      Scary how good the Pixel 4 is, very small sensor. But you can easily tell it apart from a DSLR, software can only do so much, big sensor there is no replacement for that. That Bokeh from the Sony is beautiful! I wonder what the Pixel 5 will bring next year

    I'm upgrading from a Moto g7 play to a pixel 4 and the camera is one of the reasons I just wish it was brighter

    Right now the only advantage of the camera is the depth of field, with good eye you can take similar picture with the smartphone, with the camera you can editing at the max level. Another thing, you can't notice the difference between camera and smartphone in physical pictures 3" X 7" you can't notice the difference up to the size 4' X 3' (poster)..... Is hard to admit but... That's the reality.

    All my guesses are wrong except the last one with the leaf, I thought the software on the phone will give the photos more colors and more depth of field, but I got it wrong XD

    Thanks a lot for this great video ♥

    Average person looks at these images on a 6" phone screen or a 15" Laptop or a 24" monitor... Its a compressed RU-clip video and its at 1080p, it would be hard to tell the difference.

    Raw files or even the JPEG's on the other hand, the difference will be VERY noticeable.

    On my 32" 4K 10Bit panel I can tell the difference between images shot from my D700 and my Panasonic LX100 with ease due to the sensor size alone, Images off my Pixel 3a look horrible in comparison... On my phone they look great, on a 32" 4K 10Bit Panel not so much.

    u cannot compare here becoz ur video is 720p. it is a joke phone camera vs a7riii with gm lense. also picture quality is a big different and u can use lightroom to make whatever u want.. camera is real pic from shutter and phone is a boost software to make beauty pic.. its hdr image from phone. if u use hdr on camera i think its more amazing and far quality.

    Some are easy
    You can just tell from the DOF
    No matter how fancy the camera on a smartphone, it will never be able to mimic the natural DOF from DSLR lenses

    Comparing a phone and a pro camera is really exaggerated. Any well trained photographer would pick anything with glass and sensor and capabilities to take picture and still make great picture anyway. I’m tired of people keep comparing picture from a phone vs a camera because it’s very different kind of technology with various pros and cons which cannot be compare together.

    I watched this video on a 55 4K Sony TV, a professional camera is much better, on small screens from smartphones it is not noticeable, but when you watch on TV you notice all the little things
