Manual settings for either photo or video can help quite a lot to improve quality and get some good shots
Comment from : Sylvain Coppens d'Eeckenbrugge

I can't wait until mirrorless cameras are the size of smartphones. Just imagine pulling up a 1/4 inch camera and throwing on a lens for pro-level results. One day!

Thanks for the video! For recording just videos at home to fill beauty/health tutorials where I would mostly film at home, rely on natural light + soft boxes, and want auto focus and a wide shot, would you recommend a DSLR or an iPhone XS/11?

I shoot with a DSLR because it has over the years become ergonomically correct for most photographers. It is a specialized tool. It is more pleasing to use. Compared to a good DSLR a smartphone very very slow.

I think if that is all you have on you at the moment or if you can't use a DSLR where you want to film, its more than good enough to get what you need. but I agree the quality ius not DSLR level, but it's pretty damn good

Camera lenses are great. But I feel like professional camera companies could've done alot better to help compete with cellphones. The questions people aren't asking is "why is a cellphone who is design to perform a multitude of other tasks, better at doing the only 2 things a (professional) camera is design to do (pictures & videos) as big as they are in general? You would think they'd pack them up with whatever cellphone cameras have and more as optional for the price. I guess all my extra cash goes to my sensor size. Wow

The Canon EOS R is a joke
Comment from : Viktor

I bought a Samsung Galaxy S7 back in 2016 when it was new. And i always thought that the video quality and especially the Autofocus system was fantastic.

Since this week i've been starting to use my Sony NEX-5 again for video and apart from the autofocus being a bit troubled sometimes compared to the S7 the image is só much better.

Now that i'm shooting with the NEX-5 i'm flabbergasted by how big the gap still is. I see details in my face with the Sony that just don't exist on the Samsung. No more ghosting and massive grain on video i shoot outside at night. Video outdoors is very crisp and eventhough it's just the kitlens that bokeh is great.

The only downside to it is that for vlogging outside i'll still use the S7 because the Sony doesn't have a flip out screen.

Smartphones are great if we're comparing them to <$200 digital cameras. But even compared to a WX-500 by Sony, a SX730 by Canon or like mine, a 9 year old $100 NEX-5 By sony they're just lacking in 50million ways.

Phone research, technology and development will move orders of magnitude faster than "camera" technology because the sheer number of phones sold is so much higher. Smartphones are just at the beginning. I think what we are seeing is the software being more important than we have historically thought. We all think it is all about sensor, but the future is going to tell a story about it being all about software processing of the images. When the phones take over though, what is going to happen soon thereafter is the software tech will move into dslrs and mirrorless. The other thing about basing "quality" on sensor size is so much is ignored. You can "swap" a lens in 2 seconds on a smartphone. A smartphone is always with you. A smartphone can fit into a little crevice you could never get a camera into. A smartphone will have better stabilization because the sensor is smaller etc. I think we need to stop thinking it is all about sensors, because it is not. Soderberg is shooting Hollywood films on the iphone, and he is completely giddy about using it. In ten years I bet we will all be surprised how often phones are being used. Even today I do not have any clue why youtubers are using such large rigs. Absolutely no reason for it.
Comment from : direction BANGKOK

One reason I prefer an actual camera is that I love the history of how photography actually is. The feel and depth of a picture taken from a dslr and SLR is breathtaking and if shot in raw, you'll get a clear understanding of why a dslr is a good choice.
If you're looking for a Nikon, I am using a d3500 as this is a entry level camera and suitable for beginners in photography. Check my video out. I finally got it.

Guys if you want to see actuall iPhone XS. Capable check other videos from famous YouTuber and don’t believe these specification idiot and also there is a limition but not more as these idoit told if you try u can do better photos and videos than dslr and I am sure that u may suprise with it and mobile is more easy portable dslr

I really wish getting usable quality video was as easy with my DSLR apsc Sony cameras as my now old Samsung S7 which will film in anything from VGA 640x480 up to UHD 3840x2160 including FHD 60fps 1920x1080 (with slowmo as well). It includes stills within filming on most resolutions. There is also video stabilisation and optical image stabilisation. I wish they would put an ASPC size sensor in a phone lol or use the same software on a camera!

Hey Matti why are you always squishing your eyes and face in ALL your videos? It looks as if it is painful. Hope to see you more relaxed in future videos. Keep it up.
Comment from : Juan Castro

Camera manufacturers have been struggling with battery life on mirrorless cameras, and that's just with standard camera features, so I dread to think how bad it would be if they tried to implement more software based processing.

Xperia XZ2 introduced it. It has 4K HDR recording but as a separate mode. The quality of that is unreal for a smartphone but it should be viewed only on HDR screens. Will have to colour correct it for normal screens.

