DSLR vs Phone camera

I bought a DSLR few years back as I wanted to take my photography to next level. I used it extensively, took it everywhere I went, even though it was a major inconvenience, it didn’t matter much because I loved it. Then something happened, I bought a new smartphone. It had this amazing camera with all the latest features including the pro mode, so naturally I loved it more. It was enough for me to completely forget my DSLR.

The qurantine was hard initially because I couldn’t go out any more and take pictures. So I figured why not start taking pictures indoor with all the fancy things I own (books and gourmet teas). I started with my phone camera but something didn’t feel right, eventually I realised it was time for my DSLR to be of soe use. And as I had no work at all I took several pictures with phone and then with DSLR as an experiment and I found this-

(Left: DSLR pictures, Right: Phone pictures)

DSLR: Canon 750D (18-55mm lens)

PROS:

  1. Depth of field
  2. Image quality
  3. Colors, details, ambience
  4. Control over angles

CONS:

  1. Expensive
  2. Learning curve
  3. Not very handy

Phone: Redmi Note 7 Pro

PROS:

  1. Easy to use
  2. Cheap
  3. Lots of available apps/filters
  4. Portable

CONS:

  1. Image quality
  2. Not that defined depth of field
  3. Modifies the colors

In the end, I feel, it doesn’t matter how costly your camera is, or how many lenses you own, if you have that spark, it will be very hard to hide it.

So keep clicking!

  2. You must have heard this or maybe experience it that if you are passionate about photography and you got the eye for details, equipment doesn’t matter….a basic 8mp phone camera is enough or a handy digicam. But there are times whenyou crave for a dslr when you see the star lit sky or a gorgeous bird or something that catches your eye from far away.
