IPhone X and SLR comparison at Jack London State Park
The Age of the iPhone
It’s hard to beat the portability and versatility of an iPhone. Not only do I use it to take pictures, but it also uses GPS to track my hikes, recording location, elevation, and distance traveled. I can then use the GPS data to tag the pictures take from my 80D which lacks automated geo-tagging.
Of course, a camera phone still has a long ways to compete with the huge and heavy 100-400mm zoom lens (on an crop sensor and with a 1.4X extender too!) I use for most wildlife closeups. But what about landscape photos?
- Images shot using Photo mode
- Shot in HEIF and subsequently converted to JPEG
Canon 5D mk 4
- 24mm f/2.8 IS USM
- Shot in A+ mode (Auto exposure and Auto Area focus mode)

All photos downsampled to 1000px horizontally. 667px vert for Canon, 750px for iPhone.
