Explore Mobile Photography Mastery with Gary McIntyre using the iPhone 15 Pro Max and Reeflex Pro App. Unleash creative potential through advanced manual controls and exceptional image quality! 📱✨

The iPhone 15 Pro Max could possibly be considered one of the best mobile phone cameras for modern photography and videography. With a sophisticated camera system, and when paired with the Reeflex Pro app, it becomes even more powerful. This app unlocks the full potential of iPhone photography, allowing users to have complete control over their shots.

Having recently moved from the Google Pixel 6 Pro to the iPhone, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of images it produced. Sure, I had read all the articles about the camera system, including one by Lee Morris, and as a long-time Android user, I was hesitant but also looking for something the Android system never gave me. The Google Pixel provided me with a great mobile camera over the two years I owned it, and at times, a new color gamut, but I always felt that there was just something missing.

Mobile photography accounts for 92.5% of the 5 billion photographs taken per day on average. Although a majority of these could simply be selfies, as it seems to be these days, the technology is advancing, and the apps need to keep up with this advancement; enter the Reeflex Pro Camera app. The app's host of manual controls allows us, the photographers, to finely tune the image before capture, providing a powerful combination of slimline technology, portability, and endless potential. Sure, it'll never equal your camera's sensor, but the old adage that the best camera is the one you have with you certainly speaks volumes here.

The Reeflex Pro App: Elevating Photographic Creativity

Among the countless camera apps out there, the Reeflex Pro app stands out for me. I had researched other photographic apps, watched videos and reviews, but I was always drawn back to the videos by Glyn Dewis and saw the potential of the app. With its user-friendly interface, it effortlessly blends with the impressive features of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, providing a wide range of manual controls that take your photography skills to a whole new level. The app boasts an impressive user-friendly design, catering to beginners and experienced photographers alike. Its interface feels natural to navigate, providing easy access to a wide range of powerful tools without overwhelming the user.

Manual Controls

As you know, the real magic of photography lies in mastering and playing with different elements of capturing images, and Reeflex Pro truly shines by offering a wide range of manual controls. With this app, you can finely adjust settings such as shutter speed, ISO, white balance, focus, and exposure compensation with accuracy, giving you the freedom to create images that perfectly match your artistic vision.

The Reeflex Pro app gives you the power to control shutter speed, allowing you to capture scenes with sharpness and clarity. Whether you want to freeze fast-moving subjects or experiment with long exposures for artistic effects like light trails, this app lets you master the concept of time in a single frame.

Grasping the complexities of light and color temperature is challenging when aiming for great photos. The Reeflex Pro app makes this easier with its manual ISO and white balance settings. These features enable you to adapt to various lighting conditions, ensuring accurate color depiction and minimal noise, even in challenging environments.

With the app’s precise focus control, simply touch the screen and fine-tune from there. You can easily choose the focal point, ensuring that the subject remains sharp and prominent. Additionally, the exposure compensation feature allows you to make slight adjustments to brightness levels, enabling you to capture the perfect exposure, even in difficult lighting situations. If you download the app and try it for yourself, remember it's a mobile phone sensor, so let the screen refresh for your EV adjustment before taking your shot.

The app takes full advantage of the lenses on the iPhone while still providing all the manual controls you'd expect from a regular camera. I have spent a majority of my time using the app to capture ICM imagery, which, considering what the app can do in terms of manual controls, may seem a little wasteful. For me, I’m aware of the strengths and weaknesses of the camera, and the app for that matter. However, it is taking me on a new experimental journey with mobile photography, and I’m getting a lot of pleasure from that, so it’s a positive thing.


With a choice of shooting formats like JPG, raw, and pro-raw, you can edit your images on the go with mobile apps or export them and edit them later on your desktop applications. The resulting file sizes vary depending on your choice, but so far, I’ve found the resulting DNG images good to edit and of decent quality considering the sensor size and lenses, which you have to account for.



The iPhone 15 Pro Max, along with the Reeflex Pro app’s manual controls, completely transforms the world of mobile photography, at least it did for me. It goes beyond mere convenience and provides a sophisticated platform for unleashing your creative photography skills.

With continuous technological progress, mobile photography has become a perfect blend of creativity and skill, presenting boundless avenues for exploration. By fully utilizing the camera system of the iPhone 15 Pro Max and taking advantage of the manual controls of the Reeflex Pro app, you now have the freedom and ability to travel light, if you wish, and still capture great-looking images.

Will mobile photography ever surpass traditional photography with dedicated cameras? The answer is clear even before finishing the question - it won’t. Apps like Reeflex are here to enhance and improve the camera you always have with you. And the Reeflex Camera Pro app does exactly that.

Personally, I’m excited to take my iPhone 15 out, set it up on a tripod, and just have fun experimenting with it. I love the simplicity and functionality of the app's controls, and the results I’m getting are impressive. Of course, it won’t replace my camera, but that’s not its purpose. The app is designed to complement an already fantastic mobile phone camera. If you’re curious to try it out yourself, you can download it from the App Store.
