Lol @ people comparing DSLRs and phone cameras. I drive a Focus ST, turbo 250HP 6spd hot hatch, but I'm not going to be having any delusions about challenging a Z06. I know exactly why the Z06 costs 3 times as much as my car and I don't think for a second that it is overpriced.
You would be surprised at how many iPhone owners claim that it takes as good a picture as a DSLR.
In my experience, even a mid to high end point and shoot does better than an iPhone.
What caught my attention was that Samsung was using optical zoom from S4 time, I don't remember this being mentioned in ads but I could have missed it.
Not a chance that an iPhone takes better photos than a $1000-$2000.
Probably not as good as today's $150 point and shoot because of the optical zoom.
But it depends on the camera. I had a Canon medium P&S that seemed to screw up the auto exposure and auto focus. The iPhone 5 did a better job most times. I switched to a Sony $200 P&S and it is superior.
But compared to a 6-10 yr old P&S, a newer smartphone camera is probably better.
Many people haven't buy a new camera in 10 years, so to them the iPhone 6 is better. But not a DSLR of $3000 worth.
Another reason for people making these ridiculous conclusions is the dumbing down of photography for Facebook or Instagram. A casual shot for social media taken with a DSLR is probably not much different from a camera phone and if that is the pinnacle of someone's photography, then yes, a DSLR is a waste.
Very well put and totally agree with you.
For social media purpose it also gives you instant gratification and that's what most are into.
Of course the best camera, is the one you have with you.
I have seen poor photos from a DSLR in the hands of amateurs, and remarkable photos with professionals using a smartphone.
A good photo is more, much more than mechanics.
