My Camera of Choice for my photo tours- The iPhone

October 08, 2013  •  1 Comment

When I have tours with Doc Miles Photography & Tours I use my iPhone camera to compose the shots and advise my clients on the angles from which to shoot. The iPhone 5 & 5s have remarkable cameras and can capture amazing images on-the-fly that would take a lot of set up in the past.

Don't get me wrong. You are not going to get the RAW file photographs and gallery quality from an iPhone, but my job is to set up the DSLR shooter with the best possible light and composition for the photos they need to get of the iconic landmarks on the tour. The iPhone is a great "tool" to shoot and say " Here this is shot you are looking for". 

I usually don't shoot along side clients with my professional cameras when on tour. I am there for them to get the best possible shots. I bring along a DLSR to read exposure, etc.

This is an iPhone shot. It will never win award it was helpful to have the client to see what was possible. Most recently a National Geographic photographer shot 4000 iPhone 5s shots in Scotland and praised the results.

Wow you have just made up my mind for me on which iPhone that was going to purchase, thank u so much for your input & advice! I have had the iPhone 4s in my cart for a couple days, but I think I should spend the extra $100 for the 5....so glad I clicked the link & came to this site!
