quick comparison between iphone 14 PM and a 12 year old Nikon. The photos with the reflex were taken in Raw: all eg photos were edited on the fly to get the best results. In my opinion, the impact of computational photography can be seen: phone photos seem less "real". What do you think?

Your 14PM’s pics look very artificial and over-sharpened, for sure. But it’s still pretty cool to see smartphones able to capture similar pictures to digital cameras of years past.

There’s just so much tech packed into thin package.

Well yes! the camera is from 2010 and was 12 years ahead of phones at the time

Nikon all the way, to be honest :) For example, here is your first Nikon photo (it took me 2 minutes to adjust it in Lightroom) :)

wow !!! btw I noticed that in Nikon photos there was much more "material" to work with photo retouching ... And now, for completeness, night photos. Here, too, the retouching margins were significantly greater with the Nikon photo; however the phone gets along VERY well and produces a more detailed photo (the Nikon was with ISO 400 and time 10 seconds, on a tripod)

1) iPhone out pf the box
2) IPhone edited
3) Reflex edited
