E Some photographers always say that mobile phone cameras are as good as DSLR cameras. Until now I always just shook my head over this topic, but in the last time I started to also photograph a little bit with my phone always when I didn't took my camera with me but found a nice motive. You could nearly say it was a little self experiment for me. To just strengthen my opinion. By the way I used an iPhone SE for the pictures. I thought a little while, if I really want to post phone pictures on my blog and then I thought: Well, why not. But this post is not only to show you my phone pictures, it's also because I want to hear your opinion:
Are smartphone cameras as good as DSLR cameras by now?
My answer to this question is no. I have to admit that with good daylight phone cameras do a pretty good job, but if the light isn't that good they start do take really noisy pictures. I edited the photos just like I would do it with my normal photos and I mourn a little bit about RAW-development, with JPG you just don't have so much scope. Moreover the scope of camera settings is also missing.
For me this was a really interesting self-experiment and I'm happy with the results. My opinion is still the same but it's maybe not so strict anymore.
Now some words to the pictures: I made the first one when I had to do a seminar for my studies on a Saturday. We were all pretty amused about the fact that the university was ghostly empty. And the university also seemed pretty current-saving because all the lights were turned off.
The second picture is from the big firework of the harbors birthday. I left my camera at home because I just wanted to enjoy the moment. But I really had to take one picture with my phone.
I made the next picture at Jungfernstieg, were a shopping center is getting rebuild. I really liked the quote.
The forth picture shows a abandoned filling station, that I found recently. You will soon hear more about it, because some days later I had a great photo shooting over there.
The last picture shows the harbors birthday again, it's made on the same spot as the firework picture and it shows a big cruiser driving into the harbor.
So what do you think of the pictures? Do you take a lot of photos with your phone?
