iPhone vs. DSLR: The San Gabriels
« on: January 06, 2017, 09:56:13 PM »

I live within easy view of the San Gabriel mountain range in SoCal and have spent many years trying to catch views of the various weather occurrences that dance among the peaks. I've got a nice little collection of stock photos, most shot with non-DSLR long-range zoom cameras.

This week it rained and today when it cleared I expected some nice snow up there, but no. Nevertheless, my little walk gave me an opportunity to compare shooting the mountains with the iPhone I always have on my belt vs. my Canon EOS Rebel T3 which I have to purposefully dig out of the closet.

And here are the results! Second photo taken at 130mm zoom out of 300.

You know, some professional and renown photographers go out of their way to shoot with iPhones. I guess there's something to be said about the art of photography, rather than the equipment...

Thanks Vincent, agreed. Though in terms of long-lens reach, the iPhone doesn't cut it.
