is the iPhone 7 Increased by camera really comparable to a DSLR?

Along with the big iPhone 7 announcement, Apple made an interesting statement on stage: That its new iPhone camera could struggle with a real DSLR camera. At first glance these sounds ridiculous. The best DSLR cameras of 2016 use optical zoom lenses and directions adjustments – how can software compare with that? So Fstoppers decided to check out the claim by comparing the iPhone is a line of smartphones designed and marketed by Apple Inc 7 Plus with the 7-year-old Nikon D300s

Brusque version: It’s not a very scientific study. An iPhone camera and a full DSLR are not so much separate species as different planets. Comparing what they do is extremely hard. But overall the iPhone seems to fair better than we expected. Image quality, of course, went to the Nikon model, but camera precipitateness was a tie as the iPhone’s software proved a match to the DSLR.

For a better idea, here’s a look at the D300 competition.

The iPhone 7 actually won the video importance round, but there’s a caveat here: The Nikon D300s’s video sucks – it can barely even make it to 720p. There are DSLRs out there that can do far superiority, so take this one with an extra-large grain of salt. Another interesting outcome was that the iPhone 7 beat out the DSLR when it came to ISO exhibit – in other words, it seems the iPhone works better in low light. They didn’t actually test for durability but guessed that the iPhone purpose win that round, and we have to agree on that point.
