I was browsing a mobile phone review web site recently and noticed that some of the leading brands now ship with a 23 megapixel camera. While only two-thirds the resolution of today's top DSLR cameras, it is impressive nevertheless. Reading the review of one particular mobile phone, it described the photos as “... pin sharp, brightly coloured, and full of fine details in both the bright spots and shade. The camera can also be launched and a shot taken faster than with any other mobile device.”
So what are the tangible elements that set the professional photographer apart from the keen amateur?
