    It seems like so many smartphones these days have their own built in cameras that rival the pro cameras out there. They may not be able to everything a photographer would want them to do, but it does more than enough for most people I’d say. Anyway, do you think smartphone cameras will get so good that they rival that of traditional cameras?

    Honestly, I don’t think so. If you’re a professional photographer yes, but for the general public, smartphones are mostly enough for them when it comes to photography. You can take some really good photos with smartphones these days, but professional cameras will still do a better job at getting the best results.

    Smart Phones have become the king of gadgets. The camera updates on the latest smartphones have pushed mobile photography to new heights. With the advent of multiple lens in Smart Phones, they have started to catch up with DSLR cameras. With Tele zooming lens, Ultra Wide lens and Macro lens all incorporated in One Smart Phones, makes them rival even Professional DSLR camera. For Photo Enthusiast, Smart Phones would be more than enough.

    Nothing can be like dslr camera. The pictures are so beautiful with superb clarity. On the professional front, dslr would be the best. Smartphones are great for the day to day life. I have so many pictures printed from my smartphone which we have taken for many occasions.

    With the advent of camera in smartphones, it cannot be denied that interest in photography as a hobby as well as professional photography have certainly increased. Though for an amateur, a smartphone with decent camera might be enough, when it comes to professional photography people prefer a dedicated camera like a DSLR, if involved in the photography business. Todays advancement in smartphones highlights specification of the camera and it is not surprising to see a 104 pixel with wide angle and telephoto lens. When you zoom in with a smartphone camera, the image is only enlarged digitally which indirectly translates to low quality whereas in dedicated camera such as DSLR with interchangeable lens, the lens manipulates the light which is sent to sensor resulting in better picture quality. But I am sure the day is not far when we see an improved inbuilt camera which will give superior quality similar to a professional camera.

    DSLR have their own charm, even with all these advanced cameras in smart phone, it can’t still catch up in terms of optical zoom functions. The photos take in DSLR in raw mode’s clarity can’t be matched by smart phones as the photo is pure and the memory of each photo exceeds 50 Mb that would be hindrance in smart phone. I take my DSLR during my nature trips with my friends.

    Ameture or hobby photographers will be happy with the quality of phone camera. Of course the latest mobile do have decent cameras and ironically, many phones selling point seems to be the camera. Professionals, of course will always prefer dedicated camera like DSLR, which alone will give them satisfaction, I am sure.

    Phone cameras are more than enough but if you want to take professional photos for lamination or to print, then go for DSLR.

    I will always need my camera for certain jobs, but I use my smartphone camera A LOT. Combining convenience and quality is helpful, but I find it hard to adjust as needed on the fly with a smartphone. I did move to mirrorless which has given me lighter and more convenient piece of equipment without losing any quality.
