5 Reasons You Should Be Using Lightroom Mobile’s Built-in Camera

Lightroom Mobile’s built-in camera is one kick butt little app — it’s one of the most underrated parts of Lightroom Mobile, and that’s why today I wanted to share “5 Reasons You Should Be Using Lightroom Mobile’s Built-in Camera”

When you shoot with it, your photos are automatically sync’d back to your desktop, and to your other mobile devices as well (i.e. your iPad or Android tablet).

It has a built-in level, so you visually straighten your shot before you take it (see below #2 — that broken white line turns yellow and straight when your image is level).

It has a live highlight clipping warning (it uses the “zebra” warning technique to let you know which areas are clipping). Seen above at #3 — those black and white zebra’d areas up at the top center are clipping.

It has the easiest to use Exposure Compensation ever — just tap on the screen and swipe left or right to darken or brighten before you take the shot. No trying to hit a tiny little scroll that is hit/miss most of the time. You’ll wonder why every camera app doesn’t do it like this (well, if they have exposure compensation in the first place)

It has Live Shooting Filters — you can see a preview of what applying various built-in effects filters would look like before you even take the shot. It’s like “pre-processing” instead of “post-processing.”

Give the Lightroom Mobile camera a try this week, and by Friday, you’ll be using it as your main camera from now on — it’s that much better. 🙂

Hope you have an awesome Monday to kick off your week!



P.S. I posted the images (and the story) from my shoot at the Atlanta Falcons new stadium, including my game coverage of the Falcons/Packers game over on Adobe Spark Page. That stadium is just incredible! Here’s the link if you’ve got a sec.
