Is it mandatory to buy a DSLR when so many Mobile Phone cameras are present in the market?

Well, having such a question in your mind clearly indicates that you haven’t been pursuing Photography as a passion. Rather it’s just a hobby for you if you’re having such a question in your mind.

Well mobile phone cameras, and even the best ones stand nowhere in comparison to the DSLRs. Let’s just checkout the most fundamental differences between mobile phone cameras and DSLRs.​

  • Sensors – Sensors are one thing where mobile phone cameras behave dreadfully. Unlike DSLR cameras, mobile phone cameras have very tiny sized sensors and that’s why most of the low light photos suck when taken from mobile phone cameras.
  • Autofocus – To feel the difference between a mobile phone’s autofocus and a DSLR’s autofocus you must use a DSLR with a great autofocus facility. A smartphone in comparison to a DSLR takes ages to focus and does it fairly inconsistently in low light.
  • Speed – This creates a hell of a difference between the two. A smartphone camera takes time to load the camera app and then some additional time is required for auto focus thing. On the other hand a DSLR is ready to use in just a moment.
  • Processor – A mobile phone Processor is much less photographically efficient compared to a DSLR Processor. A DSLR processor helps autofocus, Color reproduction, artefact correction, noise correction etc.
  • Flash – A mobile camera flash is an LED with a much shorter range. A DSLR camera flash is a Xenon with much larger range and it imparts much more light compared to a mobile phone camera flash.

These are just some of the most basic shortcomings of a mobile phone camera when compared to a DSLR. Hence, for all those looking for some serious Photography goals, go and buy a DSLR now and enroll yourself in Zebra Institute Photography Training Program..
