What an iPhone can’t do

Setas de Sevilla with a sunburst - what an iPhone can't do
Setas de Sevilla | 2023

I’ve received quite a few comments why I’ve been using my iPhone 14 Pro a lot lately, and not the Leica. Well, for one, because it has a great camera and a sensor that captures awesome images, and it is the camera that is always with me. But make no mistake. An iPhone (or any other modern “camera-phone”) will (at least with today’s technology), never be able to compete with a full frame sensor. When walking the streets of Seville I carry the iPhone and the SL2-S. And there are scenes like the one in the title image where I know it was worth lugging a 2 kilo camera/lens combo around. To capture the full tonal range of this magnificent building. And a sunburst to go with it. That’s what an iPhone can’t do.

Have a great Friday

  1. Wow Marcus, that is a very beautiful photo!! I totally agree, the iPhone has a great camera but they just can’t keep up with your camera or a Nikon. Happy holiday! 😊
