The Smartphone market is filled with high end Smartphone that features cameras as strong as 8 to 12 megapixels. These Smartphone cameras come with flash or an illuminated sensor and sometimes a combination of both is used. This is why a lot of people have made Smartphone cameras their only cameras. Smartphone cameras are also helped by various apps available on the applications store that help people use filters and effects to get the wanted result. Now according to a study done by DxOMark Mobile, Smartphone cameras are easily rivaling digital cameras.
DxOMark Mobile’s study has proven one thing at least; Smartphone cameras have come down a very long path. Not too many years ago cameras on mobile phones were hardly even 1 megapixels, but these days you can find cameras on Smartphone having high pixel density and a lot of image filters to help reduce noise.
For example the new iPhone 5 has won the reward for having the best camera on a Smartphone. The consumer reports revealed that iPhone 5 camera has more artifacts in it than any other Smartphone available in the market, it even outnumbers the titan Samsung Galaxy S III.
According to DxOMark Mobile, the benefit of Smartphone cameras shines when people use the video recording feature. While many digital cameras in the market offer video recording, they still cannot rival video recording quality available on a Smartphone. For example, many high end phones offer 720p or 1080p recording right out of the box, while the same cannot be said for digital cameras.
The only downfall of Smartphone cameras is that these use a lot of small sensors that produce a low quality image. To tackle this, Smartphone’s use software filters that often result in a picture that is not of very high quality. The noise on the pictures can however be fixed if manufacturers use better artifacts on the set, just like Apple’s iPhone 5.
