New YouTube Video Compares the iPhone 11 Pro’s Camera Versus a Canon DSLR


We’ve seen some pretty impressive picture quality on the iPhone 11 Pro, but YouTube personality Matti Haapoja has now taken things a step further by doing a side-by-side comparison of the vaunted Apple smartphone versus a DSLR camera worth $7,500.

New YouTube Video Compares the iPhone 11 Pro's Camera Versus a Canon DSLR

In the YouTube video, Haapoja reveals five pairs of images, one taken by a Canon 1DX Mark II and the other, an iPhone 11 Pro. The quality of the photos were quite similar with a few notable differences. Comments have said that the best way to know which one was taken by the iPhone 11 Pro was to look for the bokeh effect and background, which were more exaggerated compared to the Canon DSLR.

The YouTube video cements the fact that the iPhone’s camera has come a long way. The Canon 1DX Mark II is a high-end DSLR, and costs many times more than an iPhone 11 Pro.
