The highly designed camera-equipped Smartphones have been giving strong competition to dedicated cameras. Although, the quality of pictures taken by iPhone has improved considerably over the years but still there are many areas where iPhone stands nowhere front of a pro-camera. Following are 5 cameras offering something which iPhone can’t.
1. Resolution-Sony RX100:
There’s always an ongoing debate over what should be the maximum number of megapixels. Some say that maximum requirement has to be 8 megapixels while others keep arguing that there is need for more pixels. However, the truth is pixel count does matter but only when you’re a sensor for backing it up. Sony RX100 is having a 20.2 megapixel CMOS sensor. This 1.0 inch sensor is larger than those available in a majority of Smartphones offering camera feature. In a layman’s language, Sony RX100 is capable of capturing pictures far more astutely than iPhone without compromising with the quality of picture.
There are various other features available in this camera which certainly shows that it has an edge over an iPhone.
2. Canon Powershot GIX:
There’s no denying fact that photos taken by iPhone may appear to look good on a 3.5 inch screen but if you want to produce a larger print, then the same picture taken by iPhone on a larger monitor, and you might notice a considerable decline in the image’s quality. In recent times, many Canon Cameras have been launched into the market for tackling the competition. The Canon Powershot GIX can store images in 14-bit RAW format which helps in making them far more adaptable.
This camera also boasts a 1.5 inch, 14.3 megapixel CMOS sensor. It’s having 4X zoom option and is available at $799. Make sure to check out Pricegrabber Canon cameras to find some of the most affordable deals
3. Casio Exilim EX-ZR200
When you’re taking pictures of something motion, then split-second timing can have huge impact on the image quality. This split second decides whether the picture is awesome or awkward. The facility of burst mode is greatly helpful in such situations because if you happen to miss the click at the first go, then there’s very less chance to take a perfect picture with an iPhone. Canon Exilim EX-ZR200 can capture action-freezing up to an astonishing 30 frames per second at 16 megapixels.
4. Samsung WB850F
Most of the Smartphones cameras don’t have optical zoom facility and this also applies to iPhone. If you wish to get close to the object to wish click, you’re required to move closer towards it. However, this problem doesn’t exist in compact cameras, and Samsung WB850F is not an exception. Supposing you’ve a 23 wide angle lens, then you can have 21x optical zoom through this camera. This shows the huge difference between a compact camera and Smartphone. It’s having Wi-Fi connectivity which ensures instant-sharing of pictures on platforms such as Facebook and Picasa. There are many more cameras which hold an edge over an iPhone because of various features offered by them.
As I so often say, iPhone does seriously lack some features. In-spite of its being the worlds best smartphone, it has quite limited camera functions in the camera app. But when you have lacks of apps waiting in the app store, almost anything can be done. We will today add burst mode to iPhone Camera with the help of a simple app, from the app store.
Almost all iPhones (except the first gen.) can capture videos natively, though the quality differs to an extent. The native photos app also comes with an additional features for editing videos. You can effectively trim videos to cut off the useless part and keep only what you want. So, you do not need any extra apps for that!
