Ratings and Reviews
One word... Excellent
I love photography. So without question I own a profession Camera. However, I don’t always have it with me… but I always have my iPhone with me. So it’s understandable that I’d love to be able to squeeze every bit of extra detail I can get out of my iPhone photos. The RAW+ App really does the trick. To make an honest comparison I took multiple photos using the iPhone built-in App, the RAW+ App and two others. RAW+ always had a slight advantage over the rest. It’s an amazing App that retain extra detail in Highlights, Mid-tones, Shadows and gives you control over those Black Points. For example, the color “dark red” has always been a challenge and RAW+ helps by retaining so much metadata that you have more to work with when you import into your photo editor. RAW+ doesn’t include any gimmicks like the others that offer dozens of buttons and sliders to play around with. It’s a Pro App. You adjust your White Balance, ISO, Shutter Speed and TAKE THE SHOT! It will give you a hefty file size between 5 and 10MBs that you can import into your photo editor where the real magic begins.
Best so far
I’ve tried others that didn’t even save the images in RAW format. This one however does! Very easy manual controls and very easy to use. I transfer my photos to PS Express and edit the raw files there. Beautiful quality out of the iPhone 6S Plus.
Only one issue: when launching the app it always automatically snaps a picture. Now I bought the app so I have no complains. I assume this tactic was added for the free users to lower their free quota? Would be great if it can be solved since it’s a waste of energy for me and a kind of dirty move if it is indeed meant for the free users 😅
iPhone 6S Plus 128GB (iOS 11.4)
RAW+ - No Images
Same as other at least 2 other reviewers, there are no images to be found. iPhone X, iOS 12.1
UPDATE: I tried RAW+ on an iPad Air 2 and the app (same version of app, iOS) saved images as it is supposed to. The issue of not saving images would seem to be device specific and something for the developers to solve.
Update 2: still does not work on the iPhone latest iOS 12.1 and the latest RAW+, no saved photos. Works great on the iPad 2 Air and the iPad Pro gen 1, both with iOS 12.1
Update 3: all seems to be working, why I do not know; on my iPhone X there were no updates of the app or iOS 12.1 when it began functioning. Swear!
I have since begun using an iPhone XS and it also seems to be working at day 1 (iOS 12.1) so I am a happy iPhone photographer! Rating changed to 4 and I think that would give it 5 if I had a little more time with it.
Developer Response ,
Check your permission in the settings app. Scroll down to RAW+ and make sure photos "read and write' is enabled.
