    I am not sure man. I mean a DSLR system can improve by leap and bound. But how good can a picture quality goes if it's printed on a 4R photo paper, or i would say even if printed on a large print, there's also a limit on how good can a image quality be.

    If a phone camera picture quality reaches the current DSLR level and DSLR improves to a god-like level, can we say that the phone camera is good enough to do the job.

    I am sure 20 years ago, if you ask any band whether a mobile phone can perform what they are performing, without thinking, they would simply say "IMPOSSIBLE".

    u will see a surge of new photographers never before seen. suddenly noise of shutter clicking becomes a major source of noise pollution that gahmen need to discuss in parliament... but some MPs will be biased.. bcos they using ipod... some use iphones...



    Until the day apple already conquer the mobile phone and pc market and decides to compete in the photography market.

    they'll tell the market that there's no need for digital photo frames. all you need is:

    iPaper

    just paste it anywhere.

    essentially it's just a piece of paper with 3M tape behind to stick it to the wall. but hey, it's shiny, feels good and it's APPLE!

    Shoot. Call. Text. Text. Shoot. Call. Shoot. Angry Birds. Shoot.

    I don't think so.

    USA - A wedding photographer and a wedding videographer believe that they are the first pair to shoot an entire wedding using only the iPhone 4.

    Videographer Rainer Flor got married in November 2010 and offered his wedding for the experimental shoot.

    Professional photographer Brian Adams used two iPhones to shoot the wedding, and added different accessories to make the photos look different.

    Adams also had an assistant to help with lighting subjects.

    Describing his experiment to website iphoneshooters.com, he said: "We proved that the iPhone technology is advanced enough to handle an event like a wedding, and simple enough that it doesn’t take a lot of experience or extra equipment to shoot high-quality video and pictures,"

    "The user still has to have some creativity and a good eye, but this gives them a great tool."

    Using an iPhone for the shoot also had certain advantages. Adams said that the phones were small, so the guests at the beach wedding felt that the photographers were not an intrusion at the ceremony.

    Then probably the photos got to be printed real small to get some image quality..I definitely won't go for it

    Yeah the images have to be printed real small. Put them on the computer and you will realise the shots taken indoors are smudged all over by noise.

    The best camera currently in ANY phone (including the iPhone) is in the Nokia N8 (shocked apple fanbois?). So why is it we are comparing a substandard camera-phone (atleast camera-wise) to a DSLR?

    Hey, you forgot to mention when people start to fan themselves using that piece of paper, it will become iFan

    and when you accidentally tear it into two doing the fanning motion...

    you can call it..

    iCry...

    because you probably paid $50 for it

    (shocked apple fanbois?)

    The wedding photographers should start offering an alternative iphone wedding package, which allows instant upload of pics to the couple's FB on the night itself, with wacky effects processed by those numerous aps. Iphone Premium Wedding Photography Package. Maybe can charge more than when u use D3S or 1DSM3 to shoot

    because Mr Jobs thinks that his product is capable of whatever a DSLR can do (which is taking pictures), but doing so at such a crappy quality (which he doesn't mention)

    Agreed! There are much better camera mobile phones than the iPhone currently.

    The wacky effects the iPhone apps can produce may be fun, but the pictures are only fine at web sizes. Larger than that they pretty much suck.

    Small imaging sensor found in phone will never be able to outperform DSLR, in terms of quality.

    Its simply physics limitation.

    A small sensor will be very sensitive to noise issues. In electronics, there are shot-noise and contact-noise, and both are impossible to eliminate. These noise will reduce the Signal To Noise Ratio, SNR, which give rise to ur fuzzy picture in lowlight.

    You can have god-like algorithms or "noise cancelling" circuit in the phones, but will still never be as good as the SNR in a proper camera.

    Next u will have highlight bleeding in the small sensors. If u read up on CCD/CMOS sensor, small sensor have small charge wells (collect photons). An intense light will cause the photons to "flow over" into other charge well, thus u get a bright fuzzy cloud across the image.

    And many more limitations on a small sensor.

    There is this video about the photographer who used an Nokia N8 to shoot a fashion model for a magazine cover. Pls dun be fool by it or even by this thread article. Read carefully and u will always see that they use professional lighting to achieve good SNR.

    can iphone take out DSLR, the answer is no, reason:

    1) iphone cannot talk ultra wide, dslr with lens like 10-22mm(Canon crop) or 17-40(Canon FF) can.

    2) iphone cannot talk super zoom like >300mm, dslr can.

    3)iphone do not have big aperture for fast lowlight speed, dslr can.

    4) iphone cannot have nice bokeh, dslr can.

    5) iphone cannot take raw.

    the list continues...
