good luck trying to take a quality low light photo on any phone camera.

for the type of consumer who doesn't do any post editing or does not need a high dynamic range the phones are more than adequate especially with the new 3 lens setup, which i really like.

also if you are trying to get rid of your Pentax equipment i will gladly take it off your hands.

phone cameras have come a long way, but they have not come close to replacing what a large sensor and interchangeable lens can do

After smart phones innovation, handheld cameras are dead. I have a SLR Pentax with a ton of lenses and it's collecting dust in the closet. There has been hype about a new iPhone and it's all over the internet. Not sure what will be the next tech item?

In before the flood of people who bought recently for $249 asking how they can get Buydig to PA. Waiting for $149. There must be a ton of these. The camera and zoom were $150 previously.

Wow DA has changed a ton since my last visit.

How much post processing is done to those photos?

Do you have any other photos taken with this camera?

I barely edited them. Just changed the brightness a little. Nothing significant.

Although smartphone camera quality is improving, it still has a ways to go compared to the true cameras.
Smartphones have definitely surpassed point and shoots, however.

I still remember those clowns who were laughing when Samsung first started incorporating cameras on to their flip phones. Look who is laughing now.

So why do non-pro photographers (i.e. normal people) spend thousands on these mirrorless cameras? How much worse is this camera than a Sony A7 series?
