    Another interesting article – thanks Kevin.

    I love how easy to is to use my iPhone 12 Pro, but also like my Fujis.  This means of doing long exposures is very attractive.  I have a couple of questions that I cannot get the answers from the app supplier website.

    Can you use the 3 or 10 second shutter opening delay on the phone?

    I normally move photos from the phone to my desktop by Airdrop.  I don’t take many at a time and it is easy.  Do the images taken with these apps appear in the phone photos app as do normal images?  If so, I would then Airdrop them.  Or do they have to go across to the desktop a different way?

    I particularly like the idea of taking long RAW exposures.  I am happy with the results of using super resolution with iPhone RAWs in LR, which, of course, gives a 48MP image.

    Thanks,

    Jonathan

    Hello Andrew,

    I agree with you, but, in my situation, it is a case of can I justify the expense. I do not do enough prints that require critical appraisal, nor do I have the space for a second monitor, so will pass on a reference display.

    Best wishes,

    Jonathan

    Hello,

     

    Thanks for this very informative walkthrough video.

    We have an M1 Mac which is used for LR and PS and lots of other things, like Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.  You commented, Kevin, that Mac monitors tend to be bright and that the calibration may darken the screen.  We like the screen as supplied for non-photo work, so I was not sure about darkening the screen.  I have not calibrated the monitor since buying the computer, and have relied on looking at the histogram and soft proofing  before printing.  I now know from what you showed that the profile can easily be changed in System Preferences, so will get the calibrator you used in the video and change to that profile when using LR and PS, PTGui and Helicon Focus.  When finished I will revert to the iMac default profile.

    My concern has gone away; thanks.

    Jonathan

    Hello,

    If you are going to do Canon and it is appropriate, I would like to know what you think of the Canon Professional Print and Layout plug in for LR ad PS, including its B&W mode.

    Best wishes,

    Jonathan
