Here’s an infographic of the results from a 1-month research by The Geekaphone in the context of it being a serious alternative to expensive standalone cameras. Written in 5 parts, the graphic tells us why the iPhone is the most used camera in the world.
In some ways, comparing the camera in the iPhone 4 to a high end DSLR is like comparing a hamburger from the local pub to an 18 oz. porterhouse from Peter Luger’s Steak House in New York. Yet, the hamburger is pretty darned good and most people eat hamburgers more often than they do expensive prime grade steaks. A comparison of this nature is unfair to the iPhone. It’s not designed to compete with a DSLR and to expect it to compete at that level is unrealistic. However, it is a camera, among other things, and we compare cameras of different levels all the time.
