25/366 - Blooming Comparison

I found a few lone blooms today (the rains really have the plants confused) and captured them with both the iPhone and my Nikon...just to see the difference/similarities....

The rains seem to have jump started Spring here on the Lost Coast of California.
I really like the Depth of Field the Nikon brings to the table here, along with the smoother background (lots less noise)
(Taken with Nikon 3200 ~ 18-200mm lens
f9.0 ~ 125mm ~ 1/200 ~ ISO200)

Bloom Comparison
The iPhone brings the ability to shoot macro without changing lenses and is easier to 
carry in the rain!

  1. Wow that iPhone quality tho. I hear the 7 will bring even better quality!

  2. I have an Android and don't get that quality.

    LOVE the Nikon one and had already thought 'DoF' before reading your own comment on it. The i-pic is nice... in a chocolate box sort of way. I must admit I occasionally lament not having a more 'portable' unit than the 'Fudge' at times; she's a heavy little beast! YAM xx

  4. Are you pointing and shooting with your phone or manually controlling things? Our S6 does a great job and somehow sometimes seems like the aperture is changing but of course it is not. If only we had some flowers . . .


    1. I just point and shoot. The aperture doesn't change, but the speed does...the exact stats come up n Flickr, I'll start posting them so I (we) can see if they make a difference. There are a few apps out there that can "supposedly" control the aperture...but I'm not quite that motivated :-).


Thanks for stopping by!
