vas3k's: Computational Photography From Selfies to Black Holes is a great explainer
Computational photography has arrived. For an explainer, see vas3k's: Computational Photography From Selfies to Black Holes as predicted by yours truly in 2015 :-) in my post: Computational Photography is coming . Not that I'm a great prophet, in 2015 I was clearly right and in 2019 it's obvious I'm right what with the L16, . . .
Operating system updates will break your digital camera software. Security vulnerabilities will be found that require updates too, etc, etc
I understand the whole tempest in a tea pot about Adobe forcing a subscription model for Photoshop and Lightroom (It's bad marketing IMHO for Adobe to have pretended that subscription was forever going to be "just an option") but unless you:
- don't connect your computer to another computer on the internet or . . .
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 . . .
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 . . .
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)!!!!!!
