  1. Apple's next iPhone may include a camera capable of providing DSLR-quality images. Daring Fireball's John Gruber admitted as much during a recent episode of his podcast "The Talk Show" where he said a "birdie of a birdie" passed along the...

    Capable of dslr-quality images? not with a lens and a sensor that small. its just another gimmick. I can't wait for all the people who actually know anything about photography to chime in on this junk.

    In optics, size does matter, and no Apple gimmicky Sony-made sensor is gonna challenge that any time soon.

    Agreed. Optical physics would require the iphone 7S to be the size of a pool table in order to approach DSLR quality.
  6. We will wear pool tablets.

    Human senses can be tricked. although 1:1 direct would never be possible, there is no reason to think the pics can't be manipulated to fool our eyes.

    Actually it was the 4S in 2011.
    Y'all keep doubting apple will make it work just "pool" table needed.
  9. I guess it all depends on who's taking the pictures: A trained photographer will probably shoot better pictures with a smartphone in perfect conditions than Joe Average will do with a high-end DSLR in bad conditions...
    But as others have said: no way any smartphone can get the same result as a DSLR in all conditions. However, it is possible a DSLR can get the same results as a smartphone.
    But what am I saying? If this really is from Apple, then it must be true.;)
  10. Yeah... No. LOL

    The argument that it is the photographer as much as the camera holds some truth but then it goes for any camera isn't it?

    And that is not what the article claims. They claim the camera will have the same image quality as a DSLR which is complete BS.
