Digital Negative

By Cypress Innovations

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Digital Negative is specifically designed to capture the highest quality images from the iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch camera.

Digital Negative is the first app that captures uncompressed images that retain all of the information recorded by the camera sensor. These Digital Negative (DNG) pictures are much like the negatives from a film camera, and the serious photographer can use standard raw editing programs or Digital Negative’s built-in raw editing tools to develop the photograph and display all of the features in the image.

This feature was previously only available on high-end cameras like digital SLRs, but now your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, can do it too. Digital Negative has the tools needed to preview images quickly, view all of the EXIF information, and can develop them on the go.

There are several other revolutionary features in this app. First, Digital Negative shows a real-time histogram of the camera's display, to avoid under- or over-exposing images before taking the photograph. Digital Negative contains exposure locking, and flash, focus, and zoom controls to help set up the image with greater precision.

Still want to take pictures in JPG or TIFF format? No problem. Digital Negative also records high-quality JPG images or uncompressed TIFF files. Want to share photos? Digital Negative allows uploading of uncompressed pictures to Dropbox and uploading of JPG versions to Facebook.

Get the most of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch camera with Digital Negative!

Customer Reviews

All post-processing already done

I purchased this app in spite of all the negative reviews in the hope that the image data for the uncompressed photos would be collected prior to all post-processing had been done. Unfortunately this is not the case. With the later iPhone models from 4 and onwards, sharpening is being applied and this is very clear when zooming in on photos with great contrast. This app collects the image data once all processing have been done so pretty much worthless as the JPEG photos saved by the native Camera app have very little compression applied.

There are other apps that can save photos without compression and which do not make any claims on saving RAW data. For example NightCap Pro, which still can be used for daytime photos.

Works Great with iPhone 5s

I have no problem shooting in DNG, TIFF, or JPG. If you don't want a large file or you need to send jpgs then this app is NOT for you. If you read the instruction manual it TELLS you how to use this app for those of you that are having problems.
This app may work better for the iphone 5s, but it does off all of the above mentioned options and I USE them.

Great app for those if us pro photographers that at times must use the only camera at hand... our iphones. Makes some very useable images in pinch.

I suggest that users and potential users down load the User's Manual. When in double Read It.

Great app. does what it promised for me and is a great option for higher quality large files for later processing. Remember they can be loaded to Dropbox or loaded via iTunes when connected to your computer.


I'd really like my $2.99 back. Thought this would be a great app, but it keeps crashing. I take a picture, it crashes. I try to export pictures or save to phone and it crashes. All this app does is CRASH!!!
