Having recently been restricted to using only my iPhone at a couple of motorcycle road races I found the native iOS Camera App lacking. Thankfully I found the Halide Camera App.
Until this point I had tried a few iOS Camera apps but always found myself going back to the original iOS Camera. ‘It just worked.’ It was handy, wasn’t full of fluff – a proper point and shoot experience, which to be fair is probably what 99% of camera phone users need 99% of the time.
Generally for motorcycle racing events I would have used my Panasonic TZ80 or Cannon DSLR – the ability for a fast shutter is obvious when motorcycles scream past you at speeds I could only guess.
For reasons outside of my control I found myself at the 2019 Cookstown 100, and 2019 Tandragee 100 road races with only my iPhone X. It was instantly apparent that the native iOS app was not going to produce images that were in anyway usable for me – I should be more specific – the native iOS was not going to produce images of the racing and moving motorcycles that were in anyway usable.
