Does any UHH member have an Iphone 14 and a "real" Camera? Would you take shots with both?

I recently was in the market for a compact camera such as a Sony RX 100 VII. After much consideration, I opted to upgrade my IPhone 7+ to the IPhone 14 Pro, I am very pleased with the camera in it.

Amazing camera vs amazing smartphone. Interesting choice. And, good decision. It is odd how hard it might be to choose between being a "camera person" and a "phone person".

Good image files are good regardless of what captured them.

Amazing how that works out, eh?

I have/use an iPhone (iCamera) 13Pro and a Nikon D3400. Each has it's own value.

For instance the iCamera allowed my first pictures of the Milky Way and M31 galaxy. It is great for landscapes (.5x, 1x, and 3x optical zoom) and night photography. The Nikon is fantastic for freeze motion (humming birds and insects). It also can work as a "close up" (not macro) with a shallow depth of field. As a beginner "bird watcher" the Nikon is perfect for capturing that flitting critter (high ISO and fast shutter).

They are both "Real" cameras and due to their differing designs they fill different needs. I love both of them.

In pro mode you can do the same thing with your phone. Change shutter speed, aperture, iso.

There has been a lot of talk about cell phone cameras. I would like to suggest a way to get insight into the difference between 8*10 or UHD TV or UHD monitor or UHD monitor.
Can pros tell the difference? On what criteria? Can amateurs tell the difference?

1) pick a few objects, a book, a knick-knack, a pet, a stop sign, a ruler, a piece of graph paper.
2) from a variety of positions and distances, take pairs of pictures 1 from each device.
3) for each pair flip a coin as to which to display first.
4) ask the person looking at the pair which is better? Which is from the phone?

Is there an arithmetical way to to compare zooming, moving closer, and cropping from a higher megapixel file?

Well if you ask me I would tell you that an iPhone is a good snap shot taker and is unable to shoot anything that is moving unless you want to take a limited clip movie of it. Still sports shots are a ways away.

Just recently upgraded to the 14 pro max from iPhone 8 Plus. Very impressed and still learning of capabilities of the 14 pro max. Still have and use my Nikon D 7100 and several lenses. Use it and the iPhone sometimes at same site. The results are often quite close but Nikon lenses generally offer greater spectrum of opportunities for quality results. Trade off for me as I get older is the convenience of the iPhone relative to carting around the much heavier and bulkier Nikon along with a few lenses. I was considering moving to a mirror less camera but having to get several new lenses as well did not seem practical from cost perspective, even considering the relatively high cost of the new phone.
I’m now searching for a tripod and adaptor to support the iPhone, especially for macro work, Any suggestions?

I think BigOleArt asked a reasonable question and got cudgeled for it. There has been much back and forth about the quality of cell phone images vs those from a camera and BOA was asking if there was a way to empirically test this question. I haven't checked, but I suspect a search of google with the appropriate phrase such as Image Quality Cell Phone vs Camera would produce many examples of this having already been done.

Respectfully disagree: Most IPhone's have a Burst mode which will allow you to capture 10 images per second. On my IPhone 13 Pro Max, I'm able to capture moving objects in burst mode by pressing and sliding the shutter button to the left. It will continue to take 10 frames per second as long as I hold the button down.

Phone cameras are catching up and when you consider all the other things they are capable of doing it's no contest. My S22 Ultra has a similar burst feature and comes with a stylus that is a remote camera trigger.

Fake ones are just for aesthetic looks and movie props.

I helped my mentor bag the last new Tele Rolleiflex in the world. We had to wait til the movie makers finished with it. It was in use as a prop for the ringside actors (as press photographers) in "The Life of Mohammed Ali".

My man was hardworking. He had literally worn out his pair of Rolleis !

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I once loaded a Nikon F for him for an out of his realm task. He only knew how to load a Rollei. He had only a verrrrry minimal need of the Nikon, no need to learn how to load or unload it. A few frames would do it. He would also sub out jobs to me that needed a 4x5. All he knew was Rolleis !

He never taught me camera use, just lab work. Lab work itself teaches you basic camera use ... except how to load it :-)

I have had the iPhone 14 pro for about 2 months now. Also have a Z9 and D850.
Have been using my iPhone a lot. Have posted photos in the iPhone thread.
That doesn’t mean I’m giving up the cameras for serious needs.
Sunset I took with iPhone.
