I believe that a college degree is still available in Photography. Has any University offered a course in cell phone? I cannot see why not, since there are so many being used.

Why is the camera data as blurred as the actual photo? Fiddling!

I hope not.

That's a nice shot that deserves to be seen in download. I'm guessing you are U.K. or Commonwealth or is the game gaining ground in other locations?


Thanks. Uploading through phone was difficult. I’m actually in the states (NJ). I work for a company that is based in India and obviously you know cricket is the sport there.

Your arrogance is showing. Take a look at what Emil Pakarklis does with an iPhone in his YouTube videos. I suspect that a modern college level course would cover all devices with their pros and cons.

The biggest thing I do not like about cell phones photos is having to frame the shot on the camera screen. I like a view finder.

The biggest thing I do not like about my DSLR is the bulk of the camera.

My favorite camera is an old Olympus with a non detachable short zoom lens, video view finder, and very little bulk. Its chief disadvantage is the 3.2 megapixels when I want to crop and enlarge.

Image quality of any camera is a function of photographers needs. Not everyone cares about megapixels when they are sending their kid's photo to family and friends, also, not every one entering a contest needs the latest and greatest technical gear to win.

I think it depends more on what you’re trying to portray rather than the technical specs of the device. Phone cameras are not designed to match the specs of a high end DSLR or mirrorless and so there are takeoffs that the user has to make.

You are excluding many serious photographers like me who use the Zone System with their smart phones.

Did you ever try to print a phone pic bigger than 4x6?
I agree that phones get amazing results considering the hardware limitations (tiny sensor, tiny lens), but it ain't the same thing. Phones get snapshots. DSLR's are capable of much more.


I have made excellent 8x10 prints from cell phone images, and mine is an older model. The newest phones can probably go to at least 11x14.

Not when you consider how many hogs insist that shooting RAW is the only decent way - and quote DR as the reason.

If you want to be a better photographer, buy better equipment.

I just bought my first iPhone, a TracFone LG REBEL 4 lte. Had our first light snow last night, so I thought I'd see how it worked in low light as compared to my Pentax K-70 with a Tamron 75-300mm 4.0-5.6 lens. the top pic is the TracFone; bottom Pentax. Far as I can tell using this particular phone camera anyway, they've got a ways to go yet....if ever. This was shot with available light.

Just this past weekend while I was taking pictures at my church, one of the musicians asked me to take some photos of him at his drum kit. All the other photos that had been taken of him with cell phones, he did not like. He really did like the ones i took of him and his kit. That was quite a surprise and a pleasant one at that.

Everyone at the church has a camera that happens to have a phone in it. I have one too. However, i have become known as the official photographer for the church newsletter and for our FB page. Others post as well, but I am real careful with mine as I curate them. I straighten if needed, tweek this or that and they come out better than those people take with their phones. I am appreciated for my art, and not just for snapping a couple of pictures.

I have enlarged to 16”x20” with an iPhone 7+.
Very impressive.
