The smartphone is one of the most common personal devices in the world today. It can do so much; and the camera function of today’s smartphones get a lot of attention. The earliest smartphone cameras were good for catching a grainy image, but times have changed incredibly quickly. The best smartphones on the market have features formerly reserved for dedicated cameras. Optical image stabilization, better autofocus systems, shutter speed adjustments, and tons of creative photo apps make them very attractive. And the number one reason of all is that you’re always going to be carrying your phone with you. So having your phone do double-duty as a camera seems like the obvious answer, right?
The two major players in the professional digital camera world today are DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. Both camera types offer a number of advantages and disadvantages that should be considered before deciding on a new camera body. This is because both DSLRs and mirrorless cameras allow the user to change lenses as desired. And because these lenses are not compatible across brands or type of camera, you’re making a commitment with your choice in camera.
