So remember when I wrote about my first #photo with the #pinephone? Yeah here's more from our trip to the Wallis (CH): (All made with my pinephone, with the Megapixels app)

Could you send a original image with a blue sky? I'd like to see it original.
I'm an image scientist and I'd like do see the image quality. I think there is work that can be done to improve images.

@ColinBrosseau Sure!

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?


This is going to be difficult to work on that without an actual device... :(

@ColinBrosseau FWIW, you could try to install Megapixels on a Laptop, if that helps. It might work.


Ha... Megapixels uses GTK4 which is not available on Ubuntu 20.04 that I use for work. I do not want that level of mess with my work computer. So I'll wait a bit for that... :(

@ColinBrosseau But thanks for your investigation so far, you've given me hope 😄.
