There is no doubt that smartphone camera’s are replacing point and shoots, but putting the iPhone 5 camera up against a DSLR is just asking for a smackdown. Dustin Curtiscreator of Svbtle, decided that it was time to see exactly how much the iPhone 5 was lacking when up against professional gear.

iPhone 5 vs DSLR – Find out How Apple’s Smartphone Stacks Up

He took his Canon 5D Mark III and it schooled the iPhone 5, but the surprising thing is that the 4 inch smartphone didn’t completely embarrass itself. If you take a closer look at the photos above you’ll see the Canon 5D Mark III is on the right and the iPhone 5 on the left.

It’s surprising but the iPhone 5 isn’t shockingly different, if you’re not a professional I can’t really see why you would want to drop coin on an extra piece of gear.

If you want to check out some more photos please head over to Dustin Curtis’ website.