The 5D Mark IV has an HDR video mode, but it's restricted to 1080p @30 fps in IPB mode. I believe the EOS R also has this feature, and it might be available in more framerate/codec settings.

Comment from : Kirsten Pribula

Great points! About real camera HDR, the EOS-R you’re using has an HDR mode. It’s buried in the menus and is only accessible in specific modes so it’s easy to miss. It is effective, though. You should try it out!
Comment from : CarOnTheWall

Agree with you Matti, but the Tech nowdays helps a lot in moments you need to shoot something. Just we have to be able to do a great job with a tool in our hands. I love my DSLR. but i need to learn more about my baby.

I actually did cover this topic in brief form about a year ago - youtu.be/hCptUusPoWE
But until they mount a 1 inch or larger sensor on smartphones I'll always chose my DSLR or mirrorless camera for better images. There is just so much more potential for the person who knows how to use it well.

Comment from : Media Addict

Tomáš Gál
This is why I unsubscribed. You try to be technical but in many points you are wrong or you just guess. Of course big camera have better sensor performance but when you talk about HDR you missed technical part by years :-D and saying that wide angle is not possible with phone sensor and you even mention crop factor ..... You had similar flaws also in GoPro video. Total amateur without proper research....

Comment from : Rob Overholt

Smartphone HDR takes advantage of a niche. As long as your video fall within that parameter the video will appear satisfactory. The DSLR has the same potential albeit not as advanced under Program or Auto. Outside of the presets, you can go even further with customization. Something you can't do with your phone.

Phones are smarter than cameras. That’s the advantage they have. It can’t make up for it’s tiny sensor but it does a damn great job of trying!!!

Krishna Roy Mallick
Hello matty, big fan... I use mobile phone for all the vlogs. Highest view on my channel is shot on mobile. I use one plus 5 mobile as its front camera has very good EIS. I also have 80D but don't use 80D as its bulky and in public places where we generally visit 80D bring attention and people ask us not to use DSLR for shooting. So for my style of vlogging mobile is best.

Google should make a camera. I want to see their ridiculously good processing with powerful camera hardware.

Smartphones will be a popular choice for film making as you have it with all time including editing apps and the computer to do it on. Most videos end up on social media so how much quality do you actually need. I think f stoppers did a bikini shoot on an iPhone and the results were pretty impressive, of course a hot model helps a lot !
Camera companies can learn a lot from smartphone manufacturers on using software in the hardware. Yrs bigger sensors, better glass, more mega pixels resolution in a dslr / mirrorless will give you better results. However if they just fir social media will any one really care !

Great video Matti! :)
I think in the near future, journalists and TV reporters will start using phones more in the field. But for real proffesional film making, documentaries etc., nothing comes close to the high end camera set-ups. Also, playing with lights and using portable light looks way better than any HDR software will in a long time.

Comment from : Mathias Steiro

Randal Alan Smith
I'm in the habit of underexposing my iphone JPEGs, to expose for the highlights. Then I lift the shadows in post (with the iOS editor). That's what this "HDR Video" looks like. Not a combined exposure, but just a lift (and resulting flattening) of the Shadows band to correct only the face-detection area.

Not neccesarily so with bigger sensor having better dynamic range. Take Canon APSC vs Panasonic M43. The M43 camera outperforms the Canon APSC cameras in dynamic range.

This is why I love sony, their innovation in technology is inspiring and very welcomed as it means more bang for buck. I love being able to shoot real 4k full frame with no b.s. crop and not having to worry about compression and upscaled 1080p.

What if Apple started making DSLRs? They wouldn't let us insert a Card for sure. We'll have to pay extra for extra inbuilt memory. And maybe it would do planned obsolescence to it too. God damn it! This is scary
Comment from : Practical Theory

Brian Bassett
Hey Matti and the YouTube world! Just wanted to point out that this is a very good point that our cell phones do have incredible dynamic range, like the Galaxy s9plus with its two lenses it can adjust for two exposures at the same time.. **However DSLR cameras are doing this HDR thing as well for example the Canon 77D does HDR video, the 77D also features an HDR Movie mode that can be used to achieve greater highlight and shadow detail when recording in high contrast scenarios. This mode captures two HD frames at different exposures, one normal and one underexposed, in short succession at up to 60 fps and then composites them during playback at 30 fps to create a movie with a longer-appearing dynamic range.
Comment from : Brian Bassett

I think smartphone manufacturer's call it computational photography / videography. I think the downside is the processors in DSLR and Mirrorless. How good are the processors when compared to smartphone processors? I'm not a fan of HDR anyway.
