Real cameras will be nearly obsolete in 15 years. It'll just be niche things that keep them around line the grain/look of analog... then again I'm sure there's some filters that will pop up and make it almost  impossible to tell

For the average person yeah. But full on photographers? Not yet. Will just be pro lenses you attach to the phone

He was talking about filters. And I was saying there are already filters capable of what he was talking about lol. If you're a professional photographer and you still want to use a camera that gives it that old vintage grainy look, cool..but there happens to be filters that also do that.

I have a lot of light pollution in my area, so it came out better than I expected.  Here is one I took at front of my house where there is a street light and my neighbor has two fairly bright lamps.  I was between my neighbor's lit lamp posts and the street light and cars were going by during this 30 second exposure. I turned the ISO down to 80, lowest setting my phone will do and it blocked the light sources around me.

I have same phone as in this video.  This astrophotographer opines that the S21U is almost on par with good DSLR cameras. I would probably have to drive 400 miles to get to a dark enough place to attempt any like these. Note the trick on this phone is its sensor pixels are a little smaller than Apple's but Apple does no pixel binding as far as I understand, where the Samsung throws a huge 108 megapixel sensor that binds 4 pixel into one for low light settings, giving it a more normal size overall night sensor if just count bound pixels but with about 3 times the light capture capacity, and you have flexibility to use the full sensor unbound in daylight.

@NFL2K5 it shows up when you are doing really large prints, or when you need to crop and zoom.  1080p is fine for exactly the right shot viewed on a screen.   It's not good enough if you need to crop afterwards, or display somewhere besides on a screen.

There's also depth of field effects that a small aperture and more light.   Those get easier with a bigger sensor.

From an every day person pov, I agree cellphones are great.  I haven't rushed out to get more professional equipment.  But there are circumstances where I would, no question.

This video is a fair comparison
 

 

It's definitely close and an impressive performance by the phone.

When I'm doing a photoshoot, I want as many options as possible in post production.  I don't want to depend on my phone pulling off the shot and filtering using their defaults.  But I haven't done a photoshoot in long time.

Some of the comments are also insightful.  Delivery format matters:

At first i watched this video on my phone and thought why the hell am i not able to see to any difference what so ever; then i slapped myself after watching it on the TV.

 

All that said, I think lots of people spent too much on cameras in the past without ever making much use of them.  If you want great photographs, the first thing to purchase is a lighting kit.
