PS cameras vs Cell phone cameras
Jun 11, 2014


As far as i know the quality of a picture depends on the lens quality rather than the mega pixels. I read some where that you only need a basic mega pixel for a professional quality shot ( like 5-7 MP) and then the rest is done by lense quality.

And most lenses of quality are of good size and weight. And also price when the f value goes down.

My doubt is :

How come some cell phone cameras are able to produce such great shots? They have too small lenses and surely inexpensive compared to PS type cameras like canon powershot series.

ps: I recently had a chance to click some shots with iphone and was amazed at the quality of pictures and the continuous shutter activation which is a big thing even for expensive professional cameras. OR has things changed to much in the last couple years?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
