DSLR Camera

DSLR Camera
Digital SLR cameras combine the optics and mechanisms of a traditional single-lens reflex camera with modern digital imaging sensors. This system not only eliminates the need for the traditional photographic film roll (and the painstaking process of developing photos), but also adds loads of other features such as SD memory cards for digital storage, LCD viewfinders, and even the option for filming videos. These days, Digital SLR cameras are an absolute must for professional and amateur photographers alike.

Pros
  • Changeable lenses for wide-angle and telephoto photography.
  • Extremely high-resolution options for fantastic photo quality.
  • Higher dynamic color range for extremely vivid photos.
  • Larger variety of adjustable settings for manual photography.

Cons
  • Bulky and inconvenient to carry around.
  • Sensitive image sensor which are prone to dust and damage.
  • Both the body and lenses can be incredibly expensive.
  • Requires knowledge and experience to utilize to fullest potential.

The choice is clear.

Dslr's are always better than smartphones, for a variety of reasons, including;

  1. The larger sensor of a DSLR means that each pixel is physically larger, making each pixel more sensitive to light, leading to lower noise in your images.

  2. On a smartphone, the lens is not changeable, meaning that you are stuck at one focal length by default. I know people will bring up those awful clip-on lenses but those are poorly designed due to having to be in front of a less than ideal lens that will further reduce image quality.

  3. On a DSLR, you have full control over how your photo is taken, with shutter speed, ISO, aperture and whether you want RAW, all as options to you in manual mode.

More professional way

It's better to use SLR as it's more professional and it has more excellent quality camera than phones. There are phones that has good quality but nothing can beat the quality of the DSLR. Phones are made for random stuffs and is not focus in one thing while DSLR ,it's more focus on shots and the camera itself.

Better Quality

Although its better to have a phone because you can do multiple things with it,thee DSLR Camera has better quality and is made for making either professional photos or just regular photos when you visit some nice places.Sometimes they can be expensive,but I'd rather use them for taking pictures then a phone camera.

Professional

DSLR are professional. If you want professional pictures then go with DSLR, you won't go wrong. I also don't see DSLR as inconvenient to carry. For me, it is handy. As for mobiles, we cannot deny that it is continuously improving its camera but it is still lacking compared to DSLR. Maybe in the future, it might be at its level.

Quality and Reliability

DSLR have superior photo quality but I do agree smartphones are closing the gap in that department. However, smartphone photos in the dark are clearly bad compared to DSLRs. Shooting in low light using smartphones don't guarantee a quality photo.

Quality.

Camera phones can never top the photo quality offered by DSLRs, and rightfully so, since camera phones cost but a teeny tiny fraction of DSLRs. DSLRs are a great investment, despite its cost, as nothing can compare to the high-definition pictures they produce.

Great professional quality

Having the ability to have a DSLR camera will be very handy and needful especially for all who are really photo lovers. One thing that I have notice about people who take pictures is they are fond of taking those in the moment pictures and really want to make a living out of it. I could also suggest for those who really want to expose themselves as photographers. Having the DSLR camera will also give you the opportunity for recording that can be used for YouTube or vlogging.

Professional

DSLRs are professional cameras. They have much clearer and brighter pictures. They are also used in short film making and in capturing natural landscapes. Picture quality is way higher than in a normal smartphone camera.

better photos

Camera phones still can't compare to DSLR cameras. Photos will always come out better with a DSLR. Specially if one is in to photography, a DSLR is the only camera perfect for this hobby/line of profession.

DSLR

I definitely choose DSLR camera rather than my phone’s camera. The photos taken in DSLR camera are of higher quality and resolution. The DSLR also has advance features that are not present in a phone’s camera such as aperture.

Camera

Well, the quality of camera itself, the lenses and everything is just better. The traditional camera, as I like to call it, is better for occasions such as weddings, birthdays and similar occasions to those. No smartphone can capture what traditional camera can. The quality is what matters.

DSLR

It is simply a superior machine. Though most of it consists of the interchangeable lens itself. The full frame cameras will not be passed by mobile cameras for some time, even though the quality of phone cameras is improving every day!

Camera Phone
These days, smartphones have become a standard household product. Just about everyone—from children, to the elderly, and everyone between—owns a smartphone. And as well all know, one of the most convenient features of all smartphones is the ability to take photos on the go. While the camera quality will vary depending on the brand and model, most people would agree that even the cheapest smartphones sport cameras on par with some of the best point-and-shoot digital cameras available on the market today.

Pros
  • Can fit in your pocket.
  • Requires barely any technical knowledge to use.
  • Automatic settings can take professional quality photographs at the push of a button.
  • Comes with built in features like filters and the ability to upload directly to social media.

