Long Term iPhone 7 Plus review: still amazing and still makes single sensor cameraphones obsolete

Not motivated to use any other cameraphones

It's been 6 months since I got the iPhone 7 plus and its 2 sensor camera. Call me crazy camera obsessive, but I just can't get excited or motivated to use a single sensor cameraphone. The iPhone 7 plus's two camera sensors are that good. Sure the Google Pixel single sensor cameraphone is marginally better in bright light but there . . .

Ultimate 21st century cam duo: iPhone 7 plus and?

rx10iii? or?

It seems to me there's no point buying an RX100 now that the iPhone 7plus has a zoom. So I would humbly suggest that the ultimate combo is 7Plus + an RX10iii. To get all the focal lengths (28 to 600!) and to get water resistance. The RX10iii would be perfect if you could get GPS from the iPhone like the Olympus E-M1 can! Until then . . .

PREDICTION:By 31Dec2017 there will be an awesome iPad Pro RAW editor

check back in Dec 2017 to see if I am right

Repeat from 2016 but updated for 2017: You get what you pay for :-) But I think all you need is something like Lightroom Mobile but programmed from an iPad Pro point of view first (i.e. including stylus and keyboard and solving the external storage / SD import problem AND not needing desktop sync or any other legacy kludges)!!!!!!

Kirk gets it on automatic camera sync

"The workflow is simple. Shoot and upload low resolution jpegs. When one is approved, then the raw file is uploaded. Any camera that makes this simpler is ahead of the game."

Great comment from a great Kirk Tuck post.

Adobe is doing a great job with their Lightroom Mobile iOS and Android apps

Not sure about desktop Lightroom

Adobe is doing a great job with their Lightroom Mobile apps on iOS and Android. On the Notes they support the stylus (long live the Note 5, it's a great phone sad about the EOL'd Note 7), on the iPhone 7 Plus they support the 2 camera sensors and many more... Kudos to the team!

Now if only the could get Lightroom on Mac OS X to be as . . .

For $US30 a month for 2 years I can have an iPhone 7 plus so why do I need a point and shoot?

I actually think it's less than $30 a month (and the inevitable Samsung two camera sensor cameraphone iPhone clone will be cheaper in a year or two). And then after 2 years the phone is yours. And it has a zoom. Good bye point and shoots once and for all! Good riddance. If the point and shoots auto-synced their photos w/an iPhone or . . .

Stopped using Fuji's app

Why because it's too slow. Switched to Eye-Fi card

I lose the GPS but Eye-Fi's WiFi works so much better than Fuji's apps.And who really needs single point GPS anyway? Fingers crossed that Fuji's app will become more usable someday (e.g auto-connect, so you don't have to do the phone + Fuji camera dance every single time!).
