll start with a few random shots from today:

    Great shots, So these photos you posted above were shot with the Telephoto lens of the iPhone 7 Plus?

    Yes, although I consider it to be a "normal" lens at 56mm.

    I'm absolutely no photographer so maybe my idea of RAW might be completely wrong. I just tried taking some RAW photos with my iPhone 7 using the Obscura app and the RAW photo's look much worse than the JPEG counter parts. Wrong in the sense that their is absolutely no sharpness. Looks almost as if I took the photo on an old school flip phone. Am I wrong in thinking that the RAW should be sharper? It was indoors so is the lower light the reason for this?

    RAW files will be softer than what the iPhone's JPEG engine will produce. But that comes at a price, like most non-DSLR JPEG engines, it gets a bit over sharpened via what the OS decides which is fine for web / social but not for print. I only needed to use a little over average in terms of sharpening settings with the 7+ compared to my other digital bodies, .5 pixel radius, detail slider at over 1/2 way, sharpness a bit under 1/2.

    RAW photos are unprocessed, so in their original forms they will likely look worse than what you have been used to. The RAW/unprocessed format contains MUCH more data to work with though, and allows for much more post-processing while remaining clean to create the exact look you want.

    A good analogy would be comparing RAW photos to lossless audio.

    Too bad first picture was ruined by the neon hoodie. It would've been really nice. :(

    LOL, it's supposed to be there, part of a series. Like this one:

    Nice stuff folks, just wanted to show this lens does not play second fiddle to the 28mm and these photos show that. It's got *great* personality!

    Can't wait to get my hands on this 2x lens. Been shooting so many more photos since the 6s+ came out. The camera got so legit at that point. This just takes it to another level.

    The advantage of having that neon hoodie in there is that it's a fantastic demonstration of the color range of the camera sensor.

    Do you mean ProCamera by cocologics?

    How does it compare to Camera+ ?

    I've had Camera+ for a while, but honestly haven't used it much (I originally got it years ago when the iOS camera app didn't allow for a timer to take pics). I'm starting to explore more in-depth photography options now with my 7+. If ProCamera is superior, I'll pick it up. :)

    (Had to compress the photo a bit using Afterlight because of the size restrictions)

    Anyone having issues with pics shot in RAW being blurry? It's not just one app but all of them. The JPG version is clear but the RAW version isn't. I am running iOS 10.1 so that could be a factor...
