Beach walk


I did bring my 6D and my 24-70 L lens, but I never had these with me when I felt like shooting. Not to worry, of course: the iPhone 5s is doing a pretty good job in taking snapshots and in combination with Snapseed (which is likely the best smartphone filter factory out there) or like here b/w post processing in Silver Efex Pro on my Mac, you still get quite decent results as shown.

But then again, when you look a little closer at these photos they simply cannot compete with a DSLR. Not surprisingly, of course. But I am still amazed that there are people out there, who seriously claim an iPhone (or Samsung Galaxy if you prefer) can already – or soon will – replace a DSLR.
Frankly: these people are idiots. Now, don’t get me wrong: you sure can take a great photo with your phone and yes: the best camera is the one that you have with you, which I nicely confirmed just above. And yet, with all filter trickery one can come up with, when it comes to pure photo quality even the best smartphone camera will never be able to compete with a DSLR. And I do not expect this to change anytime soon.
