| Daily Observations Podcast

Seems there's a difference between the A9X processors in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus depending on if they come from Samsung or TSMC. Dave Hamilton and Bryan Chaffin join Jeff Gamet to talk about battery performance based on which version is in your iPhone, and how you can find out if yours is from Samsung or TSMC. They also look at Adobe's new change that lets you use Lightroom on your iPhone or iPad without a Creative Cloud subscription.

Free Lightroom for iOS isn’t nearly as big a deal as you’re making it to be. Yes, Lightroom is a solid app but without the creative cloud subscription then it suffers from the same problems as every single other “Pro” editing apps:

—- Without a file system or Creative Cloud then Lightroom is downgraded to being a Pro tool for editing consumer level iPhone photos.——

Sure, Lightroom can handle a mostly desktop editing experience on an iPad Air2 or Pro, but how the heck do you get files on and off the iPad?!? The flaky Camera Connection Kit? The outdated iTunes sync? Large File Airdrop? 

And this is what makes Apples newfound love for “creatives” such BS. IF Apple wanted creatives to consider the iPad Pro as a “creatives tool” then they wouldn’t have killed Aperture. And that is because Aperture would have been the only PROFESSIONAL Apple solution for syncing a desktop and tablet workflow between ONE App.  But instead were figuring out to how cram in several apps and pay services to do the job that Apple already mastered and killed.

(Yes, as a photographer then I’m heartbroken and bitter) :D
