I happened to have the "Save raw files" option on, so I attached the .dng file. No idea what it contains, but you might find it useful.
I also shot comparison pictures with my OnePlus 5 with Lineage OS (stock camera app). I attached a photo from the same location (on the suspension bridge) but with a slightly different angle.
I think there can be done a lot with software on the pinephone. I don't know a lot in this regard, but good luck to you!
@ColinBrosseau I have more side-by-side pictures with both phones and raw files. If you could use more samples, just @ me again.
Thank you a lot. This is really helpfull to have both the raw and image processed. Having two differens cameras is a big plus.
I'll have fun with that.
It may leads to me buying a Pinephone to work on it's camera.
My god... Pinephone processed image (jpg) is just ugly....
The raw file show many not nice feature too, but clearly the raw -> jpg introduce/boots a lot of problems.
I think that there is a high potential of improvement here.
By looking at the "jpg" image you sent me, I see a quite fast exposure time and quite high sensor gain (aka ISO).
I do not know if these are real or not and what is the base ISO, but it seems that the AE may have strange way of balancing gain/shutter.
Have you used auto or manual exposure?
