40 Incredible Photos Captured with SmartPhones

Advertisement

Smartphones have become an important element of our daily life, more important than their predecessors, the good old traditional mobile phones, to be honest. Smartphones can do so much more. They are your camera, organizer, music player, audio- or video-recorder and even replace our PCs or laptops to some extent. In this collection, we are showcasing photographs that have been captured using different smartphones.

The reason why these photographs are of excellent quality is not only that the camera used produces professional results. It is also the art of the photographer to shoot extraordinary scenes. You can have the best camera available and still create odd pictures. The photographers in the following collection combine good technical equipment and skills. What is your favorite picture? Would you recommend other sources of Smartphoneography? Have your say in the comments!

  • Bhavesh Soren, 08 November 2012

    So impressed. Need Part II of this post.

    Nice list! This really shows how cameras in smartphones have evolved during the years!

  • jenda^^, 11 November 2012

    Nice pictures. But I’d like to correct that e.g. those Sony Ericssons are not smartphones but ordinary “dumb” phones. :-)

  • planetbomba, 21 November 2012

    WOW is all I can say

  • mindfreeze, 21 November 2012

    Great pictures. Don’t know, if it’s random, but the pictures I like best are all shot with an iPhone. Pretty cliched that the airplane photo was taken by a blackberry user.

    • Gazaian@Twitter, 21 November 2012

      I have to disagree, personally I think the ones from the Sony phone were pretty impressive. Then again, the iPhone 4S uses a Sony built camera, which explains why some of them looked good.

  • shashinka, 23 November 2012

    Nice images, but I do have wonder, how you enlarge to 8×10 or how they look when printed larger than 3R?

    • Gary Pearson, 24 November 2012

      Hi, I had one of my photos “Amber making the most of the sunshine” that appears in the 40 photos in this article, and was taken on an IPhone 4S, enlarged to 24x24ins onto a stretched canvas, and in my opinion it is on a par in image quality with many 35mm digital SLR cameras of 7 – 10 years ago. Indeed when I compare it to some similar size images that I have on canvas that were taken with my previous camera, a 10mp Nikon d80, you would be hard pressed to tell which ones were taken with the Nikon, and which one the IPhone 4S. However put it side by side with an Image taken with a modern digital camera, such as my current camera, a Sony NEX 7, and the difference is far more apparent, with my NEX 7 winning on all counts every time. Mobile phone cameras will get better and better, and for the occasional photographer, will most likely replace their normal dedicated point and shoot. But there is always going to be a gap between the mobile phone camera and the dedicated camera as technological advances are made for both, and for the keen amateur, or professional photographer, the mobile phone camera is only ever going to be a back up if they don’t have their beloved SLR/dedicated camera to hand.

    K850i great smartphone!

  • […] Perhaps you should look at the photos taken with pinhole cameras, or with smartphones and the rest. You will be amazed at the images created by some people with smartphones and all kinds of gadgets. In fact, a good photographer can create a better image using a cell phone than a bad photographer using a top of the line camera. http://www.noupe.com/photography/40-…nes-72749.html […]
