Could you confirm the iPhone version you have with OS version & Lightroom Mobile version.
iPhone 6 with current OS and LR Mobile version.
Is LR Mobile supposed to support RAW image capture on iPhone 6 or only on Android???
I quote, "Adobe recently released Lightroom 2.2 for iOS with popular features following Android’s Lightroom 2.0 update. Users can now export photos at 4K resolution for high-end viewing and printing, and access 3D touch support while in Lightroom’s Camera Roll. The iOS version of Lightroom app still lacks Camera RAW support available in the Android version."
Thank you! That certainly explains why I could not find any mention whatsoever about RAW image support. Disappointing, but then I never use my iPhone camera anyway. If it eventually supports RAW, then I would find LR Mobile a worthwhile app. Thanks again for the clarification!
I agree, without this capability its usefulness to me is doubtful .
I've been checking in every couple of months since the demise of Photosmith hoping for an iPhone / iPad solution for triaging, rating and tagging RAW photos in the field before importing the keepers to LR on my desktop back at base.
At the moment I'm still on LR5. This is the feature that will make it worthwhile for me to subscribe to the Creative Cloud photographer's plan.
FIngers crossed it's on the development roadmap....
Without the ability to import camera raw files directly via USB connection or Wi-Fi LR Mobile has limited usage. Currently the only way to do this is via the Cloud using Smart Previews or the tablet/phone's own camera (Android only). What does one do when working in the field with "real" camera equipment and no Internet connection or access to their LR desktop system?
Here's what's missing inside LR Mobile:
1) Provide the ability to import camera raw (and Smart Preview DNGs) using direct USB-to-USB connection. Support 1) camera USB to tablet USB, 2) card reader USB to tablet USB.
2) Provide the ability to convert camera raw files to Smart Preview DNGs locally on the tablet/phone.
3) Provide the ability to review, keyword, rate, and edit the "directly loaded" images using Smart Previews in the field (the same as Cloud loaded images).
4) Provide the ability in LR desktop app to 'Import' or 'Sync' the "directly loaded" camera raw and companion Smart Previews using USB connection.
Does that make sense? I think so, but many argue that's simply not the intended usage of LR Mobile.
That said providing LR Mobile with the above suggested capability on a phone or tablet may not be practical due to hardware performance and battery run-time limitations. How about using the Microsoft Surface Pro with the desktop version of LR? It also has hardware and battery run-time limitations compared to a good laptop. Since LR Desktop requires more system resources than LR Mobile the Surface Pro or MacBook Air probably aren't a much better solution. For now a high-performance laptop with LR Desktop installed is your best option for handling raw images in the field.
We put a man on the Moon in 1969 with less system capability than your Smartphone....Adobe, what's wrong with this picture?