Cons
  • Minimal degree of manually adjustable settings.
  • Fixed lens makes wide-angle and telephoto photography impossible.
  • Zooming often drastically reduces quality of the photo.
  • Hard to capture moving objects due to poor shutter speeds.

easier and more convenient

I am not a professional photographer, and I really don't have the interest to learn at this moment, hence I think a camera phone is easier for me since my mobile phone is with me always, so I won't forget to bring the camera.

Smartphones

Smartphones are more convenient to use because it's smaller in size making it handier than DSLR cameras. Also Smartphones has a lot of uses than standalone DSLR cameras. Some of the latest smartphones nowadays have cameras that rival the quality and performance of DSLR Cameras.

This one.

I ctually would want to have a DSLR. But, I am a person who doesn't like to carry bug and heavy things around, especially when I go out or travel. So, I would choose a camera phone that I could take everywhere with its multiple purposes.

Phones!

I voted for Camera Phone mainly because it is easier to use. As a beginner, I don't have enough skill to use the DSLR so going with the easier version would be the best. Using a camera phone is also not a bad idea, camera phones can actually take quality pictures and are pretty easy to use even my grandma can do it.

But if I have a chance to learn how to properly use a DSLR it would be great. A DSLR camera is better than camera phone the only downside is they are a lot harder to use.

If you want professional looking pictures then go with the DSLR but if you just want a simple picture with no hassle of bringing extra equipment then go with the handy smartphone. It all depends on use. Even with all the advancement of camera technology on smartphones, DSLR still has the better output quality.

Hard to say for me, since both have their merits. I love my DSLR for high quality shots. I love my cell phone camera for convenience and for not having to lug around a larger camera. Both have their place in my life!

Phone camera is really outstanding because of its convenient. One can just dump the phone in one's pocket and get it out and snap away at a go. So DSLR might bring professionalism but phone camera is portable and worth carrying around.

Yes, convenience is the keyword here. Most special moments that happen to us are not planned and we do not always have with us our professional camera but our trusty smart phones are always there with us, letting us capture moments that otherwise would just be memories in the past.

In as much as I know DSLR Camera is better but we can't deny the fact that phone camera is trending now. Alot of people have gone out of their way to buy a phone that has a very sharp camera. Phone camera is affordable and have very cool features to go with.

The camera phone is great for random, everyday pictures but for occasions that require high quality and professional pictures, the DSLR is the better choice. You won't mind bringing it along if the photo quality really matters. It is expensive though and not too many people think the price is worth it. Of course, if you're a photography enthusiast, you'll likely invest on it.

Choosing between phone and DSLR camera really depends on what pictures you arw going to take and for what your pictures are. Usually when taking selfies or you need to take pictures of landscapes in an instance post them in a social media site, I usually use my camera phone. But when I need to take professional pictures or do photography and join in a contest for example, DSLR is a must.

DSLR will be great in taking good quality photos. There are some features that only a DSLR has. But with a simple day around, I would go with my phone camera. This is the reason why we should always consider the camera before buying a phone. We may not be able to buy oma DSLR, but a phone camera can stilk provide quality photos.

I love the DSLR camera not really for using but for the technical specifications that I had read. My husband is a camera enthusiast although he swears that he is just an amateur. When he learned that I was planning to buy a DSLR camera for his birthday he was quick to reject the idea. The DSLR is nice with the good lens that can capture crisp photos. But it is for the professional and not cost-effective when used by an amateur.

As much as I would want a DSLR Camera, I find it luxurious to have. It would be a big advantage though and could not be compared with a Camera Phone because they are made solely for taking photos. On the other hand, I find the Camera Phone more handy because they are used almost every time in our daily life. Even if you forgot to bring a DSLR Camera, a Camera Phone would always be available for taking pictures.

DSLR Camera vs Camera Phone" I will choose the DSLR in terms of te quality of the image it can produce compare to the camera phone. DSLR can change ny kind of lenses that will capture depends on what you prefer to be the result unlike in camera phone. Camera phone acess was limited in taking a picture. I will soggest to use DSLR specially in any occassions or events rather to use your camera phone.

A phone camera can never compare to a dslr for dealing with low light and overall exposure control. That being said, there are plenty of great phone photographers on Instagram. Focus on subject and composition and lighting and it’ll make you that much better once you can afford a DSLR

If you use camera for a living well a dslr camera is the right choice. You can capture great photos using this camera. But if you are just want to capture good photos there is already a wide range of camera phone with good specs like the dslr camera. You just have to find the right item that would suit your taste ,needs and budget.
