Photographer Shoots Same Photoshoot With A Professional Camera And The New iPhone 11, Compares The Results

Published 4 weeks ago

As soon as the iPhone 11 Pro was announced, people instantly started comparing its triple cameras to stovetops and coconuts. Funny design aside, the latest iPhone is a direct competitor to Android devices like the Google Pixel 3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10, who have pretty impressive cameras themselves. To see just how good the new iPhone’s camera is, professional wedding photographers Jamie and Lauren Eichar decided to do some field testing: he shot the same photoshoot with his professional Canon 5D Mark IV camera and the iPhone 11 and compared the results.

In an interview with Bored Panda, Jamie said the couple got into wedding photography by accident. “My wife and I had only been dating at the time for 1 month and some good friends of ours were getting married and asked us to photograph their wedding because of our interest in photography,” said the photographer.

It all started as a hobby but soon enough many of their friends started asking the couple to shoot their weddings. “People liked having familiar faces behind the camera and a really great discount from beginner photographers who weren’t doing so bad at it,” said Jamie. “Once we had a decent enough portfolio, we asked ourselves if we wanted to really go for this full time. As the weddings continued to snowball we got more and more serious about wedding photography.” Seven years later, the couple has photographed around 150 weddings and say they love it.

Jamie says that he loves to always have a phone camera on him. “It’s easy to mess around with it in whatever setting we’re in everyday life… playing with our nieces and nephew, going on a hike, or traveling we’ve got an impressive little camera right with us.”

“We started pulling out our phones for a few extra portrait images on wedding days and engagement shoots as a way to send the couple teaser images as they wait to get all of their photos back,” says the photographer. “Once portrait mode became a thing, we’ve wanted to make this video to show off what the iPhone is capable of. Not until the iPhone 11 came out, did it actually feel like the quality was this good that we could fool people to think that it’s from our professional DSLR.”

When asked why he chose an iPhone and not any other phone, Jamie said the fact that it includes 3 different focal lengths without sacrificing the sensor quality really makes the phone stand out. “In other phones that try to do the same thing, often they will have one great camera and the others will be there more as a gimmick,” added the photographer. “Also, portrait mode on the iPhone 11 Pro is definitely stands out as the best at simulating the effect of true depth of field that you would get from a DSLR.”

People had mixed opinions about the comparison

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Something that always peeks his interests is old technology, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
