iPhone 15 Pro Max 48MP DNG: Smeared Detail-Free Garbage

I shot a couple of DNG on the iPhone 15 Pro Max tonight.

Worst file quality I have seen in a DNG, ever. Smeared detail-free crap in a 93MB file. OMG what a farce. 48 megapixels (quad Bayer is a turd technology) downsampled to 12 still looks like crap.

I’ll shoot something in brighter light tomorrow to double-check, but the shot I took had highly favorable pleasing light just as the sun went down and looks nice overall, but pixel quality is garbage.

I don’t know what people are smoking to think it’s even a tiny fraction of a real camera.

That said, iPhone 15 Pro Max images look nice on the phone and will do fine at Instagram size.

Video quality is the same crap level stuff.

I think I’ll just stick to HEIC and JPEG and accept what I get. I am not going to waste my storage on 93MB DNG files that are basically a manure pile.
