  • dSLR or Cell Phone Camera?

    For those of you that have a dSLR camera, lens, the whole kit 'n' kaboodle ... do you use it all that often anymore, now that cell phone cameras are getting so much better? I just ordered a phone upgrade today - LONG overdue ... I'm going from a Samsung Galaxy 5 to the S9+ (eeek!!!) - and the new phone will have double lens, so it's "supposed" to be really good for wide angle AND close up shots, with a great D.O.F. feature.

    Don't get me wrong, I love my dSLR, but I'm wondering if, in reality, I'll use it all that much anymore?

    I am not all that techie so my phone is pretty basic. Not sure when I will have a phone that will take photos that I feel are comparable to my dSLR. So... I see myself sticking with my Nikon for now. Be sure to keep us posted about how you like your new phone and it's camera.

      I lugged my dSLR along on our last overseas trip, and I didn't regret it. I liked having the ability to zoom without losing photo quality (something I dislike about zooming in with the phone camera), and also being able to quickly and easily switch to different modes (something that my phone may do, but far be it from me to have that figured out after .... 4 years). I also use the dSLR any time I have to photo projects or food for blog posts, or I want to get a good wide angle shot of something. All that said, 95% of my 'everyday' photos are take with my phone.

        I can't recall the last time I took my big camera with me My iPhone 8+ is always with me and I mostly just snapshots anyway
        But if I go for some sightseeing yes I would take the big camera too

          I do tend to use my cell phone most of the time for candid shots and stuff. But like Carrie mentioned, I am not thrilled with any of the photos I take where I have to zoom in. The quality is just not the same, so I still used my DSLR for traveling, sporting events, sightseeing, that kind of thing. Cell phone for everyday shots for sure.

            I love my cell phone for everyday convenience, but my Dslr for events and game viewing.

              I am using my iPhone about 90percent of the time - I'm kind of frustrated that I haven't used my DSLR more... I do tend to use it more in the winter months (low light & bokeh). Having said that, I'm grateful for the iPhone because it's the one that's with me all. the. time.

                Eek! My new phone has arrived - and there's a bunch of pre-set options built into the camera - like a setting for food, professional, wide angle, and ... OMG, I'm going to have fun playing with this!
