A Beginner’s Guide to Digital Photography: DSLR Vs Phone Camera

Things To Remember

  1. If you have a 13MP camera smartphone, according to your professional need, you won’t get better results as per your requirements because there is a big difference between the aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and the lens size of the smartphone camera and digital camera. In digital cameras, the lens can be changed, and more outstanding images can be captured.
  2. The most important thing in a digital camera is the lens size and not the Megapixel. Thus the interchangeability of lenses is the best part of camera and professional uses. Yes, coming to the regular users, phone camera can fulfill common man’s demand, because as mentioned earlier, compared to digital cameras, the camera of the smartphone is handy and easy to operate, as not everyone would be comfortable with the manual settings of the camera.
  3. There is one more myth regarding the megapixels. It is like if a camera has more megapixels, it is best than the rest! (That is the reason why I mentioned that ‘understand the science behind the camera’ thing at the beginning of this article!) Let’s take an example, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has a 13MP camera, and the Galaxy S5 has a 16MP camera. The Sony Xperia Z2 comes with a 20.7MP camera. But the camera on Apple’s extraordinary iPhone – the iPhone 5s – only offers 8MP. Does this mean that Apple’s iPhone camera is worse than other phone cameras that offer more megapixels? Nooo. The result is in front of our eyes. So, the point to prove is that the game is not about how many megapixels a camera is having. The whole game depends on the lenses. Judge and decide by that stuff!

Woaaahh! So many updates are going on in the mind right? Let’s make it a bit simple. Let’s have a summary of advantages of both the cameras – smartphone cameras as well as digital cameras.
