Whether you need to edit on the fly or you can't justify dropping a large wad of cash on a editing machine, making adjustments on Lightroom mobile could be an option for you. But can it handle 100 megapixel raw files, and if so, how well?
Richard Ng of ZP Productions is a talented portrait and cosplay photographer from Singapore and in his latest video, he tests the capabilities of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Lightroom mobile. For the bulk of Ng's work, he uses the Fujifilm GFX 100 which is a heavy duty medium format body, producing 100 megapixel raw files as the name implies. The difficulty of that size file is twofold, however: storage and editing.
I shot for a while with the GFX 100 at Fuji's launch event for it in Tokyo and the files were staggering, both in flex and detail, as well as in size. I built my current PC so that it would never break a sweat when editing video or photo files, but it was still noticeably slower than out of my Sony. Well, this video might surprise you. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 does well — very well in fact — and might even out perform some lower-end laptops and desktop computers.
