    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).

    Not an IPhone but an Android.

    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    filters were applied but I agree, cool shot. Started a ride at 6am and got a sunrise over fog and mist in the valley below. Awesome day!

    National Trail in Phoenix.



    Hawes Trail also in Phoenix.



    Road ride by the White Tank Mountains in Phoenix.



    No filters or anything, just good ole iPhone 4S. So much easier to upload with photobucket!

    This was taken by my 4S during a leisurely cruise along the Erie Canal. My buddy ran it through Photoshop for some color touch up.

    Some great shots in here guys...love mobile photos!

    just took this one today. My HT and FS bikes.

    I used the Camera+ app to give the sunlight flare. Then I played with it again in iPhoto.

    From the local hills

    There's some great photos in here, special mention to Drevil for the super panning shot and spacedweller for those two excellent contre-jour selfies.

    Just picked up a second hand On-One Inbred and took it for it's maiden spin a few days ago...



    I've only joined this site recently, I seem to have trouble viewing a lot of the photos in threads, some are just a blank space and others have a box that says 'attached thumbnails' that either don't link to anything or just link to a white dot on a black screen, is that normal?
