Apple today unveiled their iPhone X smartphone, featuring an 5.8" edge-to-edge Super Retina OLED display with a resolution of 1125x2436 pixels. The dustproof and water resistant device makes do without a Home button, and uses Face ID technology to recognise the user, unlock the phone, gain access to secure apps and authenticate purchases via Apple Pay. Face ID utilises a state-of-the-art TrueDepth camera system made up of a dot projector, infrared camera and flood illuminator, and is powered by an A11 Bionic chip to accurately map and recognise a face. The new 7-megapixel TrueDepth camera that enables Face ID features wide colour capture, auto image stabilisation and precise exposure control, and brings Portrait mode to the front camera for enhanced selfies with a simulated shallow depth-of-field effect. The iPhone X also features a redesigned dual 12-megapixel rear camera system with dual optical image stabilisation. The ƒ/1.8 aperture on the wide-angle camera joins an improved ƒ/2.4 aperture on the telephoto camera for superior low-light performance. An improved Apple-designed image signal processor delivers advanced pixel processing, wide colour capture, faster autofocus in low light and better HDR photos. A new quad-LED True Tone Flash offers better light uniformity and includes Slow Sync, resulting in more uniformly lit backgrounds and foregrounds. Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting on both the front and rear cameras brings "dramatic studio lighting effects" to the iPhone and allows customers to capture portraits with a shallow depth-of-field effect in five different lighting styles. The Apple iPhone X will be available in silver and space grey in 64GB and 256GB models starting at $999.

Lightroom Mobile Update Adds Raw HDR Capture Mode

Adobe have released an update to Lightroom Mobile, bringing raw HDR image capture to select Android and iOS devices.  These updates, version 2.7 for iOS and version 2.3 for Android, are available for free. "Previously, capturing an image in HDR either meant using a DSLR or mirrorless camera, capturing multiple exposures, copying to your computer, and then merging in an application like Photoshop, Adobe Camera Raw, or Lightroom," says Josh Haftel, Senior Product Manager at Adobe. "Alternatively, you could capture an HDR JPEG on your phone, though those images normally used only two shots and often failed to capture the full range of tonality in difficult lighting scenarios. By capturing three raw shots and merging on the phone, you get a greatly increased dynamic range with the ability to edit and share right away." This new functionality is currently available on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, and the Apple iPhone SE, 6S, 6S Plus, 7, 7 Plus and iPad Pro 9.7.
