Smartphone Cameras nowadays are the best they have ever been. And since I just got a new one, I decided to pitch it against my trusty Canon M5 in a fun little shootout.
And I can definitely say that Image Quality is definitely getting there. Dynamic Range really is not even close, but the Phone can give you some awesome Fotos!
I have edited all my Fotos with the same Presets and tried to get their Exposure to a similar level.
And I was able to edit the Phones DNG Files way better than I anticipated. The only downside is that while I can shoot RAW on my Camera no matter what Lens I use, the Phone does not allow me to do so on the Ultrawide Setting.
Overall, I am extremely impressed by my new Phone, which is an iPhone 11 by the way. It’s Camera is way better then anything I have ever seen on a Phone, and my old iPhone 6s was not a slouch either.
Technology really has come a long way since late 2015!
What I have noticed though is that Fotos from the iPhone are generally quite a bit brighter than those from my Canon M5. The Dynamic Range also is not quite there.
Also, the Ultrawide 13mm Lens on the iPhone is a little whiter than the 16mm equivalent on my Camera.
The best Camera is always the one you have got with you. A Phone will always beet a professional Camera that is just sitting on a Shelf collecting Dust.
But I will not discard my Canon. Dynamic Range and Lens Selection is just way better.
I used Lightroom on my iPhone to both shoot and edit the Fotos.
