DSLR vs Phone camera

Updated: May 27

I bought a DSLR few years back as I wanted to take my photography to next level. I used it extensively, took it everywhere I went, even though it was a major inconvenience, it didn’t matter much because I loved it. Then something happened, I bought a new smartphone. It had this amazing camera with all the latest features including the pro mode, so naturally I loved it more. It was enough for me to completely forget my DSLR.

The qurantine was hard initially because I couldn’t go out any more and take pictures. So I figured why not start taking pictures indoor with all the fancy things I own (books and gourmet teas). I started with my phone camera but something didn’t feel right, eventually I realised it was time for my DSLR to be of soe use. And as I had no work at all I took several pictures with phone and then with DSLR as an experiment and I found this-

DSLR: Canon 750D (18-55mm lens)



PROS:

  1. Depth of field

  2. Image quality

  3. Colors, details, ambience

  4. Control over angles


CONS:

  1. Expensive

  2. Learning curve

  3. Not very handy

Phone: Redmi Note 7 Pro



PROS:

  1. Easy to use

  2. Cheap

  3. Lots of available apps/filters

  4. Portable


CONS:

  1. Image quality

  2. Not that defined depth of field

  3. Modifies the colors

In the end, I feel, it doesn’t matter how costly your camera is, or how many lenses you own, if you have that spark, it will be very hard to hide it.
