It’s been a strange year ! Apple selling smartphones that are over the £1000 mark and people just falling for it !
I walked away from Nikon for this reason quite a few years back, suck you in to a product then hike the prices up.
I nearly bought one but then I came to my senses !
I have used the iPhone 7 for over two years and loved it to be honest and could not see the value in a £1200 upgrade !
I just wanted a bigger screen as my eyesight is not great in the winter and a slightly better camera. So I went for the iPhone 7+ and so far I have been blown away by this phone.
It’s my go to pocket camera now before my G7X Mark II, it really is a great smartphone.
I have seen some great work from this phone from Mark Littlejohn and Matt Walkley, so took the plunge and saved myself a fortune over the new really expensive models. I always get my new phones in John Lewis now, they give you such a long warranty it’s a no brainer.
I did read Apple are disappointed in the iPhone sales this year ! No shit Sherlock !
I really am very happy with this bigger phone and camera is very nice.
The images below were all shot on a recent trip to Yorkshire for the Fujiholics Workshop in the Yorkshire Dales.
Love the iphone7+ combined with SnapSeed.
Working as a full time Professional Photographer is not easy at times and the hardest part it taking a break and going on Holiday. When photography was a hobby you used to get really excited about you next trip to try out that new bit of kit.
When you are full time you try and think of a way to take photos on holiday but not to weigh your self down with lots of camera gear.
This time I managed to fit all my kit in to one bag and that’s a first. I needed to bring video kit for my YouTube channel and keep the stills kit to a minimum.
Now I am putting more time in to YouTube the video kit comes first and that has forced me to look for smaller stills kit. On this trip I just brought the Fujifilm X100F and the Canon G7X Mark II ( the G7X also double as a video camera for hand held stuff) I brought the Canon M50 and the Canon 200D for vlogging, these will soon be replaced by two Fujifilm X-T3s.
This trip so far it’s been a struggle to shoot video as I have been having gallbladder issues for a few months now and trust me gallstone pain is not nice and has been wiping me out for up to 8 hours so I have not had time to shoot and edit much video and the stills have fallen by the wayside so far !
I have managed a few iphone shots and a couple with my G7X but that is about it.
People don’t like to admit it but smartphones are so easy to use and we have them with us all the time so in reality they really are great unless you need a large image. I have blown my iphone7 images up to 10 x 8 and they are great.
So on this break to Ireland I think my iphone will come in to its own.
All iphone 7 images edited in SnapSeed.
I won’t have time to do a YouTube update this week but will get something uploaded as soon as I get back.
