PureShot Let’s You Shoot and Save Uncompressed TIFF Images on Your iPhone

PureShot Let’s You Shoot and Save Uncompressed TIFF Images on Your iPhone

Although I have two point-n-shoots and a DSLR handy for taking pictures, it’s my iPhone 5 that generally gets the most use. Why? Because I have it with me almost all the time too. Not to mention I can shoot, edit (sometimes), and share a photo from my iPhone much, much faster than I ever could with my other cameras (import into a device, check, post, etc). Still, I prefer to shoot in RAW or have my pictures compresses as little as possible when I have the option. Less compression equals more flexibility editing. If there is more of the original photo left for me to work with I can push the boundaries of the image much better. Alas, that function isn’t in most iPhone apps. Until now. PureShot lets you save an uncompressed dRAW (aka TIFF) image. Results? Well, not what you might expect.
