When people ask me what kind of camera I use, I tell them I use a View Camera. What kind of view camera is the inevitable response to which I reply- my iPhone.
“The iPhone is not a view camera”
“Of course it is. It has a “ground glass” same as my 8x10 Sinar.
Then the next predictable question even from professional photographers.
“Is the quality any good?”
My practiced response is “Do you mean “Quality” or Resolution and Pixels counts?
Quality is an Essence and has nothing to do with the amount of pixels in a camera. It has nothing to do with how big the blow up of your ego is.
The “Quality” —the Essence of the iPhone images is as good as any camera I’ve ever used.
“It don’t mean a thing/
If it ain’t got that Swing.”
