Winners Of The Mobile Photography Awards 2016 Will Leave You Entirely Awestruck

Mobile phone cameras of today deliver picture quality almost in line with high-end professional cameras. A decade ago, such a thing was unheard of. Phone cameras delivered grainy, pixilated pictures, which simply could not compete with those taken from a DSLR. However, that’s changed.

While some people don’t seem too happy comparing pictures taken on a mobile phone to those taken on high-end equipment, others have decided to embrace it. They acknowledge that there are instances when a cell phone camera can capture images which may be impossible to with bulky equipment.
