Test Driving the Camera on the iPhone 7 Plus

Purchasing the new iPhone has become a yearly event/holiday for me.  When I first purchased the original iPhone many years ago I never envisioned that I would be using it for photography.  The camera in the first device was mediocore at best.  The cameras on mobile devices just keep getting better and better.  There's also now a plethora of editing and processing apps to choose from.  It's amazing how we can now use mobile devices as our main camera, photo processor and photo sharing utility.  

With the release of iOS 10 Apple has opened up even more possibilities with the iPhone.  They now allow third party camera apps to capture RAW DNG images.  This is a big deal if you are a photographer who has mainly works with RAW images.  The ability of capturing RAW images instead of JPEG images allows us to process images instead of having the iPhone process them for us.  Although the iPhone does take very good JPEGS I would rather have more control over settings such as exposure, saturation, contrast etc.  

I have been testing the camera(s) on the new iPhone 7 Plus for nearly 2 weeks now and I must say that I have been very impressed.  The images below are just a few examples of some of the photos that I have captured using it.
