Google’s former SVP suggests you should buy an iPhone “if you truly care about great photography” – DIY Photography

Vic Gundotra, Google’s former Senior Vice President, recently published quite a passionate praise of the iPhone 7’s camera. He didn’t just call it the killer of DSLR, but also pointed out advantages of the iOS over Android. Not something you’d expect from a former Google’s SVP, right? In a Facebook…

  1. I think he’s underestimating how many people still think buying a DSLR will make them a photographer. My brother’s wife wanted one, i convinced him that he’s better off getting the updated iPhone, given her needs.

  2. I suppose it has to do with limitations: an iphone or Android can take good photos across a table or selfies (maybe without the bokeh). If you’re photos will live only on the screen, then mobiles are fine. But if you’re shooting wide angle landscapes or long shots for printing or if you want to shoot RAW and adjust the photo then of course you need the tools to do that. If you shoot within the camera or phone’s limitations, they’re both useful.

  3. I took this on my iPhone 5S last week at St Ives, edited with Adobe Ps Express

    This is ok looking at it on a phone screen, but try printing it on an A4 print or larger and you’ll quickly see the limitations of tiny sensors.

  4. Given that I take photos of wildlife… iPhone or my current phone isn’t the best option. Many animals won’t let you get too close and some of the smaller animals (grass bugs) will actively hide behind blades of grass if they can see you upto 2-3 meters away. Then there’s the butterflies, I bought a lens specifically for them.

    A telephoto lens is required! So no, I disagree with him!

    For landscapes, then yes. I would agree… Even my phone can give my DSLR a good run for it’s money.

  5. No photographer is going to be swayed by this ridiuclous rhetoric. We all know what camera phones can and cannot do. They have their uses. But I have had moments when I am extremely frustrated trying to control my phone’s focus and exposure within its narrow abilities and cursing myself for not having a real camera with me.

  6. I do agree that iPhone photography is much more enjoyable experience than Android, but if you truly care about great photography then please get a dedicated camera. =) kthxbye

  7. Sorry but Samsung Galaxy has a better camera. It takes great photos and you can set it just like any DSLR camera. I don’t take selfies so I don’t need an iPhone. It’s my backup camera if my Sony a7Rii ever stops working. I had 1 iPhone and I kept it a year and traded it out. Hated it.
