The point-and-shoot cameras are back! And will stay
It’s been a well-known con for a while now that more megapixels on your mobile camera do not imply better image quality.
Your camera's 'eye'
In a nutshell, one of the main reasons why DSL₹churn out great quality photos is because their image sensors (which detect light and convert it into pixels) are large. 'Full-frame' DSL₹like the Canon EOS-1D X and Nikon D4S have sensor dimensions of 36x24mm i.e. 864 mm2. The image sensors of most high-end mobile phones like the Apple iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 range between 25-30 mm2, making DSL₹approximately 30x larger. The sensors of high-end compact cameras are generally between 100-250mm2 making them, on an average, 6x as large as those on mobile phones.
