Portrait mode vs DSLR! Can software processing on our phones FINALLY match the output from a standalone camera? Is Portrait Mode a worthy competitor to a nice camera body and fast glass? Years ago I produced a comparison where DSLR’s handily crushed phone cameras, but for consumers, the battle is a LOT closer. Let’s take a quick look at some samples, and see how far phones have improved!
A wonderful question from one of my YouTube viewers, Will F.
“What are your thoughts about the images with respect to sharing? At sharing size (Facebook, etc), only so much detail is really visible. It seems like the 1020 would be overkill in these situations, especially since you have to do a little extra work to get the full size images off of the phone. My only real gripe about this phone is the slow shot-to-shot time.”
Let’s take a look at some pics from the 1020, and see if we can address Will’s concerns about the camera!
