ozturert: When phones were reasonably priced, I also used to say "phone is always with me so I can buy a good phone with a good camera".
Now the high-end phones are so ridiculously expensive that you can buy a good phone and an excellent pocket size camera for the same price.
1000+ USD is way too much to pay for a good photo.

So a 5 year old phone is slow and small and has a poor battery and probably not getting security updates

stevo23: I just don't care. I have a smartphone that does all the things I need and does them well enough. Done. Life goes on.

You cared enough to reply with a comment that adds nothing to the discussion 🤔🙄

photoaddict: I only use iPhones because they have way much better operating system and the other features are as competitive as others. I am same with MacOS. I only buy Macs because they run MacOS which is far better than any other operating systems overall and they can run non-Mac operating systems as well.

The UX matters more than many people realize.

That's because the iPhone 5 is very old. Much advances to hardware and iOS. I wasn't impressed with iPhone 4 but was with the 6 and am sold on them now.

maxz: I like my phone as a phone because it has a good quality camera. So yes, I WILL buy a phone simply because it has a better camera.

Glad you can see the marginal differences. On a big desktop computer monitor I yet at 150%, eh?

chrisno: call it smart device. its not just a phone

Not gonna happen. We're too far in. Just like it's called a cell phone when "cellular " isn't part of how it receives calls anymore

AbrasiveReducer: You mean, if a phone is a lousy phone but it gets the highest DxO score, I shouldn't buy it?

Yes

digiart: I will buy the phone I want not the phone someone wants me to buy! Sorry, but this article has very suspicious timing! Now that the iPhone has been clearly beaten in the camera department (by Huawei), all of a sudden somehow a camera review site advises us not to buy "the phone with the best camera"? ! Yeah, right...

Dude, unless you plan on using the phone solely for taking photos to immediately upload to an app for sharing, get the phone you like as an overall device better. Why? You'll be using it far more as "not a camera". Just like you don't buy the laptop because it has the best webcam if you use webcam a small percentage of the time.

Mike Davis: Yay! Lower prices!

...because it will be the Chinese product with the GoPro name slapped on it

dansclic: Buying a camera with 10 pros and eleven cons is nonsense

DPR always has a list of cons equal to the pro list. It's a joke that not having USB charging is listed as a Con

vscd: @FUJI
That's not Kayzen! Acros Neopan is an awesome film... please keep it. Look at Kodak, coming back after a few years takes more money then to keep a few meters coming out every month. I think it's very shorteyed, look at your Success on Instax. Nobody though something like Polaroid would be interesting anymore. Now it's a hype.

They are fujifilm not fuji

In reply to:

mod2001: like always with Fuji...I ignore this company both for film and digital since they stopped Neopan 1600 and later Neopan 400. Ignorant company, even worst than Sony.

Fujifilm not fuji

That is interesting, if true?

Dead, just dead

Paul JM: Even then Canon are too late already. So many people have jumped ship to other brands and simply moved on. And, to be frank, FF mirrorless is not necessarily the sweet spot for mirrorless cameras anyway. Unless Canon produced a body that would allow me to use all of my legacy Canon lenses, then I will probably just sell them and move onto mirrorless medium format, which is now at a price point that is more than FF, but not in the next galaxy anymore. Personally, for walk around and travel photography etc, I prefer the size/weight characteristics of mirrorless APSC. When I want maximum quality, I suspect that I will dump the 5DSR and buy a MF mirrorless

Canon has 48% of the ILC market which covers both dslr and evil cams

angerdan: "Editor's Note:
Pentax's DSLR-only lineup looking a little staid"
That's incorrect, since Pentax still offers the Q-system. A qucik check at any EU or global/JP website of Ricoh Imaging would have shown this.
So Pentax offers three lines of cameras/lens mounts (Q/K/645), that's more than the market leaders do.

It's Ricoh now

DFPanno: Who cares? Sony has largely displaced Leica and has done so for a fraction of the cost.

Huh? No one mentions Leica and sony in the same breath!

Nobody uses that program anymore. Went subscription only.

Iloveaircraftnoise: All the technology in the world ain't going to replace the experience of composing through an optical viewfinder.
Long live the mirror.

Vese: all that is also in live view on dslrs. But mirrorless doesn't have OVF which uses much less battery and shows exactly what's there unlike an electronic display which has color/DR limitations.

ShaiKhulud: So it's like STARVIS but from Canon? 2mpx (though Sony is producing 6mpx STARVIS as well), high ISO, professional use only.

Not bad, but I fear Canon is kinda late to the party. STARVIS is 3 years old tech by now and will be upgraded (if not already) soon.

To all trolls: there is almost nothing remotely scalable to a consumer camera here. Move along.

...so says the troll
