Hi, new but been with you forever, & am sure this has been answered before... I'll be teaching an IPhone Camera Course soon, so I shd know this! Need your help - I'm from the film days, made the trans to digital, trying to come to terms with phone photo. Need to know how to explain/understand the difference of quality. I am a purist by heart but sometimes you have to go with technology, I'm trying,. Some say they are very close & that it's not the "tool" it's the user. I have taken several courses on iPhone Photography & am amazed at the controls that are available. I'll stop now and ask for any advice or views. thx in advance

Almost the wrong question today here. We are more at discussing DSLR vs MILC quality? For convenience I sometimes use my Samsung Galaxy Note8, but not for quality. I'll leave you with that.

Difference of what quality? What does you purist by heart vs technology statement even mean?!
The basic difference between a phone camera and a dedicated camera is the phone. Take away the phone and you have a point and shoot with a tiny little lens. You are limited to what you can do with this point and shoot by that tiny little lens. Regardless of how many available controls, it is digital photography and there are plenty of electronic tools available to manipulate the digital image, your plethora of controls, unless you do something about the little tiny lens, you will be limited by it. You say you have taken several courses on iPhone photography and will be conducting a course on iPhone photography. Tell your students what you as a student, learned. What else is there.

When I say I'm a purist I've been in photography since "1971" Done all the dark room stuff and loved getting my nails yellow, that kind of purist! And no, you are limited if you don't at least look into and explore what you are afraid to find out!

Stopping action is a limitation in my view. So is high ISO shooting, but that continues to improve across the board. Simply go out and try to duplicate the kind of work you can do with a DSLR on a phone and I think someone with your experience level will find the answers.

Produce (if you can) a 24 x 20 print from a 'Top of the range DSLR' and a 24 x 20 from your I phone, of the same subject. Ask your students if they can see any difference in quality. Also ask yourself if you can see any difference. Like to know the results.

Just know, my fellow UHHers, I'll be watching and learning from you. In my fall Physics class, I teach lens formulas and have a cluster of photography majors. I do not "do" phone photography, hence the reason why I'll be reading everything you post ... and possibly use in my fall Physic class.

I thank you in advance.
Bill

Thank you... for that, Yes there are limitations, but you can change the ISO & Shutter speed, you can lock focus, & at the same time control exposure in a different area of the photo. While visualizing u can adjust different areas of the scene for front or back light. I will do exactly what you asked and show up here with results...because I want to know myself

Cellphone photography is wonderful !
You’ll never miss a shot, share instantly with family and friends..
But there are limitations.
Optical physics comes into play.
That’s the reality.
DSLR photography vs cellphone photography ?
When you begin to reproduce photographs beyond a 5x7 the DSLR is simply superior.
Comparing a cellphone to a DSLR is like comparing a point-and-shoot to a DSLR.
And many point-and-shoots are superior to a cellphone, optically.
