What separates phone cameras from more professional cameras? At this point, largely surface area, where DSLRs have much larger image sensors. Those sensors take up a lot more space, and as sensor size increases, so does lens size.

And we have flirted with larger sensors on phones, as many in our audience might remember the Lumia 1020 and its Oreo disc back. This phone’s sensor is roughly 3 times larger than the sensor in the iPhone 7, but compared to an entry level DSLR, it’s one seventh the size. Those larger DSLR sensors allow proper cameras to use larger pixels and soak up more light to create more photographic images. DSLR’s also benefit from the ability to swap lenses, customizing the camera for specific photo situations.

How can we get around these space limitations on our phones? The newest camera trend for 2016 is including multiple camera sensors, but not all systems are equal. The three examples we’ll focus on for this video are the iPhone 7 Plus, The Huawei Mate 9, and the LG V20. What are the differences? Which might be best for you? Let’s dig in.
