Capturing the Moment: iPhone vs Digital Camera

With so much new technology occurring in the convenience of your phone, it’s no wonder why some might ask, “Is it better to capture the moment through a digital camera or my smartphone?”  Well, as with most things, to each their own, but let’s go over some of the pros and cons to help those that are undecided.  For this article we are comparing the iPhone 5 with one of the best point and shoot digital cameras on the market, the Canon Powershot SX260 HS.

Digital Camera:
Higher Megapixels on the market
Over Twice as Heavy
20x Lens
Lower Frames Per Second
Depending on the iPhone you choose, the digital camera can be less expensive
Smaller LCD Screen Size
Unlimited Continuous Shot Mode

Image Stabilization

Predefined Shooting Options

Much lighter than a digital camera
Lower Megapixels Offered
Easier to take traveling
Lens’ must be purchased separately
Same HD Video Quality as a Digital Camera

Higher Frames Per Second

Bigger LCD Screen Size

It may seem that there are many more pros for the Digital Camera, but the iPhone is definitely a competitive option.  With so many of their specs being similar to that of a Point and Shoot, and considering the convenience of the camera being a part of your phone (which most take everywhere with them no matter what), the iPhone is a great candidate to become your new digital camera.  It is there to capture the moment at all times and in all places that you carry your phone with you
