Why do we have cameras?

We have cameras because cats.

So will the iPhone ever replace the DSLR camera?

No.

It will complement it, sure., I take a lot of iPhone pictures. You always have it, and it’s so easy to Facebook a pic. But it will never replace it.

Look at my photos. What can an iPhone not do that a DSLR can?

  • Use a real flash
  • Get those blurry backgrounds (yeah yeah, the oPhone 7 has a second lens to fake it);
  • Shoot at high ISOs with great quality
  • Do macro shots.
  • Shoot at fast (controlled) shutter speeds.
  • Have enough megapixels.
  • Give the user control over focus mode and focus area, ISO, aperture, white balance,…
  • Create large prints (like 40 inch across).

There’s so much more. The laws of physics do not allow a small camera to do what a large camera does. It is as simple as that. So there will always be a market for both.
