Recently had a debate about the differences in quality of images between phones and SLR cameras made me think that I’d never actually compared the two – just was aware of the difference in quality. So I thought this morning I’d have a look .
I decided to photograph flowers on the windowsill, using just available light. The phone is an Iphone 3, camera Nikon D7000 using a 18-200mm Nikon lens f3.5-5.6 .
The resulting photos – admittedly all reduced to less than 650×650 pixels for web viewing ( but that’s a constant) Images need to be clicked on to see full size :
The real test is looking up close at the images – as to how they will appear when printed at a reasonable size – 8×6″ plus. I have cropped in on both images for both appliances. These are the results of cropping in PS. Again the resultant crop can be seen on clicking each image – which I strongly recommend you do to see the full difference.
At Weddings I regularly come across guests taking the same image as myself, after I have arranged all the guests in an expert manner, and the image is caught for them on a phone or compact camera – which they seem happy with as the images are rarely bought from my site, as I hasten to say, are available at a very reasonable prices. I know what I’d prefer for my next wedding 😉
Plus, I’m not even going to go into what my camera can do in the studio in comparison to the IPhone or on location with a handful of filters!!
