A few weeks back I ran some tests on the RAW files taken with the latest iPad Pro. Frankly, I was pretty impressed, the quality was indeed considerably better than what’s possible on my “soon to be replaced iPhone 6S Plus.” Those test results got me quite excited because I fully expected to find the DNGs produced by the new iPhone 8 Plus would be a small step further step up the quality ladder.
As far as I can tell the modules on the iPad Pro and iPhone 8 plus are pretty similar, save for the lack of stabilization on the iPad, but like all things Apple it can be quite difficult to get any definitive answers on what’s going on under the hood. Anyhow, I’d have been happy if the iPhone 8 Plus DNG files were as good as the iPad Pro since it seems they’re actually a bit better I’m pretty chuffed.
