Canon 5d vs iPhone 4
OK, I know the title of this post sounds a little crazy. How can a camera phone come anywhere near the amazing Canon 5D DSLR? I was doing a lot of testing of the iPhone 4 camera over the weekend and comparing it against the last model of the iPhone. It is a very solid upgrade in quality of the camera and it got me thinking, with the improving technology of point and shoot cameras how far behind are they really when compared to a DSLR. When will wedding photographers move from DSLR cameras to point and shoots? As technology continues to shape Photography I am sure we will see some very different Professional cameras coming out over the next 10 years. Here is a look at the iPhone 4 and how it holds up against a Canon 5d. The first image is the 5d and second is the iPhone 4, click on the images to see the full view (the Canon shot though has been sized down to the size of the iPhone 4 file)

Not bad huh? Although I was somewhat joking that we will see iPhone 4’s as the camera of choice for pros, I do see change happening with technology at the forefront of this change. Just as medium format has turned into somewhat of a novelty item over the past 20 years I think DSLR cameras will also be replaced one day. What do you see the pro camera of the future looking like? Drop us a comment below.
Also a full review of the iPhone 4 camera with photos comparing it to the 3Gs coming up soon.
