Best Mobile Phone Cameras - Guide to Travel Photography
As we have mentioned in our guide to Photography camera is secondory in taking pictures creativity and right time and right moment are more important. There is no equalent of the DSLR cameras however the cell phone cameras have certainly made photography lot easier. Here is the list of the latest phones that have best cameras in the cell phones.
This phone although discontimued has the best camera of all and nearly equalant to a DSLR camera it uses a carl zeis lense and the windows software of the phone only saves the picture that is taken by the phone not modified by the software.
In the modern Phones following phones have good cameras
1. Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus
Galaxy S10 Plus' is equipped with an identical 12-megapixel unit with dual-aperture (f/1.5 or f/2.4) and a 12-megapixel f/2.4 2x zoom camera. there is an ultra-wide 16-megapixel unit, with a field of view equivalent to a 12mm full frame lens.
The dual-aperture camera remains as impressive as ever, capable of capturing some truly stunning images in low-light conditions.
2. Huawei Mate 20 Pro: Triple-camera threat
Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro has a rather unusual triple-camera in it. The standard 40-megapixel RGB camera is capable of capturing images with greater dynamic range than ever before, with less visual noise. This works with a – frankly rather excellent – 20-megapixel wide-angle lens, which shoots at the full-frame camera equivalent focal length of 16mm, which means you can shoot large groups of people from up close without using panorama mode.
The third camera – an 8-megapixel 3x telephoto lens (80mm equivalent focal length) – merely adds optical zoom. Notably, this is the only lens that’s optically stabilised, but what’s most impressive is that the Mate 20 Pro is capable of capturing images at a maximum 102,400 ISO sensitivity.
The aim here is to capture better-looking shots in low-light conditions, and it works rather well. No matter the lighting conditions, the Mate 20 Pro’s triple cameras are perfectly capable of capturing intricate details such as wispy cloud layers, far off brickwork and puddle reflections with ease – this is a wonderfully versatile smartphone camera setup, albeit with a sky-high asking price.
3. iPhone Xs and Xs Max: Best for video
Apple’s iPhone Xs is the most expensive phone on the list – and the priciest phone ever released for that matter – but it does a mighty fine job of taking reliable photos and crisp, steady 4K video at 60fps.
The X has two cameras on the rear, both 12 megapixels, both using Sony sensors. One is a wide-angle camera, the other a 2x telephoto lens. The key difference between this and last year's iPhone X is that the sensor for the main camera now has larger pixels (up from 1.22um to 1.4um here), which enhances its abilities in low and poor light – and video – with the software having to work less hard to produce cleaner, sharper images.
While still image quality is excellent – with the Xs building on Apple’s excellent portrait mode – the best thing is the iPhone Xs' video capabilities. Capturing footage at 4K resolution at a maximum framerate of 60fps, no other smartphone’s video efforts come close when it comes to this level of quality. It’s absurdly expensive, but that’s the sky-high price you pay for excellent-quality video on-the-go.
4. Google Pixel 3: Best for portrait shots
Just missing out on the podium, the Pixel 3’s camera is still remarkable. Featuring an almost identical 12-megapixel rear snapper to the previous Google phone, the Pixel 2's wide f/1.8 aperture sensor features both optical and electronic image stabilisation for seriously stable shots.
The Pixel 3’s wide aperture is well suited for low-light photography and in
good light, the Pixel 3 produced pictures with superb dynamic range and colour
saturation, while the white balance was nice and accurate. And with Google
improving the performance of its HDR+ processing algorithms, it’s quicker to
capture images as well.
The Pixel really does set a brand new smartphone photography benchmark, distancing itself even further from its predecessor, but what truly makes this phone stand out is its portrait mode capabilities. Whether you use the front- or rear-facing camera, every portrait shot is captured beautifully, with nicely-blurred backgrounds and crisp, definable edges around the subject. The Pixel 3 offers the best camera for your Instagram vanity shots.
Key specs - Rear camera: 12.2-megapixel; Aperture: f/1.8; Stabilisation: optical; Video resolution: 4K at 30fps; Front camera: Dual 8-megapixel
5. OnePlus 6T: The best mid-range camera
The One Plus 6T’s rear snapper incorporates one 16-megapixel, f/1.7 main camera and another, 20-megapixel f/1.7 camera right beside it. Both work hand in hand to produce fantastic-quality snaps and some of the best we’ve seen on a device at this price.
Just like with the iPhone 8 Plus, the 20-megapixel camera helps with producing an iPhone-like Bokeh effect on portrait shots. The quality is great, and although it’s not right up there with the Galaxy S9, it’s very impressive for the money.
Key specs - Rear camera: 16-megapixel, 20-megapixel; Aperture: f/1.7; Stabilisation: optical; Video resolution: 2160p at 60fps; Front camera: 16-megapixel
6. Motorola Moto G7: The best camera on a budget
The cheapest option on this list, Motorola’s Moto G7 offers the best smartphone camera for close to £200. The Moto G7’s dual-camera arrangement, with a 12-megapixel f/1.8 lens and 5-megapixel f/2.2 depth sensor, captured an abundance of detail, with stunningly sharp image definition.
Outdoors, colours were wonderfully accurate picking up plenty of detail in
neighbouring brickwork. It’s even a decent performer indoors too, with visual
noise kept to a minimum. Pick up the Moto G6 if you don’t want to spend too
