Cameras on modern smartphones are becoming quite advanced. From taking studio-like stage light effect to DSLR-like shallow depth-of-field, smartphone cameras can help you achieve results close to professional photography. Modern phones come with a slew of high-end features and built-in applications, not all phones support time lapse and slow motion.
