The easiest way to have any of us roll our eyes, is whenever we see any smartphone camera compared with that of a DSLR, or having professional photographers claiming that they leave their DSLR at home because of a particular smartphone camera performance. Yes, we have seen smartphone cameras get significantly better this year, but are they really that good to replace a professional camera? Someone seems to believe it can, and just published a video to prove it.
The iPhone 6s was recently compared to the Nikon D750 DSLR in 4K video recording, and surprisingly the iPhone 6s won in color reproduction, contrast, etc. Yes, this is hard to believe, but when you notice the resulting footage at 200% zoom, the iPhone oddly does a better job at providing detail. It’s important to note that this video was shot in ideal lighting conditions, where the DSLR would’ve obviously won the challenge in low light.
DSLR cameras weren’t necessarily made for shooting video, but it’s the standard that many look for today thanks to the flexibility of their optics. Whether this comparison was fair or not is hard to claim, but what we do know is that Nikon better step its game up.
