    Your Best MTB Pics with the iPhone

    The bad news is that the iPhone is not as good as having your DSLR with you on the trail. The good news is the iPhone is so easy to take with you instead of lugging the big rig.

    I'd like to see what people are doing on the trails with the iPhone. Stills, action, artsy-fartsy, filters, whatever.

    I'm interested to see what can be done with the iPhone on a MTB ride. Show 'em if ya got 'em!

    Please keep them small enough that we won't have to scroll to see the whole pic. Any information about setup, techniques, settings, post-processing, etc. is welcome and encouraged.

    I toss this one in to get the ball rolling. Just desaturated it, and then ran it through the Smart Blur in Photoshop.

    I'm a terrible photographer, so no skill involved here. The backdrop makes it. (It's just a re-sized raw iPhone photo)

    This one is after several rides worth of dist built up I thought the shiny was in the chain looked cool while the rest was dirty.


    And here's one from a ride a week ago. I had never taken this one off branch and came to the shore.

    I took this in Moab, UT with an iPhone 4 in 2011 on Amasa Back trail. I do carry my Nikon D5000 occasionally but not on THIS trail as there's a lot to contend with technically

    The best camera is the one you have with you! Couple of my favs





    I think the iPhone (4S) camera is actually pretty good. The panorama feature is awesome. Generally the pics from it benefits greatly from some smart sharpening in photoshop.

    Just about all my pictures are taken with my iPhone. I believe I modified it with Instagram.

    I don't claim to be a photographer, but I do think the iPhone 5 has a decent camera. And much easier to carry than my Sony Nex,

    Sweet panning shot with your iPhone. I'm inspired to try some of these myself.

    A couple of Iphone 4S pics. Taken and post-processed with the Camera+ app (phone with timer, placed on a rock).

    This (a +50% crop) was taken at about 7,000 feet and the valley floor below is at <500 feet.

    The iphone makes for a sweet little camera to use while riding.
