How To Shoot RAW On Your iPhone with Adobe Lightroom Mobile

Of course one of the big announcements to the world prior to Photokina was that Apple’s iOS 10 would support RAW image capture, and not long after that Adobe announced that LRMobile would support RAW capture in the latest update. Well, that new update is here, and if you are one of those with a compatible iOS 10 device (iPhone 6s or newer) you can now start shooting RAW on your phone. But HOW exactly do you do that?

Terry White recently just released this great video detailing exactly how to shoot in RAW on your iPhone with Lightroom Mobile. Beyond the additional processing latitude, the other benefits that come with doing this (specifically with Lightroom Mobile) is that the RAW files are then synced with your desktop so you can edit your iPhone RAW files in more detail when you get home.

Obviously, many of you won’t be able to use this until your next phone upgrade, and Android users have had RAW capture for a while now — Bur for those trying to figure out how to shoot RAW on their new iPhone 7 or newly updated to iOS 10 6/6s I have yet to find a better how to.
