    Hi all just a general question as I've seen some amazing pics on here taken by a phone camera. Just wondering if there is any app or lenses that you can buy to improve quality especially under actinic light?

    you can also get gel sheets that will help reduce the amount of blue that phones just dont seem to be able to process

    Just get the wrapper of the toffee pennies that come in quality street and put them over the lens. Job done and you get to eat a tub of sweets.

    Have you tried doing LEDs on full white setting with say 10% blue?
