I have an iphone 14 pro max and a nikon z7ii. The best camera is the one you have with you. My phone is with me always. I would NOT take photos with my phone in a planned shoot. That said, I bought the iphone 14 pro max for the megapixels of the camera and the convenience of always having a worthy camera in my possession. I consider the iphone 14 pro max a worthy camera when it is the only one I have with me. Many shots benefit from some cropping. Having the extra megapixels to crop is one of the reasons for the iphone 14, and also one of the benefits of the z7ii.

Yep! And and the 14 Pro Max has a 48 megapixel sensor!

Yeah, but it's a pretty darn small sensor and packing all those pixels onto a sensor that small isn't necessarily a good thing.

But it still takes amazingly good photo's, one might not like the look of 16" X 20" prints so well.

Yes, it is quite capable of recording amazing images, but them a whole lot of digital cameras are. Amazingly good photos are usually the result of the individual taking the photo.

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?

Right now, a smart phone has at least four weaknesses. If none of them is important to you, you don’t need a “real camera”.

1. A smart phone has a limited number of prime lenses built in. You can use one more expansive than needed, then crop down to what you really want. If you still have at least as many pixels as you want, you are ‘golden’.

2. A smart phone doesn’t have a viewfinder. If you can still see it in sunlight, you are golden.

3. In most cases, a smart phone gives you no control over DOF. If you style has no need for ‘subject isolation’, you are golden.

4. Typically, a smart phone provides no control over shutter speed {I often photograph moving trains, and need a fast shutter speed}. If motion is not a problem for you, you are golden.

In short, a smart phone is a modern “Instamatic”; it’s weaknesses are things that are important only to people who take their photography really seriously.

The iPhone metering system is flat out better than Nikons - and I have taken over two million pictures

You've been busy. Even a hundred pictures a day, day in and day out for over fifty years, I don't believe you'd have made two million pictures, nevermind the time it would take to put them in some sort of viewable form. Now I could be completely wrong, I haven't actually put this to the calculator. Regardless of how many pictures you have made, what is your basis for saying that the i phone metering is "flat out better Nikons"?" Some may want to know which Nikons?

If you shoot a photo per second, that's 64000 in 18 hours.

What do you do in your spare time? 2000000, hard to swallow.

That's why they make chocolate AND vanilla.
